KEEP MOVING

In order to remain effective against new threats with new technology or weaponry, Marines must stay ahead of the curve. Whether they are deployed abroad or stationed aboard bases at home like Camp Lejeune or Camp Pendleton, Marines remain trained and knowledgeable on a wide range of equipment, weapons, vehicles and aircraft. As our Nation’s force in readiness, U.S. Marines use equipment most conducive to responding at a moment's notice. Only carrying what's needed to accomplish each mission, Marines ensure that the majority of their equipment can be loaded and transported aboard Marine Expeditionary Units. Each piece of gear is ready to be moved to shore quickly and efficiently. Watch the video to see Marines preparing to engage and win each battle.

WEAPONS & VEHICLES

Every Marine is a rifleman, but to fight at the tip of our Nation’s spear requires a mastery of many different weapons. As battlefields evolve, so too does the manner in which Marines are armed and equipped. Missions that involve urban room-clearing techniques require different weapons than those necessitating long-distance marksmanship. Watch how the Marine Corps ensures the warfighting capabilities of every Marine are enhanced with extensive weapons training. Marine tactical and combat vehicles provide Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) commanders with the protection, payload and performance to meet the demands of every mission. From sandy coastlines to mountainous hillsides, there's no place on earth inaccessible to Marines. Watch to learn about the vehicles that Marines use to maneuver across the full range of military operations.

AIRCRAFT & TOOLS

The aircraft of Marine Aviation have varied roles but an identical mission—supporting Marines on the ground. The complementary integration of fixed-wing, rotary-wing, tilt-rotor and unmanned aircraft equips Marines with multiple capabilities to engage on any terrain. Marines are first to fight because Marine aircraft get them there first. Watch more below. Constantly adapting to new challenges, Marines find ways to grow and innovate on the battlefield using a specialized Warfighting Lab. This is where new equipment is tested and new recommendations are made so Marines find themselves prepared and capable of winning any battle in the present and future.
