To prove its effectiveness for a battalion-sized force, Marines and Sailors of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, Marines of Marine Rotational Force - Darwin and soldiers of 5th Royal Australian Regiment trained as a force of nearly 1,000 troops conducting simultaneous live-fire ranges and assaults.
