South Korea plays muscles

South Korea decided to show the whole world, and especially its northern neighbor, with whom there have been many disagreements lately, its increasing military power.


At the same time, the “muscle game” was timed to coincide with the 65 anniversary of the South Korean Armed Forces Day, in honor of which the largest military parade took place in the last 10 years.

According to representatives of the country's military department, the parade was the most ambitious in ten years and is designed to demonstrate that the threat from the DPRK is minimal due to the buildup of the country's military potential.

According to the authorities, 11 of thousands of military personnel took part in the parade, 190 types of military equipment were involved, as well as 120 aircraft and helicopters. Not without a demonstration of new products. Thus, domestic-made cruise missiles were shown, capable of striking at key targets in the territory of the DPRK.

Among the distinguished guests of the parade are the visiting US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and the chairman of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, who is visiting South Korea.

During her ceremonial performance before the participants and spectators of the parade at the airbase in the town of Seongnam, Korean President Park Geun-hye stressed that the creation of a powerful anti-missile defense of the South and opportunities for a preemptive strike would help to contain threats from North Korea weapon. According to her, the situation on the Korean Peninsula now remains very tense.

    Well, well, everything is natural, the main thing is that the generals of the Republic of Kazakhstan do not have a desire to try these "muscles" of theirs in the real case, otherwise there will be trouble ...

      South Korea plays muscles

      There is something to play South Korea. The economic, technological and military potential is huge.
      But S.Korea is not a bastard. She can give it in the teeth, it will not seem a little to anyone. (Moreover, China is behind her).
      Play muscles of South Korea and this-ALL !!!!!

        I don’t know about help from China. On the North Korean Russian-language website http://juche-songun.livejournal.com/ about the Korean War of 1950-1953, there is not a word about military assistance either from China or from the USSR. The technological lag of the DPRK from the Republic of Kazakhstan, of course, is enormous. But according to the military potential, the southerners alone can not cope with the northerners.

          So this is a magazine about modern DPRK, even more about TPK and its leaders. The CPSU, too, didn’t very much like to remember the land-lease laughing
          And so that you are not very upset by the lack of references in the Korean magazine, here is a link to the recollections of one of the employees of the Soviet defense industry. I immediately give a link to the chapter on the war in Korea, but the whole book is no less interesting.

            Quickly read, the information is very interesting, but this is surprising

            AIC’s latest electronic sights with the AN / APG-30AN / APG-30 electronic rangefinder made it possible to fire with very high accuracy, and not from 50-150 meters, but from 2500 meters.


            The weapons of Saber are 12.7 machine guns, it is impossible to shoot from them at 2.5 kilometers.

              But the sight could be installed not only on Saber, as I understand it. This scope was suitable for firing machine guns, cannons and for bombing.
              And even if only on Saber, the pilot still needs time to aim, and at cruising speed, the Saber overcomes 2,5 km in 10 seconds.

              Incidentally, I indicated a slightly different chapter. There, directly about the author’s participation in the events in Korea later in the text, and this introduction, so to speak ... I have long read, I forgot a little smile

              When the food runs out, these Juche ideas can easily be sold for a bowl of rice, and when the southerners show them the mobile phones too, they will sell them nuclear weapons.
              If it’s serious, then I have doubts that the southerners are waiting for the northerners to bring the BOMB to mind, and then buy them together with BAT.

                      1. I can also rant about the mentality of your people, but education makes you restrain your emotions.
                      2. Why should I oppose Juche and democracy? These are different things.
                      3. Democracy in general was "invented" by Plato and Aristotle. At least they have identified its general characteristics. Do you think they are corrupt?
                      4. Even if democracy is not better than Juche (it sounds funny, but suppose), this does not justify the obvious failures of the North Korean leadership in the economy.

                        1. Oh, well, yes, here you are right, with our education it’s bad ...
                        2. Firstly, you understood, secondly, if these were the essence of the same thing, they would not have to be opposed.
                        3. Corruption is a Latin word. The President of Gabon, on the occasion of one of the African-Russian-French scandals, made a special statement, beginning with the words: "There is no such word as corruption in any of our dialects, you created it."
                        Hence the conclusion - everything in the world is relative. And Aristotle, from a modern point of view, may turn out to be a corrupt official, and democracy in those days was possible, because the ancient Greeks did not know such a word - "corruption".
                        4. So democracy is not better than Juche, and the failures of the North Korean leadership in the economy, if realities are not biased, may not exist. There is a bias in the emphasis on the DPRK economy, called the Songun. But if not for the Songun, then North Korea would not exist long ago.

