South Korea's Navy and Air Force on Thursday conducted a joint guided missile drill in the East Sea.
The Navy announced that the drill was carried out to enhance combined operations capability against enemy warships.
Fifteen Navy ships, including the 32-hundred-ton Yang Manchun destroyer, a P-3 maritime patrol aircraft, a Lynx helicopter and Air Force's FA-50, KF-16 and F-4E fighter jets were mobilized to fire guided missiles at simulated enemy targets.
A Navy official said that the latest drill was conducted as it had been previously scheduled and was not related to North Korea's test-launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday.
