Pyongyang recognized the death of a warship

The North Korean warship sank in October off the coast of the country. Such recognition was made by the authorities of the DPRK, reports the Associated Press with reference to the Central Telegraph Agency of North Korea.


In Pyongyang, they didn’t give details of the crash, stating only that the anti-submarine ship under the hull number 233 sank during “combat duty”. The North Korean authorities did not name the death toll of the crew.

South Korean media claim that at least 19 people have become victims of a shipwreck. Sources in the Korean Ministry of Defense told the newspaper Shosun Ilbo that the sunken ship was built in 1960's, and that its age may have been one of the reasons for the crash. In turn, the agency "Renhap" reported with reference to an anonymous source that the ship sank off the eastern coast of the DPRK near the port of Wonsan.

The ship’s death became known after photographs of the cemetery of fallen soldiers in the North Korean media appeared. The pictures showed a large number of fresh tombstones with photos of sailors. At the same time, the date "October 13" is carved on them.

Information about the North Korean Navy is classified. It is only known that its base is made up of ships built 1960-x-1980-s.

In 2010, the North Korean fleet was at the center of the scandal, after Seoul blamed Pyongyang for the death of its corvette Cheonan and 46 of the sailors on board. According to the South Korean authorities, the ship was sunk by a torpedo fired by the North Korean military. Pyongyang denies this completely.

          I apologize "DPRK". Minus for a mistake is somehow one-sided. And mutual Korea is not needed by anyone. NO ONE!

            Igor! Correct the "sight": no need to introduce new definitions. There is a simple and understandable word for all "united" (united) Korea. Do not be offended by the members of the forum, it is better to be stricter towards yourself. I'm sorry.

      Quite possibly. The sabotage forces of both Koreas have a long tradition.
      And we will probably never learn about the true causes of the incident from the "Northerners".
      Although the "AWL effect" has not yet been canceled ...

    The North Korean Navy is very old, but there is no money for repairs and modernization. It is possible that in the event of an emergency, the age of the ship affected, and he sank. Although another explanation is possible. You can guess as much as you like, but I think the people of the DPRK do not know the truth. A very closed country.

        Yes, funny of course, but damn tired of it. I understand that the journalist most likely typed in Korea a warship in Google and took the first photo he came across, which turned out to be a photo of DDG-981 "Choe Young", but damn it was possible to check which Korea this ship belongs to?

    The most interesting thing is that this news originally sounded like this
    A submarine of the Navy of North Korea crashed off the east coast of the country while on combat duty, Reuters reports citing South Korean sources. According to the publication, at least 19 sailors were killed.
    The incident occurred in the middle of last month, but it became known about it only now. A warship with a displacement of 375 tons sank in the East China Sea near the port city and Wonsan Naval Base. The cause of the disaster, in all likelihood, was the deterioration of the hull and equipment of the submarine.
    No further details of the tragedy were reported.

      The DPRK leader Kim Jong-un visits the memorial in memory of the fallen crew members of a submarine hunter of the DPRK Navy with tail number "233", which sank on October 13, 2013. Wonsan, 02.11.2013 (c) CTAC
      Hi Seryozha, the data as always varies. The death of a North Korean hunter
      November 3rd, 0:01
      On November 2, 2013, the leader of the DPRK, Comrade Kim Jong-un, visited the newly erected memorial near Wonsan in memory of the dead members of the crew of a submarine hunter of the DPRK Navy with tail number "233". At the same time, it was reported that the ship was lost several miles from Wonsan on October 13, 2013, and its crew members "sacrificed on duty in the battle." Judging by the number of plaques on the memorial, the death toll ranged from 25 to 30 people. Neither the North Korean nor the South Korean sides have previously reported this incident.

      Board number "233", according to available data, in the DPRK Navy was worn by a Project 037 submarine hunter (Hainan type) built in China in the 1970s. According to the publication of the South Korean agency Yonhap, citing an unspecified "source", the ship was killed in a non-combat incident during a DPRK naval exercise.

        And if he died of "old age", then this is a wake-up call for the DPRK. So she can very soon remain without a fleet, or rather, only with this

      Anatoly, I agree with you. Only the question arises:
      - where is the ACC of the DPRK fleet? Or do they have no automatic rescue buoys, without which no civilian ship at sea will register?
      - Or were they all on alert, and the ship, playing an overkill, immediately went under water, like Hood from a Bismarck shell?
      - Or do their commanders accustomed to such neglect of death (and to other people's lives) that under no circumstances will they command the abandonment of a sinking ship?
      You can still ask questions from the heels, but they won’t return the Korean guys. I remembered the secret materials about the death of Novorossiysk and the conclusions of the government commission. Vice Admiral Kulakov was directly accused of not organizing the rescue and removal from the battleship of personnel not involved in struggle for the survivability of the ship, which exacerbated the loss.
      Personally, I’m wondering: did someone from the leadership of the DPRK fleet answer (answer?) For the loss of a warship and the death of sailors?

    Updating the fleet of military equipment is a major headache for the DPRK. There is simply no money for the construction of modern ships, even the coastal zone. And the entire fleet of old equipment just crumbles from old age, as you don’t patch it.

    anti-submarine ship hull number 233 sank during "combat duty".

    It was not necessary to start the engine and do not touch anything at all! Want to ride - row oars!

    Easy! In our naval life, during the winter storms and following in the direction of Vladivostok from the south, we usually pressed up to the Korean coast. And if before the 38th parallel patrol ships of the southern met, then after only a storm and complete darkness) Not a soul in the sea! There were timid attempts to make requests on VHF in bad English in the style of "please leave the territorial waters immediately ...." But in winter - NEVER! )) So draw your own conclusions!))
