South Korea to Announce THAAD Air Defense Deployment Location on Wednesday
South Korea will announce the location of the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system deployment later on Wednesday, local media reported.


TOKYO (Sputnik) — According to Yonhap news agency citing sources in the South Korean defense ministry, the exact deployment location of the THAAD system designed to intercept ballistic missiles will be announced at 15:00 local time (06:00 GMT).
Earlier, it was reported that sites in the city of Daegu in the North Gyeongsang Province and the city of Pyeongtaek in the Gyeonggi Province are being considered for the defense system deployment.

On July 8, South Korea and the United States announced they agreed to deploy the THAAD system with the US military stationed in South Korea to counter North Korea's missile threat. The THAAD system is designed to intercept short, medium and intermediate ballistic missiles at the terminal incoming stage.

Governments of Russia and China protested the decision, stating that the agreement to deploy the THAAD system will have a highly negative impact on global strategic stability. The United States and South Korean officials addressed the concerns of Beijing and Moscow, reassuring that the system is not directed against any third country.

South Korea to Strengthen Anti-Missile System Near Seoul by 2018


South Korea will strengthen anti-missile system near the capital city of Seoul by 2018 to counter possible attacks from North Korea, local media reported Tuesday, citing the country's Defense Ministry.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Yonhap agency reported that the ministry was in the process of upgrading the PAC-2 Patriot anti-missile system at a military base in Gangwon Province into more effective PAC-3 Patriot system.

"Once the upgrading process for the Gangwon-based missiles is completed in 2018, the PAC-3 missiles there will be relocated to a base near Seoul," the ministry official said as quoted by the media.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that North Korea fired off three ballistic missiles. They were launched from North Hwanghae Province and flew around 600 kilometers (373 miles).

South Korea, US to Conceal THAAD Radar Data With Japan


Seoul and Washington will not share with Tokyo the data obtained via the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile system to be deployed by the United States in South Korea, Yonhap reported on Monday, citing a government source.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Yonhap news agency, the remark came amid speculations that THAAD could be integrated into a broader air defense system operated jointly by Washington and Tokyo.

"The information detected by the THAAD radar won't be going to Tokyo," the source said, as quoted by the media.


Another source told the news agency that the exchange of information on an incoming missile at the terminal phase of flight would not be effective.
On July 8, Washington and Seoul announced that the two countries had reached an agreement to deploy the THAAD in South Korea. The THAAD system is designed to intercept short, medium and intermediate ballistic missiles at the terminal incoming stage. The system's potential deployment on the Korean Peninsula has caused concern in North Korea, as well as China and Russia.

Seoul to Test THAAD Radar Waves Amid Local Population Health Concerns - MoD

he South Korean authorities will carry out additional testing of the electromagnetic emission of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile system to be deployed by the United States in the country in an attempt to alleviate health concerns of the local population, the South Korean Defense Ministry said Tuesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) —Residents of Seongju County, where the system is expected to be deployed, protest against the move over potential negative health effects caused by the electromagnetic waves emanating from the THAAD's radar. On July 18, South Korea's experts carried out a health risk testing on the THAAD system located at the US military base in Guam.


"In the upcoming evaluation on the THAAD battery's environmental impact, we will conduct the same test again to ensure that the anti-missile system does not pose any major health risks to Seongju residents in a reasonable and subjective manner," a spokesman for the Defense Ministry told reporters, as quoted by the Yonhap news agency.

On July 13, the country’s Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn together with Defense Minister Han Min-koo visited the county in a bid to persuade local residents to accept the deployment of the THAAD system. The attempt failed, with locals throwing eggs and water bottles at the officials.

