    180712-A-FJ530-1657 PACIFIC MISSILE RANGE FACILITY BARKING SANDS, Hawaii (July 12, 2018) Soldiers and civilians view the launch and impact of the naval strike missile (NSM) on a television at Pacific Missile Range Facility Barking Sands Hawaii, July 12, during a Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise sinking exercise (SINKEX). Multiple air, land, and sea assets participated in the SINKEX and sank decommissioned ex-USS Racine (LST 1191), positioned at sea. This was the first time U.S. Army ground forces have participated in a sinking exercise during RIMPAC. Twenty-five nations, 46 ships, five submarines, about 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 27 to Aug. 2 in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world’s largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity while fostering and sustaining cooperative relationships among participants critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security of the world’s oceans. RIMPAC 2018 is the 26th exercise in the series that began in 1971. (U.S. Army photo by Capt. Rachael Jeffcoat/Released)
