South Korean Navy Sets Up New Submarine Command

D-Bo , Feb. 2, 2015, 10:08 a.m.

The Navy has established a separate submarine command in charge of drafting strategy, training and maintenance on Sunday.  It took 23 years since the Navy acquired its first submarine Jangbogo from Germany in 1992 to establish a submarine command, one of just a handful in the world.

"We now have a more efficient, streamlined organization with the establishment of the submarine command," a Navy spokesman said. "This will strengthen our underwater military capacity across the Korean Peninsula."
