UH-1Y Venom and AH-1Z Viper Conduct by Cpl. Claudia Nix

FARPs.  Have you noticed that the USMC is doing more of them?  Don't sleep on this development folks.  The Commandant himself has come out and talked about FARPs, Expeditionary Bases as being Service agnostic.  Doesn't matter who shows up.  US Army, US Air Force, of course the US Navy...and I'm assuming our allies.  Whoever shows up needing fuel, beans or bullets will get resupplied.

The interesting thing is that the Army still serves as the main "supplier" for the joint force with the Navy being a huge conduit for them.  I'm assuming that the USMC concept in development will mean that we're gonna be a "forward" hub in supply chain with our EABs serving as distant spokes in the wheel.

This is a bit interesting from my chair.  I guess we're going from robbing the Army to supply certain units. 

That alone will be a huge cultural change.
