The US Navy's USS Michigan attack submarine arrived in Busan, South Korea's southern port city, on Friday, and it looks like it will be joined by a US aircraft carrier in a bold challenge to a defiant North Korea, Yonhap news reports.

The U.S. marine forces said the nuclear-powered attack submarine is also equipped with twelve vertical launch tubes for Tomahawk cruise missiles and four torpedo tubes.

The submarine deployment to Korea occurred around the same time the United States deployed a B-1B bomber, with two F-15K fighter jets, to the peninsula for joint drills, South Korean news service Money Today reported Wednesday.

The drill, called Maritime Counter Special Operations Exercise, is aimed at defending the infiltration of enemy special forces, according to the navy.

The ROKN said the allies would seek to boost their capability to carry out concerted and combined operations through anti-submarine warfare (ASW), missile alert drills, maritime interdiction operations (MIOs), and air defense operations, among others.

A second South Korean official who spoke anonymously said US forces are "irregularly" being deployed to the peninsula to participate in drills and joint training, and without disclosing deployment ahead of time, according to Yonhap.

From the South Korean side, the Sejong the Great Aegis destroyer will participate in the joint drill. In April, South Korean media reported that Navy SEALs aboard the MI had trained with a local force to decapitate North Korea's Kim Jong Un regime.
