N.K. special forces conduct drills to paraglide into Combined Forces Command | Yonhap

Special forces of the North Korean Army conducted drills for several days in mid-September to infiltrate the South Korea-U.S. Combined Forces Command in Seoul by paraglider, defense officials said Tuesday.

A paraglider is easy to operate, with its equipment weighing a mere 3 to 4 kilograms. North Korean special forces could carry their folded paragliders on their backs and paraglide from a summit to seize a target in a surprise attack.

It is the first time members of North Korean special forces have carried out paragliding infiltration drills aimed at the allies’ command post.
