1. Announcements

The MOD would like to make an announcement. We have received information that a certain flying object had been launched from North Korea at around 7:40 A.M. The flying object remained airborne for over one minute, and it seems to have crashed into the ocean. This has had absolutely no effect on our territorial regions.
