I know the Army and Marines are different and don't really like each other but they basiclly use the same things so I'm going to feature them together instead of seperate.

Army And Marines
The Abrams Tank
The armor is made out of depleted uranium, steel, and other highly clissified materials and can fire many different types of artillary and weapons. The M1 Abrams Main Battle Tank (MBT) is the namesake of the late General Creighton W. Abrams, former Army Chief of Staff and commander of the 37th Armored Battalion. It is the backbone of the armored forces of the United States military, and several of US allies as well. The purpose of this vehicle is to provide mobile firepower for armored formations of sufficient capability to successfully close with and destroy any opposing armored fighting vehicle in the world, while providing protection for it's crew in any conceivable combat environment. It is capable of engaging the enemy in any weather, day or night on the multi-dimensional, non-linear battlefield using its firepower, manuever, and shock effect. The Abrams Tank system synchronizes its high tempo, distributed manuever via its digitized situational awareness and the fusion of onboard and remote battlefield sensors.
The HMMWV or Humvee
The HMMWV (High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle - also called Humvee) is the U.S. Military's all-purpose, modern-day jeep. With four-wheel drive and automatic transmission, this diesel-powered off-road beast is among the most capable all-terrain vehicles in the world. Like the versatile jeep it replaced, the Humvee has many configurations, including troop carrier, command vehicle, ambulance, weapons platform (Stinger, .50 Cal, MK-19 Automatic Grenade Launcher, TOW, etc.) and psychological operations vehicle, to name a few.
