The navy said its 1,200-ton submarine SSK Lee Eok Gi set sail from the country’s new Nava Port on Jeju Island today.

The 56metre-long and 5.5metre-wide sub is armed with Harpoon missiles, submarine mines and more than a dozen torpedoes.

It is capable of sailing back and forth between South Korea and Hawaii without fuel supply.

Cdr. Kang Byung-oh, the captain of the submarine, said: “[Submarines are] faster than ships and can carry out successive underwater operations for much longer.”

South Korea’s Nava Port can accommodate more than 20 warships and two 150,00ton cruise liners at the same time.

The navy also has nine other 1,800ton subs ready for launch, and plans to introduce 3,000ton subs in 2020.

In addition, South Korea hopes to introduce nuclear subs.

In a recent parliamentary session, South Korean Defence Minister Song Yong-moo said: “The time has come: we need nuclear submarines.”
