World's best soldiers ??? info


hey guys - who do you think are the best soldiers in the world ?

By this I don't mean who is the best Army, because some have better equipment than others, but who is the best on an individual level ?

My vote goes to the Gurkha's - the men from Nepal, absolutely fearless fighters - their bravery could never be equalled.

Spentnaz are really good. They look at death as another birthday gift. The fighting technique is remarkable. They are so fast and strong. THe kick butt when they have to.

I agree info


All militaries of different countries have things that there good at. The british are pretty good when it comes to intel. The Spetznaz are good in unarmed combat. The ones who I admired areno longer around. They were known as THE FRENCH FOREIFN LEGIONIERS. They fought rough and hard for less than $5 a month.

The Foreign Legion is still alive and kickin...

I think that the unit you are talking about No MERCY is the 2nd REP (2ème Régiment étranger de parachutistes), and they too are still around..
These are the airborne forces of the legion, their "Special Forces".
They do also have normal infantry, cavalry and other regular army units.
Find more info about the legion here:
