Busan Naval Base (also known as Jakjeon Naval Base) is a Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) base in Yongho-dong, Nam-Gu, Busan, South Korea.

HistoryEdit

The base became operational in 2007 when the ROKN relocated there from Jinhae Naval Base. Among the reasons for the relocation were speed restrictions around Jinhae which slowed access to and from the base.[1]

The base can accommodate up to 30 vessels of all sizes, including the largest ROKN ships and US Nimitz-class aircraft carriers.[2]
