The most recent missile test likely involved 30-millimeter shells fired with the country's multiple-rocket launchers. The projectiles have a maximum range of 110 miles, and don't violate UN resolutions that prohibit the country from developing ballistic missiles.

North Korea has conducted three missile tests in the past week, raising political tensions as Chinese president Xi Jinping heads to Seoul to discuss the current situation. China is a longtime North Korea ally, and is a major aid supplier to the impoverished country. The North Korean government offered this advice to China, which has growing ties to South Korea: "Don't forget us, don't sell us out."
