He looked back with deep emotion upon the militant course of history of the unit associated with the great exploits of the Party in leading the army.
He earnestly said the unit should further strengthen the education through the exploits performed by the Party in leading the army, always set an example in its combat preparedness and hold the banner all the time in the van of strengthening the naval force.
Getting on Guardship No. 661 to be on sea guard duty, he acquainted himself in detail with its armament and preparations for action and highly praised it for maintaining its high mobility and powerful striking force to cope with any sudden situation and making full preparations for action all the time.
The launching drill was aimed at reconfirming the combatant function of the guardship and the characteristics of the missile weapon system and making the seamen adept in the movements for carrying out the mission of attack in an actual war situation. In the drill the target was promptly and correctly hit without any error and as a result, regular mobilized posture and offensive capacity of the guardship were perfectly estimated.
He emphasized that greater spurs will be put to modernizing the arms and equipment of the Navy including the building of a powerful vessel and the development of ship-based and subsurface weapon system, holding fast to the line on the development of the Naval Force presented at the Eighth Party Congress, so as to make a remarkable success in epochally increasing the modernity and combat ability of the Navy in a short period.
As I always emphasize, the outcome of a war is ascribed to the politico-ideological, spiritual and moral superiority of the service personnel. What is actually necessary in the battlefields is not the numerical and technical superiority of the arms and equipment, but the overwhelming ideological and spiritual might of the service personnel using them. A soldier with the indomitable spirit can defeat any enemy and never fail in any fight. It is important for the present generation to carry forward the unique tradition and spirit of our army without any deviation.
Only victory and glory will be in store for our Navy forever as the indomitable fighting spirit of the brave seamen of the Navy of the former generation including Heroes Kim Kun Ok and Chae Jong Bo, who registered the heroic spirit of dauntless man in the brilliant course of actions of our Navy, is encouraging the seamen of the new generation to victory and the great Juche idea is lighting the course of victory.
