In 2020, the Marine Corps imposed the original Armed Forces draft plan for the Corps' next decade.
The smaller, tankless, more mobile forces deployed in spring 2020 are still missing some of the details the Corps hopes to work out over the next few years, during & # 39; phase three & # 39; of the strength design.
In the three-year experimental phase, Marines will go to the field more, spend more time working with the Navy, and allow Marines to experiment more with undescribed training events against equivalent or superior equipped opponents.
"Our Marines will no longer be the only ones with UAS, advanced communications or air support during the exercises," said 1st Lt. Cameron Edinburgh, a spokesman for the 1st Marine Division, of the unit's 2021 training.
“The opponent will have those capabilities and, more importantly, will be able to take our capabilities away,” he added.
Marines can also expect more cross training in the navy.
"A notable change in FY21 is likely a reorientation towards integrated training capabilities in the Navy," said 1st Lt. Dan Linfante on the plans of the 2nd Marine Division for 2021.
"As divisional units experiment with Force Design concepts, there will inevitably be a need for greater integration with the Navy," added Linfante.
Although the 3rd Marine Division declined to discuss specific future training drills, but Major Kurt Stahl, a spokesman for the unit, said the division will expand its training with the Allied forces and the Navy as the Marine Corps shifts its focus towards China.
