It's a strange combination of entertaining and sanity breaking to read what normal people believe is true wrt military technology versus the actual situation.
It honestly kinda scares me though that the USMC announcement of their new policies would convince anyone who read the articles that it in any way could have been an indicator tanks were obsolete. Especially since every article I found said outright that the Marines still intend to utilize tanks and tankers from the army whenever they were necessary.
I also personally believe that the Marines are making a fundamentally good and long overdue choice here. It's unnecessary and financially untenable for us to keep using the Marines as a second army and has been for decades.
