    Weapons

    Every Marine is a rifleman, but to fight at the tip of our nation's spear requires a mastery of many different weapons. As battlefields evolve, so too does the manner in which Marines are armed and equipped. Missions that involve urban room-clearing techniques require different weapons than those necessitating long-distance marksmanship. For this reason, the Marine Corps ensures the warfighting capabilities of every Marine are enhanced with extensive weapons training.

    Aircraft

    The aircraft of Marine Aviation have varied roles but an identical mission—supporting Marines on the ground. The complementary integration of fixed-wing, rotary-wing, tilt-rotor and unmanned aircraft equips Marines with multiple capabilities to engage on any terrain on earth. Marines are first to fight because Marine aircraft get them there first. Marines are at the tip of the spear because Marine aircraft cover them at the forward edge of battle.
