StarBase 118 Ops Marine Weapons & Equipment

Weapons

Cutlass

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.

 
Marine Weapons

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.

Other Tools

Combat Tricorder

 
Combat Tricorder

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.

Starbase 118 also serves as home base for a flight group of Crossbow Interceptor starfighters. Faster and more agile than the Peregrines, the Crossbow fighter is the primary space combat vessel of the Starbase 118 Marines.

In addition to the main flight group, the Starbase also houses two training variant Crossbows.

Multi-Use Land Excursion Vehicle

Squad-Level Troop Transport

  • Specs
    • Weapons
      • 3 rotating phaser turrets on the ballpit, one on each side, and one under it.
      • Dual micro photon torpedo launcher on top.
    • Additional Defenses
      • Heavy Duty Deflector Shield Emitters, one in front and one in back.
      • 2 portable holo emitters located at the top of the ballpit to assist with camoflage along with photomimetic and display camoflage which utilizes micro cameras to scan the surroundings and then projects what it sees to the Locust skin directly opposite.
    • Warp Capabilities
      • The Locust is capable for Warp Class shuttle duties, however it is not optimal for them, but it has replaced the smaller "work bee" nacelles with warp signature minimization shrouded warp nacelles, capable of achieving warp 2.5.

When mated with the detachable and ependable undercarriage, the Mule becomes a ground vehicle which allows the energy it would normally expend for flight activities to be utilized to enhance its offensive and defensive capabilities.


Flamingo Class Recon/ECM Vessel

 
Multiple views of the Flamingo

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.
