U.S. Marines  and Norwegian Costal Ranger Commandos (KJK) conduct water casting training aboard a CB90-class fast assault craft during Exercise Platinum Ren at Fort Trondennes, Harstad, Norway, on May 14, 2018.To see the Swedish designed CB90 put through its pages by the Brazilian navy, click here.

Water casting is the technique of casting off troops from a low flying  helicopter or fast-moving boat and then retrieving them from the water when the job is done.

Here’s another video showing the work of the KJK, also known as the Kystjegerkommandoen.

The Platinum Ren exercise with KJKs is a security cooperation training event aimed at strengthening coalition partnerships and sustaining mission-essential tasks in a harsh operating environment.

The Marines in the photo are with the 1st Platoon, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion of the 1st Marine Division.
