May 26, 2018

The reinforced rifle platoon traditionally had 14 members.  While other reasons are provided in the article/video, I am convinced that the resizing of the Marine Squad is a result of the AAV-7 SU having 12 IED Blast Protective Seats in the passenger compartment. and as a result of the ACV 1.1 crew compartment sizing.
