    South Korean long-range unmanned aerial vehicle

    The South Korean spotter, under the name Fangnook, distributed the photographs of the first prototype of the South Korean reconnaissance-strike unmanned aerial vehicle of the long range, known under the designation KUS-FS (Korean Unmanned System), which he had made on March 16, 2018. These are the first known images of the flying prototype of this UAV in open sources.

    South Korea officialy launched its first domisticaly made AIP submarine named Dosan Ahn Chang-ho. It is equiped with the K-VLS (korean vertical launch system) equiped with 10 Hyunmoo-3 missiles. It carries torpedos and Hongsangeo anti ship mossile that can be launched through torpedo tubes.



    So the german ToT proved to be very good for korea and very bad for germany as they just lost a client which will probably sell its own sub to potential customers.

    Center for combat training of the South Korean army KSTS

    An interesting video (in Korean) of two-way combat training at the Korea Combat Training Center (KCTC) South Korean Army Training Center located in Inje, Gangwon-do Province. The KSTS center was established in 2002 and since 2005 has been providing combat training using laser shooting simulators and displaying the position of each soldier at the terminals of intermediaries. As the enemy's designation forces, a special part of the “Reds” is used, equipped with T-80U and BMP-3 tanks received from Russia (previously it was a battalion of the so-called “11th Rifle Division”, deployed in 2015 to the OPFOR combat group).

    Since 2005, the KSTS center provided rotational training for units of the battalion level of the South Korean army (up to 27 infantry and motorized infantry battalions per year), but recently the center has been significantly expanded and modernized and from 2018 it provides combat training for the South Korean complete army brigade (regiment) . The video captured training in the center of the 37th infantry regiment of the 12th infantry division "Eulji" - this is the second infantry regimental (brigade) group of the South Korean army, trained in the center after its expansion.

    Hahahhahahahaha... Pompeo panics that South Korea might make peace with North Korea and realise they don't actually need the US at all... but then they never did of course... the US isn't there because of North Korea... they are there because of China...

    But obviously they want to keep selling military equipment to SK too...

    Presentation of the new South Korean military helicopter LAH

    On December 18, 2018, a roll-out and official presentation of the first LAH (Light Armed Helicopter) promising South Korean military helicopter was launched at the enterprise of the South Korean Aircraft Building Corporation Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) in Sachhon. The start of ground tests of the first prototype is scheduled for January 2019, and the first flight - at the beginning of May 2019.


    The first prototype of the South Korean promising military helicopter KAI LAH (Light Armed Helicopter) during a presentation at the enterprise of the South Korean aircraft manufacturing corporation Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) in Sachkhon, 12/18/2018 (c) KAI


    Recall that on June 25, 2015, KAI Corporation received contracts from the South Korean Government Defense Procurement Programs (Defense Acquisition Program Administration - DAPA) and the Korea Industrial Technology Development Institute (KEIT) to create a medium (“light”) helicopter 5 ton weight class in two versions - respectively, the military Light Armed Helicopter (LAH) and the commercial Light Civil Helicopter (LCH). The contract with DAPA provided for the financing from her side of the development of the LAH helicopter in the amount of 650 billion South Korean won (about $ 587 million), and the contract with KEIT - financing the development of LCH in the amount of 350 billion won (about $ 316 million).

    The helicopter is created by KAI in partnership with the European association Airbus Helicopters based on the well-known mid-size Airbus Helicopters H155 helicopter (formerly the EU155, the development of the Aerospatiale AS 365 Dauphin II helicopter). The agreement on the joint development of the helicopter was signed by KAI and Airbus Helicopters on March 16, 2015. The total cost of the LCH / LAH R & D program is estimated at 1.6 trillion won (1.444 billion dollars), of which, in addition to the above funding, 1 trillion won by South Korean government agencies, another 400 billion won should be invested by Airbus Helicopters, and 200 billion won - KAI itself.

    According to current plans, the civilian LCH helicopter should be certified and launched in 2021, and the military LAH in 2023, although it is unclear whether these deadlines will be met.

    The LAH helicopter is being created in accordance with the requirements of the South Korean Army Aviation, formulated back in 2010, involving the purchase of 200 medium-sized helicopters armed with an ATGM to replace the existing Hughes MD 500MD Defender and Bell AH-1S Cobra helicopter fleet. On the whole, KAI is very optimistic about the prospect of selling up to 600 LCH helicopters and up to 400 LAH helicopters on the Korean and global markets, especially since Airbus Helicopters intends to stop producing the original H155 after 2020.

    The LCH helicopter must be equipped with two Safran (Turbomeca) Ariel 2C2 turboshaft engines, and a military LAH with Ariel 2L2 engines. The development of these engine modifications is carried out with the participation of the South Korean group Hanwha, which should localize their production.

    The first prototype of a commercial LCH helicopter was built entirely at the Airbus Helicopters facility in Marignane (France), apparently representing an H155 modification, and began flight tests there on July 24, 2018 (has French F-WWOH registration).

    KAI has already had successful experience of cooperation with Airbus Helicopters (formerly Eurocopter) since 2005 in the creation of the South Korean multi-purpose helicopter KUH-1 Surion of 8-ton class, which has been in mass production since 2013.
