    "For example, in its recommendations, the review calls for reestablishing the U.S. 2nd Fleet with an eye toward near-peer competition in the Atlantic ..."

    Navy Reestablishes U.S. 2nd Fleet to Face Russian Threat; Plan Calls for 250 Person Command in Norfolk https://news.usni.org/2018/05/04/na...-plan-calls-for-250-person-command-in-norfolk

    but just one sentence for now:

    "While the command now exists on paper, the service still needs to work through specifics such as the rank of the commander and how the command and control relationships will work with the joint combatant commands."

    by the way disinterest in
    US Military News, Reports, Data, etc.
    is complete, I guess it's good for you LOL

    With an eye on Russia, U.S. Navy re-establishing its Second Fleet

    [​IMG]

    "The United States Navy is re-establishing its Second Fleet, responsible for the northern Atlantic Ocean, nearly seven years after it was disbanded as the Pentagon puts countering Russia at the heart of its military strategy.

    "Our National Defense Strategy makes clear that we're back in an era of great power competition as the security environment continues to grow more challenging and complex," Chief of U.S. Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson said in a statement on Friday."

    Green Highlights by Me.
    Hold Up wait a sec.... There is something Wrong... well 2 things wrong here.
    1. The M38 is not a Accuratized version of the M27. It's an M27 with a Variable power Scope an a dated one at that. That's it they changed the scope and called it M38.
    2. Wait What? With M110 in a Army Squad this makes some sense as you have a visibly different rifle. but M27 And M4 both have the same stock, similar receivers and Some M4 rail systems and builds can make a very similar rifle, To the Point where you would need to be very very close to see the difference. M27 is longer, but most of the differences are internal.
    One of these Marines has a M27 the other a M4, I made this image small intentionally so which is which? with the exception of one detail the Front sight I bet most won't know at a glance.

    M27 M4
    And If the Marines are really super worried about there rifles standing out perhaps having them painted Black might be counter productive?

    Note MRZR also comes in 4 seat versions and can be carried internally by V22.
