Korean turtle ship decimates Japanese navy (fun fact--not news)

Post  pinhedz on Sat Jun 30, 2012 5:24 am

What was the first ironclad war ship? It was not the work of Europeans or Americans. It was a Korean ship that they called the "turtle ship."



This is the US version:

Turtle ships (the korean ones) decimated the Japanese navy during Toyotomi Hideyoshi's failed attempt to conquer Korea from 1592 to 1598.

I was given a model of the turtle ship by the North Korean gub'mint as a token of appreciation--I'm told this is a great honor.
They made sure the value of the gift was low enough so that I would not have to report it as a bribe. Laughing

And let me just add that--from this day forth--anyone who Googles on the search term "turtle ship" will pay a visit to ATU. cheers

People interested in Admiral Yi Sun-sin are all invited.

Admiral Yi Sun-sin is a historical fgure who’s had a major impact on Koreans. Not only because Admiral Yi never lost a battle during the Imjin War, but also because of his fearless sense of loyalty, compassion and modest character.
