Deadliest Warrior : Gurkhas VS Warrior French Foreign Legion

Deadliest Warrior : Gurkhas VS Warrior French Foreign Legion

GURKHAS ARE NOT MERCENARIES. They are regular British soldiers! You do not have to be British to join the British Army, now or ever. You become British by serving.

Had it not been for the Tripartite Agreement, Gurkhas would have been termed as 'mercenaries'. In any case this allows the Nepalese to join either the British, Indian or Singapore military force. In Singapore's case the Gurkhas are treated no different than the regular mercenaries. However, Britain has been kind enough to treat them well.

In my humble opinion i would rather have a Gurkha beside me in combat then a Legionnaire why ? Its their sense of honour and duty plus the fact they are very good at fighting . The Legion apart from the officers are not French so if they lose who cares in France ?

Frankly speaking this video was complete filled of garbage! 1 gurkha is more than enough for 5 FFL. Other is In hand to Hand combat where FFL kills Ghurkha by hitting on neck was complete bullshit! I witnessed an incident where a retired gurkha soldier saves girl in Bengal from 8 people who were about to rape her! There one guy hold soldiers neck from behind & he just banged his bead with kukri! No one can Hold gurkha for more than one second!! THIS IS CLEARLY FAKE!

+Mahummad hassan At least we accept people for being gay if that's what they are. Indecent sows like the people of your country hate those people because you're all locked in the Dark Ages. Grow up, it's the 21st century. Just because a person isn't straight doesn't mean they are any less of a person. I'd be proud to represent homosexuality. I'm not gay myself, but a lot of my closest friends are.

do you mean the Youtube stabilization? Youtube automatically says "we detected that your video is shaky, do you want to stabilize it?", then stupid people click yes. It's not "SGI effects". SGI is "Silicon Graphics International", which is a technology company that provides hardware that is used by graphics companies in the film industry. So Avatar probably used SGI. This is just a stabilization effect. It's usually something that you apply to a single take or single cut in post processing.

Instead of yammering on for ages, it would be better to just spend the same time and have the guys switch weapons. That would show if the weapon is better or the individual fighter. The gurka would be better with the smaller gun just as he was better with the bigger, lower tech gun.

As an American I must say, our TV programs have become super annoying. I dont think there was a second where there wasnt some loud, obnoxious, overly dramatic music going on in the background. This show used to be a lot more realistic and tailored for a specific type of audience. Now it looks like the producers of American Idol came in took over the entire thing. I agree that the Gurkhas should have won, but not according to this "rating system". that "rating system" was nothing short of atrocious.

I  don't think these sort of things can be gauged. There are so many variables in a combat situation. I was an Army Medic in the Australian Regular Army back in 1984. When I was doing my First Aid training, there was a group of Australian SAS doing the exact same course as us, but in a different class. This SAS group had 2 Gurkhas in it as special guests I suppose. They were the nicest fellows a person could hope to meet. Very friendly & humble people. One night on our free time we decided to go to the local pub for some beers & to listen to the band playing. Well, little did we know that the local civilians hated us Army guys (they would call us Army Jerks) & thought it good sport to gang up on us. A few of us got beat up fairly badly. When we got back to our barracks the 2 Gurkha blokes took a look at us & became very mad, they asked us which hotel it was, that the fight had happened at & then took off. It was a good 15 kilometers to the pub from the Army base. They had jogged into town, went into the hotel & proceeded to clean up the pub. They must have been out numbered 10 to 1. Round about 2:00 am the police arrived at the base looking for them. The Duty Officer summoned all of us to the parade ground. Told the police if they could identify the culprits they could try to arrest them. The police never said another word & left. I think it was probably just as well for the police. Lol.

If you already have them at your mercy then why wait until they have a chance to fight back? Kill them all, avoid the fight altogether and retain your fighting strength.
Report spam or abuse
yes the first step is to strike fear in enemies heart and then strike .If you finish them all you have defeated a handfull of enemies but if you deliberately leave a few behinds then they will go back to their frens(AS IT MIGHT LEAD TO WINNING THE WAR THAN LITTLE HANDFULL BATTLES) and then the fresh army that we will be facing in the future will have knowledge about what kind of ppl they are dealing with but this has one negative effect as well. When the enemy learns  that they are facing a dangerous and strong enemy two things will happens mostly 1) the good one the enemy gets scared and lose their confidence because of fear and insecurities 2) the negative one the enemy could ignore the negative thoughts and think positively .Hence they might train harder ,be more alert and on guard  which might be quite a bad thing. SO the gurkhas make sure they are adaptable,flexible ,quick and smart in every forthcoming situation.

Big flaw in this analysis is that the BAR had a major flaw in combat.  It got hot.  It got very hot.  It was notorious for having a glowing barrel at night and drew a lot of heavy fire as it was a prime target, being such an effective killing machine.  It could not be fired continuously in long defensive battles or from the shoulder.  It was great on short assaults.  So the edge these people gave the BAR was not justified.  It was a great weapon in it's day but anyone using these in combat would tell you that they were useless when they over heated and presented an easy target after nightfall.  Foreign Legion relied on it's reputation to fight to the last man as a strategy. Gurkhas fought to live another day and fight again.  And as stated, very creative and improvisational in the battle field.  The Foreign Legion was defeated terribly in Viet Nam.  The Gurkhas would never be defeated using antiquated European tactics against the Viet Namese. 
Report spam or abuse
+JustVinnyBlues Interesting comment. I've never used a BAR but I've known many people that have. They mentioned none of the things in your comment. Would a glowing barrel not be easily remedied? I don't know, perhaps drape something non-flammable over the barrel? And are most rifles not useless if over-heated? Why could it not be fired from the shoulder? The weight? The recoil? The 7,62mm M14, FN FAL, G3 and others are fired from the shoulder. On full-auto. The British discarded their semi-auto FALs for the captured Argentine full-auto FALs in the Falklands. The 30-06 doesn't have much more, if any recoil, with the thing weighing 7.5kg to 11kg. Thanks.

Everyone pointing out how US marines performed in nam and Korea and ww2 and Iraq need to shut up. Look at the casualty rates for all those wars and you will see the marines fought bravely. The only reason America "lost" the Vietnam war was because of politics back home (not enough support for the war/too many hippies). Both Gurkhas and marines are great soldiers, and just because you see bad media about US soldiers raping women, or about how so many are dying, and how marines are raping women in the Middle East, etc, doesn't mean all of them are like that. There are so many marines who are good men and heroes who fought for the ideals of freedom and justice, but the news gets better ratings with bad stuff so you see that. Both Gurkhas and marines are good soldiers who fight hard so stop holding onto stereotypes on Americans or Asians or anyone for that matter and think about what you say before you post some prejudiced comment.
Report spam or abuse
+Jackson Keller I agree that both Gurkhas and marines are good soldiers with discipline. However rapes, robbing and stealing do tarnish the reputation of those fighting the war and the ones who were killed. The quality of soldiering can partly be measured by numbers killed by friendly fire. Being at war means trying not to be killed. US has alot of high tech weapons so they should be more effective in killing the enemies and NOT being killed themselves. The fact that alot of marines are killed in Vietnam does show that the VC were more effective soldiers.
