    U.S. Marine Corps MV-22B Osprey's with Marine Aircraft Group 16, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), conduct air to air refueling operations during Marine Corps training exercise Summer Fury 21 at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California, July 7, 2021. The importance of aerial refueling is to extend the range of an aircraft’s ability to remain in the air and combat effective during maritime operations, especially in coastal regions, which will be contested and dangerous, compelling the Marine Corps to operate in an increasingly dispersed manner. Summer Fury is an exercise conducted by 3rd MAW in order to maintain and build capability, strength and trust within its units to generate the readiness and lethality needed to deter and defeat adversaries during combat operations as the U.S. Marine Corps refines tactics and equipment in accordance with Force Design 2030.
