MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan - U.S. Marines with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 121 conduct hot refuel on F-35B Lightning II aircraft while wearing Mission Oriented Protective Posture gear level four at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, Nov. 15, 2017. A hot refuel is a fast-paced fueling method that allows aircraft to take in fuel while powered up, which gets them back to the fight quicker. Executing missions on time and being faster than the enemy is a vital aspect to the Marine Corps, and exercises like these assure that Marines can keep working quickly no matter what environment they’re forced to work in.
