Your gun takes up a large part of the screen.
By reducing its size and by altering its position you’ll have greater visibility. I’ll be going
through all of the separate commands in this video, but if you just want to take my word
for it and use my config, skip to near the end, you can find the contents menu for this
video in the description. The choice you have for changing the gun model
in the options menu is… underwhelming. Go to Game Settings and down to ‘Viewmodel Position’.
This will give you a choice between two fairly similar settings and COUCH which makes it
take up even more of the screen. Do console gamers need a bigger gun model or something?
Looks like we need to resort to console commands. cl_righthand 0 as opposed to 1 will make your
player left-handed, as if that makes much of a difference.
The four that change the position and look of the weapons are:
viewmodel_offset_x which can be set between -2 and 3
viewmodel_offset_y which can be between -2 and 2
viewmodel_offset_z which is also -2 to 2, I’d say that this is the most important one
to set to -2 since 2 is clearly impractical and somewhat… worrying.
viewmodel_fov which can be between 54 and 68, the lower the better in my opinion since
you see more of the gun rather than your hand and it’s tucked closer to the side of the
screen, depending on your other settings chosen. There are some other commands that let you
change the movement. I don’t honestly see these as ever making much of a difference
to your gaming ability, and in fact think that it’s more of a signature you could use.
You know, like when you upload frag video clips people will be all like ‘Oh that 3kliksphilip
dude has a REALLY bouncy gun model LOLOLOL’ Any way, here are the settings.
cl_bob_lower_amt 5 to 30. This alters how far back the gun goes when moving. I quite
like this for visibility. cl_bobamt_lat 0 to 2. the larger the value,
the more stupidly the gun moves side to side. cl_bobamt_vert 0 to 2. This is the same as
the previous command, only a large number here makes it bob stupidly up and down.
cl_bobcycle 0.98, unfortunately this can’t be changed, I’m guessing that this determines
the animation speed. cl_viewmodel_shift_left_amt 0.5 to 2. This
one determines how much your gun moves sideways when you’re aiming more precisely. In other
words, when you crouch. cl_viewmodel_shift_right_amt 0.5 to 2 chooses
how far over to the right of the screen your gun travels as you’re shooting and moving
quickly. It’s a shame that it resets to default settings
every time you load up CS:GO. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the game save them for you?
For this you need to make an autoexec file! I’ll save you the hassle and will make one
for you. Download it in the description of this video. Make your way to the CFG folder
for CS:GO and place the autoexec.cfg file inside. Next, open up the config.cfg file-
when it asks you which program you’d like to use, choose notepad. All of these cfgs
are txt files in disguise. Type at the end: ‘exec autoexec’ then save and close the file.
Now, right-click on the config file and make it ‘read-only’ otherwise it will simply delete
the new bit every time the game loads. And there you have it- a smaller looking gun
on the screen. Well done.
Every movie fan has their favorite genre,
be it action, adventure, horror, or award-winning drama. But it�s the stories of those who
take up arms to defend a nation that can capture every one of those strengths. War films combine
all these elements into tales of survival and heroism that, when done right, can stand
as lasting memorials for decades. Here are Screen Rant�s 5 Best Military Movies of
All Time. Black Hawk Down When two American Black Hawk helicopters were
shot down in enemy territory in 1993, the rescue slowly turned from an hour long mission
into an overnight siege. The Battle of ” Mogadishu” would be re-told in Ridley Scott�s Black
Hawk Down, dropping audiences into the confusion, the endless firefights, and the incredible
bravery that managed to save the mission. The battle made headlines at home, but the
movie showed that hearing about combat is nothing compared to seeing it up close. Apocalypse Now Francis Ford Coppola�s epic war story may
have been a nightmare to film, but he couldn�t have known how influential Apocalypse Now
would eventually become. When an American army colonel goes rogue during the Vietnam
War, a soldier is given orders to track him down, and kill him. The movie isn�t based
on any real events of the War. Instead it’s an updated version of the story found in the
famous novel “Heart of Darkness.” Apocalypse Now has more to say about the horrors of war
and humanity in general than Vietnam in particular, and it’s seen today as one of the greatest
films ever made. Platoon Unlike other war movie directors, Oliver Stone
actually served in the Vietnam War � making Platoon a more realistic story, even if it
is fiction. The film was based on real battles and soldiers he saw firsthand. Stone�s commitment
to realism meant putting the cast through real military training. He even launched explosive
attacks while they slept to leave them as worn out as he had been during the war. In
the end, the movie�s story of one man�s loss of innocence spoke to an entire generation,
and Platoon became a classic for military fans looking for realism, not just spectacle. Full Metal Jacket “Vietnam can kill me, but it can’t make me
care.” The movie�s tagline tells you all you need to know about its view of the Vietnam
War, following a single platoon from basic training to the actual combat. Director Stanley
Kubrick focused almost entirely on the insanity and dark humor war makes possible, and he
explored what killing can actually do to the average person. Making the case that not every
war is glorious – or even rational � the movie�s message is summed up perfectly by
the Marines� unforgettable battle song: Saving Private Ryan A squad of soldiers heading through World
War 2-era France to find just one private sounds like a small story, but Saving Private
Ryan was anything but. The movie begins with a massive re-enactment of the Omaha Beach
assault. Director Steven Spielberg used more than 1,000 extras to capture the scale and
intensity of the D-Day invasion in this 27-minute long sequence; and it was just the beginning.
