Novos veículos anfíbios do USMC em alta cadência de produção


Mais unidades dos fuzileiros navais dos EUA (USMC) verão seus veículos de assalto anfíbios com décadas de uso atualizados depois que um novo acordo foi fechado que levará a produção do tão aguardado veículo de combate anfíbio a uma nova fase.

O Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais concedeu à BAE Systems um contrato de quase US$ 185 milhões para a produção integral de 36 veículos anfíbios de combate. O acordo, segundo o Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais, significa que a Força agora pode construir e colocar mais ACVs “em uma cadência sustentada nos próximos anos”.

Espera-se que esse primeiro lote de produção plena, de acordo com a BAE Systems, salte para 72 veículos no início de 2021, com a opção de fabricar 80 veículos anualmente durante cinco anos.

O coronel Kirk Mullins, gerente do programa Advanced Amphibious Assault da PEO Land Systems, disse que os novos veículos terão mais capacidade de sobrevivência do que os AAVs da era do Vietnã do Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais.

Um desses AAVs se envolveu em um acidente fatal na costa da Califórnia neste verão. Oito fuzileiros navais e um marinheiro morreram com o veículo entrando rapidamente na água no caminho de volta para um navio, afundando com vários militares presos a bordo. O acidente continua sob investigação e as operações de água do AAV foram interrompidas.

“Estamos fornecendo aos fuzileiros navais um transporte de pessoal blindado moderno que oferece uma capacidade tremenda com relação à sobrevivência”, disse Mullins em um comunicado sobre o ACV que agora está substituindo esses veículos. “O ACV dá ao Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais uma plataforma operacional capaz em toda a gama de operações militares.”

O novo ACV atingiu a capacidade operacional inicial no mês passado. Um pelotão da 1ª Divisão de Fuzileiros Navais, baseado no Centro de Combate Ar-Solo do Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center em Twentynine Palms, na Califórnia, foi o primeiro na fila para receber um dos novos veículos, informou o Military.com em setembro.

O veículo de oito rodas foi projetado para transportar fuzileiros navais do navio para a costa. O contrato emitido na semana passada é para a variante destinada ao transporte de pessoal.

Três outras variantes estão em fase de planejamento, disse Barb Hamby, porta-voz do Programa dos Fuzileiros Navais, Oficial Executivo de Sistemas Terrestres.

Haverá um veículo de comando e controle, um com uma torre de 30 mm e, eventualmente, uma variante de recuperação, disse ela.

New in 2021: Marine Corps to launch new infantry training program

In 2021 the Corps will launch a new pilot program to extend the time new Marines spend at the School of Infantry to 14 weeks.

The pilot program comes as the Corps looks to develop a new way to fight as the threat of a near-peer enemy like China or Russia takes precedent over the Middle East wars of the past two decades.

“We have at least one adversary that we haven’t had in decades,” Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger said, talking about the strengthening Chinese military.

To fight the new adversary, “We need to get to that higher level because they are going to be more distributed, we are going to rely on them to make higher level decisions,” Berger said at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing in December.

The new 14-week infantry course will start by covering basic infantry concepts, then, as the course progresses, Marines will be tested on those concepts in increasingly complex contexts and environments, said Capt. Sam Stephenson, a spokesman for Marine Corps Training and Education Command.

“These proof of concept courses will be revised over the next calendar year based upon Fleet Marine Force feedback to produce Infantry Marines with the requisite skills necessary to succeed in the future Marine Infantry Battalion,” Stephenson added.

The Corps has said the pilot program may ultimately lead to even longer SOI time and could even lead the Corps to consolidate all infantry military occupational specialties into one.

US Marine Corps Unmanned JLTV Fires Naval Strike Missile for First Time

An unmanned joint light tactical vehicle (JLTV) has launched a Naval Strike Missile (NSM) off the California coast, in a demonstration carried out by the US Marine Corps.

The U.S. Marine Corps wants to be able to sink ships, and it wants that ability fast. The service is looking to field its own anti-ship missiles to defend Marines on shore from nearby enemy warships. The U.S. Marines are well known for invading islands and wresting them away from others during a conflict. They also have a lesser-known responsibility to defend them, and the Corps may be getting new ship-killing missiles to aid them in that task.

The test with the Oshkosh-built JLTV and Raytheon’s NSM was a demonstration of the Navy Marine Expeditionary Ship Interdiction System (NMESIS) Ground-Based Anti-Ship Missile (GBASM) capability. NMESIS would provide the Marine Corps with a missile capable of sea-skimming, high-g maneuverability, and the ability to engage targets from the side, rather than top-down.


NMESIS is envisioned to provide anti-ship fires from land as part of an integrated naval anti-surface warfare campaign. The Marine Corps’ GBASM solution consists of an unmanned JLTV-based mobile launch platform, called the Remotely Operated Ground Unit for Expeditionary Fires (ROGUE-Fires), and the Naval Strike Missile (NSM). The NSM is the same missile used by the navy for the over the horizon weapon system deployed on littoral combat ships.

The Naval Strike Missile (NSM) is an anti-ship and land-attack missile developed by the Norwegian company Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (KDA). The English marketing name Naval Strike Missile was adopted later.The state-of-the-art design and use of composite materials is meant to give the missile sophisticated stealth capabilities. The missile will weigh slightly more than 400 kg (880 lb) and have a range of more than 185 km (100 nm).

Here are some big changes that may be coming to the Marine Corps
Todd South

The Marine Corps’ second round of changes to how it fights shows moves in command, aviation, logistics and ground combat and shifts that might see stateside Marine reservists operating drones for active units overseas, ditching weapons companies from infantry battalions, and a host of other moves.

