South Korea's Air Force said Wednesday it is taking part in a U.S.-led air-to-air combat training exercise launched earlier this week at an air base in Nevada.

South Korea has mobilized six F-15K fighter jets for the Red Flag exercise, held between Jan. 22 and Feb. 4 at Nellis Air Force Base, according to the Air Force.

The aerial combat training drill, also joined by Saudi Arabian aircrews, is aimed at improving air combat maneuvers and interoperability among the allied forces.

The three countries will engage in aerial infiltration and interdiction drills.

The exercise was first launched in 1975.
