Marine Special Operations Regiment (MSOR) consists of a Headquarters Company and three Marine Special Operations Battalions. The MSOBs are tasked with direct action, special reconnaissance, counter-terrorism, and information operations. They are also trained to carry out peacetime foreign internal defense and unconventional warfare. This includes giving military training to friendly foreign nations. These Marine elite of the Marine Special Operations Teams of the MSOB was initially drafted from the famous Force Reconnaissance Marines.
The Marine Raiders were elite units established by the USMC during World War II to conduct amphibious light infantry warfare, particularly in landing in rubber boats and operating behind the lines. Raiders are said to be the first United States special operations forces to form and see combat in World War II. Raiders Lt Col Evans F. Carlson used egalitarian and team-building methods learned from the Communists during his years in China: he treated raiders officers and enlisted men with minimum regard to rank as leaders and fighters, gave his men "ethical indoctrination," describing for each man what he was fighting for and why, and used the Chinese phrase "Gung-ho!" as a motivational slogan.
Looks like DAM Toys is going into Soldier Story's territory ;p Soldier Story has been the king of 1/6 scale modern warfare 12-inch military figures (Playhouse is also up there but doesn't seem to put out as many figures) with DiD staying focused producing and releasing military figures of the World War II era. Now DAM Toys seem to be coming up strong on the market with their own version of the modern warrior. It's all good for us 1/6 scale figure collectors because it only means that there are more options for us to choose from.
