Royal Aero-Marines
« on: July 27, 2016, 10:16:34 PM »
Getting skyjacked by air pirates is constant threat for those that fly the skies of Darmonica, especially since during the War it was not unheard of military skyships being boarded. Much like the sailing ships of old, skyships can often be seen carrying a detachment of soldiers known as 'aero-marines'. These aero-marines serve on both military and civilian skyships, though the latter tends to belong to private security companies or corporate militias.

The best known of all of the aero-marine forces that exist in Darmonica is the Commonwealth's Royal Aero-Marines.

What sorts of uniforms/kit do most of these sorts of soldiers and marines wear in this? Are we fairly well into WWII style gear (and indeed when operating in the north is there a lot of furs/leathers for the area)?

Probably say loosely based on WW2 British Battledress with a leather jerkin and ugg/aviator's boots.

Likewise they have a helmet similar to the WW2/Cold War era para helmet.
