'US submarines, surface, amphibious, air assets hold warfighting drills in Philippine Sea'




The largest military navy just had its warfighting training in Philippine Sea last May 2 to 8.

The United States of America (USA) sent three submarines under United States Navy Submarine Group Seven have joined US Navy 7th Fleet surface, air, and amphibious assets for an advanced military warfighting drill in the Philippine Sea.



“A key element to our collective success is our ability to employ undersea warfare capabilities in support of multiple missions,” said US Navy Rear Admiral Jimmy Pitts, Commander, Submarine Group Seven (CSG7).

“This is a Navy-wide effort, and as this exercise demonstrates, every 7th Fleet Task Force is fully invested in testing and improving our cross-community coordination. The seamless, unified operations between our warfare communities demonstrate a strength and professionalism that is only possible because of our routine training and engagement,” Rear Admiral Pitts added.

As per the US Navy, the series of warfighting integrated exercises aimed to develop warfighting concepts, improve maritime lethality, and enable real-world proficiency and readiness to respond to any contingency.
“This exercise was an opportunity for our submariners to gain proficiency and experience leveraging the combined tactical strength of our various task force units,” said US Navy Lt. Cmdr. Jess Feldon, CSG7 Deputy Chief of Staff, Plans, Operations and Engagements. “Throughout the exercise, we engaged in constructive dialogue with our counterparts in the air, on land and at sea. These discussions directly contribute to improving how we prepare and train future submarine crews for operations in the Indo-Pacific.”

The CSG7 directs submarine activities throughout the Western Pacific, Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea; two forward-deployed submarine tenders and four attack submarines homeported in Guam; five surveillance towed array sensor system vessels and three oceanographic survey vessels when tasked for theater anti-submarine warfare operations.
