    Fucking most unrealistic show EVER


    Okay...

    1. Green Beret are US Military Special Forces, so, I guess they must be going for Russian Military Spetsnaz in this too.

    The Red Berets

    are Internal Spetsnaz, they are police or FSB, not military.

    Which is not to say they ain't tough. Photos on this site show what candidates have to go through to win the right to wear a Red Beret: ?? ????? ???????????? ????????????: ????????? ???? ????????? ?????? | ??? ???????

    But, if we are being factual, and putting two military special forces units against each other, you must be thinking of Spetsnaz units under GRU (General Intelligence Command, Russian military intel). GRU's Spetsnaz is closely affiliated with the Airborne Troops (VDV) where majority of their candidates come from too. So, their men mostly wear VDV Blue Berets


    But,

    2. Regardless even of that, how fucking unprofessional and clueless do you (makers of this show) think spetsnaz troops are, that they would wear brightly colored Berets, Red or Blue, to a real battle? To make it easier for the enemy to see them and pick them off?

    One of the things those guys are heavily trained in is how to camouflage and conceal themselves, for God's sake



    For that one, clearly an urban warfare type mission, they'd probably dress something like this

    (That's Spetsnaz GRU in South Ossetia or Georgia, in August 2008)

    3. Not knowing a lot about US SEALs, can't say if the Spetsnaz would win, in real life, as they did in the video. Just impossible to predict, really, who'd come out on top in that one. But, would be a helluva fight, for sure

    Cool thread to bring back to life, so I will give it a try lol

    Okay, three of the greatest ancient warriors:

    1. Hercules

    Greatest warrior in ancient Greece, Demigod (son of a God), monster slayer, superhuman strength, oh, and did I mention, son of a God? The Superman + Captain America of his day, basically hehe
    Hercules - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    2. Beowulf

    According to the legends, the most badass Viking (or Geat, apparently related but not the same...) who ever lived. 'Nuff said lol
    Beowulf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    3. Ilya of Murom

    The scariest man in ancient Russia, during the war for freedom against the Mongols. Said to have been like 8 feet tall, and strong as 100 men, threw puny Mongols, Tatars, Polovtsy, etc, around like rag dolls (you can see one poor little fucker hogtied to his belt there lmao), fought and defeated whole armies of them.

    So, who comes out on top? Who'd be the last man standing?

    I SAW THAT VERY EPISODE.

    My buddy was watching it as well, and said "DAMN, the Green Berets woulda beat those Russians!"

    I said, "Ummm no. Not the Spetsnaz. In fact, that really was not a fitting contest. It sould have been the SEALS Vs. Spetsnaz.

    (GOOFY as hell, conclusion, also: Didn't the Spetsnaz defeat the Beret with some kind of trick, spring-loaded knife????)

    Those are good shows, but, quite often, they put warriors from different times in there. (While the Spartan was likely the most ferocious and true Warrior in human history, I do not think he could stand against a Samurai and his superior weaponry. That is like sending a Minuteman to fight a Soldier from the Nazi SS......)

    My prediction, SEALs win, but with a lot of losses on their side too. Probably only one guy alive in the end

    As for the knife, knife combat IS an important part of Spetsnaz training

    They don't like to rely on guns as much as Americans do Sometimes, in a situation where there is a fight in close quarters, or stealth and silence is required, a knife can be better.

    HG wins.. she'll shoot Batman in the head while he's still mumbling on about their traumatic childhood.

    I agree...Hitgirl kicks Batman's ass.

    Just like Catwoman consistently does.....(The Bat has a weakness for ladies...crazed, clown-villains, no problem. But women...)

    Batman. Batman was trained by Liam Neeson. Hit-Girl was trained by Nic Cage.
