Korean War Models
At the outbreak of war, the North Korean Army was equipped with 150 Soviet-made tanks, about 40 YAK fighters ("YAK": A.S. Yakovlev Design Bureau JSC is a Russian aircraft designer and manufacturer), 70 attack bombers, 60 YAK trainers and 10 reconnaissance planes.
These aircraft were assigned to the invasion while 114 more airplanes were
serving in North Korea. They had a modest navy of several small warships, and
used them to launch attacks on the South Korean Navy. North Korea's most serious
weakness was its lack of a reliable logistics system for moving
supplies south as the army advanced, but the South Korean forces were
weak and ill-equipped compared to the North Koreans. Thousands of
Korean civilians running south were forced to hand-carry supplies, many
of whom later died in North Korean air attacks.
The US armed and trained 150,000 soldiers for the South Korean Army. The South Korean military had only 40 tanks, 14 attack
planes, and few anti-tank weapons.
