Régiment d'Infanterie de Marine or RIMa, are a unit from the Troupes de marine, the French marines.The Troupes de marine, formerly Troupes coloniales, are an arm of the French Army with a colonial heritage. The Troupes de marine have a dedicated overseas service role. Despite their title they have been a part of the Army since 1958. They are sometimes referred to as French marines in English-speaking media, though they are not connected to the current French naval infantry, the Fusiliers Marins and Commandos Marine.
They are the second best French standard infantry forces, but in some scenerarios, perform better than the superioir French Foreign Legion. Their LMG features better range than that of the Legion, allowing for enemy infantry to be suppressed from further. The RIMa are best suited for defensive tasks.
