Neshaten Marine

Marines are combat infantry, serving aboard ship, stations, and ground bases. They are used to repeal boarders or to fight enemy infantry. They are the Kingdom of Neshaten main fighting force.

The job of a marine is to always be on alert in case of attack or boarding, thus onboard ships they are tasked with patroling the ships various compartments, rooms, and corridors and inspecting maintenance conduits. There are naturally areas of a ship or a station where they are not permitted, and only soldiers of a high rank can patrol those areas.

The marines are open to both Shukaren and Myleke, but there is a slight difference between weapon usage. Shukaren can use hand-held weaponry just fine, on the other hand My'leke must use weapon modules which are essentially hand-held firearms redesigned as a module that fits onto their backs.

There are several types of marines, including regular marines, heavy marines, and marine snipers but also sub-occupations that a soldier can choose to train into that extends their training time but often gives them very useful skills. What a marine decides to be is entirely up to them, a marine can focus on one area of training, or can broaden their horizons by focusing on all three.

In the year of EE002, something changed. A consensus by the military showed that the majority of military starships had a high number of marines who, because of their training, were incapable of really doing anything other than handling enemy boarders, boring enemy ships, or taking part in ground operations. This meant that during regular ship to ship combat, a marine was practically useless and incapable of doing much of anything except waiting for the possibility of the ship being boarded.

That changed when the Neshaten's military high command decided upon several new training regimes for their marines; including expanding upon their role so that they would be of more use in space and on the ground. In addition to the regular training they receive, they are also trained in Damage Control, Medical Assistance, and ship to ship warfare; what this means is that marines are now trained on how to repair damage, how to be of use in the medical environment such as assisting a Miester Healer, and also operating a ships turrets - thus shoring up some of the responsibility away from the aviators.

Sub-Occupations

Sub-occupations are occupations that soldiers can train into after they've completed their main training. All skills in the primary occupation carry over into the sub-occupation.

Mechanised Marine

Mechanised Marine are soldiers whom are trained to use vehicles, such as tanks and IFV's. They are trained to utilize cannons, and artillery emplacements along with mounted machine guns. They typically accompany regular infantry or marines whom are trained to work with mechanized marines.

Demo Marines

A demolition's marine is a soldier who is trained to work with explosives, whether it's regular mines, or large bombs that can be used to level entire city blocks.

Skill Reason
Demolitions In order to know how to use demolitions, a soldier has to be trained.

Combat Medics

A combat medic is either a marine who is crossed trained as a healer or a healer who has cross-trained as a marine. Combat Medics know their way around the medical side of things while also capable of defending themselves from enemy combatants, this means that a combat medic doesn't really need to be escorted as they typically know how to fight.

Most Healers who go on missions with a combat element are usually considered combat medics after their first mission.

Combat Medics possess the same skill traits as a regular healer does.
