North Korea on 'Aggressive Schedule' to Develop Ballistic Missile Submarine

US Japan conduct joint naval exercise amid North Korea tension

For weeks there has been speculation that the country was constructing a ballistic submarine and now satellite imagery taken of the Sinpo South Shipyard, located on North Korea's east coast, seem to confirm this, Newsweek reported. At the time, they had estimated that the latest submerged displacement was in excess of 2,000 tons with a beam measurement of 11 meters, according to the Diplomat.

"The presence of what appear to be sections of a submarine's pressure hull in the yards suggests construction of a new submarine, possibly the Sinpo-C ballistic missile submarine - the follow-on to the current Sinpo-class experimental ballistic missile submarine", 38 North said in a report on Thursday.

Images posted to the website indicate an active shipbuilding operation at the Sinpo South Shipyard, known for its production of large submarines for the North Korean navy. The researchers in 38 North spotted two large circular objects on the November 05 images, and they believe that these parts are submarine's pressure hull.

The report said that throughout this year, there had been continued movement of parts and components into and out of two parts yards adjacent to the construction halls in the centre of the shipyard.

Seoul's national intelligence service said Friday North Korea is facing challenges in developing the re-entry technology for its intercontinental ballistic missiles, JTBC reported. In the same secure boat, the basin was seen a new maintenance hall of the Sinpo Peninsula being constructed.

North Korea on 'Aggressive Schedule' to Develop Ballistic Missile Submarine

In addition, a 38 North analysis identified what appears to be a launch canister, indicating that the submarine the North Koreans are building is meant to carry SLBMs, or submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

The movement of testing platforms and construction at Sinpo suggests that planning on developing a reliable sea-based deterrent capability in the years ahead, but that goal may still be a long way off as the rogue regime has not yet tested an SLBM aboard an actual submarine, and the North's ballistic missile submarine lacks the capability to be an operational and survivable combat platform.

"We will handle North Korea".

At his second full Cabinet meeting, President Donald Trump told reporters that his administration was working on a plan to take care of North Korea's escalating missile program, although he chose to share no details of the supposed plan with the press.

However, a recent analysis by the Pentagon determined a ground invasion of North Korea would be the "only way" to fully disarm the country of its nuclear arsenal. It will be handled.
