3RD MAW CURRENT PHOTOS
Four MV-22B Ospreys assigned to Marine Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 362, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 16, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), land near a simulated weapons engagement zone during an air assault in support of 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, at Camp Pendleton, Calif., Feb. 26, 2020. Air assaults enable commanders to avoid enemy surfaces, exploit gaps, and maintain the flexibility and mobility needed to strike objectives in otherwise inaccessible areas during a Marine Air Ground Task Force mission. This culminating event signified that VMM-362 has reached full operational capability since its reactivation in 2018, ultimately increasing the lethality of 3rd MAW.

Vipers Storm the Sky
U.S. Marine Corps AH-1Z Vipers with Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron (HMLA) 369, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), take flight to participate in exercise Viper Storm at Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton, Calif., Dec. 11, 2019. The AH-1Z Viper gives MAG-39, the Marine expeditionary force and the joint force the ability to deter potential adversaries and provide combat-ready units the capability to engage from the sea and over long distances against a near-peer threat.
