Manufacturer: Fantasy Flight GamesThe United States Marine Corps is one of the few military branches to have kept its distinct identity when the Allied bloc was formed. Even though an Allied Marine Corps has been created, the USMC remains a separate branch.
During the course of the war, the Marines have learned the hard way that heavy firepower is essential to achieving victory. The ability to move quickly over terrain is also vital, and a small team carrying heavy weaponry is sometimes the best option for getting fire support into position. These USMC Heavy Weapons Teams are veterans of many campaigns, men who can be trusted to come out on top even when heavily outnumbered.
With their .50 cal machine gun, The Choppers serve primarily as defensive support for allied units. When placed in cover, or inside a building, The Choppers can work wonders! Their firepower is enough to cause any enemy soldier unit to think twice about approaching within their range of fire, and their Advanced Reactive Fire skill allows them to reliably activate out of turn in order to shoot enemy units that cross their line of sight.
The Leathernecks weapon team has traded its .50 cal. for a 120mm heavy mortar, one of the most reliable weapons you can find for harsh environments. The mortar never jams, is easy to clean, and can be quickly moved from place to place. It also delivers quite a punch! Three men with one of these weapons can hold up an entire enemy company until reinforcements arrive. Their 120mm shells can even punch through the hulls of vehicles and walkers.
Miniatures are supplied unpainted. Preparation and assembly may be required.
