The Marine Cell – PDF

Despite a long history of success, the modern rifle squad and its component fire teams must now be able to do more than has been asked of them in the past. Today’s model is not sufficiently adaptable, its roles not sufficiently distributed, control not sufficiently liberated for a battlefield of increasing complexity. This project proposes an alternative organizational system in an attempt to answer the simple question, “How should tomorrow’s fire team and squad look?” Military evolution affects everyone, from the warfighter to the pre-schooler, yet it happens largely by accident. It is time to take an informed look at the root organization of teams in armed conflict.

From the discourse:

Warfighters should not be compelled to adhere to a model that does not reflect their situation.

Mission statements do not, and should not, contain instructions.

The idea of the expendable pawn needs to vanish from military thinking.
