In the near future, the armed forces of the Republic of Korea are expecting a significant reduction, the Chosun Ilbo newspaper reported on Monday. Such plans were voiced recently by the Ministry of National Defense.


Media: South Korea will reduce the number of army by 2022 thousand by 110 year


According to the publication, by the end of 2022, the reform plan envisages a reduction in the army from the current 610 thousand to half a million people. The reform will primarily affect the ground forces, while the number of Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps personnel will not change.

The second notable innovation will be an increase in the share of female military personnel to 8,8%. At the same time, the number of generals in the South Korean army will decrease from the current 430 to the 70-80 people.

Chosun Ilbo also announces an imminent reduction in the length of military service in conscription: from 2022, he will be a year and a half instead of the current 21 month. According to the newspaper, the Ministry of Defense is also developing a new concept of actions of the Armed Forces in the event of serious military provocations by the DPRK, such as artillery shelling and a nuclear missile attack.

In addition, the South Korean military intend to create three special amphibious units, whose task will be to quickly capture the most important objects in North Korea, if necessary, reports TASS

    Nuclear charges do not care How many people die ... There will be 110000 more or less in the South Korean army, the conflict that could happen does not take these numbers into account!

        The army of 610 thousand is quite powerful for the scale of South Korea, and the draft has been preserved. They have good sun.

          The most annoying thing is that not Korean generals, but American ones command this army. The modern sepoys are these South Koreans. hi

    That is, the mobilization potential will NOT actually CHANGE and the army of the Republic of Kazakhstan "wartime" will not change numerically.

      As children, who allow the South Caucasus to collect reservists, at best they will be able to put on military uniforms and help firefighters start to fire numerous fires in the Seoul conglomeration and cordon off radiation zones around the destroyed nuclear power plants ....
      However, good Eun can save everyone from the torment of nuclear explosions in the atmosphere, and the sleeping inhabitants of Yokohama (the Japanese began to talk a lot, completely lost their fear) by an explosion underwater off the coast ...., gee ...

        Do not consider the enemy as stupider than yourself. I am sure that they have already laid down everything in their plans, including the death of Seoul. And of course, they will work out these issues in exercises.
        And do not overestimate the DPRK nuclear weapons. How many does she have? And they still need to be distributed in Guam, the rest of the United States, Japan and Kazakhstan.

          It is not necessary to consider the KPA as stupider as itself, the failure of the mobilization deployment of the Armed Forces of the South, were laid down in the plans of the KPA General Staff ....

          Enough to cause unacceptable damage to Kazakhstan and Japan ....

            No one, outside the DPRK, does not know the exact number of warheads she has. Just a guess. And in them the numbers range from 20 to 60 ... This is LITTLE for causing unacceptable damage, since Korea and Japan have a complex terrain and a lot of mountains. And they greatly reduce the effect of nuclear weapons. Not for nothing that the Americans, during the Korean War, planned to use more chemical weapons than nuclear ones.

              I am not a geologist. But. Explosions in the atmosphere at the Seoul conglomeration, a couple of hits at nuclear power plants in the South Caucasus and Japan (they are all located on the coast), and falling asleep, and then burning, including from the exploding Yokohama gas pipeline and the flooded Seoul subway, they will never know that the mountainousness did not save them enough .....

    We decided to reduce the army (dabout xnumx g), well, let them cut, because this is their internal affair. Now, if you decided to get rid of American bases, then it would be really interesting.

    I remember a once-large country, which was divided into many smaller ones. And there, too, they reduced their armies as a result. - God forbid.

    History sometimes throws out some wonderful somersaults. Suppose only that the Republic of Kazakhstan and the DPRK, in secret from the Americans, conspire with each other and unite. A united Korea will have one of the strongest economies and armies in the world. The Japanese and the US will precipitate. I wish I could see such a theater ...

    As if by that time Kim had not reduced them all to zero, if they did not stop being carried on by American incitement.

    Well done, a hundred thousand from Un will not save, and the money released can be spent on the purchase of a new B and BT ....
    The second notable innovation will be an increase in the proportion of female military personnel to 8,8%.

    Right again. In the words of one of the heroes of the story of G. Harrison, "Bill is the hero of the galaxy," the safest place during the war is the army ....

    Such an army has a better chance of surviving than in the Seoul metro during the rocket attack Una, gee .....

    They learned the positive from Serdyukov’s reform (for this they hate him first of all) ....
