 comparing it to how the conquistadors conquered S. America is a pretty good analogy.

Homo4Romo - Its not like all 100,000 of them take the field at the same time...put a few thousand redcoats in a big open field marching in formation and it would be a massacre.


good point. if you're talking about the British army of the RW, they were a fairly spread out force.

marines defeat in detail.

American soldiers are pretty good at recruiting local auxillaries too. it only took 7 marines to tkae out Tripoli like that.

I voted with the numbers... how many rounds does an infantry man normally carry on his person?

But need more info... proximity, terrain, blah, blah, blah

If they fought to the death the marines would win everytime and not lose a man.

Its not like all 112,000 Brits were in one area at a time. Now imagine like 1,000 in field standing in line and 100 marines picking em off from cover. Panic!

I say brits, wife says marines. She says marines can attack long range, faster etc...

I say if zombies can over run you with NO WEAPONS, marines can be taken by 112000 brits that can shoot back.

 Every marine that graduates bootcamp is a rifleman capable of hitting a man sized target at 500yds with iron sights

Ok, well, we haven't really established enough info to give an accurate answer.

What weapons do each have?

How much ammo?

Any vehicles?

I went with the Brits based on the following assumptions.

No matter what armoured vehicles, artillery or aircraft the Marines had, they would run out of fuel and be reduced to functioning as Infantry when the fuel ran out.

100 guys can't carry enough ammo to take out the entite Brit army.

Battles between the two groups would result in Brit obliteration in the field, however as it went on, the Brits would be less helpless.

Revolutionary War Artillery ( and the whole Brit Army had lots) would cause casulties...cavalry raids and skirmishing troops would ambush the marines.

Eventually by attrition and exhaustion the guys facing a 1000 to 1 ratio would lose.

Dr Doom, the poll is more about how a small modern force could fight an army from the American revolutionary era. Instead of US Marines, replace them with 100 Royal Marines.

 The marines would get wise and offer their allegiance to HRM.

how come the brits get to have small cannons and horses, but the marines only have what they can carry, and nothing they can ride? thats stacking the deck quite bit.

marines should get they're usual light vehicles (including some amphibious one - they are marines), and some supply trucks. and if the brits have fortified bases, the marines should also have a fortified base.
