Exercise Rim of the Pacific, more commonly known as RIMPAC, is the single largest naval exercise on the face of our lovely blue marble. This year, the biennial exercises brought together 22 countries, 55 ships, over 200 fixed-wing and rotary aircraft and roughly 25,000 soldiers, sailors and marines.

Those numbers are just fine and dandy, but perhaps you'd rather see what just a portion of that force looks like. Well, here you go. This monumental fleet is made up of 42 vessels, and is being led by the Nimitz-class supercarrier USS Ronald Reagan. It's impossible to know from this video which ships (aside from the Reagan) and countries are represented in this flotilla, although Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, China, South Korea, Singapore all sent vessels to this year's exercise.

Scroll down for a video of the entire impressive formation. RIMPAC 2014 concludes on August 1.
