    Created to give the wider Royal Marines community a platform to voice innovative ideas that may be missed otherwise. The ultimate aim is to improve the Corps to achieve its full potential. We recognise that ideas can come from anywhere. We will share topical articles to stimulate ideas but would also invite any followers to submit short essays to be published anonymously on this site. A great opportunity to voice your ideas and thoughts to the people that want to hear….

    Oh dear god there is a twitter.

    Suggestion number 1; get rid of twitter for the entire Royal Marines.

    And why can’t I opt to turn off the non essential cookies?

    Why is the user interface and layout horrendous?

    "
    The need is for anti-fragile people: small groups of determined people, capable and willing to kill people and destroy things.

    The core values of the Royal Marines make them better suited to these challenges than most other formations in the British military machine. The Corps cannot be subordinated to simply provide the Royal Navy with force protection. A new vision is needed that puts the marines deliberately at the front edge of naval force design and employment: ships, submarines, aircraft, carriers, and littoral strike ships will need to adapt to roles as supporting units – not supported ones. It is not the capital ships that form the centrepiece of useful and winning force design: it is the people. In reality, it always has been.

    *Note: The myrmidons were the chosen men of Achilles guard. Today, their popular description is as followers of a powerful person, typically one who is unscrupulous or carries out orders unquestioningly. But Homer’s Iliad describes them as ferocious warriors of remarkable ingenuity whose appearance ‘as mindless ants’ belied their true abilities in combat."

    Ah twitter.

    How cringy and embarrassing. And not to mention a load of crap. Let’s show case the brand new technology with some fat REMF bint, no doubt an officer too. That sent of Armour doesn’t need even fit her correctly.

    I remember arguing with some civvie during the trials for Virtus, he just couldn’t grasp how someone couldn’t like all this extra technology BS.
    Give me that set and I’ll have it broken in 13 minutes.

    I’d like to take a second to be serious, what’s with the wrist things? I chatted to a scientist boffin type person, and half the reason for ditching the padding out the forearms of the UBACs was for regulating heat and body temperature through your forearms, the padding would hamper this, so why have they decided to go for some fetish bondage wristlets?

    All this technology and bright ideas, and when it all inevitably fails, they won’t have the skills to crack on.