The story that followed recreated the war in detail, with many veterans stating it was
as close to the actual battles as possible. The movie renewed interest in the war, and
forever changed how it would be shown on film � ensuring its place as arguably the greatest
war movie ever made. Conclusion So what do you think of our list? Did we miss

what’s up karate nerds I’m Jesse from karate by Jesse calm and in today’s video I’m gonna teach you how to use one of the weirdest weapons of Okinawan Kabuto that you’ll ever see the aigoo now this weapon right here the a coup or an or as we call it in English is considered the most sophisticated and ultimate weapon of Okinawan Kabuto which is the art of using karate ancient weapons for self-defense as you might imagine the original purpose of the a coup was to be used as an orb by fishermen or people living in or around the beach however today the acre is mainly used for the dragon boat races in okinawa known as Hadi that being said back in the days it was a deadly weapon as well and this is what I want to teach you in today’s video you see there is a very interesting secret technique that can only be done with the a cou known as soon a cocky and I’m gonna teach it to you right here but before we start with the actual technical aspects of the a qu let me just tell you a little bit about it I remember one time when I was leaving Okinawa after one of my dozens of trips there I had bought an a qu and I was at the airport and the customs officer asked me what it was in the package and I tried to tell him it’s an acre in my best Japanese because I had been studying Japanese at university but he still didn’t understand me I was like it’s an aigoo in the package but then I realized aigoo is not a Japanese word it’s the Okinawan language because in Japanese this is called something else hi that being said we usually tend to pronounce it the Okinawan way which she Noguchi as they call it which is the old language from the birthplace of karate a Kuh but there are several ways of writing the term for this for example the COO is another common way of spelling the weapon’s name or simply a COO or a COO or even with two E’s you get the point the idea is that the pronunciation is almost similar in all of these cases the one I prefer to use is that one now to do the secret Sunna a technique that I want to show you today first you need to understand there are three very important ways that you can hold the a queen and this is true for all weapons not just the or the first rib is hold mo g which is the natural grip it looks like this one thumb up here one thumb down this is the basic way that you would use the ball for example the staff however keep in mind that the ape who has an off-center weight due to its shape so that makes the mechanics a little bit different the second grip is the reverse grip known as Yakutia mochi in Japanese Yakutia means reverse hand so in this way both of your hands are facing the same direction now you could use this part for example to block and then strike with that part because usually what you want to do with the Aiko is not blocked with the blade you want to block with the flat side or this side and then strike with a sharp edge the third and last way to grip the Aiko is known as top shoe mochi in Japanese and that means this special grip and like I said all weapons have these three different types of grips with the Aiko the special grip looks like this this is what you would use if you’re further away from the opponent and need to take advantage of that space right so we have one two and three ways of gripping the egg now before I show you the sunnah kaki technique let’s just talk about who uses the a GU well these days the Aiko is mainly used in two very specific styles of kaboodle the first is known as Matayoshi Kabuto and you can always recognize them because they have the black jacket and then we have the Tyler or UQ caboodle which is the one that I originally started with which also uses the a GU now naturally there are other styles of Kabuto that utilized the a coup but these are the two major ones oh and if you’re wondering about kata there are only a handful of a coup Kappa still preserved today I know four and there are not that many more actually all right so it’s finally time for the sacred technique that I promised to show you soon Akaka Sunnah means sand in Japanese not sue net which is the shin bone right if you would block with your shin bone like the Thai boxers do that’s that sooner okay but this is Sunnah kaka kaka means to flick so we’re trying to flicks with the a coup and slowly the idea if I just show you is to lift your foot or place your foot behind the other foot because you don’t want to hurt yourself in the process because you’re gonna bid the a coup down imagine there’s sand beneath my feet and then from this position all I do is I flick the sand up as if there is an attacker in front of me and I wanna temporarily blind him so that he gets the sand in his eyes and