Re: Marines and Combat Personel?

Starfleet has never shown any on-screen Marines, although Enterprise did have the MACOS.

Some other races do however appear to have specific combat-troops, The Dominion's Jem'Hadar being a prime example, but the Romulans were also mentioned of having used Remans as shock-troops.

No mention has ever been made of armoured vehicles, it could well be that they are simply not used in an environment where the armour and shielding on a small vehicle may be of little use against the weapons of a starship in orbit.
