US Marine Corps will lose all heavy armored vehicles

US Marine Corps will lose all heavy armored vehicles

The U.S. Department of Defense intends to conduct a massive reform of the Marine Corps. According to the Pentagon, the reform will take about 10 years, during which the ILC will lose heavy equipment and almost all artillery. It is reported by The Drive.


According to the plans of the American military department, the number of US ILCs will be reduced by about 20 thousand people, thereby reaching the final figure of 170 thousand marines. The reduction will cover all seven tank units, as well as ships intended for transportation tanks. Instead of heavy armored vehicles, LAV-25 wheeled armored personnel carriers and ACV amphibious combat vehicles will be introduced, which will replace tracked landing vehicles (AAV) in the KMP.

The artillery batteries of 155 mm howitzers also fall under the reduction. Instead of the 21 batteries currently in service with the Marines, only 5 will remain at the end of the reform. aviation the total number of aircraft and helicopters will be reduced. Although the number of fighter squadrons will remain the same - 18, but instead of 16 aircraft they will consist of 10. But the number of UAV squadrons will increase from 3 to 6.

At the same time, the number of ground-based missile and artillery units and anti-tank missile units will triple from 7 to 21. In particular, we are talking about M142 MLRS (HIMARS) systems, which are planned to be used for launching anti-ship missiles and short-range quasiballistic missiles. Planned deployment of ground launchers for cruise missiles Tomahawk.

As the commander of the Marine Corps, General David Berger, said in the future, the U.S. ILC does not expect to conduct large-scale military operations against serious opponents. In the current configuration, the Marine Corps has exhausted its capabilities and cannot resist Russia and China, so in the future the emphasis will be on compact, mobile troops that do not have heavy weapons.

        There will be bespectacled batans on gaming chairs to sit and drive a tank for a thousand miles.
        And what, he came to the service from the morning, until the evening he shot a bunch of barmaley from the tank and went home.
        Not a service - a dream!

      At its core, the same Octopus is a light tank and it can swim.
      in the future, the United States ILC does not expect large-scale military operations against serious opponents.

      It is precisely that a serious war (in the non-nuclear version) with a serious enemy of the United States will not be financially or technically pulled.
      And for me, the United States is now doing with the Marine Corps what Khrushchev once did with our ART.

      You focused on the wrong text, because the main point is this:
      in future emphasis will be placed on compact, mobile troops that do not have heavy weapons.

      If you translate this from the language of professionals, you can draw two conclusions:
      1. the elimination of heavy weapons will dramatically increase the mobility of the marine corps, which could be used more often by aviation than the fleet to arrive at their destination.
      2. The US military understood from the Syrian events the importance of Russian MTRs, and perhaps decided to follow the same path, focusing primarily on the mobility of combat units.
      The most unpleasant thing for us is that the Americans understood the importance of mobility in conducting short-term military operations, and some of our "theorists" with foam at the mouth prove that tank battalions are needed in the airborne forces. As the saying goes, “There are no vices in his own country,” although Colonel V.V. Kvachkov predicted this trend twenty years ago and became a theorist in creating the MTR in the Russian army, but no one wanted to listen to him then.

        In fact, Russian MTRs were formed after a detailed acquaintance with the structure and activities of the US MTR.
        The same can be said of PMCs.

          You just did not understand that the same name does not mean that structurally these forces resemble each other. In fact, our MTRs, unlike the American ones, are more compact, they are easier to manage, and they are imprisoned for some foreign operations that the GRU GS will plan, as I understand it.
          And the number of our MTRs can not be compared with the number of US MTRs -
          The number of personnel and soldiers subordinate to the Main Directorate of Special Operations Forces of the United States is about 60 thousand people,

          If we proceed from the very idea of ​​creating MTRs, then, as I understand it, some parts of the special forces decided to withdraw from the district subordination and make them parts of central subordination, but the essence of their preparation is not much different from the Soviet brigades of special operations.

