Korean “nuclear mines,” the United States headache
According to “Korea Times” recently reported that South Korean sources said the media introduction North Korea is developing some new water weapons, including nuclear mines has entered the final stage, will be successfully developed in 2012.
Although the Western media generally agreed that North Korea may already have the bomb, but North Korea has not yet been addressed is how to become an effective nuclear warheads, which use short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles project, in order to achieve the enemy target for strategic strike.
But North Korea also has self-knowledge, although it does not have a valid strategic nuclear missile, but Pyongyang is more convenient while developing nuclear weapons, in order to better implement the “self defense” and combat the threat from the United States.

small weapons against large aircraft carrier
“Korea Times” quoted a North Korean Ping Road cadres, saying North Korea arms industry from a research institute under the Ministry in March 2009 began the development of nuclear mines and nuclear torpedoes. If successfully developed, these weapons can not only attack military bases in Korea and Japan, but also to deal with the U.S. aircraft carrier, to prevent the U.S. military in the Korean Peninsula, “when something happens,” the military intervention.
report also quoted a North Korean munitions factory cadres as saying that although the manufacture of nuclear torpedoes also need to break through some technical difficulties, but there is not much for making nuclear mines the technical requirements, if necessary, you can now create.
nuclear mines with little to deter the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier displacement of 10 tons, is indeed a new way of thinking.
traditional deterrence mine is small, so little strategic nuclear deterrent mine is purely strategic defensive weapons, so the political risk is much smaller than the nuclear bombs and the like. So North Korea may consider using the waters in the vicinity of the submarine to covertly laid large yield nuclear mines, nuclear mines line spacing to the effective radius of total destruction and slightly overlapping, try to use the low detection rate of material to make nuclear mines, and laid in the hydrological harsh conditions, the complex land-sea, coupled with advanced hydrophone set off on their own to identify the target, but also long-distance remote control detonated, sink to the bottom in shallow areas and moderate laid buried deep in places sink to the bottom together with the rocket go up, the whole minefield scope to be able to prevent U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups of armed intervention.
North Korea’s conventional submarines can be quiet and stand in the water, engaged the U.S. aircraft carrier battle group. Thus, nuclear mines, anti-aircraft attacks, though not the means, but it is real means of deterrence.
cost inefficient with large
mine is very dangerous. Since 1950, the U.S. Navy fleet at sea mines on the number of injuries caused by other threats is the way of three. Mines are inexpensive and very easy to produce or buy from the international arms market. In the vast ocean, hard to find these mines. Even if found to the mines, they also need to remove time-consuming.
from the principle that the nuclear mines, nuclear munitions are equipped with mines, enemy ships for damage or impede their actions. 1 ~ 20,000 tons of nuclear explosive mine explosion can yield 700 to 1400 meters of the ship was moderate injury.
nuclear mines, including two – bomb blast bombs and induced radioactivity. Play is a kind of shock wave effect as the main factors undermining the special properties of anti-hydrogen, and its destructive effects and conventional weapons destruction similar to the ground or close to the solid ground nuclear explosions to destroy the enemy’s military targets, and produce more radioactive fallout less, more suitable for use on the battlefield.
induced radioactivity is the use of bomb explosion released some of the added radionuclide neutron irradiation, induced a large number of longer half-life of radioactive isotopes, thus increasing the radioactive contamination of nuclear weapons, the enemy ship for damage ship or impede their actions.
nuclear torpedoes are equipped with nuclear munitions torpedo, carried by the submarine, used to attack large surface ships, fleet, merchant marine and ports, bases, large-scale coastal engineering goals. To counter U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups, the former Soviet Union had nuclear torpedoes under too much work on. 1951-1952, the Soviet Union 11 design bureau developed two types of nuclear torpedoes, the 533 mm of Т-5-type and 1550 mm Т-15-type nuclear torpedoes. If the 533 mm torpedo is a submarine standard weapons, then more than 1.5 meters in diameter monster equipped with torpedo tubes for the largest Soviet submarine is very difficult.
Cuban missile crisis of the U.S. Suhai on confrontation, the Soviet submarines were once found in the United States, experts on the Soviet Union was prepared to use nuclear submarine torpedo attack had had differences. Soviet experts told the media that “China’s first and only one can reach the U.S. coast of the torpedo is a ‘monster T-15′, length 25 meters, more than 1.5 meters in diameter, can carry nuclear warheads, according to the design, it can reach the United States any city along the Gulf, such as New York, detonated after the tsunami, the city flooded. “
