Google translator make it more funny than it is:


It is the middle-range anti-tank guided weapon "real-time" test shooting image carried out at the Attack Test Station on May 30th. It is an anti-tank missile capable of penetrating North Korean tank's reaction gloves and space gloves with a dual-shaped peacock warhead. It succeeded in test shooting and it is said that it is going into mass production from this year. For more information, please see the press release and footage.


Will try to make it readable:


   The Defense Agency and the National Defense Technology Quality Authority said that on May 30, they conducted a quality certification fire test on the first product of the "Hyungung", a medium range guided weapon for infantry, at the Darak test center.
   This is an anti-tank guided weapon for military use, which is replacing the aged 90 - 106mm anti-tank guns and TOW missiles. We have succeeded in domestic development in 2015 and successfully completed mass production preparations.


   This anti-tank guided weapon is the first weapon system of this type developed in Korea. It is also capable of shooting at night. It has excellent performance such as effective range and penetration power, also can be used by infantry and can by mounted on AFVs . In addition, missile have increased lethality thanks to tandem HEAT warhead capable of penetrating ERA and main armor of North Korean tanks.


* Hyungung is fire and forget weapon: A method of tracking the target by self-guading without further manipulation from operator after launching the missile
* Can defeat Reactive armor: modules equipped with explosives between the two plates, using power of explosion to propell plates against shells
* Tandem Warhead: Two warheads are placed in series on the guided missile so that the front warhead first explodes to neutralize the reactive armor of the tank and then the main warhead explodes and penetrates the main armor

   It is easy to operate because it is smaller and lighter than Israel's Spike, which is similar weapon system, and is smaller and lighter than American Javelin, and has excellent export competitiveness in terms of effective range, penetration, optical performance.
