US Space Force: Marine Corps by YNot1989 US Space Force: Marine Corps by YNot1989
The Space Force United States Marine Corps (USMC) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for providing power projection from space, using the orbital supremacy of the United States Space Force to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces. It is one of eight uniformed services of the United States. Created in 2051, the Space Marine Corps has been a component of the United States Department of the Space Force, and works closely with space forces for training, transportation, and logistics.

Conceived shortly after the establishment of the Space Force to provide space to surface deployments of forces, at the time aimed primarily at lunar combat, the Space Marine Corps consisted largely of US Marine Corps Force Recon operators with extensive experience in space based combat. These operators were to directly engage enemy forces in space as well as deploy to terrestrial targets.

The first operation conducted by the new branch of the military was the defense of the Tycho shipyards. A group of US Force Recon Marines experienced in microgravity operations were transferred over to the Space Force and quickly deployed to secure Tycho from Japanese invasion, retake the city of Armstrong, and wipe out the Japanese military presence on the Moon. 

Following the operations on the Moon, the Space Marine corps spent the remainder of the war deploying from orbit to combat Coalition forces on Earth, most famously at the Battle of Vancouver against Japanese interests in North America, and at the Battle of Beijing. Since the end of the Third World War, the Space Marines' ranks have surged to become the largest single force in the Earth Sphere, deploying globally to secure American interests.

Look up William H. Keith Jr. writing under the pseudonym of Ian Douglas, He has several books about the space marines according to the real Marine Corps Infrastructure. As a Marine, I applaud your effort and approve of your space marine seal OOOrah

Nope, just a sub-division of the US Marine Corps that works for the Space Force instead of the Navy.

As of WWIII Like Spartans with a nanosuit underneath the hard armor layer. They carry caseless rifles that fire a variety of ammo types (ranging from 7.62 fragmentation rounds, to depleated urainium and graphene jacketed rounds).

Currently the US Army Special Force(AIRBORNE) compliment the USAF pretty much the same way the USMC compliments the Navy. Don't you think that, if the Air Force is replaced with a Space Force, the rapid reaction forces will come from the Army, not the Marines?

Well in this timeline Force Recon Marines were already serving a number of roles in space operations along with a couple divisions of the Airborne Rangers and the SEALS. The USMC of the Space Force is really just an amalgamation of those old units.

Why is the "normal" Marine Corps not also involved in space combat? Especially since this Corps derived directly from force recon Marines? Also are their uniforms/ rank structure the same?

The requirements of the Marines of the Space Force vs. the Marines of the Navy are so different that a separate command structure just made more sense. The first Space Marines were Force Recon guys, but new recruits were quickly added on top of them. And their dress uniforms are identical, while their combat armor is built for operating in a vacuum and re-entering the atmosphere.

Ah I see, still seems kinda strange to ad another branch but I suppose it does make sense. Judging by some of the comments I assume this is from a series of books?

However I should state that the influence for a US Space Force is partly inspired by George Friedman's "The Next 100 Years," among other novels, non-fiction and fiction. Its not a unique concept.

What exactly is a Room Temperature Superconductor ?

But at room temperature. Its basically a conductive material with zero resistance, meaning you can transmit power over great distances nearly-instantaneously with no loss, so you don't need substations. This means that the energy grid would be a truly national energy grid, and any power generation station could be used to power anything that requires electricity anywhere in the country. Additionally, as the video demonstrates, they're basically the perfect way to achieve mag lev tech, which means you can basically reinvent everything from trains to the brushless motor.

Interesting disign on the Eagle... Any reason why the Marines are in charge of the power projection instead of the Space Force? While I know that the US Space Forces are the only military space force in this scenario (at least after WW3), something similar made for the WW3 Japanese space forces and for the Polish, Japanese and Turkish special forces on the ground, would be awesome. Looking forward for more!

The Marines are in charge of person to person combat, where the spaceforce commands air and space drones and provides orbital bombardment and surveillance. The relationship between the two is essentially the same as that between the Navy and the Naval Marine Corps.

I understood that, I just thought "providing power projection" ment that they where also responsable for the solar energy projection to earth, as in the bolts on the Seal.

Actually most of space based power comes from Fusion reactors, space based solar is fed in only a few cases via space elevator transmission. Microwave beaming is too dangerous.

Scarfield Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2013
 Interesting though, given that microwave beaming in Friedman's book is a game changer in the War, as the US forces can charge up on the spot, giving along with the new battlestar the US superiority on the field, and later used commercially. I just connecting that with the "power projection" and the lightning bolts on the seal, sorry for the misunderstanding.

I think Friedman really underestimates the potential of Room Temperature Superconductors (which I think we'll probably have by mid century) and that a portable fusion reactor is a lot easier to deal with than a portable microwave receiver.

I take it from the description that they deploy much like the ODST from Halo or Space Marines from Warhammer 40K via drop pods ?. What kind of kit would the USSFMC use, would drone command and control gear be among it ?

They  usually drop together in groups of five to twenty aboard a variety of mini-shuttles and landing craft, but their suits can actually survive reentry on their own. When they first entered service in the 2050s they are equipped with atmosphere sealed powered exoskeletons (think the nanosuit from Crisis with a secondary layer of hard armor and hardpoints for weapons loadout) jump packs (they can't fly, but they can enter into a powered decent), a variety of wearable weapons and usually carry a .30 caliber caseless rifle or railgun. The whole suit is capable of command and control of drones, using a non-invasive brain-computer interface.

"ish"!? D:  Though I always wondered why the musclesuit from Crysis didnt have any substantial armor plating, guess they didn't want to cover anything, but it raises the question to where he was carrying his spare ammo....
