MND plans to acquire 12 retired S-3B Vikings

MND has announced that the acquisition of 12 S-3B Vikings from the US has been approved at the MND Force Requirement Verification Committee last month. To supplement the current 16 ASuW patrol aircraft P-3C and P-3CK, MND has pursued the acquisition of ASuW aircraft since 2013. However, the current plan raises questions on whether introducing Vikings, retired in 2009, meets the purpose of strengthening long-term anti-submarine capabilities. In addition, the price of the Viking has increased from KRW 20 billion to KRW 60 billion and additional funds will be required for anti-submarine equipment removed at retirement.
