The South Korean Air Force Operations Command will conduct a Joint Exercise to Respond to Large-Scale Aerial Intrusion on the 14th.

The term aerial refers to all airborne objects that can provoke, including manned and unmanned aircraft, cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, etc.

The Command will conduct joint response training in the forward area with the Army Ground Operations Command, Navy Operations Command, Army Capital Defense Command, and Marine Corps Northwest Island Defense Command. The Air Force conducted its independent training the day before.

The training was planned to verify the response measures and procedures derived from the Joint Tactical Discussion for the Development of the Enemy Air Body Mass Intrusion Response Capability held last month under the supervision of the Command and to strengthen our military’s joint air defense operation capabilities.

In this training, a large-scale aerial is simulated with about 800 actual and simulated targets for practical joint response.

In response to North Korea’s large-scale aerial intrusion, about 30 fighter jets, including F-35A, F-15K, and KF-16, and air defense forces such as Patriot, Cheongung, Sejong the Great-class destroyers, Falcon, Biho, Cheonma, etc., will respond systematically at different altitudes in their respective areas.

The training begins when the Air Force’s Master Control and Reporting Center (MCRC) detects targets that appear to be enemy large-scale aerial invasions and ballistic missile launches.

Then, fighter jets such as F-15K, KF-16, and air defense forces such as Patriot, Cheongung, Aegis ship, Biho, Cheonma, etc. will sequentially intercept enemy air bodies and check altitude-specific air defense mission performance procedures.

The exercise concludes that fighter jets, including the F-35A, assigned to defense provision missions will destroy the enemy’s remaining targets.

The Command stated, “In this training, key personnel related to operations of the Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps will gather at the Korean Air Operations Center (KAOC) to directly confirm the training situation, discuss response strategies in real-time, and discuss ways to enhance jointness.”
