I'm sure it makes sense to someone.

Spot on.

Ten bucks says there are staff wienies already making plans for a MARSOC Regimental Combat Team, with a deployable RCT HQ element. SF went through this same buffoonery in the 80s.

NSW went through a version of this as well. Used to be there were six SEAL teams with eight platoons in each team; 48 platoons total. The staff waved the magic wand and created eight SEAL teams with six platoons each; 48 platoons total. But now the HQ slices increased by 30%; for the same number of operators on the ground.

The biggest problem I see with the MARSOC move/reorganization, is it's going give other SOF staffers a "bright idea"...
