Marines Get Glimpse at Russian Tactics During Middle East Deployment | Military.com

Thousands of Marines carrying out crisis-response missions in the Middle East are getting a better look at what war with a potential adversary such as Russia might look like.

Members of Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-Crisis Response-Central Command are operating across swaths of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. And some of the tactics and equipment they’re encountering could shape the way U.S. forces train for future fights.
