1 min read

U.S. Army and Marine Corps officials have said both service branches aim to prioritize modernization programs as part of efforts to help ground forces engage in complex security environments, DoD News reported Thursday.

Gen. John Murray, the Army’s deputy chief of staff for programs, told members of the House House Armed Services Committee’s tactical air and land forces subcommittee Wednesday the branch plans to modernize equipment to address near-term readiness goals.

Murray added that focus areas include next generation combat vehicle, long-range precision fires and soldier lethality.

Lt. Gen. Robert Walsh, commanding general for the Marine Corps Combat Development Command and deputy commandant for combat development and integration, told the subcommittee the branch plans to invest in information warfare, air defense command-and-control, mobility protection and force dynamics.
