Navy Facilities

There is one large naval base at Jinhae [Chinhae], and seven small naval stations located at Jeju [Cheju], Inch'on, Mokp'o, Mukho, Pukp'yong-ni, P'ohang, and Busan [Pusan]. In November 2007, Third Fleet Command was redeployed from Busan to Mokpo, and in the following month the Navy Operations Command was transferred from Jinhae to Busan. In addition to those moves, plans call for a large-scale base to be constructed on Jeju Island, which was to become the home port of the Aegis destroyers.
