Order of Battle: US Marines Beta

Slitherine invites players interested in Order of Battle: US Marines to head over to this page to sign up to beta test the upcoming military strategy expansion. Here's how this works:
Only few weeks have passed since the Imperial Japanese troops fought on the Chinese soil in Saturday Sun, the latest expansion of Order of Battle: Pacific. But combat on the largest of Earth's oceans is far from being over!

Contrary to the previous episodes of the series that were focused on specific campaigns of the Pacific theatre of WW2, the next expansion is paying tribute to one of the most famous branches of the US Army: the Marines! This elite military corp proved essential in the island hopping strategy employed by the Allies in this theater of operations. The new 11-scenario campaign features some of the most iconic battles where the US Marines went down in history such as Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima.

This expansion is now ready to enter the beta phase on PC! And we invite players to help us test it! By signing up for the beta, players will have a chance to be selected to be one of the lucky few who will be able experience Order of Battle: US Marines before release and help us with the final touches, ensuring a smooth release in a few weeks.

The corpsman is trained in combat medicine and is "attached" to a Marine unit after completing a shorter version of Marine boot camp. They come under the same regulations and disciplines as do Marines. They will dig foxholes and use a weapon if necessary. Marines hold their Navy Corpsman in the highest regard and will come to his aid without forethought. The corpsman can mean the difference between life and death to a Marine on the battlefield. Yes, the Marines rely upon the Navy for medical support but are still a separate service. Check out the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

To elucidate on the US Marines, the USMC is not part of the Navy but comes under the Department of the Navy as a separate branch. In doing so, the Marines are able to receive separate funding from Congress for aircraft, supply ships, tanks, beans, bullets and bandaids, etc. allowing the Marines to perform their specialized mission of amphibious warfare and being the first to fight enemies abroad.

Well, the band-aids come from the Navy seeing how they supply the Corpsmen from their Field Medical arm since the Marines do not have their own medical personnel.

I really hope, for their sake, that was a joke. Otherwise I fear for the safety of the dev team.

and both sides are very sensitive to the difference. the marines think of the army as brainless grunts and the army thinks of the marines and poor stepchildren. source: my brother's a marine.

Enlighten us foreigners what you mean. Isn't the USMC part of the US armed forces?

It's part of the armed forces but not the army: Marines are navy.

Thanks That's an odd mistake to make by a dev that makes historical wargames

By the way, it seems they noticed now and edited it