                        Democracy and Juche cannot be compared and opposed because democracy is just a form of government with many options (now in the West it has been cultured and revered as a deity, which personally makes me laugh), and Juche is the national ideology of one particular state . The contrast in the case of the two Koreas is also wrong because the South Caucasus owes its economic prosperity to the military dictatorship of Park Jung-hee. Apparently, I have no illusions about democracy, which some people consider as a panacea, but still Juche is too radical an ideology. And the fact that the DPRK may not exist, so I will not regret; one people must have one state. It is obvious that the South Caucasus is a more successful state than the North Caucasus, which means that South should unite Korea.
                        PS if the issue of unification were discussed in 1960, when the North was ahead of the South in everything that is possible, I would speak in favor of the North.

                        Well, you yourself say that this is an ideology - "now in the West it has been elevated to a cult and is revered as a deity." So how does it differ from the Juche idea then? So that Juche is a purely Korean ideology? But, nevertheless, this is socialism.

                        So the leadership of the DPRK to the waist that they think about it. It acts formally in the interests of its people, remembering its interests. The unification of Korea is now not beneficial to the North Koreans. And not only to the government, but also to the people. They very quickly feel themselves in the position of servants of the rich from the south. And it will not be easy for them to break through to the top. And if you are on the successful side, that is today for some, and tomorrow for those who have more money, then I am on the side of principle. And though not everything is good in the DPRK now, I believe that socialism will triumph.

                        Democracy is a form of government, not ideology.
                        And when evaluating success, one must keep in mind not only the present, but also the prospects. In 1960, the UK had prospects, but Kim Il Sung himself buried them with his Juche, and today only the South has prospects. At the expense of the victory of socialism - you have complete freedom to believe, but not socialism and capitalism are fighting in Korea, but common sense (SC) and outdated prejudices (SC).

          It's funny. That is, when the Japanese bought up their assets from the Americans in the early 80s and the horror of "Asian expansion" swept across the United States, was it all with the approval of the State Department? You have a very superficial understanding of the state of Japanese-American affairs.
          By the way, what is the name of that department in the Japanese government?

    Apart from irritation from his neighbor, this will lead to nothing.
    Of course, it is necessary to solve the Korean problem, but not under the leadership of the United States. The Koreans must show centuries of wisdom, although in the modern world I will not be surprised at anything.

          It is unlikely that China will stand up for North Korea, even the grandfather of Eun-Kim Il Sung in the 60s withdrew all its supporters from the leadership. As for current relations, China does not sell DPRK modern weapons, as the latter does not ask. The refusal to sell J-10 fighter jets even caused Kim Jong Il to cut his visit to China by one day in 2010.
          According to a senior source in North Korea, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, when he visited China in early May 2010, made a corresponding request to Chinese President Hu Jintao. Observers believe that the refusal was the reason why Kim Jong Il shortened his visit by one day.

    Dear colleagues, dear author. I, frankly, did not understand what the words "South Korea is flexing" mean. Has the President of the Republic of Korea done something reprehensible by demonstrating to her fellow citizens confidence in the inviolability of her country's borders ??? Then why don't you, dear author of the article, throw a stone anywhere. In any country, not excluding the Russian Federation, North Korea, China, the United States, parades serve for this. Another question is the artificial division of one nation into two parts. I am more than sure that this will happen and the country will be united. There are two nuances. Who can initiate it. I am more than sure that this will be the result of the work of the PRC (Regional Superpower with a related mentality and serious influence). We (unfortunately) and the USA (to a part), I think, will not be alive at this holiday. If we do, then as extras. And the second thing. If the merger takes place with an orientation towards the north of Korea, it will not be the best option ...

        Dear Omar, I do not argue about junk, but there are a few points
        1. The territory of the DPRK is extremely small, only 120 540 km², which allows you to completely cover it with available air defense systems
        2. Koreans from the time of the Korean War, understand that they will have to act in the conditions of superiority of the enemy in the air, therefore for a long time (about 60 years), they prepared for this: they dug underground shelters, which allowed them to hide most of the industry, primarily defense , management and communication facilities underground. In addition, most of the country is covered in mountains, which does not allow enemy aircraft to strike from high altitudes, and for medium and low altitudes, North Koreans have a large number of air defense systems and MANPADS that allow for ambush operations.
        3. Quite a high level of training of air defense troops (soldiers have been in military service for 10 years)
        4. Attempts to independently upgrade existing air defense systems. An example of a self-propelled air defense system KN-06 and a self-propelled version of the S-125 air defense system I have already cited above. A similar option exists for the S-75. In addition, the North Koreans are actively modernizing the existing ZA installations and creating their own very original developments.
        30-mm SPAAG based on "Shilka", which are installed in order to increase the firing range
        2 allegedly shipborne 30-mm guns AK-230

        30-mm 4-barreled anti-aircraft gun based on ZPU-4, controlled by the ship's radar MR-104

        37 mm ZSU based on the North Korean BTR M-1992

        57-mm twin anti-aircraft guns based on the S-60

        57-mm ZSU M-2012 based on this weapon, similar to ZSU-57-2

            Cool Sanya! If you take garlic --- the DPRK army will break the puppets, without options. And the Yankees will already fall into trouble. It’s possible to connect diplomacy and undercover games, but NO!

