BRADSHAW FIELD TRAINING AREA, Australia - Lance Cpl. Justin Oates, machine gunner, Weapons Platoon, Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Marine Rotational Force - Darwin, engages a simulated enemy force with an M240B machine gun, here, Sept. 2. Throughout the exercise, MRF-D Marines conducted day and night live-fire training. This training evolution is the first of its kind here in which Marines with MRF-D and the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit worked bilaterally with the Australian soldiers of Bravo Company, 5th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment as a "proof of concept" to assess the capacity of the training ranges to support a battalion-sized live-fire event.
