WASHINGTON D.C. — A former U.S intelligence officer has said that North Korea's soldiers mostly carry fake weapons during their mass-scale parades.

According to Michael Pregent, many of the weapons flaunted by menacing-looking North Korean soldiers during their displays are dummies.

Pregent claims even the soldiers' sunglasses wouldn't be fit for war.

The former agent was asked to look at photographs from an April 15 military parade in North Korea's capital, Pyongyang.

After viewing the photos, Pregent suggested many of the guns were not real. He said that many of the soldiers might have even been supplied with toys, in a move aimed at showing off their strength to the world.

"This was more about sending a message than being combat effective," Pregen, who is now an adjunct fellow at conservative think-tank Hudson Institute, told Fox News.

Images from the parade which was held to mark the 105th birthday of North Korea's founder Kim II-sung show what appear to be North Korean commandos carrying AK-47 rifles with attached grenade launchers.

But according to Pregent, the objects seen affixed to the rifles are actually 'helical' magazines, designed to store bullets in a spiral shape.

Pregent says theses magazines are often faulty because they frequently jam.

The former intelligence officer also doubts that the AK-47s are even loaded since North Korea is believed to have shortages of domestically produced ammunition.

Pregent also believes many of the accessories worn by the North Korean soldiers are not military-grade.

The sunglasses donned by the 'special ops commandos' are regular, fat-face frames that offer limited protection for the eyes.

Pregent described the 'weapons' as "laughable" because "you can see the plastic is over the muzzle."

Though he concedes Pyongyang may have strong RPG capability, Pregent voiced his opinion that the soldiers on display during the parade were likely supplied with toy missiles "because Kim Jong-Un doesn't want them to launch one at the viewing stand."
