SUBIC BAY, Philippines . Philippine and U.S. Marines drive a Philippine assault amphibious vehicle (AAV) onto the Philippine navy landing platform docks ship BRP Davao Del Sur (LD-602) during an AAV subject matter expert exchange (SMEE) in Subic Bay, Philippines, Sept. 4, 2019. The U.S. Marine Corps has partnered with the Philippine marine corps for the last eight years to develop skill sets and policies to enable the Philippine navy and Marine Corps to conduct amphibious operations. This SMEE was a milestone in these efforts, marking the first time that Philippine forces launched their AAVs from a Philippine Navy amphibious ship and transited from ship to shore. The U.S. Marines are from AAV Company, 4th Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division. (U.S. Marine Corps photos by Lance Cpl. Jacob Hancock)
