This footage just surfaced on YouTube and shows off the incredible might the U.S. Navy and other branches are bringing to the Sea of Japan. Although the U.S. military has been running drills with South Korea for many years, this is one of the biggest.

These also happen to be the largest carriers in the world, so seeing them together is quite incredible.
