(VIDEO) Watch U.S. Marines Conduct Flight Operations From The Deck Of The USS San Diego

April 21, 2017

USS San Diego (LPD-22), a San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock, was designed to provide the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps with modern, sea-based platforms that are networked, survivable, and built to operate with 21st century transformational platforms, such as the MV-22 Osprey, the (since canceled) Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV), air-cushioned landing craft (LCACs), and future means by which Marines are delivered ashore. An amphibious transport dock, also called a landing platform/dock (LPD), is an amphibious warship that embarks, transports, and lands elements of a landing force for expeditionary warfare missions.


In this footage Marines with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 161, under the command of Marine Aircraft Group 16 (MAG-16) and the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (3rd MAW), attached to the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit conducts flight operations from the flight deck of the USS San Diego (LPD-22) during PHIBRON-MEU Integration. PMINT is the 15th MEU’s first at-sea training giving the Marines the opportunity to work closely with their Navy counterpart to complete mission essential tasks.
