Post your predictions.

Show is starting just now.

My money is on the US rangers, just because of Deadliest Warrior's track record for having a bit of an American bias.

Lol, I still remember when I first showed you this show. I think it was the SWAT vs. GSG9 episode.

You wouldn't even finish the episode and you were getting real mad.

damn it, you took the post from right under me :[. haha anyways, I was with Rangers all the frickn' way. I don't care how tough your terrain may be, you don't beat the US of A. And look, I was correct!

At first, I thought it was strange to give a huge advantage to the North Koreans right off the bat with the whole "home turf" thing, but then I realized that would be the ONLY conceivable manner in which the stupid commis could beat us. So it was like giving a handicapped kid a head start. Too bad that head start can't beat superior tactics, training, technology, and experience. Rangers Lead the Way!

Yeah, to be fair, that was one of the worst episodes ever done.

I understand but aren't they sort of the same? They're both Police forces that deal with similar situations. What I found sort of strange was the addition of non lethal weapons. I understand the purpose of police forces is to save lives therefore non lethal weapons are used. But if you're gonna pit them to the death, why even bother?

SWAT is a paramilitary group comprised usually of policemen of varying training and experience, while GSG-9 is the German equivalent of Delta Force, for the most part. They're recruited from the German army, have much more intense training, better equipment, and in CS 1.6 they had desert camo helmet cover (I couldn't come up with a third thing).

ahahahaha i like that CS part. Anyways, I see what you're talking about now. However is GSG9 really Germany's Delta Force? I thought that was the KSK or the Kommando Spezialkräfte?

In terms of their skillset and mission, DevGru (seal team 6) is probably a better comparison to GSG-9 than Delta. Either way you probably get the point of why we think comparing them to SWAT is so silly. If you had to compare them to a US non-military unit, they should have chosen the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team. GSG-9 is an elite counter terrorism unit and much, much, much closer to DevGru or Delta in capability than SWAT.

Agreed, FBI HRT would be the better choice.
