This small addon provides a BLUFOR faction portraying the Marine Raider Regiment, the principal combat component of the United States Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC), which is the Marine Corps’ contribution to the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). Its core capabilities are direct action, special reconnaissance and foreign internal defense. The addon comes with two separate factions of Marine Raiders in M81 Woodland and MARPAT Desert camouflage, and sans the different camouflage the Raider factions have the same weapons, equipment, vehicles and boats at their disposal.
Most Marines are armed with M4A1 Block II and Mk18 rifles in different configurations, with the Glock 17 equipped with flashlight as sidearm. Most Marines also have dual AN/PEQ-15 and flashlight configurations for their primary weapon, and all Marines carry AN/PVS-15 Night Vision Goggles.
Other specialized Marines carry the M14, M40A5, M107, M240, M249, and Mk11. Some Marines have vanilla laser designator and UAV terminal, and every Marine also have a single IR Grenade, in addition to first aid kits, flashbangs, grenades, smoke grenades, and lightsticks. There are four anti-tank operators armed with the M3 MAAWS, M136, Mk-153 SMAW and the FGM-148 Javelin respectively, and one UAV Operator is equipped with the vanilla UAV. There are also Marines with sound suppressors on their primary weapons, ideal for recon and stealth.
There are a few Arma 3 vanilla vehicles present but named after their real world equivalent, and other vehicles are taken from RHS: USAF.
Use “us_marsoc_woodland” and "us_marsoc_desert" (without quotes) to use the faction with ALiVE modules, and use the Motorized Infantry and Special Forces categories for ALiVE to draw forces from.
Required addons: Community Based Addons, Military Gear Pack, Release 0.4.3.1: RHS: United States Armed Forces.
ALiVE is not required.
To install US MARSOC Marine Raider Regiment you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page
for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
Version 1.2: After an RHS update, most soldiers would spawn with pistol in hand and rifle on back, this has been mitigated by using vanilla soldiers as "parent". I replaced the AN/PEQ-15 with the AN/PEQ-16
