SEOUL, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's military on Monday conducted a live-fire missile drill after the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s sixth nuclear test on the previous day.

According to the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), the army and the air force carried out the combined live-fire drill early Monday along the east coast.

The army fired Hyunmoo-2A surface-to-surface ballistic missiles and the air force mobilized F-15K fighter jets to fire SLAM-ER precision-guided air-to-surface missiles.

The missiles accurately hit a target in the eastern waters, the JCS said in a statement.

The homegrown Hyunmoo-2A ballistic missile has a 300-km range, with the SLMA-ER missiles capable of flying up to 270 km.
