Not to mention their subs make more noise than a fart in a tub. You could probably hear them through a conch shell.

The Romeo and Whiskey classes are reportedly being scrapped. There's a new class that has been seen testing that appears influenced by the Kilo and Golf classes.

Don't underestimate their coastal subs. Yes they're small and short range, but a diesel-electric sub in littoral areas is going to be extremely difficult to find under conditions favoring the hunters. Under normal conditions, unless they make a mistake they'll be almost impossible to find.

I don't get all the jokes.

Yous guys are listening to too much propaganda.. I think they have something like 75 submarines.

I'm sure you must know that if they really decided to they would destroy the north of south korea in a day.

It's not hard to make a quiet sub. It's hard to make Giant quiet subs with nuclear reactors on them.

I also can not understand the joking...they have lost whereabouts of these subs correct? that means the subs are doing a good job.
Lets hope it is all just chestbeating.

From what I understand North Korea could rain millions of artillery and missiles down on Soul South Korea every hour.

China doesn't have economic troubles.

They are playing economic chess. Devaluing their currency was a calculated move and it was not an organic, market-driven devaluation.

I'm just wondering if those subs have missile tubes on them.
It's been rumored that they have working missile tubes, and sea launch capable ballistic missiles.

The Whiskey could carry 1, 3, or 4 SS-N-3 cruise missiles. The new boat may have up to three launch tubes in the sail, but the Sang-O and Yono classes only have two torpedo tubes.

Seriously, they would have better luck just blowing themselves up with nukes close to shore then launching an offensive. « sarc »

Maybe the North is tired of Kim and this is a mass suicide type of attack which will lead to his departure when they loose.

Stratigically no one can be this stupid.
What's Kim's ace in the hole or is this just military flexing?

All it takes is one with the right kind of payload to make a whole of people's days real miserable in S. Korea.

Question is if the North Korean subs will be sunk if spotted or allowed to pass on by untouched. . . .

The military conflict is what keeps Kim in power. No war zone, no Kim.

What is 70% of one. They probably have just one submarine. The rest are one man pressurized tubes.

Look at what the South's Hunley. It was more or less a pedal operated tin can with a barrel of gunpowder on a stick, and it managed to sink a ship.

From what I have read the number is 50. That is a lot of subs to keep track of.
Not all will be able to be watched if they are going in different directions.
Up the coast, Down the coast, this way that way , playing the shell game with a payload.

On the side note Someday we will have a discussion with out name calling, making jokes, etc.

Kinda sucks people just can't discuss.

If you can't say something that goes with the discussion why say anything at all?

Just because the media can't find them doesn't mean nobody can.

Oh...I'm sure CNN is on it. (From their chairs.)

Why? Two of their classes are designed to operate in areas sonar doesn't work well, and one is designed to ferry special operations teams. They can wreak havoc with them.
