They will for the first time feature six F-22 Raptor stealth jets, that arrived to South specifically for the war games along with six F-35As stealth jets.

Part of the force taking part in the wargames, including a dozen of F-35B stealth jets, will fly from a Japanese airbase, where they have been stationed.

The large-scale maneuvers, reportedly “the largest-ever combined air force between the allies” will also involve dozens of other fighter jets on both sides, as well as American B-1B Lancer strategic bombers and carrier-based electronic warfare aircraft.

A total of 12,000 personnel and over 230 aircraft will be engaged in the drills, that will run to December 8.
