S. Korean Aegis destroyer to check its combat capabilities in June
SEOUL, March 1 (Yonhap) — South Korea’s first Aegis destroyer will undergo a comprehensive evaluation of its fighting capabilities near Hawaii in June, a Navy source said Monday.
The source said Sejong the Great will conduct tests while taking part in the multinational Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) naval exercise. Lockheed Martin — the developer of the Aegis system — and U.S. Navy experts will act as observers and evaluate the weapons systems during the trial.
