Royal Marines Armoured Support Group

The current Royal Marines Armoured Support Group (RMASG) is an element of the Royal Marines that operates the Viking BvS 10 All Terrain Vehicle. It is the successor to the Royal Marines Armoured Support Company, and is, in effect, on permanent loan from operational command of 3 Commando Brigade to the Battle Group currently in Afghanistan. It is based at Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton in Somerset.

In the Second World War, the RMASG was formed to give British and Commonwealth forces heavy fire support in the opening attacks of the Normandy Landings.

Famous quotes containing the words royal, support and/or group:

    All hail! the pow’r of Jesus’ Name;
    Let angels prostrate fall;
    Bring forth the Royal Diadem,
    To crown Him Lord of all.
    Edward Perronet (1726–1792)

    ... the first reason for psychology’s failure to understand what people are and how they act, is that clinicians and psychiatrists, who are generally the theoreticians on these matters, have essentially made up myths without any evidence to support them; the second reason for psychology’s failure is that personality theory has looked for inner traits when it should have been looking for social context.
    Naomi Weisstein (b. 1939)

    The government of the United States at present is a foster-child of the special interests. It is not allowed to have a voice of its own. It is told at every move, “Don’t do that, You will interfere with our prosperity.” And when we ask: “where is our prosperity lodged?” a certain group of gentlemen say, “With us.”
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
