The pride of the US Navy the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan has arrived outside Okinawa with fearsome guided-missile destroyers USS Stethem, USS Chafee and USS Mustin.

A staggering 14,000 troops will take part in the exercises as the White House ordered flexing of US military might in the region.

US Navy F/A-18 Hornets and Super Hornets from the Carrier Air Wing (CVW) are expected to be involved.

Marines and naval officers will take part in firing tests, fly overs and mock battles in a bid to ensure they are each ready for conflict with the North.

Highly trained maritime patrol and reconnaissance squadron will spend ten days in the area, in an action which is likely to provoke North Korea.

The nuclear-powered USS Ronald Reagan is one of America’s fearsome Nimitz-class super-carriers. She is a key part of the US Pacific Fleet and flagship of Carrier Strike Group Five home-ported in Japan.

She is more than 1,000 feet long, caost $4.5Bn, and with more than 5,600 military personnel on board she is the size of a small American town.

Her wing of more than 90 aircraft and helicopters includes the incredibly capable multirole combat jet the F/A-18 Hornet. The Hornet has a top speed of 1,200 and carries an array of hyper-destructive air-to-ground missiles.

Hornets from the USS Ronald Reagan could be over Pyongyang in less than 30 minutes.
