Historical Description Edit

The British Green Jacket Brigade was formed in 1948, then reorganized into the Royal Green Jackets 'large regiment' 18 years later. They trace their lineage back 200 years to the Royal American Regiment, the first British unit to forgo the famous redcoat and instead wear green for camouflage. Later renamed King's Royal Rifle Corps, the Royal Americans pioneered individual skirmish tactics, emphasizing mobility and shooting from cover over traditional massed line fire. To honor their light infantry heritage, the Green jackets carried no colors and marched 20 paces faster than Army standard.

Visuals Edit

An Anti-gas cape can be seen on the back of the rifleman. The Rifleman is holding a STEN Mark V submachine gun with a 32 round-detachable box magazine.

  • Use Green Jacket Rifleman to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since Green Jacket Rifleman can deal more damage to foot troops, bringing some along with Heavy Infantry and/or Heavy Cavalry will help deal with pesky defending foot troops!
