A Marine Platoon is a group of fierce, highly-trained assault troops who specialize in boarding disabled ships and capturing them. You can hire a marine platoon by purchasing their services from an outfitter. Marine units are self-contained; they provide their own financial and logistical support by foraging. By adding more platoons, you can give yourself a better chance of capturing even the largest, most heavily manned vessels.
