    Default Military of San Marino

    I always found the country of San Marino a fascinating little country. Located inside Italy, the small nation boasts a population of about 30,000 people and the total area of 24/sq.mi (520/km), It also has one of the worlds smallest military's. Its different branches have varied functions including: performing ceremonial duties; patrolling borders; mounting guard at government buildings; and assisting police in major criminal cases. There is also a military Gendarmerie which is part of the military forces of the republic. Now I searched the site and found nothing on this topic, but if there is than my apologizes and the mods can delete this thread. Now without further ado let's get this thread moving. If you have any pictures or videos please post them.

    The green with red trousers appears to be it according to Wiki....no camo, as far as I can tell.

    .........
    Each uniform indicates a different function; but all have an important mission: to continue the ceremonies and traditions which have survived, without change, throughout the centuries and which can be admired, for example, during national holidays

    From the looks of it it depends on the duty. In the picture above they are armed with flintlocks, it appears the standard issue rifle is the Beretta BM59

    The first pic in the first post also shows the M1 Garand. I wouldn't be surprised if they had more contemporary armament when deployed for real security tasks.
