Fighter, submarines, aircraft carrier and its "Iron Dome": South Korea intends to rearm

South Korea intends to adopt its own air defense missile defense system, similar to the Israeli "Iron Dome". Development should start in the next five years. This is stated in a new defense project for 2021-2025.


As stated in the South Korean Defense Ministry, the military ordered the development of the latest air defense system, similar to the Iron Dome. It is planned that the actual deployment of the new air defense system will begin in the late 2020s or early 2030s.

In addition, the new defense project includes the acquisition of a light aircraft carrier for the Republic's Navy. At the same time, it is not specified which aircraft carrier is planned to be purchased, but it is reported that official procedures for its acquisition will begin in 2021.

Also, in the period until 2025, South Korea intends to begin production of the fifth-generation domestic fighter KF-X, which is still in development. The South Korean military also plans to develop long-range air-to-ground and air-to-ship guided missiles.

The project says that in the period from 2021 to 2025 the construction of submarines with a displacement of 3600 tons and 4000 tons will begin in the country.

In total, South Korea intends to allocate $ 253 billion for the army rearmament program in five years.

It is clarified that the bulk of the new weapons are created for confrontation with North Korea.

      in 30 years from the waters of the Pacific Ocean (in the area of ​​the Mariana Trench) a new Atlantis will rise (there are already predictions) and it will be necessary to colonize it
      who is the first - that and the owner of the Pacific Ocean in the 21st century (taking into account the death of some island countries)

    An analogue of the Iron Dome is extremely relevant for the South Caucasus. Seoul is 50 km from the border with the UK, the cannon artillery is already reaching. Yes, and Israel will not refuse to help, together with the technologies received from Russia will make it possible to create an advanced system.

        Google about KM-SAM ("Cheolmae-2").
        https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/KM-SAM
        KM-Sam, also known as Cheolmae-2 or Cheongung or M-Sam, is a South Korean medium-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) system that was developed by the Defense Development Agency with technical support from Almaz-Antey and "Torch" based on technology from the 9M96 rocket used on the S-350E and S-400 missile systems

    Destroyers like "King Seijon" also exclusively for the fight against North Korea?

    In the next five years, development is just starting, another N number of years for manufacturing and testing, and perhaps by 2030 something will work out. So it may be easier to buy from Israel or there are not enough tugriks, tk. everyone goes to buy American weapons and maintain bases? Do not go to the DPRK, do not teach her how to live and she will not have to resist anyone.

          Exactly
          Finally, after considerable hesitation and succumbing to the insistent assurances of Kim Il Sung, Stalin agreed to conduct a military operation. The details were agreed upon during Kim Il Sung's visit to Moscow in March - April 1950. The main military adviser to the DPRK, Lieutenant General Nikolai Vasiliev, took part in developing the plan for the invasion of the Republic of Korea. On May 27, the USSR Ambassador to the DPRK, Terenty Shtykov, informed Stalin in a telegram that the general plan of the attack was ready and approved by Kim Il Sung.

            Exactly. And the USA was there under the auspices of the UN, repelling the aggression of the north.

                Stalin boycotted this vote, and having received the decision to send international forces to Korea, and condemning the aggression of the north, he did not make such mistakes again

      North Korea, as soon as the money starts running out and it becomes corny there is nothing to eat, according to the worked-out scenario, it starts taking South Korea and the United States to show-off - give money, otherwise I’m like a vigorous Bonboy! They receive the next money and sit quietly until the next time.
      For South Korea, the DPRK is an annoying aggressive misunderstanding at hand, constantly interfering with a peaceful and rich life, forcing them to spend money on weapons, the army and, in fact, on the DPRK itself.

    It's strange. Either they shoot mines in the most threatening direction, or they want to buy an aircraft carrier. Seems to me - not for themselves slaughter bins.

    South Korea is one of the most advanced technology powers in the world.
    Leader in shipbuilding, electronics, automotive.
    He even manages to sell howitzers to Europe, "the cradle of artillery." fellow

    This is a comment, not a document. The Korean Civil War in 1950 is an internal affair of Koreans and no consent of Stalin is needed. In this internal affair of Koreans, Stalin did not directly intervene, while the United States intervened directly and carried out a real genocide of Koreans. Thanks to the United States, not 30 thousand, but 3 million Koreans died. The DPRK bought old weapons from the USSR by exporting gold, silver, monazite. There is a document about this.

    For its nuclear weapons, the DPRK received only sanctions and not a single cent. But Pyongyang understands very well that the fate of Iraq and Libya awaits them without nuclear weapons.

    One can only add that this was a misunderstanding ONLY for South Korea in the past. And now these are misunderstandings for all the countries surrounding the DPRK, while STILL excluding the United States (but including the Russian Federation). Cancer tumor on the body of the world community.

    DPRK is an example of sustainable development. They are under blockade and consume practically nothing from the rest of the world. Their harmful emissions are insignificant. They don't have the coronavirus epidemic. Only thanks to their nuclear weapons a new war in Korea did not start. If such a state is a "misunderstanding" and a "cancer" for the so-called "world community", then nothing good awaits this very "world community".
