The United States Marine is the standard infantry unit of the U.S. Army. Well trained and well armed, the Marine is good at assaulting and defending in buildings.[2]

OverviewEdit

Marines are fast, and a full squad can be a threat to low-flying helicopters. You can ask a Marine to crawl, hide, ambush, and capture prisoners of war.

Marines can also be upgraded with M203 grenade launchers (from the Barracks in Direct Action; for each individual Marine in High Treason), which gives them a bonus when fighting clustered infantry, light armor, and helicopters.

BackgroundEdit

Just say the word!
- U.S. Marine

The United States Marine Corps (USMC) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for providing power projection from the sea, using the mobility of the United States Navy to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces. It is one of seven uniformed services of the United States. The Marine Corps is a component of the United States Department of the Navy often working closely with naval forces for training, transportation, and logistics; however, the Marine Corps is a separate branch.

Captain Samuel Nicholas formed two battalions of Continental Marines on 10 November 1775 in Philadelphia as naval infantry. Since then, the mission of the Marine Corps has evolved with changing military doctrine and American foreign policy. The Marine Corps has served in every American armed conflict and attained prominence in the 20th century when its theories and practices of amphibious warfare proved prescient and ultimately formed the cornerstone of the Pacific campaign of World War II.

By the mid-20th century, the Marine Corps had become the dominant theorist and practitioner of amphibious warfare. Its ability to rapidly respond on short notice to expeditionary crises gives it a strong role in the implementation and execution of American foreign policy.

AbilitiesEdit

DA Portrait Capture Capture
Selected unit(s) will capture all enemy POWs in the target location designated on the map.
DA Portrait Stances Infantry Crawl Crawl
Selected unit will change to crawl stance. A crawling soldier is much harder to detect for enemy units, but reduces speed. Ability can only be used if the infantry is in standing stance.
DA Portrait Stances Infantry StandUp Stand up
Selected unit will change to standing stance. A standing soldier has increased speed, but can be easily detected and picked off by enemy units. Ability can only be used if the infantry is in crawling stance.
DA Portrait Ambush Ambush
Selected unit(s) will hide behind cover, such as trees or civilian vehicles, to do more damage.

UpgradesEdit

DA Portrait USMarine M203 M203 grenade launcher
The U.S. Marine can launch a grenade, every four shoots, which causes 60 HE of damage in a radius of 3. Can be researched from the Barracks in Direct Action[2]; from each individual Marine in High Treason[1].
