The two-week drill which began on April 15 involves more than 100 aircraft, 100 American troops and 600 South Koreans. The move comes amid speculation about Pyongyang’s 5th nuclear tests and long range missile firing ahead of the Congress of the North’s Workers’ Party due in early May. The US said Max Thunder was a regular drill and irrelevant to the current situation on the Korean peninsula.
