High-end technology Warships
We have accumulated extensive know-how in building special types of ships for more than 30 years. By focusing on various facilities and manpower for their construction, we are leading the Korea's defense industry.
In particular, we independently designed, built and deployed the 4,000-ton helicopter destroyer as the flagship destroyer of the Korean Navy, for the first time in 1989. It has the self-defense capability of the stealth concept, a speed of 30 knots, and unmatched combat power to track and destroy aircraft, surface ships, submarines, as well as missiles. Next, we built three 5,000-ton destroyers capable of oceanic operations in 1999, and constructed a total of 35 surface ships, including one 10,000-ton-class destroyer.
In addition, We delivered two FFX-II frigates, which are the next-generation warships of the Korean Navy and built based on core of advanced technology, leading the replacement of outdated warships. Based on this technological expertise, we won the first order for a 2,300-ton warship from the Bangladesh Navy, and delivered a frigate to the Thai Navy, strengthening our reputation as an exporter of warships. In addition, we are building various types of warships ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 tons.
