Yes and no. The designated marksman, as I understand it, doesn't absolutely need a spotter the way a true sniper does. That being said, if possible you should have a "spotter" because you try not to have one guy in a position, and adding the the versatility of adding a M203 and the laser designator to the package is great. So why the M-4? Becuase the damn thing is what is there- the M-4 is easier to get in and out of vehicles, so goes the theory, so we are fielding more and more of them despite their short comings.

Still, if you give a Vermont trooper, almost all of whom are hunters and woodchucks, anything vaguely fitting the description of "rifle" he hit the target.
