    As a former soldier I would contend that they do jam way too often.

    As to the unit, I can't wait for a 'fixed' graphic so that they have M16A1s that would fit their 'Nam era uniform.

    Actually, this may have been the intent. If you are trying to make a generic marine that could be from any civilization, wouldn't you want to combine the features of well-known historical representations of the unit? If they made a unit with an M16, it would look just like the American marines. If they slapped a Soviet-style uniform on the unit, and kept the AK-47, then it would be a Soviet (or Russian :)) unit. This way, they get a generic unit representing a particular style or type of unit from an age in history (And the US still gets some credit, with their SEAL unit.)

    Then again, I am probably giving them too much credit.

    Naturally, everything has to be American in the game, right? AK's are inferior, other nation's Marine Corps sucks etc. Bah, what a fuzz because something isn't American.

    Im not American, and I never will be, yet I think this post is the lamest ive read in this forum all month.

    Was this even nessesary? If you read 90% of Americans who post here, they dont really care whether its THEIR marine or anyone elses.
