What a dive! Kim Jong Un tours rust-bucket sub

Undated photos have emerged of Kim Jong Un's inspection of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Naval Unit 167. He got to ride in a sub, point at stuff and give advice. Lots of advice. He also worked up  a sweat while looking at things through the periscope.

Anyone would look disappointed if they had to stare at that paint job. And the man with the radio is looking too confused for his own good.

In spite of all that rust one can only assume they made sure the sub was seaworthy. But surely a lick of paint wouldn't have hurt?

It's a tight fit down there.

All aboard.

The Pyongyang media outlet KCNA says this photo shows Kim giving field guidance during his inspection of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Naval Unit 167.

Maybe here he's giving nutritional guidance.

"Dear Leader" provides what must be nothing short of sterling advice from all those years of military service that he doesn't have. And is that computer running Microsoft Windows? Bill Gates and his software must be on the "do-not-blow-up" list for when North Korea <a href="http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/asia/8272858/North-Korea-destroys-New-York-in-its-dream"> sends another rocket to the US</a>.

There's nothing like a power walk before your trip in a rusty submarine.

Few details were offered with these photos by the North Korea's Korean Central News Agency, but going by Kim's gesture we can only assume he's talking about the size of a fish, or telling one of the troops to "bring it in" for a hug.

It's hard to tell if North Korea's supreme leader is looking at a map or a giant table cloth, but he seems comfortable surrounded by photos of himself. Co-incidentally, that hovercraft wallpaper <a href="/world/americas/8483497/North-Koreas-photo-flaws-laid-bare-again">looks suspiciously familiar</a>.

Kim is so busy giving advice he's forgotten to ash his cigarette.

North Korea's Supreme Leader refuses to let his country's prize submarine being declared obsolete dampen his enthusiasm for it.

Kim Jong Un reportedly offered navigation tips and issued stern battle orders during a recent tour of a Romeo class submarine of the People's Navy.

North Korea's official news agency reported that the multi-talented leader "taught" the submarine's captain a "good method of navigation".

The vessels were produced for the Soviet Union for only four years before being succeeded by nuclear-powered submarines 53 years ago.

Every other navy in the world ditched the Romeo and its noisy and easily detectable diesel engine - except, of course, North Korea.

The country still boasts 20 Romeo class boats, comprising almost a third of its submarine fleet.
