North Korea has got the newest warships

16
According to RIA "News", with reference to the online portal 38 North, on satellite images obtained from December 2013 to January 2014, you can see two of the latest warships fleet North Korea, standing in the ports of Nampho and Najin.




According to experts, on the new ships of the DPRK there are helipads, as well as special missile systems, allowing to fight with South Korean submarines.

A leading US expert on armaments in North Korea, Joseph Bermudez, said that over the past ten years, North Korean authorities have continued to build a military fleet, despite economic sanctions from the world community, as well as industrial and economic stagnation.

Bermudez noted that the adaptation of new ships to the conduct of marine operations will last for several more years.

According to Bruce Bennett, senior analyst at RAND Corporation, the technical and volumetric characteristics of the new frigates are superior to those of any other warship in the DPRK.

“The appearance of these two new ships will not make North Korea a powerful naval power. In the event of a serious conflict, the combined naval and air forces of the United States and South Korea will easily sink their ships, ”he added.

      The collapse of the USSR is a good lesson for everyone.
      The fifth column and traitors must be put against the wall.
      The United States will not become friends even if you cut your tanks and missiles for scrap.
      The only thing they respect is a strong army.

      They live there not bad, do not starve. No need to distribute false stamps. The whole problem of countries like the DPRK and the USSR is that they do not realize their full military potential. War is certainly bad, but if you already built an army, then use it to unite the country.

        Now they (for their goals there at the turn of the millennium) do not starve for one reason - they beg for international assistance from the same USA and South Korea. Plus, the Chinese are throwing something.
        And common sense does not allow them to use the potential of the army (like the USSR). They also want to live.

        The difference is that the USSR existed without infusions from outside, North Korea exists at the expense of China

    He will not do it, but only further the statements of the "Axis of Evil" against the DPRK, the States do not rock the boat with their allies. Although God forbid live like the people of North Korea

      Yes, the aluminum pelvis of the United States and South Korea are awesome opponents. And these nations themselves are great sailors. The level of Korean Magellans we saw recently in the ferry incident. To destroy so many people because of the lack of professionalism of the command staff! I don’t think their military is better. They are not even taught to determine the stars in the sea - they completely trust their GPS and others' lives. Ugh. Damn the seaman! And that one - we’ll immediately sink :(

    Will do not only ships. They are forced to arm themselves. Dialogue with them is conducted only from a position of strength. Anyway, everything is sliding almost to the 3rd world. And this will continue until the whole world puts Americans on the 5th point. Russia is still a pioneer in this matter, but it is also necessary to give credit to some Western countries, because they, too, are under pressure from the mattresses. In the end, the majority will get tired of it. I hope that I will survive when the evil empire falls apart or at least admits that they are wrong. For whom the truth is, he is stronger.

    In the event of a serious conflict, they will find something more serious, gentlemen, ameroexperts.

    "War is certainly bad, but if you have already built an army, then use it to unite the country."

    It's hard to even imagine such a thing. Completely different levels of technology. Although ... As Iosif Vissarionovich used to say: "Cadres decide everything." Think Vietnam.

    Before the division of the country, people in the north were higher because lived better, but now the opposite. A country exists for people, and not vice versa, if vice versa, then it exists for a very narrow circle of persons - the ruling elite. Korea is a clear example: in the South for people, in the North for Kims.

    the whole problem of a disconnected Korea is that nobody needs a united Korea, and most importantly it is NOT BENEFICIAL and DANGEROUS !!! Imagine a united Korea with developed industry in the South and cheap power in the North ??? Who will then dominate the Asia-Pacific ??? Japan??? China??? USA??? Yes, to hell there ... That’s where they escalate the conflict there by all available methods, at the slightest recognition of the unification of one divided people.

    Of course, I AM FOR THE DPRK! But, they once got caught in fake photographs where thousands of artillery pieces were shown, but in fact, it was a high-quality photo montage!

    If the DPRK spits on American sanctions and the United States themselves, then what do we worry about?
