The Federation Marine Corps is a small infantry force assigned to defend Fleet ships and installations. They carry the same standard issue weapons as the Mobile Infantry, and maintain the same Rank structure, however unlike the M.I. the Marine Corps is under the command of Fleet.

History Edit

Starship Troopers 3: MarauderEdit

For Sky Marshal Omar Anoke's visit to a Federal base on Roku San, Marines were assigned to guarding him. When landed at Roku San, the Sky Marshal inspected the base with an M.I escort whilst his Marine guards stayed with the Admiral's Boat. During this time, however, the base's defenses failed, flooding it with Arachnid Warrior Bugs, and Anoke's Marine guards went out in search for the Sky Marshal, eventually finding him along with General Dix Hauser. Anoke was then escorted safely from the planet to the Geronimo.

When the Geronimo was later hit by bug plasma Captain Lola Beck insists the Sky Marshal abandon ship and ordered the Marines to meet up with an escort the Sky Marshal to the Admiral's Boat. The Marines, however, were unable to reach the Sky Marshal and abandoned ship on the Admirals Boat, whereas the Sky Marshal used an escape pod.

The Marines aboard the Admirals Boat were all suffocated on route to OM-1 due to an air leak. Their bodies and the Admiral's Boat were later found by the survivors of the Geronimo. Starship Troopers 3: Marauder
