Brazilian, Paraguayan, and US Marines Conduct Combined Training

The Brazilian Navy’s (MB, in Portuguese) Fleet Marine Squad (FFE, in Portuguese) deployed to the state of Goiás, in central Brazil, to conduct Operation Formosa, the largest exercise of the Brazilian marines’ training cycle. The exercise brought together 1,700 service members from Brazil, Paraguay, and the United States to the Brazilian Army’s Formosa Training Camp (CIF, in Portuguese), September 21-October 3, 2018.

Operation Formosa seeks to maintain marines’ readiness capabilities. As such, marines simulate an amphibious operation with the use of weapons and combined assets from partner nation marines.

Although the exercise takes place in a dry climate region away from the ocean, CIF facilitates the use of land and air assets, as well as live fire. The camp is Brazil’s largest training center.
