US Marines and the Republican Guard


Intro Weapons Training Clothing Pay Kit
US MARINE REPUBLICAN GUARD
Marines have a specially designed uniform to give them maximum camouflage. It differs from normal uniforms by having a pixelated design.

Their combat helmets are made of Kevlar, and all Marines carry flak jackets.

Gas masks, and when appropriate, special suits for nuclear, biological and chemical attacks, are strapped to the Marine's thigh for ease of access.

Combat boots are standard issue. Other clothing would include socks, gloves and sunglasses.

Uniform and standard of clothing is highly variable and inconsistent. Republican Guard soldiers are most often seen in ceremonial gear.

In combat they would wear camouflage type clothing.
