    The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) of Korea announced on November 7 that it had entered into an agreement with Hyundai Heavy Industries for follow-on next generation landing ship (LST-II, third ship) at around KRW 150bn ($137m) on the previous day. 137 millions for one vessel

    The 4,500-ton landing ship project is to domestically construct a naval ship upgraded for high mobility and long distance transportation support.

    Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction has managed detailed design and construction of the guide ship after completing basic design in November 2010. The next generation guide ship is slated for delivery in November 2014 to Korea navy. The second landing ship is under construction at Hyundai for delivery in 2016.

    Hyundai was selected as the builder of the third ship after going through a competitive tender and qualification examinations among four shipyards in September.

    When the next generation landing ships are integrated into the force of navy in 2017, they are expected to contribute to military reinforcement by improving ability of landing operation and transportation.
