"The P'okp'ung-ho or spelled Pokpung-ho (Chosŏn'gŭl: dzȣ; Hanja: ) is a North Korean main battle tank (MBT) developed in the 1990s. The tank may incorporate technology found in the T-62, T-72, Type 88 and Ch'onma-ho MBTs.[6][3] Outside parties codename the tank M-2002 because the tank went through performance trials on February 16, 2002 (therefore being officially confirmed by outside sources), although the tank may have been in existence since 1992…."

Great looking model by GHQ. But you know that on the modern battlefield, that tank is so much Derp.

Target indeed,

I'm sure like most NoKo equipment it wouldn't be too much of a problem. This isn't 1950 … US & ROK forces have many effective Anti-Armor systems. From man-packed, on up to various aircraft ordinance, etc. I'm confident TOWs would make short work of it, etc.
