The USS Michigan, the world’s biggest nuclear-powered ballistic missile sub, arrived at a naval base in Busan, South Korea carrying 150 Tomahawk cruise missiles.

With a length of 170.6 meters and 18,000-tonnes behind it, the vessel is the second Ohio-class nuclear-powered guided missile submarine in the US Navy.

The Navy said the Ohio-Class guided-missile submarine was making a routine visit during a regularly scheduled deployment to the region, in the second visit of its kind last year.

But the port call comes at a time of escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea, which has stepped up the pace of its nuclear weapons program and missile provocations amid fears of World War 3.

The 560-foot-long USS Michigan is armed to the teeth with tactical missiles and is capable of launching strikes and supporting missions by special operation forces, a statement said.

Its homeport is Bremerton, Washington, but the submarine is based in the US Pacific island territory of Guam – which has repeatedly been threatened by despot Kim Jong Un.

Rear Adm. Brad Cooper, commander of Naval Forces Korea, said: “The US and South Korean navies have always enjoyed a strong relationship.

“Today, our relationship is stronger than it has ever been and our ironclad partnership is further reinforced by this visit from Michigan.
