The drill was aimed at mea­sur­ing the com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills between Korea and U.S. base defense troops and at improv­ing the capa­bil­i­ties to react against ene­my asym­met­ric fight­ing pow­er.

This drill includ­ed 40 oper­a­tions mem­bers, armored vehi­cles, armed patrol vehi­cles, of the wing, and com­bat mem­bers and armored Hum­bee vehi­cles of the U.S. unit. The drill began with a noti­fi­ca­tion that said the U.S. spe­cial oper­a­tions troops was about to infil­trate.

Imme­di­ate­ly after the wing’s base oper­a­tions depart­ment announced a Korea‑U.S. joint base defense drill through loud­speak­ers and a trunk­ed radio sys­tem (TRS) in Kore­an and Eng­lish, and the U.S. troops were deployed to the oper­a­tions area by the unit’s major items of equip­ment.

Short­ly after, the joint efforts of the wing’s strike forces and the U.S. troops destroyed ene­my spe­cial oper­a­tions forces, thus final­iz­ing the drill.

The 5th Tac­ti­cal Air­lift Wing, in par­tic­u­lar, took this drill as an oppor­tu­ni­ty to sharp­en their oper­a­tions sit­u­a­tion announce­ment capa­bil­i­ties by con­duct­ing a Korea‑U.S. joint com­mu­ni­ca­tion exer­cise from start to fin­ish under the direc­tion of the offi­cer con­duc­tion exer­cise.
