Alien Defense Unit Marines, or A.D.U. Marines, are the standard soldiers of the Alien Defense Unit, the Military's largest branch. They attack enemies on sight, and will attack the player if provoked.
They were originally formed as Space Force Marines. Their armor and weapons vary in their divisions. They operate over all of Military space. Despite originally being formed as a defense force against extraterrestrials, they have been used for far more than that, as they are among the most effective units in the Military. A.D.U. Marines have the same serious demeanor as other Military units.
Standard A.D.U. Marines, mainly humans, wear grey armor, which, despite seeming rather unprotective, is a highly advanced and extremely durable Keplerium and Imperialite exosuit, which allows them to breath in space and survive in any environment. It gives them a very high resistance to all forms of attack, along with their weapons doing high amounts of damage. More advanced marines wear bulkier armor. They usually carry LF-17 laser rifles. A.D.U. Marines receive cybernetic enhancements, some more than others.
Types of A.D.U. Marines Edit
- Space Marine: The standard, grey armored A.D.U. Marines.
- Demolition Trooper: Elite soldiers in bulky exosuits, either grey or green. Use armguns on their exosuits, which fire explosives. Have more resistances and deal drastically more damage, but are slightly slower. Their exosuit also has jump jets.
- Exosphere Marine: A type of A.D.U. Marine meant to jump from space and operate in space with the use of a jetpack. They wear a more robotic exosuit.
- Star Ranger: Track down criminals across the stars on Military authority, and help recover hostages. They have more cybernetics than the standard marines, and wear a different type of exosuit, which can retract parts of its armor. When need be, the full set comes on.
- Military Police: Simply known as MPs, they guard Military checkpoints. Most wear light Keplerium armor with an advanced faceplate, while others wear uniforms that are similar to old Earth pilots.
- Aerospace Pilots: Fly starfighters and bombers. Also fly cruisers and large warships.
- Mech Pilots: Pilot Military mechs.
- Vehicle Operators: Drive many types of armored vehicles, from tanks to hovercars.
- Juggernauts: The most advanced A.D.U. Marines. They have heavy cybernetic enhancements, and seem devoid of emotions. They have the most health, resistances, and damage in the entire A.D.U., and possibly the Military itself, at least regarding a single unit. They wear heavy exosuits based off of the Imperial Infantrymen (standard) and Viceroy battle armor (elite).
