U.S. Marines with the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System platoon, Marine Rotational Force – Darwin, are inserted with a Royal Australian Air Force C-17 Globemaster III aircraft after an airfield seizure at Bradshaw Field Training Area, NT, Australia, Aug. 12, 2021.
U.S. Marines seized Nackeroo airfield during Exercise Loobye in preparation for a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System Rapid Infiltration.
Exercises like Loobye demonstrate MRF-D’s ability to conduct operations as a joint force with the ADF, execute expeditionary operations, like HIRAIN, and exemplify their mutual dedication to being postured and ready to respond to a crisis or contingency in the Indo-Pacific region.
