The Republic of Korea's first training ship, built with reduced radar visibility, was delivered to the navy. Delivered two years after its launch, the Hansando training vessel is 142 metres long and can reach more than 12,000 kilometres at a speed of 18 knots.
The ship has a capacity of 400 crew, which will be used to training Navy students, and has spacious conference rooms and separate practice rooms.
Hansando, where two navy helicopters can be deployed, could be deployed to carry out disaster relief operations as well as maritime security missions as needed, it added.
The training ship is expected to enter service in early 2021.