Military Capabilities
South Korea's military to increase number of Hyunmoo missiles, says report
Gabriel Dominguez, London and Neil Gibson, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
16 August 2016
South Korea's military is planning to increase the number of Hyunmoo missiles in its inventory, according to Yonhap news agency. This image shows Hyunmoo 2B ballistic missiles, foreground, and Hyunmoo 3C cruise missiles being displayed in Seoul on Armed Forces Day on 1 October, 2013. Source: PA
South Korea's military will greatly increase the number of Hyunmoo missiles (also known as Hyunmu or Hyon Mu) in its arsenal to better counter North Korea's growing nuclear and missile threats, according to the Yonhap news agency.

Government insiders said the military is devising a plan to simultaneously take out missile bases all across North Korea in times of crisis, the media outlet reported on 14 August.

"To accomplish this, the South needs more ballistic missiles at its disposal," Yonhap quoted an official as saying on condition of anonymity. The source said procuring more short-range Hyunmoo-2 series of tactical ballistic missiles (TBM), which have maximum ranges of 300-500 km, and the 500-1,000 km-range Hyunmoo-3 series of cruise missiles can help Seoul "neutralise" Pyongyang's missile threat.

The source was also quoted as saying that next year's addition of a new type of TBM to South Korea's arsenal with a range of 800 km will enhance Seoul's capability to cover all of North Korea.

According to Yonhap, South Korea's military has identified three belts of North Korean missiles, with the first located about 50-90 km north of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ). This belt reportedly has 500-600 Scud missiles that have ranges of 300-700 km. It said the North has some 40 transporter-erector launchers (TELs) in this belt, which makes the missiles harder to detect.

In the second belt lying 90-120 km north of the DMZ, Pyongyang is known to have placed 200-300 No Dong (also called Rodong) medium-range missiles with a range of around 1,300 km with 30 TELs, the media outlet reported.

In the third belt lying deeper inside the country, the North may have 30-50 Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missiles (IRBMs) and 30 TELs, with the latest reports indicating the deployment of the North's KN-08 long-range missiles, Yonhap added.

Despite United Nations sanctions barring North Korea from conducting any test of nuclear or ballistic missile technology, Pyongyang has engaged in a series of demonstrations of military might over the past few months, including a fourth nuclear test in January and several test launches of Musudan and No Dong missiles.

Un sous-marin sud-coréen explose, 3 morts


Par Rédacteur en chef.
Publié le 17 août 2016, dernière mise à jour le 17 août 2016.



Un sous-marin sud-coréen a explosé mardi, peut-être à cause de l’accumulation de gaz à l’intérieur de la coque.

Le sous-marin était amarré au port depuis le 3 mai pour des essais, avant que ne commencent des réparations de grande ampleur. La marine a lancé une enquête pour déterminer les causes de l’accident.

L’explosion a tué 3 marins et en a blessé 1 autre. Un marin a été retrouvé mort au pied du panneau d’accès de même qu’un autre qui est décédé à l’hôpital. Le corps d’un 3è marin a été retrouvé après des recherches qui ont duré plus de 5 ans.

Le sous-marin était en service depuis plus de 30 ans. Il s’agit de l’un des 9 sous-marins classiques de la classe Jang Bogo (Type U-209/1200).

Simulateur d’Apache pour la Corée du Sud !





Boeing a livré à la République de Corée du Sud le premier simulateur de l’AH-64 E Apache block III. Ce simulateur complet va permettre compléter la formation des futurs équipages de l’hélicoptère de combat. Les premiers AH-64 E « Apache » seront livrés d’ici la fin de cette année.

Le système de simulateur utilise la dernière version de logiciel de vol de l'Apache. Les modèles de simulation de vol et de l'avionique de dernière génération permettent de créer un environnement de formation précis, qui augmente la préparation aux missions. L’ensemble des missions peuvent être simulées avec la palette d’armement disponible. La navigation, le vol sans visibilité et la gestion des pannes pourront être entrainés dans un environnement terrain réaliste typique du pays.

Rappel :

La Corée du Sud avait annoncé le choix du Boeing AH-64 E « Apache » dans le cadre du programme AH-X en avril 2013. Séoul a passé commande pour un premier lot de 36 appareils pour un montant estimé à 1,6 milliards de dollars.

