An Artillery Marine alongside Bharat Battery, Battalion Landing Team tertiary Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, breaks downward an M777 Howitzer during a Fire Support Coordination Exercise (FSCEX) inwards an undisclosed place inwards Southwest Asia, Aug. 25, 2015. The FSCEX is a SPMAGTF too 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit combined arms do designed to promote interoperability betwixt the 2 Marine Corps contingency reply forces inwards the Central Command Area of Operations. BLT 3/1, 15th MEU’s position down fighting element, is embarked on the Essex Amphibious Ready Group too deployed to keep regional safety inwards the USA fifth Fleet surface area of operations.

This is interesting.

An MEU working alongside a SPMAGTF-CR?  I am beyond confused yesteryear this duality inwards thinking.

On i mitt nosotros proceed hearing nearly distributed operations, disaggregated MEUs too smaller forces becoming units of activeness (Company Landing Team).  And on the other nosotros encounter the Marine Expeditionary Brigade beingness re-emphasized, verbalise of combining MEUs on a regular footing too the necessitate to save our forcible entry capability.

You can’t convey both.
