    Well, they have to.

    Even though their ships go out to sea for 'patrol' not even half armed...

    To crawl for money for second Dokdo class and make their name around Takeshima Island for a little TV footage during evening news? It's Korean thing.

    And you won't understand that. Ego way beyond capabilities.

    Doing trials and stuff like that.

    That forward superstructure looks as big as on Atago class or at least Burke class. On a 3k hull. Trying to sail it into Northern Atlantic or North Sea in the winter would bring a lot of 'fun' to everone aboard ;)

    Looks are deceving. it only looks that way because if its size in relation to the rest of the ship.

    ...and actually this vessel and its class has excleent sea keeping capabilities. They are very good design.

    The flat part of the bridge has three windows forward and three on each side.

    Look again at a Burke (or Atago or Kongo).

    They have 8-12 windows across the front.

    Anyhow, the SKOR Navy, like the JMSDF is very squared away and very good at what they do.

    ...and they have enough vessels to make a difference.

    12 DDGs
    13 FFGs
    16 SSKs

    Not as large as the JMSDF...but more combatants than either the UK or France.
