U.S. Marines use smoke as concealment during a training exercise as part of Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) at the Penanjong Garrison, Tutong, Brunei. The smokescreen was one of the techniques U.S. Marines and members of the Royal Brunei Land Force used as they trained in military operations in urban terrain tactics.
CARAT is a nine-country, bilateral exercise series between the U.S., Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand and Timor-leste.
The U.S. Marines are with 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment currently assigned to 4th Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force under the unit deployment program.
