02.06.2016 - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

To counter North Korea's growing naval capabilities, South Korea is developing submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) for its latest and more capable attack submarines currently under construction, a high-ranking South Korean military official told Korea JoongAng Daily on 30 May.

"On the 3,000-tonne Jangbogo-III (also known as KSS-III) submarine, which is currently under production, we are installing a vertical launching pad," the official was quoted as saying on condition of anonymity, stressing that this indicates an SLBM "is already under development".

While the official failed to mention the name of the prototype, he pointed out that the SLBM is being developed under the aegis of the Agency of Defense Development and is expected to be completed by 2020.
