All I know is that the "Marines" are part of MAF. As seen in the OP of
Giren's Greed, the Marine monikor describes their operating range, from
Space to Earth (Cima and her troops were shown to be on Earth). It is
highly likely that they are part of 1st Mobile Infantry Division, since
Cima's speciality is the dirty works, and she clearly has experience on
colony drop (quite possibly THE only reason Delaz included her in Stardust).
