The Pokpung-Ho Tank M-2002 is a main battle tank (MBT) of North Korea. Pokpung-Ho or “Storm Tiger Model” in Korean, was designed by Second Machine Industry Bureau and produced by Ryu Kyong-su Tank Factory (estimates at year 1992). Western sources codenamed it M-2002, since it made public trials only in 2002. It borrows design concepts from Communist tanks like T-62, T-72, Type 88 and the Chonma-Ho. It is equipped with a 115mm main gun, a 14.5mm anti-aircraft gun and a regular 7.62mm heavy machine gun. It runs at 60 kilometers per hour top speed, an operational range of 500 kilometers and a V12 diesel engine with 1000 hp.
