Unha-3 • Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4

North Korea claims that on October 2015 is planned launch of Unha-3 rocket with Kwangmyŏngsŏng 4 satellite atop. It will be fourth attempt (there is no serious confirmation about results of last three launches) of launching North Korean satellite into orbit. Kwangmyŏngsŏng 4 is probably reconnaissance satellite, but after launch of Kwangmyŏngsŏng-3 there was no signal detected which could confirm that satellite is operational. According some sources launch is hoax aimed to hide another ICBM test.

UPDATE: As far as there is no official confirmation about launch it should be considered as delayed.

UPDATE: No confirmation of launch or failure of rocket. Launch is probably postponed to 2016.

UPDATE: According Reuters it is possible that launch will be performed in February.
