    160718-N-MZ309-047 PACIFIC OCEAN (July 18, 2016) – An assault amphibious vehicle (AAV) enters the well deck of Royal Australian Navy Canberra-class landing helicopter dock ship Her Majesty’s Australian Ship Canberra (LHD 02) marking the first time an AAV lands on an Australian ship during Rim of the Pacific 2016. Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world's oceans. RIMPAC 2016 is the 25th exercise in the series that began in 1971. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Ryan Riley/Released)
