The highly-specialised vehicles and weaponry that help our troops thrive in the world’s most testing conditions and environments.

Boarding operations

Whether it’s moving equipment and personnel covertly from the world’s oceans and seas on to hostile shores, or patrolling the waters tackling pirates and drug traffickers, the Royal Marines use a varied fleet of military watercraft.

From landing craft with mounted guns, to small inflatable raiding craft; we can get troops, vehicles and equipment where they’re needed, in any scenario.

Tackling any terrain

Pushing ourselves to the absolute limit in the most gruelling conditions. It’s what we do.

Whether we’re training in the Arctic on snowmobiles or powering to combat on lightweight all-terrain vehicles, it’s only possible thanks to highly specialised kit that’s tailored to the situations we face.

Operating powerful Wildcat and Merlin helicopters, the Commando Helicopter Force and its squadrons are the wings of the Royal Marines.

Put to the test in every condition - from the sub-zero Arctic to the world’s most dense and dangerous jungles - our helicopters are always on standby to transport troops, provide vital battlefield reconnaissance and deliver devastating fire support to ground forces.
