Joining the drill from the USA military would be USS Ronald Reagan nuclear-powered aircraft carrier under the US 7th Fleet. The U.S. Navy says in a release it's part of a "routine visit during a regularly scheduled deployment to the Western Pacific".

Anti-aircraft and anti-ship guns will be fired during the exercise, the navy added.

Cmdr. Chad Hardt, commanding officer of the Tucson, said the deployment gives the Navy an "opportunity to strengthen the outstanding relationship that exists between the US and the Republic of Korea". In April, South Korean media reported that Navy SEALs aboard the MI had trained with a local force to decapitate North Korea's Kim Jong Un regime.

Kwon joined the company in 1985 as a researcher of the company's Semiconductor Research Institute in the United States. Kwon was expected to take a bigger role after the arrest of scion and heir apparent of Samsung Group, Jay Y Lee.


From the South Korean side, the Sejong the Great Aegis destroyer will participate in the joint drill.

Rear Adm. Brad Cooper, commander of U.S. Naval Forces in Korea, said in a release that the United States and Republic of Korea (ROK) navies "have always enjoyed a strong relationship", and that the arrival of the USS Michigan further reinforces their partnership.

The Pentagon's guided-missile-carrying USS Michigan, an Ohio-class submarine, resurfaced from the depths for a port call in the South Korean city of Busan Friday, the US Pacific Fleet announced, just days before supercarrier USS Ronald Reagan begins a 10-day joint exercise with South Korean and Japanese naval vessels. It also comes just days after the U.S. Navy publicized the arrival of the USS Tucson, a Los Angeles-class attack submarine, in South Korea on October 7.

"Measuring more than 360 feet long, Tucson is one of the stealthiest and most advanced submarines in the world", the navy said in a written statement. It is also equipped with about 150 Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of more than two-thousand kilometers.

The U.S. Airforce said the drill was the "first time" that B-1B Lancer strategic bombers had conducted nighttime combined training with Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) and the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF).
