The Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI) is currently conducting a massive inter-services exercise dubbed LATGAB 2013, involving all the armed services. This started on April 15 and will end on May 29, 2013.

Due to the quantity of photos available, I will be dividing this thread into several parts, with this as Part 1: The Marines Embark their Landing Transports

Below are a collection of photos collated from different sources. Special mention to Ms. Audrey (aka onlyaudrey@timawa.net / Audreydefence @ milnuts / audryliahepburn@kaskus)
