They're called the Amphibious Rapid Deployment Brigade.

Comment: Being a moderator doesn't mean I speak for Palladium Books. It just makes me the lifeguard at their pool.
Based on the Wiki it looks like they are renaming a unit of light infantry that specializes in amphibious operations into a dedicated amphibious infantry unit...

Sure does. Paired with the Izumo-Class, it'll be pretty potent.

Interesting but unless they get mecha as well, I'm not sold on it.

Well, unless those marines and higher echelons get some pretty robust counter-A2/AD doctrine and tech (ahem, mecha)...that brigade will be really useful against foes that couldn't stop it on their best day. It makes for sweet press, but is ultimately a fairly niche capability that has limited use against a peer/superior foe other than goading larger responses.
