Seriously:
Depends on ammo and how much equipment they're using.
Also, is it daylight or is it nighttime?
The picture has armoured vehicles in it, do the marines get to use those said vehicles?

a legion is like 3000-5200 men, marines would win because bullets > leather armor

you should read the article. that is the entire roman army, it says right at the top that a legion is about 5000 men.

if so then the marines would win 100%

The modern army has a clear advantage, but an entire legion is about 5000 men.

Even if they were unarmed and totally nude, there's more of them and could easily swarm the soldiers given the right situation.

Autism alert: Keep in mind the romans did not consider deceit to be a part of war, but a part of cowardice. They would attempt to fight the marines head on, rather than ambush them.

Because of that I would put my money on the 1000 marines, 100% of the time.

depends on distance. If they are right ontop of each other the marines cant really do a great deal.

Rome was just the biggest blunt object around.
At this point, the marines are the US Mil's blunt object as well.

If weaponry and armor available were equalized, I'd put my money on mutual destruction.

If either of them had to fight an Alexander or Hannibal, or any of a number of Asian Generals, then they lose.

What were the roman soldiers' shields made out of? Was that material bullet resistant or not?

If so, I believe 5000 extremely well-trained sword -and spearmen with shields could beat 1000 marines
>>
>>718669515
Romans by weight of numbers.

Plus marines require 5 bullets to kill one man because they are just trigger happy cowards who wouldnt wait for the right moment to fire and rather just spray the enemy.

Well doing the math, each marine need to put a round into 5 romans, and they have a whole mag to do so, maybe even more. They shields probably won't hold up as rifle munition has plenty of piercing potential.

If the the Romans were to close the gap nevertheless I'm not sure how the marines would fair against a legionare in hand to hand combat. The marine IS very well trained in melee combat but the fighting style would be very different. Would a knife and grappling be enough against a sword and shield. Tribals fought against legions and won on multiple occasions. Did they fight with unorthodox techniques as well? Based on these odds and the legion having to make it past the wall of gunfire to even worry about hand to hand combat, imma give it to the marines.

I think maybe Romans just because of sheer numbers. They'd be spraying them down nicely for a while for sure, but when the Romans actually get close enough, the Marines aren't going to risk friendly firing their comrades when everyone is neck and neck, then it just goes down to combat and although Marines are SICK when it comes to combat, you ain't beating a sword and shield with just a little knife and some biceps.

If legion, marines would mow them down in an hour.

If entire army, they would run out of bullets and possibly be overwhelmed by grief of death.

If unlimited ammo and marines are psychologically trained to not care how many they kill and they have jeeps and fairly smart leader, then marines would win in a few weeks or possibly days.

...meanwhile in the real world. Romans absorb pressure until marines run out of ammo then its slaughter time.

>>718671267
The sheer numbers of a 5:1 ratio?

When a standard combat load for an infantryman is 270 rounds?

Going up against 5000 men with leather armor and plywood shields?

So, assuming every marine would be a rifleman, excluding mortars, grenadiers, machine Gunners and any armor.... You're talking an average of 270,000 rounds to be used against 5000 enemies who have next to no distance striking potential.
>>
>>718669515
Marines, if they have enough bullets. If the marines run out of bullets and the Romans still outnumber them 2:1 the marines would be cut down.

1:1 I think it would be very close, depending on who is leading the marines and the legion.
>>
>>718669515
Romans.
As soon as the front lines started going down from the automatic weapons fire, they'd charge them and in hand to hand, they'd carve up the mass of marines like a thanksgiving day turkey.

What it took, mentally and physically, to fight as literal butchers in those battles, is nothing like what anyone has experienced since the gun brought about the age of technological warfare.

As soon as the guns are ineffective, any army from the era where you stood in a mob with big knives in your hands, stared down another one looking back at you, and ran into them with minimal armor and grabbed as many people as possible with your own hands and hacked and stabbed and chopped and sawed them to death, beats anyone in any army in the world today. If you survived an entire war of that, you were a fucking monster, much less three or four wars, when they'd by then be able to make whatever was left of you a general.

Marines go home to their families and see a therapist for having shot people at a distance.

You're also assuming the Romans wouldn't be shitting their pants just witnessing the horror of modern weaponry.

O fuk
Then they'd look down @ the ground and you'd have...

a Roman legion with automagic weapons.
>>
>>718671714

I'm not trolling. I'm using my brain. How are the marines going to get any shots in if they're face to face with the Romans? For one their allies can't shoot them so it'll just be a combat death match between 1k Marines and probably at this point depending on distance lets say far, 3.5k Romans.

The Romans will win.

Romans using Lorica segmentata or chain? I'm guessing that after hitting nearly an inch of wood covered in leather then hitting about 2mm or steel the round would pack less of a punch. still...

>>718669515
A gun is more effective at a distance than a sword or a pike.

But a roman is more deadly than a marine.

All other things being made equal in either case, and you have your answer.

yeee harrrr gets beat by archers, not everyone in a legion was a swordsman
>>
>>718672238
I'd like to remind the thread that a legionarre would carry at least one pilum, that's 5,000 minimum.

Only 1000 need to hit, not sure it would matter where they hit either. That'd cause serious morale damage if nothing else.

Though alternatively, machineguns would drop countless romans immediately and i couldn't imagine the kind of damage that'd do to Roman morale respectively.

Armor from those times do not even stand up against a modern .22, even with a sheild
With this information, and only a 5:1 ratio, marines would clearly win. Unless it was strict hand to hand combat or the starting distance was less than a few hundred feet
