    Pyongyang, April 9 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, inspected the tank and armored car drivers training sub-unit of KPA Unit 604. He acquainted himself with the sub-unit's performance of duty. Then he mounted an observation platform to watch servicemen in training.
    They strikingly demonstrated that they have been fully prepared to successfully carry out any duty under any circumstances through their tireless actual maneuvers, bearing in mind his instruction that it is an important need of a modern warfare to increase the speed of the transport of a unit and its maneuverability.
    He was satisfied to learn that the sub-unit has built a training ground suited to the contents of training and its features and waged a dynamic drive to carry through the policy of training laid down by the WPK, thus training many skilled tank and armored car drivers.
    Going round military lecture rooms, he acquainted himself in detail with how trainees are educated.
    It is very good for the sub-unit to have built well lecture rooms to give all the trainees sufficient serviceable knowledge needed for actual battles and effectively operated them for education and training, he said, stressing the need to thoroughly establish Juche in military education in order to fully prepare the servicepersons to be a-match-for-a hundred stalwart combatants.
    He took deep care of the service and living of the soldiers, making the rounds of an education room, a mess hall, a kitchen, a wash-cum-bath house, a non-staple food store, a barn and other places of the sub-unit.
    He was pleased to learn that the sub-unit has provided its servicepersons with good living conditions by building sufficient entertainment and educational and supply facilities. He praised such revolutionary fighting traits and lifestyle of the servicepersons as managing their economic life tenaciously and methodically just as the anti-Japanese guerrillas managed their unit.
    He had a photo session with the servicepersons of the sub-unit. He was accompanied by KPA Generals Ri Myong Su, Hyon Chol Hae and Pak Jae Gyong, Ri Yong Chol and Ri Jae Il, first vice department directors of the C.C., WPK, and Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the same.
