Battle rattle - Infantry term for what you carry into combat
Ruck out - Full load i.e. what you carry when you move from one location to another
As a former Infantryman and squad leader, the ever increasing weight of what is required of the infantry is indeed a problem. There needs to be a concerted effort to reduce the weight battle rattle (lighter weapons, body armor, water, first aid kits, gas masks, helmets, etc) along with an effort to reduce weight and improved carry of ruck out (rations, extra ammo, fuel, water, weather gear, sleeping bag, radios, batteries, crypto gear, crew served weapons, etc)
Consider that while a mech infantry squad has their vehicle that can carry gear, there is often not enough room for all that is needed. This situation can be improved with support (HQ) elements providing common carry (2 1/2 ton trucks) and and common logistics (rations and kitchen, etc)
So I guess I am saying, right idea, wrong reasons.
