    This SSM Kh-35/SS-N-25 Switchblade would have been purchased in Russia or Vietnam or to another country and then copied.
    But is it also good as the original missile for ECM mainly ?

    Could also equip Myanmar FF F-11.

    Probably very easy to find and destroy
    Its probably based on 1980s tech from Russia

    Life is easy when everything can be simplified to something that someone can not understand.

    Although North Korean Subs are based on Tech Share form Russia I would wadger that this new North Korean SSK would have more in common with the Latest Iranian design then any Soviet SSK.
    the North Koreans have to develop there own unique classes and technologies as well as worked with other nations such as Iran to blend in new concepts and Ideas. I would not dismiss them as easy. a Good SSK Crew could be the bane of a SSN, Surface fleet or Sub hunter bird's life. To accomplish This they have the tech gifted them from the Russians in the Romeo class and the PRC, blended in there own ideas, they exported it to Iran Imported it back with Iranian developments and through Bargain, Theft and Bribery have worked to include concept and technologies form Europe the US, Russia, China, Japan and beyond.

    Th
    The most dangerous would be the mig 29 and mig 25 but then again north Korea probably doesn't have the jet fuel to provide adequate training and its probably very difficult to obtain spare parts because of sanctions and its relations with China are getting worse so they get almost no help
