Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, inspected KPA Unit 863 honored with the title of O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment.
He went round the room devoted to the education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the unit.
He said that the unit which was organized by the strategic plan and far-sighted wisdom of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il developed into matchless combat ranks under their wise leadership and care.
Recollecting with deep emotion the days when Kim Jong Il visited battalions under the unit, Kim Jong Un underscored the need for the unit to always remember the exploits the President and Kim Jong Il performed by leading the unit and achieve proud successes in rounding off the combat preparations and bolstering up the combat capability.
He heard a report on the combat duty to be performed by the unit and examined its operational plan.
Looking with keen attention at the documents on the operational plan of the unit, he clarified the issues arising in further completing the Juche-oriented naval tactics and skillfully applying them suited to the enemies’ changing scenarios for war of aggression, methods of combat actions and features of weaponry and indicated the tasks to be fulfilled to remarkably increase the naval attack operation capabilities of the fleets of the KPA in the East and West Seas and ways to do so.
Noting that this unit has an important role to play in performing the combat duty of the combined unit, he specified to which it should pay attention in making combat preparations and on what it should focus its efforts to create battle environment favorable for the operation of the unit.
The operational combat plans on the table for operational plans at the Supreme Command are to be carried out by the commanding officers in charge of the units, he said, adding that the commanding officers and staff officers of the unit should devote all their wisdom and enthusiasm to rounding off the combat preparations so that they may fight a battle at a lightning speed once a war breaks out right now.
He instructed the unit to conduct high-intensity combat drills under the simulated conditions of a real war and thus prepare all its service personnel as stalwart fighters capable of rendering various services and performing multi-functions and Mt. Paektu tiger-like soldiers.
Stressing the need for commanding officers to take the lead in raising a hot wind of drills, he said that an officer who is not a brave fighter cannot train his soldiers as good fighters and an officer from whom one cannot feel the smell of gunpowder cannot lead his unit in the charge under a hail of bullets and shells during a decisive battle.
He underscored the need for the commanding officers and men of the unit to build a-match-for-a-hundred combat capability with utmost effort, saving every second and minute from the firm stand that there can be no satisfaction in rounding off the combat preparations.
After learning in detail about the supply service at the unit, he indicated the tasks to be fulfilled by it to further improve the living of its service personnel in conformity with its specific conditions.
He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA.
