US, South Korea launch large-scale air drills amid spiraling nuclear tension

US, South Korea launch large-scale air drills amid spiraling nuclear tension | 04 Dec 2017 | Unprecedented joint air force drills between the US and South Korea, featuring hundreds of warplanes, have kicked off despite dire warnings from Pyongyang and Moscow's calls to avoid new provocations after the recent launch of North Korea's new ICBM. The Vigilant Ace 18 drills, which Seoul claims are of a purely "defensive nature," will see hundreds of US and South Korea's aircraft honing their skills by attacking mock North Korean nuclear and missile objects in different war time scenarios, Yonhap reported, citing South Korea's defense ministry. They will for the first time feature six F-22 Raptor stealth jets, that arrived to South Korea specifically for the war games along with six F-35As stealth jets.