L’Apache E block III est la variante la plus avancée de l'hélicoptère d'attaque. Il dispose d’une avionique et d’un système d’arme amélioré. L’appareil dispose d’une meilleure interopérabilité avec les systèmes aériens sans pilote (drones). Ceci comprend un JTRS (Joint Tactical Radio System), de nouvelles commandes électriques, le nouveau radar de contrôle de tir « Longbow block III ». L’appareil dispose également d’une capacité en réseau permettant une connectivité avec l’ensemble des moyens aérien et terrestre. Question maintenance, les systèmes permettent une diminution des charges notamment en engagement.

“No Negative Effects On Environment, and THAAD Interception Shows A 100% Success Rate”
(Source: South Korea Ministry of Defence; issued August 22, 2016)
-- Successful at the tests a total of 13 times
-- Unrelated to incorporation of the U.S. MD system
-- Only used in the Korean Peninsula on terminal mode
-- Never aiming at China


“THAAD has a success rate of 100%. It is a purely defensive system, and it has been confirmed to have no negative effects on the surrounding environment of the deployment.”

Vice Admiral James Syring, director the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA), visited Korea, and in his interview with MND press corps held at the Joint Chiefs of Staff on August 11 emphasized the interception competence and safety of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), which will be deployed by the U.S. Armed Forces in Korea.

Addressing claims that THAAD had only a 47% success rate, he stated that the actual interception function is ‘100%’ successful.

“Our data confirms that it has a success rate of 100%. This data has been verified by the Operational Test and Evaluation department, in the U.S. Department of Defense. Every time a test is completed, we report the results to the US leadership and the assembly.” said Director Syring.

He confirmed that 6 out of 13 interception tests were short and medium range missile interception tests under 3,000km, while the rest are long-range ones. He also added that the range of the medium-range missile is 3,000-5,500kmand medium-range ballistic missile interception tests will be carried out next year.

On the controversy over the harmfulness of the electromagnetic waves used by THAAD radar, he explained, “Safety evaluations for the THAAD battery to be deployed on the Korean Peninsula have been conducted with the same standards as for TPY-2 radar, specifically. For radars which are now in operation in other locations around the world, there have been no safety issues or accidents reported for local residents in the last 10 years.

As it will be deployed quite far from civilian residential areas, its safety can be guaranteed. It has been also confirmed to have no negative effects on the surrounding environment, including air, soil, animals and plants.”

Director Syring also responded to concerns that the THAAD deployment on the Korean Peninsula would be an incorporation of the U.S. MD system, saying that while this is true when it comes to information sharing, as a matter of the Korea-U.S. alliance, Korea will not be included in the global MD system operated by the U.S.

“It is not true that THAAD to be deployed in Korea will be connected to the U.S. Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC). Radars connected to C2BMC are used for defending the continental U.S. and other regions. The THAAD deployed in Korea would be used in Korea only,” he additionally explained.

He also said the THAAD radar would be operated on Terminal Mode (TM) only, not Forward Based Mode (FBM) mode which detects enemy missiles at the launch stage, actively refuting some claims that it might be used to detect Chinese missile bases.

On the possibility of switching terminal mode to FBM of THAAD, he emphasized that there was no chance the THAAD in Korea would be pointed at China, though he added that in terms of a purely material aspects, it would be possible to make such a switch quickly.

Meanwhile, the US MDA functions for the development of the fighting power and general defense duties of the continental U.S., overseas dispatched units and allies from enemy ballistic missile threats.

South Korea’s Navy to arm its latest frigates with tactical ship-to-land missiles
Aug 25, 2016

South Korea’s Navy will arm its latest frigates with tactical missiles that can strike deep into North Korea, a military source said Sunday.

The plan calls for arming the Incheon-class ships with land-attack missiles that have a range of 150-200 kilometers. The missiles, to be loaded onto the ships starting in September, will allow the frigates the ability to attack key targets in the communist country’s interior from the sea.

