Supresonic Bomber: North Korea has conducted several missile tests this week, which has increased tension in the maritime region. On Saturday, North Korea fired four short-range ballistic missiles into the sea. In response, America has sent two supersonic bomber aircraft to South Korea, showing its military power.
South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missiles covered a distance of about 130 kilometers towards the North-West Sea. North Korea has fired more than 30 missiles into the sea this week. These include an intercontinental ballistic missile. After this, people in northern Japan were asked to move to safer places and it had flown war planes in its area.
US South Korea joint exercise
Pyongyang has justified its military action and said it was in response to joint US-South Korea air exercises. The US on Saturday flew two B-1B supersonic bombers in the skies of South Korea on the last day of joint exercises. It is believed that this was done to intimidate North Korea due to its increasing missile tests.
Four American F-16 fighter jets and four South Korean F-35 fighter jets joined two B-1B bombers along with two B-1B bombers, the South Korean military said on the final day of a “Vigilant Storm” joint air force exercise. The joint exercise ended on Saturday. The bombers were deployed to the Korean peninsula for the first time since December 2017.
America deployed 4 bombers
Tension continues to rise in the Korean peninsula. The B-1B flyover is a familiar display of a force during tensions with North Korea. According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, the US has placed four bombers in Guam since late October. South Korea has asked the United States to intensify its deployment of strategically important weapons, including aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines and long-range bombers such as the B-1B.
