What type of equipment are the marines using up to date?
Why do you want to know?
No its not up to date, however they are good soldiers within what they have.
If you mean the Royal Marines then a rational bit! Unlike our American counterparts we tend to get the new paraphernalia first.
The range is vast from SA80’s to M4 Carbines; from hi tech sit comms gear to the latest in Night Vision.
And as expected the most important of all, the adjectives singing, all dancing Gaffa Tape!! The Corps is held together by it, we couldn’t function lacking it!! Source(s): 11 Years in the Royal Marines
none of their equipment is up to date!
they other get second hand stuff.
Oooooh, yes! they use the hand held GPS which give miles in error, specially in SHAT AL-ARAB!! Source(s): The 15 brits sailors event near Iran!!
It depends, we just got brand new packs to replace the molle gear, the cammies we get presently keep ripping in the crotch, I haven't see it yet but they are supposed to coming up with some alien jackets for the colder months vs. the gore tex tops we now hold. I've only seen EOD rolling around surrounded by the cougars and buffalos, the 7 tons are uparmored but you really have to trust your driver and there's other stuff too, but you'll have enlist for that because I don't close to putting TMI on the web.
lol correct question...Being a former Marine 0311 we get the cheap things out of adjectives the branches! But Marines always do the most with little. For example, You dont see profusely of Marines with M-4 like the army. We a short time ago received the m16 A4 not too long ago aswell as ACOGS. Most marines buy their own gear instead of using issued gear.
As far as what. They use a lot of different equipment, from fax machines to swordfighter jets. Source(s): USMC 1983-1989
The USMC uses as it always have the leftovers from the other services. It also uses them somewhat better than they were designed to operate.
