Photos released by state media on Friday showed Thursday's test involved the same weapon. If the USA prevails, it will be able to sell the vessel.
Attempts by the Pentagon to retrieve remains of U.S. troops from North Korea stopped due to a lack of communication from Pyongyang, U.S. officials said.
Analysts said the multiple tests signaled that North Korea is serious about deploying an operational fleet of the missiles, which could be used in the opening hours of any war with the United States and South Korea.
Retired three-star general Shin Won-shik warned that the Russian-type short-range missile could be capable of evading missile defense systems.

North Korea's Rodong Sinmun newspaper, the mouthpiece of the ruling party, devoted its entire front page and half of page two to the launch on Friday, with 16 pictures, the main one of Kim watching the launch from a camouflaged shelter. "They could carry a nuclear weapon".
Following the collapse of the Trump-Kim meeting, the North had demanded the South proceed with inter-Korean economic projects held back by US-led sanctions against the North.

He said the new launches could only worsen the growing tensions.
"If North Korea pulls out (an ICBM) everyone knows it'll be launched with a nuke", she said.
Ahn said South Korean military officials had assessed a number of potential political motives behind the missile launches.
The tests also likely held a message for domestic audiences created to boost support for Kim's government, he said.
The launches are believed to have marked North Korea's first ballistic missile test in more than 500 days.
"The Kim regime is determined to fight pressure with pressure", said Leif-Eric Easley, a professor at Ewha University in Seoul. "And North Korea's future strategy will be to raise questions about ensuring its security", Cheong Seong-Chang said.
While Kim may not return to launching ICBMs or testing nuclear weapons immediately, he may seek other provocative ways to break the stalemate, Pollack said.
Since then Kim has accused Washington of acting in "bad faith" and given it until the end of the year to change its approach.
