The United States Armed Forces is the primary military force of the United States. They consist of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and the Air Force.


Resistance Combat

 Up until the beginning of Resistance: Fall of Man, the U.S. had been decidedly uninvolved in the Chimeran War against the Chimera due to the nation's strict foreign policy of isolationism under the presidency of Noah Grace. However, in July 1951 when promises were made by the British in which they would exchange an Angel for military supplies and support, the U.S. finally agreed to militarily support the United Kingdom and its resistance against the Chimera on occupied British soil.

The United States Army 1st Ranger Regiment and the 3rd Ranger Regiment was responsible for the safe arrival of the shipments, and it was to meet up with British forces to deliver the said shipments in exchange for the Angel in York during Operation Deliverance. Before the two groups could meet, however, the Rangers were ambushed in York. Despite a valiant struggle, and a last-minute defense coordinated by Captain Winters, the entire regiment was utterly defeated due to spire missiles. U.S. Army troops were not seen fighting in Britain again until the joint British/American assault on the Chimera in Thames, where they reinforced the British with troops, air support, and M-12 Sabertooth tanks. The combined human forces later focus their attentions on the Chimeran Tower in London, culminating in the Battle of London. With the efforts of Sgt. Nathan Hale in internally destroying the London Tower, the Battle of London became a decisive victory for the human race. A day after the battle, all American forces in Britain were later recalled back to the United States.[1]

By August 1951, the Chimera expanded their assault on America, in which the nation lost most of the Northeast and the upper Midwestern states. U.S. military forces managed to hold the Chimeran advance for some time until the nation's downfall on May 28th, 1953. During the Chimeran invasion on May 15th Chimeran battleships devastated military installations on each coast of the United States, in which 60% of the U.S. armed forces were killed within the first 72 hours of the assault. It is presume that most, of the remaining military forces were decimated after the events of Operation Black Eden.

On July 4th, 1953, as depicted in Resistance: A Hole in the Sky, remnants of the U.S. military launched an attack on New York City to destroy the metropolis's Chimeran tower in an attempt to close the wormhole. Unfortunately the attack failed and caused heavy casualties to the remaining forces. It is unknown if the U.S. military is still operating by the time of Resistance 3 or disbanded. However, in the credits of Resistance 3, one of the photos shows survivors with uniforms in a room with weapons, radio transmitters, etc. This could mean that the U.S. military has become active again.

The U.S. Army was present in almost all Resistance games, except Resistance: Retribution and Resistance 3.

United States Marine Corps

The USMC were mentioned in the intel for the M5A2 Folsom Carbine in Resistance: Burning Skies. Interestingly, the U.S. Army Ranger's rucksacks are also labeled USMC.

United States Navy

The United Stated Navy were present at the beginning of Resistance: Fall of man, as the VTOLs can be seen taking off from U.S. Aircraft Carriers.

United States Air Force

The USAF provided support for Nathan Hale and the U.S. Army during Operation Deliverance, in the form of air support and VTOL transports. They once again assist Nathan Hale and the Sentinels in their battle against the Chimera during multiple events and also participated in the defense of New York and the United States mainland.


The United States' standard issue weaponry was the M5A2 Folsom Carbine, although it appeared to circulate the Hailstorm and Sapper weapons throughout its ranks as well. The Armed Forces also most likely armed with historical weapons, such as the .45 1911 pistol (seen on Joseph Capelli) and the Browning .50 cal heavy barreled machine gun.
