"After Kim Jong Un’s decision to test a new long-range ballistic missile as a “gift for the American bastards” on the 4th of July, the United States teamed up with allies South Korea and Japan to deliver a not-so subtle response.
On July 7th, two U.S. B-1B Lancer Bombers departed from Anderson Air Force Base in Guam (below) and made the trek to a bombing range near the North Korean border to deliver some mock ordnance
as a demonstration of how quickly, and accurately, U.S. forces can strike.
The B-1Bs were accompanied by South Korean F-15K Slam Eagle fighters and U.S. Air Force F-16C fighters (top picture) throughout the 2,000 mile round trip to the Pilsung bombing range and back, where they dropped a joint directed attack munition (JDAM) GPS-guided bomb onto a simulated North Korean missile launcher.
Local media reported that each aircraft dropped one 2,000 pound GBU-56 laser-guided JDAM, an improved version of the storied JDAM satellite guided bomb that has been in use since 1997."
