    • New Unit: Marines

      The 1st Marine Division was activated aboard the USS Texas on 1 February 1941 In May 1941, the 1st MARDIV relocated to Quantico, Virginia and Parris Island, South Carolina and in April 1942, the division began deploying to Samoa and Wellington, New Zealand. The division's units were scattered over the Pacific with the support elements and the 1st Marine Regiment transported en route to New Zealand on three ships, the USATsEricsson, Barnett and Elliott from Naval Reserve Air Base Oakland to New Zealand, and later were landed on the island of Guadalcanal, part of the Solomon Islands, on 7 August 1942.

      What I propose:

      Use it like a real landing infantry unit, changing the acquired models. With a different Ship for the regular troops, and a variant for them, (being automatically embarked); having abilities when they are at sea, and improving his combat stadistics when they are taking a coastal province. Decreasing also, the time that you need to disembark on land.

      They would be put on the secret technology, and they would have 3 levels like the paratroops. And they would unlocked when you research the lvl 3 infantry. Having the same stadistics except when they embark.

      LvL (X) (embarked): Fighting 0.5 0.2 -- 0.5 0.1
      Defending 0.7 0.3 1.0 0.5 0.1

      terrain (sea) -- armored class(ship)--Speed(25km/h)

      The most useless condition is the disembark part, because take the seaside in 50% of the time.

    • Idea has a good base, but your percepcion of marines is useless in land combat, so imagine invading whole USA, yes it would be good for landing in coastline states but after some time it loses compatibility to tanks and regular infantry. If your response is to produce not-too-much of these units, my answer is that its not worth the research and the time to make only 3-4 of these units.
