    ROK government considers preparing about $2 trillion for reunification cost by increasing tax. This is little less than 1.5 years of Korea's GDP.

    That's President 2MB's idea. I don't think his new taxation plan is mutually attainable with his 7-4-7 plans; 7% annual GDP growth, $40,000 GDP per capita, and world's 7th largest exporter by the time he leaves his office. We are still running at 5.8~6% GDP growth, $29,500 USD, and world's 8th largest exporter. Higher savings rate/less disposable income = less consumer spendings = drop in economic production. He has 4 years to keep the promise he made during his candidacy. Well even if he does pull through with all his ideas, I think the next President will likely ruin it again.

    They are Honest John, more of a rocket similar to FROG than Scud, although some of my source say RoK may have fitted them with guidance system.
    Those rocket were originally designed to be fitted with tactical nuclear warhead.

    The front guns look like M-110, 203mm, but the back ones look like M-107, 175mm

    Yeah, that fund is going to be siphoned off if it ever really becomes available. I see the validity of having such reserves, but I don't see lot of people trusting the government with that kind of monetary reserves. Most people I've seen just laughed.

    Well, that's nothing compared to what's been going on with Wall Street. Now THAT is something to laugh about, AND cry.

    Does South Kore Have an airborne/paratroopers force other than their special forces?

    ROK doesn't have big airborne/para unit other than airborne (special force) brigades, but some troops in ROKMC do get airborne training (probably the only regular warfare airborne unit).

    We'll have barely 36 transports after we get the four Super Hercules. We have no meaningful means to support division-level paradrop operations even if we had a full-fledged airborne force.

    We might want to milk the CN-235 with Indonesia. We already have the joint KFX program, so what prevents us from building the CN-235 too together? The aircraft is half-Indonesian and its designs easily accessible.