“Initially, the plan was to arm batch 2 Incheon-class ships with the tactical missiles, but the government, after conducting feasibility studies, decided to retrofit the batch 1 ships,” the official, who declined to be identified, said. The missiles will be housed in angled canister launchers on deck.

The first batch consisting of six frigates have an empty displacement of some 2,300 tons and were launched starting in 2011. The sixth and last frigate of batch 1 is undergoing sea trials and will join the fleet early next year. The second batch of ships will be heavier with an empty displacement of 2,800 tons.

The frigates that are replacing the aging Ulsan-class frigates and Pohang-class corvettes have a 127-millimeter main gun with point defense being handled by the 20 mm Phalanx system. It also has Rolling Airframe Missiles, or RAMs, for short-range anti-aircraft defense and employs SSM-700K to deal with surface threats as well as torpedoes to destroy submarines.

The decision to arm the relatively small coastal defense ships with tactical missiles comes as Seoul is moving to give the Navy greater flexibility not only to engage enemy ships but also to respond to diverse threats.

“The tactical missiles will greatly enhance the combined fighting ability of South Korea’s armed forces and add another layer of deterrence against North Korean aggression,” he said.

South Korea has already been arming its tactical land-attack missiles on its larger destroyers to take out key North Korean targets in case of conflict. It has, moreover, been moving to upgrade the fighting capability of existing ships with new weapons systems.

The Navy said it plans to deploy short-range anti-aircraft missiles with a range of 20 km on its latest patrol boats that are already armed with anti-ship missiles.

South Korea mulls purchase of four Boeing P-8 Poseidon aircraft, says report

Gabriel Dominguez, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
01 September 2016



The South Korean military may buy four Boeing P-8 Poseidon maritime surveillance aircraft in the wake of the successful test-firing of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) by North Korea on 24 August, the Korea JoongAng Ilbo newspaper quoted a senior government official as saying on 1 September.


"North Korea is preparing a number of strategic ways to attack the South using its submarine fleet on top of the SLBM development," said the official.

"We are discussing whether to purchase the latest maritime patrol aircraft to detect North Korean submarines to prevent surprise attacks from under water," he added.

The official told the paper that South Korea needed to expand the reach of its maritime surveillance, given "the limits of the outdated anti-submarine patrol aircraft currently operated by the navy".

The Republic of Korea Navy (RoKN) currently operates 16 Lockheed Martin P-3C/CK Orion maritime patrol aircraft.

"We need to detect an enemy submarine when it surfaces in our waters," an RoKN official was quoted by the paper as saying. "Doing so requires anti-submarine aircraft with wide surveillance coverage and high speeds. The P-8 Poseidon equipped with the latest detection technology can enhance our operational capability," the official added.

S. Korea to Deploy Guided Missile Against N.K. Hovercraft
(Source: Yonhap news agency; published Sept 01, 2016)
SEOUL --- South Korea plans to deploy a new guided missile next year to counter North Korean hovercraft that have been stationed near the tense western sea border, the defense ministry said Thursday.

The 70-millimeter guided missile Bigung, which weighs 15 kilograms and is 1.9 meters long, will be deployed among Marine Corps forces by the end of 2017. The system will be able to better combat possible attacks by the North's Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) near the Northern Limit Line (NLL) in the West Sea, a ministry official said.

Bigung, which means flying arrow, can be mounted on a truck, it is very mobile and much more versatile and potent compared to coastal artillery used by troops at present. If fully loaded, a truck-mounted launcher can fire up to 40 missiles at once, the official explained.

Each Bigung system is capable of engaging multiple LCACs, with the missiles able to independently track and strike different targets, he said.

The military began the Bigung development project in 2010 when tensions on the Korean Peninsula escalated following the North's deadly shelling of Yeongpyeong Island and torpedo attack on the South's Cheonan corvette, which claimed the lives of 46 sailors on board.

LIG Nex1 has partnered with the Agency for Defense Development to develop and produce the guided missiles over the past three years. It has conducted 20 successful tests on the missiles in the past year, the ministry said.

