USA – Navy, Marine Corps aim to refine, test modern warfighting concepts in Large Scale Exercise 2021 (Defense News)

The Navy and the Marine Corps are testing out modern warfighting concepts on a scale never seen before as part of Large Scale Exercise 2021, paving the way for even larger naval exercises in the future, according to Navy leaders. Labeled the “biggest exercise we’ve done in a generation” by Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday, the exercise from Aug. 3 to 16 pulls together multiple elements inspired by other training events — including strike group certification exercises like Composite Unit Training, integrated live exercises like Bold Alligator, and virtual exercises like Fleet Synthetic Training — and completes them in concert as part of a single, globally integrated exercise.
