Any Military, no matter how well automated still needs personnel and troops. These are Marines from the ESC Security Forces.
About this creation
These two pictures show the new Medical Supplies that I made for use with my soldiers and Medics. They all use BA Flashbangs.
Being that the ESC Marines are a Security Force, they have more experience than just military combat. Seen here is an ESC Marine equipped to deal with riots. The shield is a clear ballistics riot shield, for the protection of the Marine. He's carrying a stun baton, which acts like a low voltage taser, to give rioters something to think about if they get too rowdy. Not seen here, however, is the Personal Defense Weapon, which will be a BA PDW once they are released. The pdw will fire rubber rounds that split to form an x upon leaving the barrel, stunning a target far more effectively than just rubber bullets.
A two man special team for eliminating Heavy armor like tanks and mecha. The Specialist carries a launcher similar to a Javelin launcher, while his spotter carries the comm equipment and loads after shots.
A two man special team for eliminating troops on the battlefield at great distances. The Sniper carries a Lagrange sniper rifle, with a range of over two miles, while his spotter carries the comm equipment and feeds the sniper relevant data concerning his target.
This team is a combat engineer team. Their function is do battlefield repairs to vehicles, meacha and structures. Normally only equipped with a pistol, these troops can fight with most basic weapons.
These two soldiers are specially trained in most forms of combat in zero g. Their armor is specially designed for maximum protection and flexibility. In addition, the armor has built in maneuvering thrusters for movement. EVA exposure limit is 6 hours.
Awesome troops. BrickArms is coming out with a Personal Defense Weapon?

Hey RabidGoldfish i know you from Alpha Company Forums, I am Mike Kly and i am mentioned as Ssgt Carter in Running the Gauntlet! I was wondering if ESC could join this Galaxy: http://godad.forumotion.net/forum.htm
I am just shocked by such Awesome Minifigure Troops. Your technique with the whole Mini Antenna stick to Patrol Cap with mics are so original! The Decals and detail make this stuff truly remarkable. Oh, and don't get me started on your Zero Grav Troops! Love 'em! Oh, and can I copy that Mics technique? Credits will go to you of course.
