We have some M16A2, should they be replaced with the MI16A4 or M4s
The answer would be to speak to the Forcestructure section of the command. If the manning/authorization document calls for a change in equipment, then the approval to move ahead is there. If not, the command will use the weapons assigned and supported. There is a specific Army policy associated with requesting changes to the equipment tables. AR 700-127 outlines the process and local policy/command policy will augment the process.
