Artillery Marines from 1st Battalion, 12th Marines escort a Navy/Marine Corps Expeditionary Ship Interdiction System launcher vehicle ashore aboard Pacific Missile Range Facility Barking Sands, Hawaii, Aug. 16, 2021. The Marines of 1/12 struck a naval target ship Aug. 15, 2021, with two Naval Strike Missiles, which flew 100 nautical miles away before finding their mark. The Marine Corps’ primary modernization priority in support of Force Design 2030 is fulfilling the requirement for a ground-based anti-ship missile capability. NMESIS is the Marine Corps’ first solution meeting this requirement. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Luke Cohen, released)
