November 10, 2020 (Google Translation) – On the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Bong-dong, General Choreographer, who was the protagonist of the victory, is resurrected as the next 3,000-ton submarine. The Ministry of Defense, together with the Navy, held a ceremony for the second medium-sized submarine, the “Choreography Ship” (KSS-Class, 3,000 tons) on the afternoon of November 10 at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Okpo Shipyard.
The choreography is a submarine designed and built independently in Korea by the second dive of the Zhang Bogo-class, which was completed in September 2018. The choreography was contracted in 2012, and after the 2016 ceremony and the groundbreaking ceremony in 2018, the choreography was established.
The ceremony was conducted in light of the corona 19 situation, which greatly reduced the size of the attendance, and was attended by Defense Minister Seo Wook, Vice-President of the Navy Chief of Staff, Choi Ho-cheon, head of the Future Electric Power Project division of the Defense Ministry, and Lee Sung-geun, CEO of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Maritime Affairs.
The descendants of the choreographer also attended, adding the meaning of the ceremony. On behalf of Mrs. Optometrist, the granddaughter of General Choreographer, her son, Kang Yong-gu, attended. “When my grandfather was a child, he secretly told me that his grandfather, the choreographer, was an independent fighter, and he was always proud of his grandfather, even though it was a difficult family situation,” she said.
Defense Minister Seo Wook, who presided over the ceremony, said at the ceremony, “In the near future, our Navy will be reborn as an advanced ocean navy with a Korean-style next-generation destroyer, a 4,000-ton submarine, along with its core power, light aircraft,” and said, “We are confident that the choreography delivered today will contribute to peace and stability on the Korean peninsula, as well as contribute to world peace, and give a proud Name of The Republic of Korea.”
Following the opening ceremony and the national ceremony, the ceremony proceeded in the following business and reporting, the proclamation of The Ministry of Naval Staff General Hammyung, The Memorial to Daewoo Shipbuilding & Maritime Ceo Lee Sung-geun, the Merit prize and the ceremony of the origin of the ceremony of the ministry of defense, the ceremony of the ceremony of the ceremony of the ceremony of the ceremony of the ceremony of the ceremony, and in accordance with naval customs, Mrs. Son So-jin, wife of Defense Minister Seo Wook, cut the head of the trap.
The Navy named the next two submarines as choreographed in accordance with the tradition of using people who contributed to the independence movement or contributed to the development of the country after the liberation.
As a native of the Korean Imperial Guard, General Choreographer committed himself to the independence movement in protest against the dissolution of Japanese troops, and in 1918, as commander of the National People’s Congress, he carried out domestic entry operations with more than 400 soldiers. In 1920, he joined the Battle of Bong-dong and The Battle of Cheongsan-ri, where he was named as the third commander of the Battle of Qingsari, but was arrested in 1924 after being shot by Japanese police. In 1980, the Government of the Republic of Korea signed the Order of Independence of the Founding Order.
The choreography is 3,000 tons long, 83.3 meters long and 9.6 meters wide, with a maximum underwater speed of 20 kts (37 km/h) or more, and a ship equivalent to the dosan an changho with a capacity of 50. The choreography was about twice as large as the Zhangbogo-class submarine, and the underwater submarine period increased. In addition, the choreography was equipped with a number of domestic development equipment, including combat stations and systems, which are the core equipment that serves as the brains of submarines through the cooperation of the Minguan Army from the initial design stage, and improved the overall localization ratio.
Song Wang-kun, head of the System Development Team at the Defense Business Agency, said, “The choreography that inherited the will of the generals, who fought the War of Independence in the spirit of mortality, will play a key role in national security, effectively responding to all-round security threats with a restrained strategic weapons system.”
The choreography will be delivered to the Navy in 2022 after a period of acquisition evaluation, and will be deployed in practice after a power-up process. End//
