Everyone has wondered how the forces of different nations around world would fair if pitted against each other in some sort of competition. Thankfully, the History Channel brought this to life in their series “The Ultimate Soldier Challenge.”
In this episode, members of the U.S. Army Rangers were pitted against some of the British Royal Air Force Regiment forces.
For those unaware, here is a little bit about the Royal Air Force Regiment:
The ground fighting force of the Royal Air Force. The RAF Regiment provides a range of Force Protection effects underpinned by its air-minded ground fighting capabilities. Whilst providing Force Protection throughout the world for UK Air Asset, the RAF Regiment maintains high-readiness, flexible and increasingly potent contingent capability, be that from Tactical Air Control Parties, contributions to Special Forces operations (Special Forces Support Group), Joint Counter-Terrorism Training and Advisory Group or Delivering the core CBRN for UK defence.
Our Corps is a diverse organization that provides internationally recognised first-rate worldwide Force Protection to UK air assets. Our Officers and Gunners have been deployed on operational service every day since our formation in 1942 and have a proud history that is best characterized by the Regiment’s motto ‘Per Ardua’ – Through Adversity.
There is also a third “rogue” squad that both teams have to contend with – made up of U.S. and Russian special forces.
Trust us, this will be the most entertaining 42 minutes you’ll have all week!
