Dozens of North Korean Subs Have Left Their Bases… Can’t Be Located
Dozens of North Korean subs left their stations this week and cannot be located. This is the largest deployment of subs since the Korean War.
That accounts for 70% of (N. Korea’s) submarine fleet, which totals 70 ships. This is the largest rate of deployment since the Korean War.
Military sources said, “This is 10 times more than their normal deployment level. Dozens of them left their bases at both coasts, and we are unable to track them.”
They said, “70% of their submarine fleet is not located. We are increasing our surveillance capability to find them.”
They suspect that the unusually high level of N. Korea’s submarine movements may be for further military provocation, and raised their level of alert.
N. Korea also more than doubled its front-line deployment of artillery power, since the high-level talks began.
The sources said, “Since the talks began, their front-line artillery power has more than doubled.”
