Hi, I'm new to Civ Fanatics and to forums in general. Here's hoping I did this right! The current marine is only used in rare cases. It is a naval-land attack unit of the Atomic Era. Here are the current stats: Production Cost: 400 Strength: 65 (slightly less than Infantry) Movement: 2 Tech: Penicillin Upgrades to: None!?!? Abilities: - Amphibious promotion (Eliminates combat penalty for attacking from the sea or over a river) - Embarkation with Defense: Embarked units defend at double strength - Extra Sight While Embarked I think it needs to be buffed and there also needs to be an upgrade for it (Special forces?) in the Information Era. I think the buffs should have something to do with its naval-land attack purpose and not just some boring damage buff. I think it should start with these promotions in addition to the ones it already has: - +1 movement while embarked - Pay just 1 movement to move from sea to land (Denmark's bonus) - Woodsman promotion (Double movement rate through Forest and Jungle) So, what do you think?
