Kim Jong-un has been pictured grinning broadly during an air show in North Korea as his fighter jets rehearsed destroying enemy aircraft carriers, as stated by Daily Mail.
The enthralled dictator could be seen laughing with his top military officials as warplanes and attack helicopters carried out drills at one of his airfields.
Combat training and war games were accompanied by low flypasts and a colourful aerial display.
His state news agency later hailed the air force for its ability to 'destroy any targets, including enemy aircraft carriers'.
The trials came just days after a pair of US carriers and Japanese naval vessels conducted a joint drill in waters off the Korean peninsula, in an apparent show of force following yet another North Korean ballistic missile test.
