Mother Ships Present at Sinpo South Shipyard
Not directly related to the SLBM or ballistic missile submarine program, but indicative of the special role played by the Sinpo South Shipyard, is the presence of a mother ship in front of one of the smaller construction halls. Such vessels are used for covert infiltration operations against South Korea and Japan. A second mother ship is also present, in a floating dry-dock moored along a jetty 400 meters to the south.
