Two years ago, France started campaign to attract new recruits for its Commandement des Opérations Spéciales. Their campaign soon find way out to YouTube where it got some interest. According to a report by the London Daily Mail two years ago, the offical promotional video is titled, “A very special video”. The video itself is profesionally filmed and assembled and features French commandos in the type of scenes you’d see in a Hollywood blockbuster.
This includes insertions by parachute, minisub, and with scuba gear.
The French Commandement des Opérations Spéciales (COS) was founded in 1992 to control the special operations forces across the entire French military. This includes the 1st Régiment de Parachutistes d’Infanterie de Marine and the 13th Régiment de Dragons Parachutistes from the French army, the Force Maritime des Fusiliers Marins et Commandos from the French navy, and the Division des Opérations Spéciales from the French air force.
The famous Groupe d’intervention de la Gendarmerie Nationale — known for a number of hostage rescues and counter-terrorism missions — can be called on by the COS for reinforcement, along with other units across all the French armed forces. Among all those featured gear, there is one especially notable piece of gear. That is the Transall C-160, a Franco-German twin-engine cargo plane that can hold up to 88 paratroopers and which has a top speed of 368 miles per hour and an operational range of 1,151 miles. France had 75 of these planes in their miltiary service.
The video also featured helicopters like the AC532 Cougar, the AS332 Super Puma, and the AS330 Puma, Tigre gunships, and assault rifles like the HK416 and FAMAS. The engagement of the video has never been revealed, but we can assume that it got some interest among French population. Too see how it looks in France, please take a look at the entire trailer below.
US Special Forces Fast-Rope from Ospreys
When the U.S. Army needs to get their Special Forces operators into or out of a tight spot, it uses the Fast Rope Insertion/Extraction System (FRIES). U.S. Air Force CV-22 Ospreys practiced this insertion method with U.S. Army Special Forces operators in Latvia. US Army Special Forces are deployed in Latvia as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve.
Venezuelan Military Intimidate US Marine Corps in Shocking Video
When the official in the United States Marine Corps saw the video at first they were shocked. But then as the video was disseminated through the ranks, the shock turned to laughter and the laughter eventually turned to smiles and the smiles trickled their way down into the loins of the Marines who are now sporting a rock hard kill-boner. The video which emerged on social networks is purportedly showing forces loyal to Nicholas Maduro who are showing their readiness to “defend” Venezuela. From a tactical point of view, this is ridiculous, but feel free to watch and to give your opinion.
