Frigate Support to the Navy November 12, 2019

The Republic of Korea launched a new, guided-missile frigate equipped with advanced sonar and propulsion systems. The platform, called Seoul, is 122 meters long. The 122-meter-long ship is equipped with guided missiles and guns and can carry a helicopter for marine operations. The warship boasts of advanced anti-submarine patrol and combat capabilities, as it employs an advanced sonar system as well as a hybrid propulsion system that reduces the level of noise the vessel makes underwater. According to the Korean Navy, the frigate will be delivered to the military in early 2021 after additional preparations are completed, and several more vessels of this class will be built by the early 2020s.
