North Korea is building two submarines capable of carrying ballistic missiles

North Korea is building two submarines capable of carrying ballistic missiles. Reported by news Yonhap agency citing South Korean intelligence.


According to South Korean intelligence, one of the submarines is being built on a modernized version of the Romeo class submarine (a Soviet medium diesel submarine of Project 633, the project of which was transferred to the DPRK by China), as well as on an unidentified project related to medium or large submarines.

The DPRK is building two new submarines capable of carrying submarine ballistic missiles. One of them is a modernized version of a Romeo class submarine, the other is a new one, we classify it as medium or large, we study information

- quotes the agency an excerpt from the report of the National Intelligence Service.

Earlier, American intelligence announced the DPRK's preparation for tests from a submarine of the North Korean ballistic missile Pukkykson-3, first tested in early October 2019. According to the South Korean military, the launched rocket flew 450 km and reached an altitude of 910 km. The declared range of "Polar Star - 3" is 2000 km.

A diesel-electric submarine built in the DPRK, designated in the West as Sinpo-B, is used to test missiles. The submarine has a total displacement of about 2000 tons and is equipped with one silo for ballistic missiles.

The standard carrier of the Pukkykson-3 missiles is likely to be a larger Sinpo-C-type diesel-electric missile submarine under construction in the DPRK at the Sinpo plant with a total displacement of about 3000 tons and three missile silos.

      Despite the impoverished population of its people, Korea itself builds submarines and tanks and has nuclear weapons. Perhaps in the future he will take up aviation. You are right sir, S. Korea can be called a "high-tech state" ..

        North Korea is tough. Imposed on all sides by sanctions, living their own possibilities, with only limited support from China, they are forced, namely, that survive. They do not have the resources, geostrategic position, intellectual and material potential that we have. But they are, in fact, completely independent of transnational capital, all forms of external exploitation of their economy, and successfully resist colonization. Again, they are able, to the best of their ability, to pursue their independent policy, and, in practice, fully possess sovereignty, not in words and declaratively, but in fact.
        Naturally, to ensure these capabilities, they are forced to send a very large share of their funds to ensure their defenses, otherwise they will simply be crushed.
        Whether it makes sense to pursue such a policy is another question. The Poles, for example, squealing happily, lay down not even under the close Europe, but under the distant USA.
        But even they cherish the idea of ​​their own greatness and dignity, and even try to pursue politics in своих interests.
        So I, in a global sense, like the DPRK's position. hi

          So I about the same and completely agree with you. But I didn't describe everything in such detail. And I am well aware of the problems of the DPRK, and I repeat, despite all the difficulties, the Koreans produce almost all the weapons for their army themselves.

            Excuse me generously, I seem to be wrong (or rather, diametrically opposite what ) Understood.
            Then let us rejoice together the achievements of the North Korean comrades in the field of strengthening the defense capability of their country and their successful, which is important, resistance (and, often, outright planting in a puddle) to the militaristic ambitions of the self-proclaimed world "hegemon"!drinks

    The six of China, which dared to carry out a cyberattack on Russian Rostec this year, seem to have gotten something. By the way, South Korea did not join the sanctions against Russia.

    And build on the fear of enemies. The Japanese probably plodded on the mats anticipating the next problems. What remains for the DPRK in today's situation is only to strengthen and re-equip its armed forces.

    It is difficult to call a country that reproduces submarines of the 50s as a high-tech state ...
    He makes tanks, they bought a license from China EMNIP for a number of tank samples, such as our T-55 - T-62. Aviation is a very, very distant prospect.

    We got involved. Laughing. A boat with over 60 years of construction. And even with rockets. Long distances can be covered only by RDP on diesel engines. Very stealthy boat. True, except for one ground-based missile, they have never been tested at full range - well, this is nonsense. They will not fly away, well, the Japanese will sink the boat. A new one will be built ...
