原文:

Qualification badges will remain the same, but Marine Corps officials are still determining the new scoring system.

Under the current qualification standards, Marines fire 50 rounds, worth five points each, depending on shot placement on targets. They must earn at least 190 points for the marksman badge; at least 210 for sharpshooter; and a minimum of 220 to earn expert.

For the new ARQ system, each shot will be scored as‘destroy,’‘neutralize,’ ‘suppress’ or‘miss,’ with ‘destroy’being the only shot counting for points.

Brown expects that the changes under ARQ will result in a significant decrease in the number of Marines who qualify as expert, compared to 2019, when 65% of Marines scored expert under the ART system.

中譯:

射擊專長徽章將維持不變,惟陸戰隊官員目前仍在確認新式計分制度。

依目前的專長標準,陸戰隊員射擊50發子彈,每發可得5分,視靶上的彈著狀況而定;至少要獲得190分,才能取得射手徽章,210分則可取得神射手徽章,而取得專家射手徽章的門檻則需達220分。

至於新式年度步槍專長鑑定制度,每發子彈將會以「摧毀」、「失效」、「壓制」、「脫靶」作為評分方式,只有列為「摧毀」的彈著點才會計分。

相較於2019年有65%陸戰隊員,可在舊制年度步槍訓練下被評為專家射手,布朗預判,新制年度步槍專長鑑定的改變,將導致陸戰隊員的合格專家射手人數大幅下降。
