    Those are definitely Marine landing craft, and my guess is these are war games. The brown ring could be a wild goatse forming, but most likely a harmless explosive used to simulate live-fire exercises.

    But I`m only in Marine ROTC, so don`t be too angry if I`m wrong.

    The brown ring is called flak. See the shrapnel flying off of it?

    This is likely a live fire military excessive.

    i think that ring of smoke would be something commonly referred to as an "explosion". i know it`s a big word, but if you sound it out, you`ll eventually get ;)

    That`s just a smoke grenade going off. The white smoke is just engine exhaust. -- SSgt, USMC-R "Marines with Combat Assault Battalion, Ground Combat Element, 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade Forward, III Marine Expeditionary Force, in amphibious assault vehicles train with smoke grenades here Feb. 11, 2011. The training evolution also included courses of fire with the M2 50. caliber heavy machine gun and the Mk19 automatic grenade launcher at a newly-constructed range built for multinational training by Marines from 4th Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, III MEF, and Combat Assault Battalion, 3rd MarDiv, both assigned to GCE during Exercise Cobra Gold 2011.Cobra Gold 2011 is a yearly multinational, joint training exercise designed to improve partner nation interoperability.

    Easy. The pic shows South Korean Marine Corps’ amphibious vehicles and the Navy’s Landing Platform Helicopter (LPH) ship ‘Dokdo’ (behind) taking part in a mock landing operation in the sea off Incheon, west of Seoul, September 15, 2010. The operation marked the 60th anniversary of the U.S.-led United Nations troops’ Incheon Landing Operations during the 1950-1953 Korean War. The image was taken by Jo Yong-Hak/Reuters :-)

    "That`s just a smoke grenade going off."

    No. Smoke Grenades do not send shrapnel flying like this. I don`t know what it is, but I know what it isn`t.

    A Smoke Greande would need to stay on top of the water and be visible, not explode in one burst of smoke.

    Oddly enough, the only thing that comes to mind is a flak burst. If you look at any aerial WW2 footage campaign, you will see AA guns pumping the skies full of flak, which sends shrapnel flying into everywhich direction, hoping that it gets caught in the engines of the bombers above and crash.

    Flak proves cheaper and more efficient than firing rounds at a plane.

    If you check out WW2 flak on Google, you will notice a similarity, although, I`ve never seen one myself, so I can`t say.

    "The white smoke is just engine exhaust" - Really? Are they running on steam engines? The enemey would see you coming from 100 miles away. What modern engine generates exhaust like that?

    How about SMOKE GENERATORS???

    I`m not sure, but I bet its a smoke screen. Once it settles, the entire area will be blanketed in brown smoke.

    Might be an 80mm flak gun, but I doubt it. Probably just a screenshot of weapons testing.

    While I agree that it looks like flak, I can`t see them intentionally firing flak at that range so close to those small boats during an exercise!

    Those aren`t tug boats. They are Amtraks. Amphibius armoured cars with tank tracks.

    From what I have seen so far the boats are comming at us and to my understanding the ring of smoke is a beach defence guns round blowing up in mid air causing shratinal stuff to go everywhere maybe?

    I`m pretty sure that`s the muzzle flash and smoke from one of the guns of the battleship in the background. If you look carefully, you can see the ship`s superstructure through the smoke.
