Steel Knight 23
A U.S. Army MH-47 Chinook helicopter with 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment hovers over the water as part of helocast training with Marines from Bravo Company, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division, during Steel Knight 23 off the coast of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, Dec. 2, 2022. Helocasting is a maritime insertion method for small units during amphibious operations. Steel Knight is an annual combined arms live-fire exercise which ensures 1st MARDIV is optimized for naval expeditionary warfare in contested spaces, and is purpose-built to facilitate future operations afloat and ashore.
