The uniforms of the Royal Marines have similarities to that of the standard army. They use the Lyran Disruptive Pattern Camouflage (LDPU) with the 'Dauntless' Ballistic Armour, the BALCOTH Advanced Helmet, 'Mamba' tactical boots and 'Blacktalon' Combat Gloves.
Their differences lie in their Service and Dress uniforms. The Marines have a blue Dress uniform and an old fashioned Service set.
The Marines use an inventory of vehicles completely seperate from the Army, although they both use the Pseudonaja ATV.
