Source Title: landing training in Japan and the United States
Beijing, February 1 (Xinhua) Japan’s Kyodo News Agency reported that on February 1, Japan’s land self defense force and the U.S. Marine Corps carried out joint landing training at a training ground in Jinwu Town, Okinawa Prefecture. Influenced by COVID-19, training is non-public. The training starts on January 28 and ends on February 6.
It is reported that under the condition that the Marines are guarding the surrounding area, we can see from outside the base that the CH-47, a large transport helicopter from the mainland, takes off and lands at the training ground.
In recent years, the integration of the Marine Corps and the Marine Corps has been accelerated. According to the report, the training was also attended by the “land and water mobile corps” of the islands defense special forces, aiming to deepen Japan us cooperation. However, due to the failure of the Maritime Self Defense Force transport ship “big corner”, the amphibious armored vehicle “aav-7” and small boats could not be used, and part of the training was suspended.
Lu Zi pointed out that the training started on January 28 and is planned to end on February 6. On the morning of February 1 local time, Marines, armed with rifles or weapons, landed on the beach in small boats. It was originally planned that the “land and water mobile regiment” would also carry out the training together, but it would land from CH-47 instead.
Japanese media pointed out that around the “Marine Mobile mission”, it has been learned that the Marines and the Marines have reached a secret agreement to allow them to stay in the US Army’s Schwab barracks. However, the Japanese government denied the deployment.