                If there is such a failure, then it is not so terrible. Given that, to put it mildly, Russian high-tech weapons are mainly built on the elemental base of a potential enemy.

                No men, unfortunately now on one high spirit and patriotism, which cannot be taken away from the North Koreans. Remember the Korean War, the KPA, having material superiority, defeated the South Koreans. And when the Americans entered the game, only the help of China (people's volunteers) and the USSR (64 IAC) saved the DPRK from complete defeat. Now the roles have changed ... The South Koreans have technological and material superiority. Therefore, the North Korean "blitzkrieg" is unfortunately doomed ...

                    Unfortunately, the question is not "if", but the question "when"? As for the script, I agree: the first violin will be for political technologies.

                        Hu from Kim ?, available. This is his study abroad.
                        It was previously thought that Kim sent his youngest son to study in Switzerland in 1998. It is known that Eun attended a school in Bern in 1998-2000 under the name Pak Un and was listed in school documents as the son of an employee of the DPRK Embassy in Switzerland. However, Swiss journalists from the Le Matin Dimanche and Sonntags Zeitung newspapers, after reviewing the police archives, concluded that this was the second trip of the future North Korean leader to Switzerland. The first time his father sent him to the country of cheese, watches and banks back in 1991, when he was 8 or 9 years old. True, where he studied in the “early” Swiss period, Independent writes, so far it has not been possible to establish. Yes and Raisa Maximovna is.

                        To be honest, it’s disgusting to look at Una, sheer hypocrisy and there is no ideology in the eyes.

          There is no Zyoma, a blitzkrieg is quite possible. If you neutralize the Yankees. And there are enough moves (mothballed) there. Zyoma, have you heard about the raid of SK-saboteurs into the occupied territory? Read, do you like this (I also). then!

    Americans say: Colonel David Hackworth "Second Korean War":
    "... Pyongyang still managed to create one of the most powerful armies in the world. The North Koreans have outdated weapons and military equipment, but their morale is exceptionally high: they are able to fight, receiving a few grains of rice a day, and only surrender then, when they throw a sack over them and tie it up. These are well-trained soldiers accustomed to iron discipline. In battle, their fundamental principles are camouflage, accurate shooting, fire and maneuver. They require small logistics support units. They work well in the dark, although they don't have sophisticated night vision equipment I recently visited the demilitarized zone and noticed that the soldiers on the other side were wearing shabby uniforms with cracked belts, but they had big, rough and calloused hands from constant karate practice. at me, they literally trembled with hatred, like fighting dogs. to clips with cartridges. One soldier who fought against both the Japanese and the North Koreans told me, “Japanese kittens against North Koreans. The latter were the most vile kami I have ever had to deal with. "

    And yet, men, there is no total escape there. It is enough to talk to the hard workers from S. Korea, who work for us in the Far East. No glorification of the Great Leader --- they just say that they believe in him. When they mention the Yankees or this rat Lee Myung-bak (I don’t know about the current woman, probably the same thing) -they start to boil! Read the DV forums.

    They’ll be afraid to speak out against North Korea alone - for the southerners face no chance. 60 years ago, they resisted only thanks to the shamers.

    South Korea is twice as large as North Korea in terms of population - 48,9 million. against 24,7 million, well, think about the DPRK GDP of 32,7 billion US dollars, the South Korean GDP of 1,6 trillion. dollars, but on the territory of the DPRK surpasses South Korea 120,5 thousand square kilometers against 99,3 thousand square kilometers.
    We work with South Koreans, their engineer arrived, around a couple of days, then on my misfortune we treated him with dogwood and rushed drinks just the "crisis" was on the Korean Peninsula. I ask him, they say, you don’t worry, he just waved his hand like Vanya, saying X ... nya, they are doing it, then they will crawl to ask for food again, I ask about the unification of Korea, he’s on X ... we make ends meet, we also have these on the neck, we all saw the unification of Germany. I ask, they say, well, but if there is a war, he answers calmly - we will destroy them, they are fanatics (about the DPRK army).

    I apologize terribly, but the whole article that allegedly wrote to David Hackworth and the link to which you bring is a lime tree from the very beginning to the end. Check the publication date: June 11, 2011. The problem is that, firstly, at that time Col. David H. Hackworth was almost 6 years old in the other world: he died on May 5, 2005. Secondly, the article all the time mentions General Gary E. Luck. General Luck did indeed command the United Nations-South Korean Command (United Nations Command (Korea) / Combined Forces Command / United States Forces Korea). Only now he commanded them from June 15, 1993. on July 9, 1996, after which he resigned directly. The third, and probably the most interesting, in his book “Hazardous Duty” (Dangerous Service), Comrade Hackworth really shares his thoughts on the possibility of a second Korean war ... only he writes exactly the exact opposite - that the whole so-called . the North Korean threat to South Korea from the North is completely contrived, because with the confrontation with the South the North has no chance.
