The state-of-the-art destroyer Choi Young has been stationed along the Northern Limit Line, the maritime border between the two Koreas off the west coast, a military spokesman said Thursday.
The move comes after Tuesday's naval skirmish, when the two sides exchanged fire for about two minutes.
The destroyer, which went into service in September last year, is 150 m long and has the capacity to accommodate up to 300 people.
The Choi Young is armed with guided missiles and torpedoes and equipped with an anti-radar detection stealth function.
