S. Korea to deploy advanced anti-sub missiles on destroyers

SEOUL, Aug. 13 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's defense ministry said Thursday that newly developed anti-submarine guided missiles will be deployed on destroyers by 2012 to beef up the country's naval defense.

South Korean destroyers will begin to carry about 60 to 70 long-range anti-submarine missiles, nicknamed "Red Shark," in three years, said the ministry after a meeting on mid-term arms procurement plans.
