“We are undergoing probably the largest modernization in the infantry squad in the last 25 years,” said Lt. Col. Tim Hough, program manager for infantry weapons at Marine Corps Systems Command’s ground combat element systems division.

Everything from electro-optics to the weapons themselves are getting revamped, he said during a panel discussion at the National Defense Industrial Association’s annual Armament Systems Forum last June in Fredericksburg, Va.

The overhaul will significantly change how the Marine Corps fights and maneuvers on the battlefield, as well as increase the lethality of infantrymen, he added.
