Marines

From Colonial Marines Wiki

You awake from cryostasis in your Standard Military CS Uniform, yawning as you stretch out the rigidness that can come from staying in one position for so long. You look around, noticing you’re aboard the faithful vessel with its dreary grey walls, the USS Almayer. You shake your head briefly and look around, watching as the other marines follow the same routine and march outside the sleeping quarters. Following your fellow comrades to the preparation rooms to gear up and head to briefing, you ponder what kind of grunt work they’re shoving you into you to this time…

The people of the United States Colonial Marines Falling Falcons Battalion are our protagonist. These are the guys you call in to deal with the problems you have, maybe an army of rivals of the United Americas, maybe a group of colonial rebels, or maybe even worse.


So you’ve signed up for the Marines, eh? Well, lucky for you, we’re able to give the just about every single smudge of information that you should’ve learned in your basic training courses! Don’t worry, we all (apparently) forget sometimes! Just use this handy dandy guide below and you’ll be able to know all the dumb sh*t you should’ve known already!
