The Ironian Federal Marine Corps (ICMC, also known as the Ironcastle Marine Corps) is a branch of the Ironcastle Armed Forces responsible for conducting amphibious operations with the Ironian Navy. The Ironian Marine Corps is one of the five armed service branches in the Ironcastle Department of Defence (DoD) and one of the six uniformed services of Ironcastle.

The Marine Corps has been a component of the Ironcastle Department of the Navy since 22 July 1856, working closely with naval forces. The ICMC operates installations on land and aboard sea-going amphibious warfare ships around Moneylania. Additionally, several of the Marines' tactical aviation squadrons, primarily Marine Fighter Attack squadrons, are also embedded in Navy carrier air wings and operate from aircraft carriers.

The history of the Marine Corps began when two battalions of Naval Marines were formed on 15 March 1752 in Aelcrest as a service branch of infantry troops capable of fighting on both at sea and on shore. By the mid-20th century, the Ironcastle Marine Corps had become a major theorist of amphibious warfare, which were utilised in the Moneylania Sea theatre of the Second Great War. As of 2028, the ICMC has around 127,000 active duty members and some 41,000 reserve Marines. It is the smallest Ironian military service within the DoD.
