Battle at  Yeonpyeong by Kooskia Battle at  Yeonpyeong by Kooskia
(c) Kooskia

This another of the (few) mecha/naval arts i've tried to do ^^
This one has too a little of "political" theme being a rapresentation of the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong , one of the different naval clashes of the two Koreas in recent years (that it was 29 June 2002).
For the first time a ship of the Korean People's Navy managed to hit and sunk a South Korean vessel, and the loss (patrol boat n357) was admitted by the enemy.

There are few details about the class of North korean ships, and after a bit of research i've found that they were Soviet SO-1 class, with weapons modified. The frontal gun of 85mm (in the picture it has the turret turned to the enemy) was the one that claimed the mortal hit on the SK patrol.

It's also interesting how ships of Kprean People Navy has lots of coloured badges on guns and weaponery and other little decorative signs in different points of the hull (and red/white panels with political writes).

PLEASE, IF YOU FAVE IT, COMMENT IT ; )
