Here are some big changes that may be coming to the Marine Corps
The Marine Corps’ second round of changes to how it fights shows moves in command, aviation, logistics and ground combat and shifts that might see stateside Marine reservists operating drones for active units overseas, ditching weapons companies from infantry battalions, and a host of other moves.
Those are some highlights of what Marine Corps leaders unveiled recently to media with a Force Design 2030 annual update.
The service’s first announcement in 2020 made sweeping changes that included shedding tanks from the ranks, swapping loads of conventional artillery for rockets and reducing the overall manpower from its 2020 level of 186,000 to 174,000 by 2030.
In the 2021 update, the Corps reviewed decisions leadership already has made, laid out next steps and hinted at adjustments that could have impact on forces large and small.https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/your-marine-corps/2021/04/26/here-are-some-big-changes-that-may-be-coming-to-the-marine-corps/
