The Army has changed drastically for the 21st century. During the 20th century's Vietnam War, a "Leg Outfit", just boot leather (No M-113 APC/ACAV-Armored Personnel Carr…iers/Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicles); was approximately 600 men.
Depends on the war. Usually marines are more survivable than any other service because of their training. They train the hardest and therefore are the best.
I would say no. The term light infantry implies mobility overland. Marine units of some countries may be designated as light infantry, but most marines today are primarily for… the establishment of a beachhead. They move a short distance from ship to shore, not strictly infantry, and they are rather heavy.
An infantry battalion has between 300 and 1,300 men.
That would depend on which Regiment.
there are 300 to 1000 marines in a battalion
The Marines dont have an airborne infantry. Only the Army.
Typically there are three Battalions in a Regiment. A Marine Corps Grunt Battalion has on average around 750 Marines (may vary if the U.S. is in a time of war or not). So a Re…giment would average around 2300 Marines.
Infantry means foot soldiers, as distinct from tankers, artillerymen, engineers, and other specialists. The foot soldiers are the ones who actually have to looking for the ene…my with a gun in their hands and do the army's business of defeating the enemy. A battalion is an organizational unit, usually with about 800 or so men. There are battalions of many types, to perform many functions, including infantry battalions. A rifleman is the basic infantryman, armed the army's standard weapon. He is a member of a squad. His squad is one of several in a platoon. His platoon with three or four others are a company. Three or four companies make a battalion. Three battalions make a regiment, and three regiments make a division. Two or more divisions make a corps, and two or more corps make a field army.
It depends. There are 4 people in a team, 13 in a squad, about 42 in a platoon, 3 rifle platoons plus 1 weapons platoon plus HQ and support makes about 160-180 in a compan…y. 3 rifle companies plus 1 weapons co. plus 1 HQ Co. make a battalion so 750-900 in a battalion. Sometimes less, sometimes more.
i think four years
Between 600 and 1000 men.
My artillery unit wiped out an entire infantry battalion with two well-placed shots.
