Guam exercises provide ‘at-scale’ test of new Army, Air Force operating concepts

I've been so focused on the naval services, with apparently the Marine Corps in the lead, that I haven't kept track of what the Army and Air Force are cooking up.

One reporter pointedly asked Flynn whether the U.S. Army could rapidly deploy “in case Taiwan is invaded by China.”

“The Army is always able to rapidly deploy,” Flynn said. “And we have a range of forces out here in the Pacific —from forcible entry forces, to motorized forces to sustainment, communications, cyber, electronic warfare, intelligence, security-force assistance — all ranges of capabilities within the Army, that can move at speed and at scale, to conduct operations across the region.”


Fast moving, agile, scalable forces that are able to operate along the entire spectrum of combat...and conduct forcible entry?  They sound like the old Marine Corps!

No complaints though.  Someone's got to do it.
