BARKING SANDS, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC, is underway, and new video shows just one example of what kind of exercises are taking place.
A video posted Sunday night on the RIMPAC Facebook page shows the decommissioned ex-USS Racine during a sinking exercise called SINKEX.
In the exercise, the ship went down in the Pacific Ocean after an additional live fire from aircraft and a submarine.
This marked the first time Japanese and U.S. teams worked together to target the ex-USS Racine.
The ex-USS Racine is about 50 miles from the coast of Kauai's Barking Sands, which was where a missile was launched.
Twenty-five nations, 46 ships, five submarines and about 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC, which takes place until Aug. 2.
