Marines Testing Tactics for Fight Against China, Seize Airfield and Small Island
The United States Marines Corps have been testing what they call their future fighting concept.
This past week, Marines with the 31st MEU seized an airfield and a small island as part of testing this concept.
This fighting concept is known as EABO (Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations), with its purpose being the help Marines stay alive if we were ever to be involved with a high-end fight with China. This involves spreading Marines sparsely across the Pacific Ocean.
It is still in its early stages, seeing as it still awaits the signature of Chief of Naval Operations.
