I thought so too, but both PDUTR #27 and IRG N777 give the 1992 version
and the 15th plane. Perhaps it might be a simple typo, since
lower-numbered planes are given on preceding lines as the 1992 version.

I thought the PKS standards were too, but then I heard that North Korean
ones (such as KPS 9566) were filed under the KP- sources. I'm sure
the KS C and KS X standards are South Korean, and filed under the K-
sources, but it doesn't seem to make much sense to have North Korean
sources split across K- and KP- sources. Now I'm not sure anymore what is
going on.
