The Marines conducted a 30-day exercise called NATIVE FURY from mid-May through mid-June 1998 in Kuwait. It was a five-phase operation over a two-week period that included downloading approximately 400 pieces of Marine Prepositioned Equipment from an MPS ship. During Native Fury '98 in May 1998, the Diego Garcia-based Vehicle Cargo Ship, Corporal Louis J. Hauge, successfully transferred amphibious assault vehicles, 155mm. howitzers, and M-1 battle tanks, among other items, to the shore. This represented the first large-scale landing of major items of equipment undertaken since the 1990-91 Gulf War. Native Fury '98 included a field training exercise, live fires, and a command post exercise. The purpose of the exercise was to download portions of the MPS, bring in Marines to fall in on the equipment, and then conduct FTXs and CPXs in support of DESERT THUNDER.
