Two North Korean Submarines "Disappeared"
zerohedge ^

Posted on 04/03/2013 9:10:10 PM PDT by traumer

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?

I assure you that we have satellites following these little boats. We can also probably hear their conversations onbaord.

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.

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.

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.

These Yono Class midget submarines have a range of about 50 nautical miles submerged and about 550 nautical miles on the surface.

The larger Sang-O-II submarines have a submerged range of 1,500 nautical miles or more if the Norks have increased their range with some later modifications.

“Lost contact” may mean “we sunk them”.

Can’t imagine such a small sub built for North Korea would have technology to evade sonar.

I like your theory. “Gee, we don’t know what happened to those subs of yours... there were there just a minute ago, then we went for a cup of tea, and they were gone!”

I heard that, due to strong currents and muddy waters, it is not easy to track these small submarines with sonar as long as they stay in the area, not far from shore. I hope some further measures have been in place since the sinking of Cheonan.

They can stay submerged for a lot longer than 3-4 days, they just don’t ever come up.

I heard strong currents make loud noises if you hear from the sonar. No saying that NK subs are not noisy, but they seem to claim that currents make louder noise. Since I am not an expert, I invite any expert at FR on the matter to enlighten us.

Surfaced? A little over 7 days. Submerged? About 10. Both at max speed. But I doubt they carry enough fuel to make it 2000 miles.

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.

Can someone decode this statement?
