Guam - A joint effort training session between the Air Force and Navy made its way near the island this week. The crew departed from Hickam Air Base in Hawaii on a C-17 Globemaster III. The training was a maritime craft aerial delivery system where the military dropped Navy special warfare rigid-hull inflatable boats from the aircraft.

The War on Terror News reports that the mission is to train the branches together to enhance their response to challenges in the future. A Navy Special Warfare Unit from Guam also joined the training. The report adds that this provides the special operations community the ability to deploy these specifically designed boats beyond the range of detection systems such as radar, infrared or thermal enhancement.

Officials state the drop was a success.
