Exercise Cobra Gold

Post by 22A » Mon Feb 19, 2018 9:37 pm

Announced on Japanese English Language news channel (Sky 507) that this year's Exercise Cobra Gold has begun.
29 nations are taking part with America, Thailand (host nation) and South Korea being the main participants.
China have sent Observers to the exercise, but it was reported, China & Thailand hold joint exercises every year. Thailand is buying Chinese subs and tanks.

"The exercise begins with shaping the battle space," said Master Sgt. Brandon Brooks the assistant operations chief, III Marine Division. "We do this by first using Royal Thai Air Force F-16s and U.S. Marine F/A-18s to take out enemy air defenses to clear the beach for the amphibious assault vehicles."
