A US Navy aircraft carrier group is expected to arrive in South Korea on Wednesday to take part in joint annual drills, the US military announced. It comes after the North warned of “merciless” attacks if its sovereignty is violated during the exercises.

The strike group will arrive at the port city of Busan on Wednesday, US Naval Forces Korea said, as cited by Yonhap News.

Arriving at the port will be the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier ‘USS Carl Vinson’, along with aircraft from the Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2, and the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer ‘USS Wayne E. Meyer.’ More than 80 aircraft are aboard the supercarrier.

A total of 5,500 crew members will arrive as part of the strike group.

About 3,600 US service members were deployed to join the 28,000 US troops already based in South Korea for the annual exercise, which will run through April 30, Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said on March 3.