              You can list the differences between the tasks of the US and Russian MTR

              It is not a matter of tasks, but of what forces to use to solve them. American MTR even provides for the presence of such structures in different types of US armed forces, and our MTRs themselves are a structure of the armed forces that are not included in other types and types of armed forces:
              Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation - a structural unit of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the formation of which began in 2009 during the large-scale reform of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation

              And here is the answer to what basis our MTRs are created:
              At the beginning of 2012, on the initiative of the Chief of the General Staff N.E. Makarov, the Special Operations Department was deployed to the Special Operations Forces Command (KSSO), with subsequent plans to increase MTR to nine special forces brigades and parallel increase in the number of district special subordination brigades

              Do you know how the staff of the Special Forces Brigade differs from the states of the Airborne Division or Marine Regiment?

Do you have little experience in the fighting of the two brigades in Afghanistan, or were you still unable to comprehend something to learn from the Americans?

And there will be many international stinks in case of failures.

                        In the districts there were no battalions of special forces of district subordination, at least in Soviet times and later, so do not fantasize. If there were separate Squads, they were called squads, not battalions.

        And the number of our MTRs can not be compared with the number of US MTRs

        Can you list the differences between the tasks of the US and Russian MTR?

    This is a reallocation of resources. The US Army needs urgent rearmament. Moreover, in everything at once - they lagged behind China and Russia in the rearmament of their army. And it costs a lot of money. In addition, their ILC is still not capable of fighting the army of the Russian Federation and China.
    The United States began to curtail its military presence in many parts of the world, primarily in Africa and Afghanistan, they would like (Trump) but so far they cannot leave Syria and Iraq ... But in Europe there is a pumping of forces and means ...
    This is a regrouping.

    Nope. They announced that from now on they will only fight with people with disabilities, dystrophics and other wretched people who are not able to give change (i.e. in the face).
    The right way paced comrades. So, you see, the next crisis in the collection with a new infection will cross them into pacifists.

    ... as the commander of the Marine Corps General David Berger stated, in the future, the U.S. ILC does not expect to conduct large-scale military operations against serious opponents.

    And remind us, David, when the last time the U.S. ILC carried out large-scale military operations against a serious adversary one on one?!
    Let me remind you - never! yes

              The United States has never fought a serious adversary, and if it fought with someone, it was seriously inferior to them, and even then in a crowd with a “coalition”.

    All seven tank units, as well as ships intended for tank transportation, will fall under the reduction. Instead of heavy armored vehicles, LAV-25 wheeled armored personnel carriers and ACV amphibious combat vehicles will be introduced, which will replace tracked landing vehicles (AAV) in the KMP.
    The artillery batteries of 155 mm howitzers also fall under the reduction. Instead of the 21 batteries currently in service with the Marines, only 5 will remain at the end of the reform.

    And why should the ILC “contain” China and the Russian Federation?
    These are quick reaction forces. In essence, an expeditionary army that is designed to operate on foreign territory. And they combine ALL the branches of the army.
    For its own territory there is a National Guard.

    There are no free tanks left for sale, because no one is making new ones?
    Planned deployment of ground launchers for cruise missiles Tomahawk.

    Figase! Despite the fact that
    in the future, emphasis will be placed on compact, mobile troops

    Are they axes on the hump there, or in extreme cases, will they drag on cars? Pitching blacks, freed from the reduction of tanks, fit in?

    That's good. So they won’t come out in real for a long time. Let them fight there and save their asses from a virtual enemy. There you can even reboot if you can’t do it. In real life you have to calculate your own skins. And it hurts.

    The ILC is an expeditionary corps or rather colonial, and the words infantry (infantry) are not there, marine is more of a delivery method to overseas territories, a tribute to tradition, like armored cavalry units where there is not a single horse. Unlike traditional marine corps of other countries, the same England or Russia, completely different combat missions and assignment.

    The decision is wrong. Without tanks and self-propelled guns, any naval landing will be
    destroyed. Moreover, the marines already have tank landing ships and amphibians.
    They will be burned on some landing operation and they will return everything.
