The article focuses on the load determination and uniform modification or standardization of light infantry soldiers. Modifications for the load and uniform are discussed in consideration of counterinsurgency operations (COIN) and the weight a soldier can carry, which is dependent on his weight, the climate and the terrain. Tactics for supplying infantry troops in various situations are discussed along with the constraints that could be encountered by the forward support company (FSC).
