The U.S. Navy Los-Angeles-class attack submarine (SSN) USS Cheyenne made an official port call to the southeastern city of Busan, South Korea on June 6 in the latest display of Washington’s might amid continuing tensions with North Korea over its ballistic missile and nuclear programs.

The USS Cheyenne, a powerful 6,900-ton submarine, which is normally based in Pearl Harbour, Hawaii, entered South Korean waters this morning and docked in the port city in order to replenish supplies.

The submarine, which is equipped with Tomahawk nuclear missiles, had been taking part in drills with the Japanese Maritime Self-Defence Force.

The US military has been beefing up its resources in the region as fears grow over the growing nuclear and missile threat from the North.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he had sent two nuclear submarines to waters off the Korean Peninsula in response to North Korean provocations, and had “a lot of firepower over there” during a phone conversation with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on April 29.

The U.S. Navy says on its official web page that attack submarines like the USS Cheyenne are designed to “project power ashore with Tomahawk cruise missiles and Special Operation Forces (SOF).”

The Cheyenne is home-ported in Pearl Harbor and is the 62nd and last of the Los Angeles-class attack submarines. The Cheyenne was commissioned in 1996 and weighs more than 6,000 tons when submerged, according to the military newspaper Stars and Stripes.

The Cheyenne is named for Cheyenne, Wyoming. When the submarine was originally commissioned a large delegation of Cheyenne residents attended the ceremony in Virginia as part of a trip organized by the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce in August of 1996.

Stars and Stripes article says the Cheyenne arrived in Busan just a month after the USS Michigan paid a visit.

The aircraft carriers USS Carl Vinson and Ronald Reagan conducted dual operations last week, and the Nimitz is on it’s way to the Pacific as well, according to Stars and Stripes.

The USS Ronald Reagan and USS Carl Vinson strike groups operated in formation alongside Japanese forces in waters near the Korean peninsula Thursday, marking the largest display yet of naval power in response to North Korea’s recent ballistic missile tests.

Meanwhile, the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz is also headed to the Western Pacific, though Navy officials say:

“These carrier strike groups, as well as two Japan Maritime Self Defense Force ships, were taking advantage of the opportunity to train and improve the way they operate together,” 7th Fleet officials said in a statement. “Operating two carrier strike groups provides a unique capability, one of the many ways the U.S. Navy promotes security, stability, and prosperity throughout the region.”

Meanwhile, Nimitz will first sail south to Naval Air Station North Island in San Diego, where it will meet up with the destroyers USS Kidd and USS Shoup, as well as other vessels, Navy officials said.

Military officials have said that the Nimitz departure was preplanned and not in response to North Korean provocations.

“It is not uncommon for incoming and outgoing carrier strike groups’ transit timing to overlap as one begins a deployment and the other concludes theirs,” U.S. Pacific Fleet spokesman Lt. Cmdr. William Knight said in a statement.

Kim Jong Un needs to open his eyes to reality and the U.S. Navy Strike groups now in the Western Pacific region, North Korea has 0 chance once we unleash them.  Stand down fatboy and save your people and your country before you hit the point of no return.
