Website says satellite images show biggest warships built by NKorea in 25 years

A North Korea-watching website says recent overhead images show two new North Korean frigates, the largest surface combat ships the nation's navy has constructed in a quarter-century.
The vessels can be seen in commercial satellite images from December and January. One is berthed at a shipyard in the west coast port of Nampo , the other at a shipyard at the northeastern port of Nanjin (NAH-jin).
It's unclear whether the frigates are yet ready for service.
The website notes that North Korea has constructed the vessels despite economic sanctions and reported industrial stagnation.
