Russian amphibious assault units have landed on a US warship as part of the Rim of the Pacific-2012 international naval war games off Hawaii.
For three hours, the “black berets” from Russia’s Admiral Panteleyev large anti-submarine ship were rehearsing an amphibious landing on the Port Royal destroyer.
After that the ships practiced synchronized shooting on a land target.
More than 20,000 servicemen, 45 warships and 100 warplanes from 22 countries are drilling together in Russia’s first RIMPAC exercise.
RIMPAC is held once every two years.
