Iron Fist 2018 - Amphibious Reconnaissance

Post by Patriots » April 15th, 2018, 9:23 pm


U.S. Marines with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion and Japanese Soldiers with the Western Army Infantry Regiment, Japan Ground Self Defense Force, conduct a helocast exercise providing transportation as the Marines practiced loading from land and offloading into the water as part of Exercise Iron Fist 2018. Helocasting allows reconnaissance teams to travel longer distances before being dropped off for their final advancement to an objective area.

Iron Fist is an annual, bilateral amphibious training exercise designed to improve USMC and JGSDF’s ability to plan, communicate and conduct combined amphibious operations at the platoon, company and battalion levels.
