Good USMC Special Forces Motivational Video

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Some ancient footage mixed in from my war as well at 5:30, 6:30 and 7:15 Linky

    This was also one of the insertion techniques we used for 4 man teams. Aircraft would go into a steep dive and pull up at 900' or so and stick would merely slide out the rear. Good for accuracy.

  2. JJH why do you insist in posting these in the NAAFI we just can’t help ourselves, I thought slipping out the rear was SOP for USMC
  3. Hah! I wondered how long it would take.... We said and heard just about all the jokes on that at the time.

    Amazing bit at 1:37 when the chap who has jumped out of a plane flaps his arms and flies upwards. How d'ye do that? And is that a pack or a parachute he is wearing? My guess is a pack, 'cos once you know how to fly, why would you need a chute?

    Nothing wrong with the short-range shooting, just a pity they didn't show us the subsequent bayonet charge on the targets.
  14. Unless it is raining
  15. I can't help but feel puzzled about the way they seem to loiter around in their killing house in the video. So much for speed, aggression, surprise...

    He doesn't fly upwards, he just slows his descent with respect to the one filming him.