18 nations participate in ASEAN Exercise 16-3
Read news from Defence Blog at Flipboard.com | Subscribe to the newsletter from Defence Blog





Areas of the world riddled with natural disasters and cursed by the secondary effects of mother nature’s wrath demand a responsive force that thinks, trains and plans ahead.

An exercise bringing together those very forces from 18 nations’ military and government organizations kicked off Sept. 5, 2016 at 14th Military Circle, Chonburi Province, Thailand. ASEAN Exercise 16-3 commenced with a fitting demonstration of an earthquake-induced collapsed building Search and Rescue operation.

Helicopters from Japan, Russia, Singapore and Thailand roared toward the airfield, dispatching fast-rope rescue teams and airlifting casualties. Meanwhile, teams on the ground moved casualties from the “hot zone,” a simulated collapsing building, to the “warm zone,” the immediate safety of an open field, and triaged according to casualty condition.

Teams from the Indian Army, Japan Ground Self-Defense Force and Royal Thai Army moved casualties secured on backboards swiftly to the pickup zone or field hospital. It was a grand display of pre-planned, coordinated and rehearsed disaster response, reinforcing the pay-off of the very familiarity and training this exercise will focus on.

“This exercise is intended to foster cooperation and to share experience, information and skills among military medics of the ASEAN member states and plus countries, while fostering capabilities of military units in the region through joint humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations,” said General Prawit Wongsuwon, Kingdom of Thailand Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, during the opening ceremony.

AEx 16-3 is an opportunity for different nations to apply and hone common standard operating procedures and diversify each other’s capabilities for the inevitable calamities of the volatile Indo-Asia-Pacific.

A U.S. contingent of approximately 25 personnel from U.S. Pacific Command; U.S. Army Pacific; U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific and Pacific Air Forces will work alongside the other nations in both the command post and field training exercises conducting medical planning, air medical evacuation, military medicine and chemical/ biological/ radiological/ nuclear defense.

Approximately 2,000 personnel are participating in the exercise from the 10 ASEAN member states Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam and “plus” countries Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.

“This is considered an important milestone of defense cooperation,” Wongsuwon lauded the ASEAN Defense Ministers Meeting Plus program, which, “which helps maintain peace, stability and security in the region.”

Humbling reminders of the significance of combined joint disaster response training come in the form of approximately 100 natural disasters on average each year in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. Sharing and honing real-world, on the ground, tactical and operational response capabilities facilitates effective, efficient response in a merciless environment.

New South Korean Destroyers to Have Ballistic Missile Defense Capability (excerpt)
(Source: USNI News; posted Sept 6, 2016)
By Sam LaGrone
A trio of planned South Korean guided missile destroyers will be built with the capability to intercept ballistic missile threats, USNI News has learned.

The addition of the capability will give the Republic of Korea (RoK) Navy a powerful organic BMD capability in addition to U.S. Army ground-based interceptors peppered throughout South Korea.

Under the plan, the three remaining ships in the Sejong the Great-class will be able to simultaneously intercept traditional air warfare threats while adding a ballistic missile defense capability through a series of hardware and software upgrades over the current class of ship, several sources confirmed to USNI News.

The destroyers will be fitted with the U.S. Navy’s Baseline 9 version of the Aegis Combat System that combines modern computing architecture to allow the ship’s AN/SPY-1D(v) radar to detect and track aircraft, cruise missiles and ballistic missiles at the same time.

The capability will likely be paired with Raytheon Standard Missile 3 BMD interceptors the ships can pair with the combat system to detect and destroy medium-range ballistic missile threats. Several Korean press outlets have reported the military is seeking to install SM-3s on the three new ships.

Officials with Aegis combat system developer Lockheed Martin told USNI News the new Korean ships would have an “integrated air and missile defense” (IAMD) capability installed aboard but would not elaborate on any other details of the combat system. (end of excerpt)
