Marine Corps to pivot on critical war fighting systems, but commandant still vague on details

via Marine Corps Times.
The top Marine told Congress that this year is the “inflection point” for the Marine Corps to begin changes that will keep it relevant and ready against adversaries a decade from now.

But he remained vague on the details of those changes.

On Thursday, Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger told the House Armed Services Committee that this year is the time for the service to pivot, but that the budgets for fiscal years 2022 and 2023 will show significantly more changes.

There were new priorities already in the pending 2021 budget, such as anti-ship missile systems, he said.

A massive change in the force structure of the Corps along with huge changes to the type and quantities of gear we purchase?


It irks that instead of the low hanging fruit of aligning Marine Air more fully with Navy air, or paring down the huge number of Generals inside a force that has 3 divisions (seems like 3 division should equal 3 Generals right?) that is being ignored in order to radically transform the Marines.

Bad vibes on all spider sense is tingling.
