Thai and American Navy forces have concluded their joint naval drill named CARAT 2013.

The operation, conducted at Yothaka Navy Agriculture Center in Ongkharak district, Nakhon Nayok province, aimed to strengthen the relationships between the two nations, improve strategies and instruction distribution, enhance anti-terrorism measures and mitigate natural disasters.

The drill included combat simulation between the red team, performed by the US Navy forces assuming the role of narcotics smuggling rings, and the blue, comprised of Thai Navy marines played as the government forces.

During the drill, Thailand's Navy has shown its efficiency in devising strategies, establishing special task unit and deploying boats, armored jets and drones to seize the opponent areas.

As the result, Thailand's team was able to fulfill its mission in a few minutes, with only one injury.
