So Whos Better - The 82ND ABN Infantry or Brit Para INF?

#1
Equal? One better than the other? What?

I know eveyone here will be completely unbias... so, please offer your personal opinions.

By the way - it would help a ton if you would state whether you were a para or not. Thanks a mil.

Airborne All the Way.

Do we need an airborne role? Just re-role as line infantry.

I am now consulting the people who protected Salman Rushdie and arranging to 'drop-out' of the scene.

One is a Division. the other is two Battalions with another helping Them. So, ten thousand or so vs. 1800?

About evens, I'd say.

:D

( I'm chairborne, not airborne. )

We have troops on the ground in more countries that UK or US. However, we are clearly not designed for airborne operations (I would need a BIIG parachute) so we cannot be considered in this fight.
