Marines eye expansion of light armor units.
Marines in Iraq are finding new ways to employ the light armored vehicles, explains Col. John J. Bryant, LAV program manager. Commanders have asked for additional LAV companies, at least one per battalion, he adds. As to how the Corps will come up with additional vehicles, Bryant says it remains an open question. "We don't know what the strategy is yet." He notes that the current Marine Corps budget has no dollars to buy any new LAVs.
