US Special Operations Forces & South Korean Commandos Hold Joint Airdrop Drills

US special operations forces practised airdrops with a brigade of South Korean commandos on March 14 as part of efforts to deter the unexpected from North Korea.

The drills were conducted from a U.S. special operations MC-130 aircraft on the last day of the Freedom Shield exercises that saw participation from an unprecedented number of member states from the U.S.-led United Nations Command, which has operated as part of the armistice since the 1950-1953 Korean War.

One U.S. special operations liaison soldier, who spoke on condition of anonymity because his identity is operationally sensitive, said it demonstrated that the allies can work together in a conflict and South Korea is a good location to work with other allies.

Since 2016, U.S. special operations forces have been tasked with countering weapons of mass destruction (WMD), a role with particular relevance given North Korea’s growing nuclear arsenal. U.S. intelligence services say Pyongyang also operates biological and chemical weapons programs.
