US Marines are preparing for the so-called "frog jumps": the US began to create coastal regiments

39

For many years, the American Marines have been busy conducting combined arms operations in the numerous land theaters in which the US Army is bogged down. In an attempt to return the Marine Corps to its former functions, the command has begun to form the first unit of a new look, its official readiness is expected by the beginning of the 2022th fiscal year.


In this regard, as an experiment, the reorganization of the 3rd ILC Regiment, stationed in Hawaii, began. The new combat unit will be called MLR - Marine Littoral Regiment, "Marine Littoral Regiment". It will consist of a coastal battle group, a coastal logistics battalion, and a coastal anti-aircraft battalion. The number of the regiment will be 1,8-2 thousand people. instead of the current 3,4 thousand

That is, MLR is roughly an analogue of battalion tactical groups widely used in the ground forces on a temporary basis. However, the MLR will be a permanent unit, support and reinforcement will be firmly assigned to the strike units of the coastal regiment.

According to USNI News, the military expects that in this form the MLR will be able to effectively fight for islands in the Indo-Pacific region, making "frog jumps" between them. This term means the rapid movement of amphibious assault forces across the numerous islands of the Pacific, observed during WW2 on both sides.

According to the ILC, within the framework of the concept of "scattered war" to capture the Pacific Ocean, not large forces of massive invasion are needed, but small maneuvering units, the creation of which should be completed by 2030.

We are focused on the Pacific Ocean. And this is where you will see our first Coastal Marine Regiment

      The only thing is that now the United States is not considering Japan as an adversary, but another Asian country ...

          Question - for whom the disputed territory ("dispute six"- Vietnam, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei)?

          USA to Spratili, which side? What do the Yankees generally need in this part of the oceans?

            A great term that you can fit anything you want. A sort of naval analogue of the term "providing a no-fly zone" (under the brand name of which, as you know, now you can even deliver air strikes and invade another state).

      This can be butted with a reinforced MSB (now fashionably called btgr).
      As I understand it, the Yankees are slipping into small group tactics over a wide stretch of coastline. This is possible with supremacy in the air and at sea (since they are going to jump on the islands). Accordingly, DESO with the addition of AUG (operation "Cottage" in miniature).
      With other initial numbers, the number of marines will need to be multiplied by 3-4 (the landed rtgr will smoothly turn into a battalion).

        They will not be able to fight the enhanced SMB, but they are not created for this either. This is no longer an amphibious force, their task is to forestall the Chinese in capturing the islands, which are key for controlling sea communications, to dig in there and deploy anti-ship missile systems.

        If they do, they will fight with these forces, then against some company tactical group defending a small bulk island, no more.

          Why read the "rehash" of the general concept of using the avant-garde of the ILC with the author's conjectures?
          Self-sufficient (for the nth period of the task) small groups (by forces up to MSB roughly) have been run in (in real databases) - a long time ago.
          The Yankees did not discover America.
          Smells like "air cavalry" (with saturation with weapons and mcr, which are finite).
          Disembarkation on a reef / islet ennobled with yellow, with a company of Chinese trampled into the ground and bazaing on it - this is a mass grave with precise geographic coordinates. wink

        And in fact, the sun degrades just like all dill. And this is obvious to everyone. Watch the latest movie from Netflix "Death Zone". And then you will understand what kind of future the statesmen see for you. Maybe you will think. wink

      So if a war starts, then everyone will forget about the size of the pre-war claims. The islands will be viewed not in terms of nationality, but in strategic terms - as a barrier to the US Navy or as a barrier limiting the Chinese Navy.
      So both sides will fight for the entire chain, regardless of who was there for what before the war. The desired ownership of the islands will be determined not by diplomats, but by the military.

    People. Don't underestimate the danger to us. Don't forget about the South Kurils. The Yapas, encouraged by the Americans, may well decide on an adventure, and they will support them in time. So the new units will come in handy. If it works out, the states are in the black, since Japan is not an independent state. And if not, Japan will get all the big shots. In such a case, Japan will be the main enemy, which gives the states the opportunity to "get off the topic" if things do not go as planned.

      The danger in the Far East is palpable. And the Japanese (in theory) may decide to take this step.
      But the US won't get involved. Since nuclear war cannot be avoided.

    The whole question is about the adequacy of the American elites. And given their current semi-rash state, this issue is very relevant.
    First: As a result of their historical experience, many Americans believe that if the war is being waged by other countries, and the Americans are like "only helping the allies," then the war zone will not extend to them either.
    Second: Do not underestimate the arrogance and self-confidence of the US ruling elites. Many are so accustomed to impunity that they sincerely believe that no one will dare to retaliate against US territory and the matter, as usual, will be resolved by a local conflict "somewhere far away."
