Science & Tech
Aircraft carriers are not only impressive ships, but they're rather useful as they move fighter jets, helicopters, equipment, and people across the seas.
Now, South Korea has announced that it is joining the military ranks of nations that own aircraft carriers. It will be building its very first aircraft carrier, an LPX-II-class ship that will transport F-35B Joint Strike Fighters, as per USNI news.
It isn't the biggest aircraft carrier out there by any means, but it's a strong addition to the country's navy.
The LPX-II aircraft carrier will not be an amphibious ship as was previously believed, rather, it will be a dedicated light aircraft carrier, reports USNI.
The blueprint of South Korea's upcoming aircraft carrier was shared on Monday.
