Battalions of female soldiers took part in the nation’s biggest-ever live firing exercise this week

NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong-un is ready to send up to 500,000 women soldiers to the front line if war with the US breaks out, according to defectors’ estimates.

Battalions of female soldiers took part in the nation’s biggest-ever live firing exercise to mark the 85th anniversary of its military’s creation this week.

Unconfirmed reports suggest there could be up to half a million women in the Korean People’s Army and Kim has told the forces they should be ready for war.

In highly staged scenes, the despot was mobbed by emotional female fighters when he watched firing displays from multiple rocket launcher systems late last year.

It comes as it’s claimed his nuclear tests could trigger a deadly volcanic eruption, and he labelled the US a “blackmailing gangster” that was holding the hermit state at “knifepoint”.
