Marines with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 261 (Reinforced), 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, mount a Defensive Weapon System on an MV-22 Osprey and check the system for functionability. The DWS is a belly-mounted variation of the GAU-17, a 7.62 mm mini-gun that fires 3,000 rounds per minute and ranges out to 1,500 meters. The 24th MEU has equipped several of their Ospreys with the relatively new system, designed to provide self-defense for the aircraft. The 24th MEU is deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a U.S. Central Command theater reserve force providing support for maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
