Korean Warships in Ice Arrive to Russia

Posted on December 22, 2014 by tim


That’s not a photo from a movie shooting. That’s a Korean warship convoy that a few days ago arrived at Vladivostok. Looks like it’s pretty much freezing these days in that part of the Pacific as the ships were fully covered with ice! A few more photos are inside:

    It looks like the Korean navy guys are not used to that type of cold. Imagine if suddenly they went to war, they would have to spend the next 2 days de-icing their equipment before they could use it! Dont mess with Russia when it comes to the cold!!!

    I wonder how many tons of ice that amounts to. Might affect the ship’s stability in a rough sea.

    Maybe they need some heaters for the helm windows.

    I wondered if they were S. Koreans or Norks, then I noticed there were no oars, so I knew they were S Korean. Then I saw the ROK on the gangway. ;)

    Of what Korea this ship is? Southern or Northern?

    • Jacob says:

      Almost certainly a South Korean ship, as you can check by finding similarly looking ships on wikipedia link. The hulls look too modern to be classified as North Korean. North Korean ships will look like something that belonged in WWII battles.

    South-Korea, ROKS, Republic Of Korea Ship, which is a vessel of the Republic Of Korea Navy, South Korea.
