Will the Marines take on submarine-hunting?
The Marine Corps wants in on the submarine-hunting game, according to Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger, including the role of helping the Navy identify, track and even sink submarines.
In Berger’s vision, the Corps will deploy on bases in the Atlantic’s North Sea, the Arctic Ocean’s Norwegian Sea and the northern Pacific’s Bering Sea to bottleneck Russian submarines ― while similar bases in the South China Sea will prevent Chinese submarines from leaving territorial waters.
“The undersea fight will be so critical in the High North and in the western Pacific that the Marine Corps must be part of it,” Berger wrote in an U.S. Naval Institute article.
