Marine Corps Commandant General David Berger has suggested a role for Marine Corps forces in antisubmarine warfare (ASW). In “Resurrect the Hunter-Killer Group,” Captain Stephen Ilteris and Commander Michael Ilteris suggest embarking a destroyer squadron staff and supporting ASW helicopters on board an LPD-17 as an alternative ASW force. Marine Captain Walker Mills and Lieutenant Commanders Collin Fox, Dylan Phillips-Levine, and Trevor Phillips-Levine have outlined a concept for using Marine Corps assets, including the MV-22 and unmanned vehicles, in an ASW role from expeditionary advanced bases (EABs).
