The United States Marines is a shock infantry unit that is available in Wargame: AirLand Battle. In the game they are only available for Marine type decks, while they wield similar weapons to their riflemen cousins, they are more accurate with their assault rifles and machine guns.

HistoryEdit

The United States Marine Corps (U.S.M.C.) were first formed in 1775 as the Continental Marines, a branch of the Department of the Navy. The Marine Corps has since then grown and evolved into a major fighting force, gaining prominence for its theories and practices of amphibious warfare in the 20th century. The Marine Corps have been involved in most of America's wars throughout history.

OverviewEdit

AirLand BattleEdit

Red DragonEdit

Like most US infantry, the US Marines are a general-purpose infantry which specializes in amphibious assaults. They are well rounded, but a master of none as most US infantry are, they also rely on weapon fire rate over stopping power. On their own they can successfully fight most enemies but have great difficulty with SF squads like Spetsnaz unless they greatly outnumber them. However, when paired up with the LVTP-7A1 for support this combo can prove deadly to a vast majority of threats. Have Marines up front dealing damage and the LVTP behind supporting with grenade launchers and .50 cal fire. This combo can typically take down light attack helicopters, APCs, light tanks, and other threats. Still, be aware of enemy ATGMs or heavier tanks.
