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.
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.
The US Marines are a general-purpose infantry which specializes in amphibious assaults. Like all 15 men team, they are cost-inefficient, especially since they are armed with one of the worst MG in-game : The M60. They LAW has a AP below 16 which means it will take two hit to disable anything with more than 2 armor. They are usually taken for the transport, LVTP-7A1, but in that case SMAW is a better choice for their lower price and better LAW, or US Marines '90, since they carry a better LAW and MG.
