Three MV-22B Ospreys assigned to Marine Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 362, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 16, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), depart 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.
