 Navy SEALs announce huge changes to fight China with big new teams, hacking capabilities and more


April 28, 2021 Ryan Morgan
 

The U.S. Navy’s elite SEAL units are planning to shift their mission from counterterrorism missions to countering more advanced global threats like those posed by China and Russia.

Navy Rear Adm. H. Wyman Howard III, the commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command, described the changes to the SEAL units in an exclusive interview with the Associated Press published Wednesday.

Part of the shifting mission for the SEALs will see the number of SEAL platoons reduced by about 30 percent, while at the same time increasing the size of the SEAL units. Howard said the plan also involves adding personnel to the SEAL platoons who are trained in cyber and electronic warfare and unmanned systems. The SEAL teams are also working to improve their intelligence-gathering abilities and deceive enemy forces.
