The events are slated as follows:

- Maritime Awareness and Coastal Defense ? Palawan on October 3-14.

All exercise events are based on fictional scenario enhancing bilateral cooperation and interoperability among the participating forces.

The training is expected to build effective and ready forces capable of responding to security challenges. It allows the participating forces to plan, coordinate, and conduct combined military operations that can be applied across all ranges of military operations including amphibious operations and humanitarian assistance and disaster response.

As the national maneuver amphibious force, the Philippine Marine Corps has the amphibious capability that is most flexible and effective for national contingency.

The regular conduct of the exercise helps equip Marines with the latest techniques, tactics, and procedures in maneuver warfare.

Brig. Gen. Raul Jesus Caldez, exercise director, acknowledged, “The Kamandag exercise certainly boosts our territorial defense capabilities as we continue training with our allied forces in the region.” Marine Corps Public Affairs Office
