Recap of the Article

On June 5, a B-1 Lancer from the 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron executed its first live munitions drop over South Korea in seven years, alongside two Republic of Korea F-15Ks. This exercise, involving the release of live 500-pound GBU-38 Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM), showcased the combined forces’ capability to strike multiple targets simultaneously in a contested environment. The drill also featured U.S. Air Force F-16s, Marine Corps F-35Bs, ROK Air Force F-35As, and KF-16s engaging in air-to-air training over the Korean Peninsula, underscoring the importance of precision targeting and strike capabilities.

Lt. Gen. David Iverson emphasized the joint forces’ ability to conduct simultaneous multi-target strikes, while Lt. Col. Christian Hoover highlighted the B-1 fleet’s precision targeting with live weapons in an unfamiliar location. This exercise is part of the extended deterrence commitment between the U.S. and South Korea, reaffirmed during the Defense Ministers’ meeting in Singapore.
