 Under the influence of the epidemic situation, the joint military exercise between South Korea and the United States next month will be mainly based on computer simulation


According to the Yonhap news agency on July 26, the South Korea US joint performance in the second half of the year, which will be held after the Sun Festival on August 15, will focus on evaluating whether the South Korean army has full operational capability (FOC) in order to recover the wartime operational command. The source said that the joint exercise will focus on the assessment of full combat capability and will also carry out the joint defense situation inspection that the United States hopes.

According to the report, in this full operational capability assessment, the ROK and the US will check whether the ROK army has the ability to exercise operational command, the deployment of additional US military forces in case of incidents on the Korean Peninsula, and whether the South Korean army can rapidly deploy these forces to the war zone, etc.

It is understood that the exercise is mainly conducted by computer simulation, and relevant videos and documents may also be used. South Korea and the United States originally planned to assess all the conditions required for the transfer of combat power in the exercise, but eventually narrowed the scope to the core areas. This is mainly due to the impact of the new coronavirus epidemic, which makes it difficult for the United States to dispatch troops from the mainland and its troops stationed in Japan to South Korea.

South Korean Defense Ministry officials said that affected by the epidemic, various aspects of conditions are not ideal, South Korea will comprehensively consider various factors and implement the exercise in the most reasonable way. The evaluation of the full operational capability of the Korean army will be carried out in the core areas, and the US Defense Department also understands this.
