Need a point man?
- Ranger reporting

If training and preparation decide the battle, then the Rangers have already won the battle, as they have plenty to spare. Their performance is always superior to the enemy, even when outnumbered. They are issued with the most refined US equipment, including the M16A5, an upgraded version of the tried and true M16 assault rifle, and Flash-Bang grenades, which allow then to clear garrisoned infantry at a distance.  

They are also trained to perform a Combat Drop from a transport helicopter, allowing them to breach and clear fortified structures more efficiently than any other infantry unit. Veteran Rangers are still within the ranks of the US military, but commanders that requested their assistance will be the only ones to see how truly battle rounded these men are.
