A Royal Marine Commando is the basic maneuver unit of the Royal Marines, a reinforced battalion comparable to a U.S. Marine Amphibious Unit. The Commando units, much like the U.S. equivalent, principally operate from amphibious warfare ships, with air support from helicopters and Harrier aircraft.

Operating together, the Commando units form a Royal Marine Brigade.
