Section 13.13 of the manual says that non-marine units suffer about 30% attack strenght penalty while doing an amphibious attack. This implies I think, that units with the "marines" icon don't suffer this penalty. However no other part of the manual ever mentions this again (for example section 13.9.6 on water assaults) Section 16.1 that describes additional unit icon properties doesn't list any special effects for "marine" icons which makes me think they are just alternate infantry icons. So my question is: Do units with "marine" icons suffer normal penalties during cross-river and amphibious assaults? Has anyone checked?

Note that a non-Marine unit attacking from a Deep Water location has its Attack Strength multiplied by 0.7

That doesn't imply anything, it clearly says that Marine units don't suffer the .7 deep water penalty. This has nothing to do with cross-river assaults.

The wording of the sentence (It describes a general rule about amphibious assaults without refering to marines specificaly)and the fact that this unit property isn't mentioned anywhere else, while other units properties are didn't make it immediately obvious for me.I wondered if it was perhaps an error in the manual so that's why I'm asking if anyone ran actual calculations for amphibious assaults by units with marine icons.
