    @amoy,

    A hypothetical question...

    In case of a war between 2 Koreas, who has a better chance of winning ? SK or NK? and Why ?Provided following conditions are true !

    1. Zero Chinese Support to NK and Zero US/Jap Support to SK
    2. No Nukes whatsoever

    Undoubtedly SK will beat NK hands down based on the conditions.

    Without military hardwares fm either China or Russia, NK is still using outdated Mig-25 or Mig-21

    and NK has been under embargo for decades

    Can u imagine Pyongyang is still operating such an old-fashioned subway built by Chinese and Russians in 1960's-70's?

    Don't you think, NKs will have a better edge over SKs when it comes to land forces since they have a very large army ?

    > That NK Subway looks neater and sweeter than our domestic stuff......

    > That not NK tank, it is the Koksan Artillery gun with 67km range, this is compelling reason to develop our own artillery. (If NK can do it, when they dont have engineers or know english, why cant we indians, the morally superior race of man, with contributions like zero and yoga?)

    Below link seems to agree with u regarding QUANTITY of land forces

    North Korea vs South Korea military comparison | 2eyeswatching

    Seoul is deadly close to the DMZ /border, densely populated with 21% of SK GDP

    NK will lose, but not before seoul become a fire hell. NK has what 25,000 artillery aim at seoul, + hundreds MRIV. NK just too close to SK, for SK to fully take advantage of their air/sea power.
