   Pyongyang, November 23 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialist aggressors staged madcap air war exercises against the DPRK on Nov. 22 with the air above south Korea as an operational theatre, according to military sources. More than 150 planes including F-16 and A-10 of the 7th air force of the U.S. imperialist aggression troops in south Korea and overseas-based F-15, F/A-18 and others were involved in the adventurous exercises.
    Formations of fighter-bombers, pursuit-assault and assault planes conducted the exercises of striking ground targets, close air support exercises and air battle exercises in the air above the West Sea of Korea off Inchon and in the air above the areas of Osan, Ansong, Hongchon, Nyongwol and Jechon while formations of overseas-based fighter-bombers were busy with bomb-dropping exercises in the sky above the areas of Nyongwol and Phyongchang.
    These war maneuvers were aimed at bolstering the capabilities for precision attacks on strategic targets in the DPRK and preemptive strikes at it.
    Meanwhile, the U.S. naval task force of Kitty Hawk staged sea battle and combined anti-submarine exercises under the simulated conditions of an "emergency" on the Korean Peninsula in waters off Yokosuka in coordinated operation with submarines of the Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force.
    On the same day, U-2 made high-altitude flight for hours in the sky above Tokjok Islet, Phochon, Rinje and Sokcho to spy on the targets deep in the DPRK. Meanwhile, five tactical reconnaissance planes including RC-7B and RC-12 made shuttle flights in the sky above Kimpho-Hwachon and Phochon-Sokcho areas to spy on the frontline areas of the DPRK.
