Modernising the USMC Rifle Squad ~ Video

The US Marine Corps will implement a new squad formation structure in order to meet the demands of future warfighting.


Announced yesterday: The future 12-Marine squad includes two new positions – an assistant squad leader and a squad systems operator. Every US Marine will have an automatic weapon, three Riflemen will convert to Grenadiers, and each squad will be equipped with a Designated Marksman Rifle. The transition to these advanced squad formations will occur in FY 2020. For full details watch the video.
