This is the May 17, 2017 hearing titled "United States Military Small Arms Requirements" held before the Senate Subcommittee on Airland. From the opening statement of Tom Cotton: "For years, our rivals have been developing new tactics, new small arms, and new body armor, all while we have been largely asleep at the switch. [...] So we need to take a closer look at what the individual soldier is working with--the standard-issue rifle for both Army and Marine infantry, the M4 carbine, which is a modified version of the Vietnam-era M16." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John M. Bednarek and Robert H. Scales Jr.
