Im not gonna give you the whole history of them but they fought on Midway, Gudalcanal, New Georgia, and Bouganville. They were the USMC equivalent to the Commandos and Rangers (special ops). http://www.usmarineraiders.org/ is a excelent website detailing the Raiders combat ops and its history. w2_bougainville_usmc_k9.jpgRaiders01.jpg

Marine raiders also raided Makin in 42. Although a success, it made Japan deploy a lot more troops in the central pacific, so in a way, may have ended up costing a lot of American lives as Americans finally advanced to tarawa, etc..

Not really sure how much can be done to add them. Id love to see added Marine stuff, but it's not like putting this specific unit in is gonna do anything, specific. Unless they had a neat little pickup kit that had their patch on the arm or something. But hell, there were a lot of mixed unit types fighting in the Marines during the Pacific. Lets add the Alamo Scouts too dammit!

Would they have different weapon loadouts or are we just talking reskins and new maps?