Those are some highlights of what Marine Corps leaders unveiled recently to media with a Force Design 2030 annual update.

The service’s first announcement in 2020 made sweeping changes that included shedding tanks from the ranks, swapping loads of conventional artillery for rockets and reducing the overall manpower from its 2020 level of 186,000 to 174,000 by 2030.

In the 2021 update, the Corps reviewed decisions leadership already has made, laid out next steps and hinted at adjustments that could have impact on forces large and small.

And whatever choices they make, it appears that leaders don’t intend to look back.


“We will succeed, and we will create irreversible momentum with our modernization efforts over the next 24 months,” Commandant Gen. David Berger wrote in the document’s introduction.

The update also may have finally answered lingering questions as to how the Marine Corps will replace its aging light armored vehicle, used primarily for manned, mobile reconnaissance.

The document specifics that Marines have “invalidated the requirement to replace existing LAV-25s with a similar armored, wheeled or tracked manned vehicle in a one-for-one ratio.”

Over the past two years, combined efforts with the Office of Naval Research and the Marine Corps Land Systems office were evaluating a vehicle replacement for the LAV. But Berger had said publicly that an armored ground vehicle might not fit into the small team, island-hopping strategy that the Corps is pursuing.

In a phone interview with various media outlets, Lt. Gen. Eric Smith, deputy commandant for Combat Development and Integration, said that the Corps is looking at capabilities, not platforms, for whatever comes after the LAV.

“What it will be replaced with is not necessarily another vehicle,” Smith said. “It could be, but the capability is to also control air and ground robotics and provide reconnaissance.”

Brig. Gen. Ben Watson, head of the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab, added that some of what comes next with an LAV replacement will come out of war gaming and experimentation, for both reconnaissance and counter-reconnaissance.

Another experiment, the Infantry Battalion Experiment 2030, will take one battalion from each active duty division to run different configurations of forces.

A change being evaluated is to shift to an “arms room” concept. That would mean getting rid of weapons company within the battalion and pushing those weapons such as 81 mm mortars and Javelin missiles to either the headquarters or rifle companies.

That would mean Marines ready to fall in on any weapon system, from machine guns to mortars or missiles, when they arrive at the battalion from the School of Infantry.

That’s partly begun, as Training and Education Command adjust the curriculum at the two SOIs, according to the document.

Major moves on the aviation side have already been announced, such as trimming the number of light, heavy and tilt-rotor helicopter squadrons and moving toward a 40 percent crewed and 60 percent uncrewed aircraft composition.

But leaders are also looking at how they can operate some of those uncrewed drones. And they’re looking to their reservists to help out.

They’re looking at two models to use reservists.

One would take a traditional approach, where 4th Marine Air Wing would operate and maintain the drones with active duty and active reservists doing the work. That would mean reservists drone pilots supporting active duty training and missions in U.S. Northern Command.


Another would mirror the Air National Guard, which would have Marine reservist drone pilots flying drones globally in support of active duty missions.

“Either model would provide our reserve pilots with the opportunity to become significant contributors to our daily operations,” according to the document.

That proposal would see mission control elements established in Alaska and Michigan or in areas with known pilot densities, such as Dallas, San Diego, Honolulu, Atlanta or Washington D.C., according to the document.

Summary of current, major changes:

Command Element


• Established the Marine Forces Space component command.

• Continued divestment of active duty law enforcement, keeping a single law enforcement battalion in the Marine Corps Reserve.

• Examined a Marine Information Group redesign to support the Marine Expeditionary Force.

Ground Combat Element

• Infantry Battalion Experiment 2030 preparations that will experiment with one battalion for each of the three active duty divisions over the next two years.

• Organic precision fires for infantry battalions, which will include loitering munitions.

• Started enhanced infantry training program.

• Preparing to shed three active duty and two reserve infantry battalions.

• Began elimination of two Assault Amphibian companies

• Started fielding Amphibious Combat Vehicle

• Decided not to replace the Light Armored Vehicle with a similar armored, wheeled or tracked manned vehicle. Examining options to convert light armored reconnaissance capabilities to a “more broadly capable Mobile Reconnaissance.”

Aviation Combat Element

• Started shedding all RQ-21 aircraft and introduced MQ-9A and VBat Unmanned Aerial Systems for additional experimentation.

• Started divestment of two Medium Tilt-Rotor Squadrons, planning to being a third in 2021; two Helicopter Marine Light Attack squadrons; 2.75 Heavy Marine Helicopter Squadrons.


Logistics Combat Element

• Finished divestment of all heavy bridging capabilities.

• Examined options for LCE capability/capacity redesign.

• Began studies and analysis for creating unmanned logistics

Sem duvida, este tipo de equipamento poderia ser colocado em ilhas do pacifico (Flashpoint dos USMC para as próximas décadas), escondido, e ser activado em qualquer ponto do tempo em caso de invasão anfíbia chinesa, por exemplo.

E eu já estou a pensar é no potencial de exportação. Por exemplo, sei de umas ilhas no meio do Atlântico que poderiam ganhar alguma protecção.  ::)

Sendo um veículo de pequeno porte (transportável em C-130 por exemplo, e em maior quantidade em navios e aviões maiores), mais ser não-tripulado, representa um multiplicador de forças enorme. Deverá ser uma questão de tempo até arranjarem uma solução semelhante para pequenos navios/lanchas não tripuladas.
