Category: Firearms

As usual, TFB has selected a few pictures for you. By this time you know it, it’s TFB’s Photo Of The Day to keep you in a good mood. Get a coffee, take a break and enjoy a few minutes off. Here we have Australian Army soldiers together with U.S. Marines with the Marine Rotational Force – Darwin as they dismount an MV-22B Osprey during Exercise Koolendong at Bradshaw Field Training Area, NT, Australia. This happened at the end of August of this year.

I wonder how many dangerous snakes and other bugs there are per acre?

An AH-1Z Viper with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 363 (Reinforced), Marine Rotational Force – Darwin makes a pass over the objective during Exercise Koolendong at Bradshaw Field Training Area, NT, Australia, Aug. 29, 2021.

U.S. Marines and Australian Army soldiers worked together to conduct a simulated aerial assault during the exercise. Exercise Koolendong validates MRF-D’s and the Australian Defence Force’s ability to conduct expeditionary command and control operations, demonstrating the shared commitment to being ready to respond to a crisis or contingency in the Indo-Pacific region.
