Senior Marine leaders have identified a deficiency in the ability of Marines to successfully engage moving hostile infantry personnel. As a result, the Marine Warfighting Lab conducted an experiment to identify the most effective technique to engage moving targets from Sept. 16 to 27, 2013 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va. The experiment was supported by the U.S. Army, Asymmetric Warfare Group, The Basic School and Weapons Training Battalion. (U.S. Marine Corps video Lance Cpl.
