StarBase 118 Ops Marine Weapons & Equipment
|StarBase 118 Ops|
Marine equipment is similar to fleet standard, though there are differences and most of the weapons can be fitted with expanded power supplies for long-term missions.
It may be ancient, but the cutlass is traditional, dating back hundreds of years. Marines carry them in dress situations and in combat. The modern cutlass has a collapsing blade comprised of a baakonite/tritanium alloy, and can be electrified to be used as a baton during crowd control scenarios.
Type IIIC Phaser Rifle
The marines carry a modified version of this weapon, equipped with an underslung photon grenade launcher, a stun bayonet and an improved holographic targeting system.
Photon Missile Launcher Attachment
Used on "search and destroy" missions, a marine might be outfitted with a photon missile launcher attachment that can be fitted to their sidearm, an enhanced Type IIA phaser.
Type III SOCOM Carbine Phaser Rifle
On covert missions, the marines have been known to carry Type III SOCOM carbine phaser rifles, fitted with various accessories on RIS mounts.
The combat tricorder is a specialized tricorder carried by Starfleet expeditionary forces. Along with basic tricorder functions, the combat tricorder is programmed with strategic and tactical information and countermeasures.

Flamingo Class Recon/ECM Vessel
Though a relative old model compared to many Marine ships currently in service, the Flamingo remains a reliable component of Starfleet Marines operations. The main reason for the vessel's longevity - having been in active service for nearly sixty years - is its versatility. The Flamingo was designed to be employed as a recon craft for both military and search & rescue operations, an electronic countermeasures (ECM) ship for space combat situations and as a light troop/personnel transport.
In most situations, the Flamingo is capable of carrying one pilot in its cockpit area and up to twelve others in its main body. The exception is during ECM missions, during which larger ECM control consoles swing out from interior walls, decreasing capacity to one pilot and six others, including the ECM operator.
Originally designed for atmospheric flight, the Flamingo was retrofit with both warp and impulse engines thirty years ago. However, the warp performance of the Flamingo Class has proved to be unreliable and it is generally only deployed in situations that require impulse or atmospheric flight. Warp travel in a Flamingo is recommended only for very short distances.
Armament includes front-facing phaser pulse cannons and an optional compliment of twenty-four photon torpedoes.
