The French Naval Commandos are the special forces division of the French Navy. Comprised of 500 members, the group is stationed across the coasts of France. Membership is very limiting and training is considered the hardest in the world. One requirement is that a recruit must server a minimum of 9 months of service in the Troupes de marine. After, their service in the French Marine Corps. recruits go through 20 weeks of evaluation and commando training. Recruits are only given two hours of sleep and are awoken daily by the sound of grenades, simulating warfare and artillery fire. Failures are high and the number is equivalent to the drop-out rate for US Navy Seals and Special Boat Service training.
Battle vs. Shayetet 13 (by Codgod13)Edit
Four French commandos arrive via zodiac on a very small island with a unique underground river that surfaces in a pond. The French scout the island, while four Israelis emerge through the pond. The French are totally unaware, as the Shayetet members are still mostly submerged. One surges out of the water, taking a risk and firing three shots from his glock. The gun doesn't malfunction, and one of the Commandos are shot dead. As the Shayetet members emerge and ambush the commandos, but due to the water most of their weapons malfunctioned. The French overcome their surprise and start firing at the Israeli's who are running for cover. One of the Shayetet is too slow and is shot in the head with a famas.
The warriors spread out as one of each team sets up a sniper and the other two go to scout. An Israeli and a commando confront each other and a firefight ensues, which ends with the two each taking cover. The Israeli tosses a piece of semtex on the tree that the frenchman is taking cover behind. The tree explodes, killing the Commando. The Israeli then goes to scout further, only to be sniped by the Commando with a Hecate. One of the Israeli's sees the french sniper, at the same time he is seen. Ducking under bullets, he takes cover behind a rock, and fires accurately with his tavor, killing the sniper.
Meanwhile, the now alone commando leader sees the Israeli sniper and starts firing with his famas, but misses. He is nearly shot, but escapes. The two leaders encounter each other with smg's, and start firing. The older sten jams, and the Shayetet leader is shot in the gut. He collapses and pulls out a glock, firing until he runs out of ammo. He drops the pistol as the untouched Commando walks toward him with a loaded MAC 50. He aims, only to be shot in the back of the head by the sniper who had decided followed him. The sniper radios for evac, and helps his leader to safety.
Winner: Shayetet 13.
While the French had more effective assault rifles and submachine guns, the super-accuracy of the intervention and the Isreali's better training gave them the win.
Battle vs. US Marine Recon (by Omnicube1)Edit
Five US Marine Recon members have been given orders to build a command post on a jungle island to establish communications. The sniper perches himself on a cliff and looks down through his scope. He sees a Zodiac making its way to the coastline. Five French Naval Commandos disembark and fan out.
"Sir, hostiles are moving up the beach. What do you want me to do?" asked the US sniper.
"Terminate 'em," answers the squad leader. The sniper acknowledges and aims with his M110 SASS for the head of one of the Commandos. He fires. The bullet carves through the commando's head. The French squad leader orders his men to spread out and go for the hills. He orders his marksman to find and neutralize the sniper that shot at them. The French sniper raises his FRF2 and finds the American sniper. He fires a round, pulls the bolt back, and fires another. Both rounds pierce the chest of the American sniper. The remaining Marines move down the hill and find cover amongst the plants. The commandos crawl slowly through the wet jungle. The American squad leader aims his MP5A3 and the others follow suit. They all fire in unison, 3 firing the M4 Carbine, and the French duck for cover. One commando is struck multiple times and blood spreads everywhere. The commandos return fire, 2 wielding the FAMAS G2 and the leader wields the UMP45. One American is struck right through the throat and he gurgles and chokes in his blood. The French squad leader places a M18 Claymore near him and tells his men to fall back. The Marines chase after them. One of them trips the Claymore and it kills two of them. The squad leader sees his men fall and pushes forward wielding the MEU(SOC) and V40 Mini-Grenade. He hides behind a bush and sees the French celebrating their supposed victory. He pulls the pin from his grenade and counts to three. He then throws his grenade at them. He takes down two of them and charges forward firing his MEU(SOC) at the French squad leader. He dives for cover and reloads his pistol. The commando leader pulls out his sidearm, the Glock 17, and fires at the American. He waits for all 17 rounds to be dispensed. The American hears the French commando reload and runs forward. He sees the Frenchmen pop up with the pistol but the Marine breaks his arm and he screams in agony. The Marine sticks the barrel of his gun in the Frenchman's mouth and says, "Shut the f*** up," and fires a round.
WINNER: US MARINE RECON
The experts believed that the US Marine Recons were deadlier due impart to their superior ranged attacks, as well as greater stealth.
Five US Navy SEALs are advancing on a French military compound. Little do they know that five French Naval Commandos are watching them. They already have a Claymore Mine set 50 feet away from the SEALs. A SEAL goes to scout ahead, and the Commandos activate the Claymore. He is blown to kingdom come.
The rest of the SEALs rush to the door of the compound before the Commandos can activate anymore mines. The leader places C-4 on the door. A Commando inside goes to get his UMP45, but then the door explodes and falls on top of him.
The Commandos grab their guns and a firefight begins. A SEAL flanks the Commandos and kills one with his TDI Vector Kriss.
The Commando leader turns around and kills the SEAL with his FAMAS F1.
The rest of the French Commandos retreat and go in different rooms. Two SEALs enter a room and they are met with gunfire with the leader of the Naval Commandos. He kills one with his FAMAS.
Meanwhile, the SEAL leader rushes into a room and shoots one Commando with his M4A1 and stabs the other with his Gerber Mark 2.
The French Naval Commando leader and the last SEAL empty their guns and draw their knives. The SEAL tries a thrust and misses. The Naval Commando quickly tackles the SEAL and slashes his throat open.
The Commando leader goes back to the main room and grabs a UMP45,( He didn't die like the last guy who grabbed a UMP). He searches and sees the SEAL leader. The SEAL presses a button on a switch and the ceiling explodes over the French Naval Commando, killing him.
"Glad I always keep extra C-4 with me." he says. He then walks away to mourn his comrades.
WINNER: US NAVY SEALS
In a landslide of 3,128 US Navy SEALs to 2,872, French Naval Commandos, the experts agreed that the SEALs more diverse training and better weapons gave them the victory. Everyone voted for the SEALs, including myself.
