Why the fuck do Marines need an Air Force?
Why the fuck do Marines even need to exist?
We have a Navy for the ships
We have an Air Force for the planes
We have an Army for tanks and helicopters
What are Marines for? The Army has special forces, the Army has the 10th Mountain division. The Army isn't afraid of water, they can travel in ships.
Do the Marines exist just for gay fantasies?

Marines are for dumbasses who still want to feel special but will never actually be special.

Marines historically served the role of being boarding parties, in partnership with the Navy. As you can imagine, no one needs an entire military branch to act as a ship boarding party, so they turned into a smaller, shittier, more motivated version of the Army that's attached to the Navy. In WWII, the marines effectively acted as the Army in the pacific, muh amphibious warfare. See where in the 40s or 50s the Marines were almost forced to merge with the Army because of their uselessness as a separate branch.

Every branch is under a manning and financial crisis, the USMC is not the only one. In fact, the muhreens owning up to it may help their plight this year in the budget.

No, that would be the Navy, you silly seaman!

Supposedly tighter CAX integration, officially. That's it. I think marines are more of a playboy fantasy. They have shittier equipment, chronically underfunded and staffed, worst stats on most everything including education, crime, and injury. That marines are the best or most honourable is pure propaganda making up for the fact they're a bunch of shitheads and burnouts.

They're the branch the rejects of the rejects go to. They're bullet-catchers. The roles they serve like presidential guard, embassy, etc are already filled by other branches and PMCs and their absence wouldn't even cause a hiccup.

There is shit that needs to be done that the Navy isn't crazy enough to do.

Why the fuck do Marines need an Air Force?
Once it was so they could get CAS quickly by keeping it in house, these days there is no need as combined OPs are easier due to computers.

Why the fuck do Marines even need to exist?
Naval assault was once an important specialization, not so much these days thanks to allies allowing bases on the same continent as the AO. It's still handy to have because allies don't stay that way forever.

you will get better answers on /k/

The USMC uses the older hornets, C & D models, while the Navy uses and still buys super hornets, E, F, and G model, with a small number of original hornets in use. The super hornet is much larger than the original, giving the effect of the older hornets looking fatter in comparison.

Every time the world is at relative peace for a decade or two people proclaim warfare has fundamentally changed. Then there's a war and we're back to sending people charging into bunkers and bullets. War has not fundamentally changed. If, goddess forbid, the US gets into the shit with a real world power they're going to need every swinging dick the Marines can give to manage the amphibious landings first major strikes, and ship security.

They don't. That shit's extra.

Think of them like shock troops. They go in before every other branch, fuck shit up, then let the army take over. Navy uses them for land assaults as well. USMC recon is the best in the military.

I assume you meant original hornets are bigger. Didn't know. It seemed like I was looking at an emaciated F14 crossed with an F-15. Some bastard of the two, which would make sense given their mfr.

You mean the 10th Mountain division and 75th ranger regiment? Not even counting Devgru, Seal Teams, Special Forces, ODA, ODD, etc that go in first and fuck shit up. Literally every other branches SF goes in before the muhreens do.

@Garbage Can Lid
AHAHAHAHA do you even SOCOM, nigger? SEALs, Rangers, SF, STS, Delta, SWC, also USAF sorties all go in before marines. Force Recon has received merit from other groups, but not Recon; definitely not regular marines. Even Force Recon isn't accepted by them as tier one.

You may think, from paid TV time, that marines did the bulk of nasty urban work in Iraq, but army was right there with them and doing way more. Marines are jealous showgirls. Excited retards to fuel the fire with their dead bodies.

Obvious bait thread, but the air force and navy are just methods to fleece money from taxpayers. When you want to invade a country with boots on the ground, only the Marines will do

If I wanted Leeky Forums or "mentally handicapped lifecare centres" to "get the job done" ie drum up sympathy for our boys from home, I'd tell the marines to get get killed, er, enter first.

user, you have no idea how much a front the capability of the marines is. They're retarded as shit, they're the chaff from the wheat. They're the worst of the worst.

You know how retard care centres pretend their tards are admirable hot shit? That's how we talk up our marines. They're the special education force.

@girlDog
original F-18s are smaller, thus they look fatter when compared to a longer super hornet.

Yes, there's absolutely no overlap between any of the other branches of the military, as they were all founded long after the rise of the internet, so coordinated operations were simple and easy to execute.

Marines are a bunch of goddamn crybabies. No wonder the Russians think we're weak. They Ruskies can lose 100 soldiers and the most emotion they have is a cigarette and a vodka for the fallen.

I'm sure ISIS and Al-Nusra right now wished they had an Air Force and a Navy. They already have Marines, big, dumb, stupid looking.
