Not coz its oldest but its a bad ass unit.I don’t know what’s the difference between 9 Para and other Para SF units like 1,2,3,4,10,11,12 and 21. At the end of the day, they are all Para SF so they must have gone through same probation as everyone else. Also, I don’t expect attitude of a 4 Para operator to be different from 9 Para. Maybe cuz 9 Para is the oldest, they are revered but in practical terms, I don’t see the difference.
Why is it bad ass...simple high adrenaline combat experience.
The operator was saying that in the last 14 years in 9 Para he spent 9.5 in combat.He did not see civilised life for 1 year and 8 months and had a difficult time adjusting.
This sort of combat is unheard of in any other SF and even in Para SF is a lot which is very over deployed.
No disrespect just an example..Is there a difference between a pitbull who stays in a mansion and a pitbull who is into street fightings?
Both are pitbulls..but characters are different.
Look at his attitude..he said i respect Seals but what we do they cannot.I can kill people when i m naked in the snow..Seals wont survive.
Many will not agree but this is not surprising.Our AF pilots winning dog fights with US or our SF operators being tough is not surprising for me.
However in a war US will win because of the ecosystem they have for war.
When you lack technology you have to make up for in physicals..thats how it is.
