Yonhap News Agency in South Korea reported a Seoul source warned Kim could be planning to equip the powerful weapons on all of his patrol vessels.
The military insider said: “North Korea has been seen replacing its aging weapon systems with the rotary gun system.
“If all the 380-something North Korean littoral combat boats are armed with the machine gun, this would pose an added threat to our Navy.”
Another military official said the North is trying to apply stealth technology to its combat boats in a move against their bitter rivals in the South.
The three-barrel, made by General Dynamics, boast “devastating firepower” according to the company’s website.
The company also describes the gun as “lightweight reliable and lethal”.
They describe it as an “ideal weapon system” for sea operations and recommend it for use on high speed patrol boats.
North Korea seems to be preparing for war, despite rumors their ever-beaming leader had died.
But Kim is not helping himself as he gorges on expensive cheese and wine as his weight balloons, even spending £2 million on a gym to beat the bulge.
Kim seems hopeful Donald Trump will become his opposite number in the US to improve relations, but the loudmouthed White House wannabe has pledged to tackle the boy-faced bad guy.
