Thai Seals !

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:

    One member of the Thai motorcycle club I know, was in the first bunch of Thai Marines to do the First SEAL course back in the Vietnam War days.
    He was employed as the Senior Bankguard in CM for Thailand's largest bank.
    Always carried a snub nose .38 Special revolver, legally, even when officially off duty.
    He was licensed to do so and like many old men swore by a revolver which he maintained you could use underwater.
    He received a monthly allowance on ammo for training purposes.
    I never saw him shoot but some of the other lads said he never missed.

    What are you babbling about, man? Clearly, the waters off Thailand are far too warm for seals...

    ...oh. THAT kind of seal.
     
  3. Do they have an Underwater Knife Fighting Cadre?
     
  4. Thats why the S&W 586/686 was called Combat Masterpiece
     
  5. I thought Porridge Gun had moved to foreign shores

    Is that them getting a whipping lying on the ground??
     
  6. some one will be reporting that the wet branch of THEM are getting out the penguin suits again...

    Was that special underwater ammo? What did he shoot at, fish :?
     
  8. Most ammo's pretty waterproof, as long as you dont leave it submerged for too long. Actually, its not just revolvers that can be fired underwater, but obviously, owing to their design, they void themselves of air freely, unlike autos.
     
  9. They must be good. The Barron trained some of them!

    In 2005, IBA training was provided to the Thai National Police and Royal Thai Navy SEALS. Last year, the Mongolian Government organized an IBA course for their Special Forces,

    Thailand is famous for it's tight seals.

    Some of them are natural too.
     
  12. Hey, I didn't say they performed well, only that you can fire them underwater. :)
     
  13. I enjoyed the 3rd pic. Like training used to be! Reminds me of the 3rd termers picking on the NIGs at any JLR regiment!
     
  14. I swear most Thais don't breathe underwater... They'd come up after a long dive, we'd all be on 50 bar or less and most of them would have 150+

    This breathing technique is an evolutional change brought on by years of swallowing Farang hampton.
