Here’s a nice little clip from the recent RIMPAC exercise featuring Marine CH-53E Super Stallions performing an air assault into the Kahuku training area on the north side of Oahu.
A couple notes, some troops are carrying Steyr AUG rifles, so they definitely aren’t Marines. Australians maybe? And did you notice the Newport class LST? Our Navy got rid of them years ago. I wonder who operates that one now?
That’s some of the nicer terrain in the Kahukus. Most of the time I spent there (and it was a lot) was in the far more rugged parts of the terrain.
