Three US aircraft carrier strike groups will hold joint drills in the Western Pacific, the Pentagon has confirmed.
The last time three U.S. carrier strike groups exercised together was in 2007, near Guam.

While at sea, the US strike force will conduct air defense drills, sea surveillance, defensive air combat training and close-in coordinated maneuvers, among others.
