The Riflemen are the main infantry of the United States.
The Riflemen employs the M16A2 service rifle, the LAW (Light Anti-Tank Weapon) and the M60 GPMG. Riflemen are the primary scouts, assault troops, and close combat forces available to the MAGTF.
Riflemen maintain a cheap cost, high rate of fire, and high availibility for their cost, their transports are mediocre. Their high rate of fire helps them a lot in anti-infantry and anti-heli roles, but they are slightly lacking in AT capability compared to the Pact's basic infantry forces.
In 1808, the United States Army created its first Rifle Regiment. During the War of 1812 three more Rifle Regiments were raised but disbanded after the war. The Rifle Regiment was disbanded in 1821. During the Civil War, Sharpshooter regiments were raised in the North with several companies being raised by individual states for their own regiments.
