American warplanes joined the Vigilant Ace, the largest U.S.-Korean air force drills in the history of both states. Twelve F-22 fighters and multirole F-35A planes, both of which use stealth technology, landed in the South Korea for further participation in the exercise.
According to Reuters, the drills involve over 230 combat aircraft and some 12,000 servicemen from both countries.
The Vigilant Ace aims to improve the combat teamwork of the U.S. Air Forces under any weather conditions, night and day; the allies will work on certain scenarios, including surgical strikes on training targets, which are the simulated copies of North Korean nuclear and missile infrastructure.
The Vigilant Ace will be running until December 8.
