Korea’s nuclear facilities during a U.S.-led multi-service combat operations exercise scheduled for next month in Alaska.
The South Korean Air Force said it will dispatch eight F-15K fighter jets and two C130H transport planes along with 147 personnel including pilots for Red Flag-Alaska which takes place from Oct. 3 to 21 at Eielson Air Force Base.
From the U.S. Air Force, 50 fighter jets including F-16s and F-15Cs will participate in the drill.
A military source said on condition of anonymity that the allies’ air forces will train their combat pilots to annihilate the enemy under various scenarios such as air-to-air and air-to-surface combat.
Seoul’s F-15Ks are set to carry out the live fire exercise with their laser-guided “bunker-buster” bombs that can penetrate command centers located deep underground.
