Chosun TV is reporting that South Korean military have lost contact with two North Korean submarines that left their naval base in Hwanghae Province a few days ago.
There has obviously been a lot of changes between last week and now and South Korean military officials suggested that while maneuvers in February were nothing meaningful, now it is provocation.
The two 'torpedo' subs are small 130-ton, 30-meter, 10-man machines that can stay submerged for three-to-four days.

South Korean ships had better be careful.

Can they make it to the Aleutian Islands in 4 days?
how long to sail to Guam?
Hopefully keeping Davy Jones company.
I assure you that we have satellites following these little boats. We can also probably hear their conversations onbaord.
Found it ...
Hwanghae Province naval base where NLL, NLL facing near Yeonpyeong. Disappeared submersible class, such as three years ago, when the Cheonan destruction of salmon has been known.
30m small, 130-ton torpedo can carry a two-foot Chinese crew of 10 people, and at depths of less than 100m mission for more than three or four days longer available.
"Still can't Believe Romo will be making 18 mil a year!"
And here the title drove me to think there were two on the bottom.
One of our submarines is missing....
They would be lucky to make it to Japan, Hwanghae is on the west coast, north of Incheon.
NK is cruising for a bruising
I hop that SK doesn’t limit itself to a symbolic response like when its cruiser was sank or ‘proportinal’ response like when the island was shelled.
Romo is not worth that much
A three hour tour...
Deaf flum berow!!
How many torpedoes do these boats carry? they need not go far to cause a great deal of problems for a trading nation like South Korea. If they can launch even primitive rockets they could menace a wide range of targets—what about our base in Okinawa? Pusan Harbor? Just going missing is a threat. What ever they do—it will happen in the next 48 hours.
