Just FYI. By quoting Nick Hanson's piece, Paul said the following:

Between 2011 and the end of 2016, North Korea launched a total of 42 ballistic missiles: 20 short-range Scud-type missiles with a range of 300-1,000 km, 10 medium-range No Dong missiles that can fly 1,300-1,500 km, eight intermediate-range Hwasong 10 (Musudan) missiles traditionally assessed to have a range of 3,500-4,000 km, and four submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs).
