    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.

    Couldn't find a thread on N. Korea's military so will post here.

    N. Korea's new main battle tank, "Pokpungho" or Storm Tiger!!








    “Storm Tiger” was believed to have been developed in the 1990s based on the former Soviet Union's T-72 tanks, and underwent performance trials in 2002....
    The tank is believed to be equipped with either a 125mm or 115mm main gun, similar to that of the T-90 main battle tank of the Russian Army, according to the ministry officials.

    Many analysists and ROK government believe the newest MBT of North Korea is derived from T-62, not T-72.

    Pokpoongho just seems to be the most recently produced Cheonmaho tanks.

    Anyway, with all due respect to the Dear Leader's most supreme technological abilities and designing excellence, Pokpoongho hardly looks as beautiful as our most numerous tank.



    Btw we have been applying new EOTS upgrades to K1 tanks for sometime now (the K1 tank shown up there has the old EOTS). Old one's on top for comparison, new ones are below. I don't know yet if the newer K1A1s are being similarly upgraded to a higher version.





    Going back to Pokpoongho, the Korean military speculates that it might equip ATGMs. I want to know if individual K1 have prepared effective enough survival measures against them. Right now the only soft-kill system aboard the K1 series that I know of are K415 smoke grenades that block both IR and electro-optical targeting.





    Take a look here from 2:50 onward. Do you think these chaff/flares are real or just pyrotechnics?

    Those smoke grenades in 2:50 seem to be pretty normal, but take a look explosions in 1:29. They have used gasoline in those explosion, because artillery shell explosions don't look like that. Unless those explosions simulate napalm bomb explosions.

    They simulate exploding NK tanks, though I don't know if diesel fuel explodes like that...

    This K2 has got a proper identification tag. Is it a 'real' one?

    KF-16... somewhere down along the road, maybe we could produce a block 60 version this time? The KF-16 series had such a stable production line but it was dismantled so quickly.
    From down bellow these KF15 strangely look more like Mig29 (somehow). Am I the only one or what?

    From behind (second caption) they really do look like F15, can't say the contrary.

    The plane looks too big to be a Mig-29. Korea doesn't have it anyway.

    Korean F-15s don't have the 'K' designation before F- unlike the KF-16. Korea's manufacturing share of the F-15K was only 40%, still mostly American production (55%+, the rest belonging to subcontractors like the multinational BAE).

    Isn't F-15K has some evil juice part as well?
