NAVAL AIR STATION POHANG, Republic of Korea - U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Matthew Carlson, an aviation ordnance technician with Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS) 12, attaches a BSU-33 conical tailfin onto a MK-82 High Explosive General Purpose bomb during hot-refueling and hot-load training at Naval Air Station Pohang, Republic of Korea, Dec. 12, 2017. Once the tailfins are attached, the bombs are considered “completed” and ready to be loaded. The purpose of the exercise was to show that the Marines could effectively establish a forward arming and refueling point with supporting entities and conduct the training evolutions on foreign soil.
