Marine Corps says it’s going to start hunting submarines

“USMC Commandant General David Berger explained to the US Naval Institute’s magazine, Proceedings, how aerial drone-equipped Marines could effectively hunt down submarines and other vessels as they carry out Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations.

“As Chinese and Russian undersea warfare capabilities continue to improve, logistics and other supporting operations for US ASW forces will grow in importance,” Berger wrote in Proceedings. “Integrating cross-domain ASW [anti-submarine warfare] operations into the Marine Corps’ expeditionary advanced base operations (EABO) concept could enable the joint force to sustain or widen its advantage in ASW.”

It should be noted that China and Russia have upped their submarine game, and are increasingly more active when it comes to the “silent services” of their respective countries.”
