SEOUL, March 27. /TASS/. South Korea and the United States launched on Friday a large-scale joint maritime training exercise designed to strengthen interoperability in amphibious operations between the allies’ forces, South Korea’s Navy has said.
The five-day maneuvers in South Korea’s southern port city of Pohang are part of the annual landing drill known as Ssangyong.
The war game involves up to 7,600 marines and sailors of the two countries, 30 naval vessels, 80 aircraft and 40 armored vehicles.
Among them are three US amphibious ships - Bonhomme Richard, Green Bay and Ashland, the Navy said.
