I think, they extracted Pu-239 for around dozen war heads, looks it is all they could extract from the last spent fuel pool. So they are moving fast!
War heads are small enough so it can fly far and unexpected improvements in design.
That is why they are restarting Yaobong reactor to burn more Pu.
They are not stupid to keep nucs in artillery range.
Long war is not a question of course.
They do not even need nucs to kill 20 mil !!! in Seoul and surroundings with artillery along....

Perhaps a more sobering thought is: What is the current source term in the
South Korean reactors, their status, current burn-up & status of discharged
fuel assemblies. How many are in artillery range of the north? What are
the potential collateral effects?
