The forward-deployment of our infantry and special operations personnel often provides an effective and relatively low-cost solution to many of our Nation’s most vexing strategic problems. When Marines are ordered into harm’s way, we ensure they deploy with the most advanced and capable equipment available. The weapon systems presented herein represent minimal investments to upgrade or field the finest lethal capabilities available. Likewise, the Marine Expeditionary Rifle Squad continues to conduct research and development in concert with U.S. Army to lighten the Marine’s individual load and increase both lethality and overall capability for distributed environment for our infantry small units.