naturally this response of when somebody throws sand in your face means that it opens up an opportunity for me to attack you drop back scoop up the sand and trust if you have a nice wooden floor like here try not to stab the floor alright because they will leave marks especially if it’s your own dojo so you go back here imagine scooping up some sand and you go after this one as we drop down so you have a base of support under you in your deep sumo stance flick the sand in the face and you go back naturally this could be to the throat as well higher up that’s not oh in Japanese and make sure that the echo is in this direction and not this direction as it’s easier to miss or if you want to dig in beneath or under or between the ribs you want it to be in this position as well you drop back scoop up the sand and thrust and that is the secret technique of the a coup soon a cocky [Music]
Oh the holidays! What a wonderful time of year! The lights, the Christmas presents. But don’t forget kids, the holidays aren’t about, y’know, getting gifts. The holidays are really all about sitting down, y’know, with your loved ones And watching Fallout 4 mod reviews on YouTube and pressing that like button Roll the intro [intro music]
[Fallout 4 Main Theme plays] So just last week, we saw a mod that turned the Boston Wasteland into an Amazonian rainforest. It also turns out that that guy’s a thief and now he’s now banned, but anyways So this next mod, not only brings back the wildlife to the wasteland, but it also introduces seasons. That’s right, we’re talking thyme, paprika, cayenne… Okay just kidding. No, we’re talkin’ like Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall. So one of the first things I noticed when I spliced these clips together is how so many trees seem to disappear from Spring to Autumn. Y’know the Fall just reminds me a lot of the ‘Divine Revelation’ mod Y’know huge, bulky, Lord-of-the-Rings type trees sprouting everywhere, you know, in the middle of streets, through straight concrete, whereas the other seasons are just simply a change in the color of the leaves. The Fall actually looks surprisingly similar to Divine Rev- Now that I think about it, this might actually be Divine Revelation except in Autumn form and now that I read his mod description over again apparently he did use assets from Divine Revelations that were stolen, that he then got permission from to use, so this is indeed the Fall version of Divine Revelation. And in case you do not know, no the seasons do not change in game in real time. You do need to leave the game to switch out the seasons. Is it immersion breaking? Yes it is, but it can’t be helped. When dynamically-changing seasons are a thing, that is when we’ll know when modding has reached it’s final form. But, I don’t think we’re quite there yet and again, this is a very early version All seasons are still at V1. The leaves do look a little bit weird, like they’re kind of flat. I’m not sure if these leaves are the same leaves as before the bomb dropped but he did mention that he will improve the leaf textures in future updates. It’s a season mod. It changes your seasons. You want to play in Winter time? You can do it now. Anything is possible. What a time to be alive. Holy crap. This cannot be happening. Build-a-bear in Fallout 4. Darren Productions, you are a god. This is the ‘Wasteland Build A Bear,’ the mod you didn’t know you desperately needed. So there’s now a new category called ‘Build A Bear’ under your furniture section. You begin by setting up a base. There’re about five different bears to choose from, y’know, all different colors. There’s one for everybody, right. There’s a black one for, like… people who like black bears Right, there’s a rainbow one for people who like… like, like, rainbows and stuff And they’re incredibly durable, they sound like hunks of metal when you place them down. *thunk* But they’re actually made of wood… according to my bullet decals. But according to Darren, these bears are actually radios. That’s right he’s made them radios so that you should be able to place them anywhere like radios. Unfortunately, they do not place like radios. I had to use the ‘Place in Red’ mod to put them on my counters. But he’s also included a separate category of chairs and furniture that allow the bears to snap right on. So now, once you have your base bear, it’s now time to accessorize. There are a bunch of glasses to choose from. From the funky, to the nerdy, to the badass. You can give them all kinds of Nuka Colas, a newspaper, the ‘Publick Occurrences,’ the ‘Boston Bugle,’ y’know, all law-friendly objects No strapons. Right? No strapons And you can give them different hats you know, different rifles and guns, fucking milk and a dumbbell. That build-a-bear’s making all kinds of gains, right, all kinds… Father, forgive him, for these gains he is about to receive. Point is guys, whatever type of person you are, whatever shit you’re into, you can build a bear that’s perfect for you. Is that like build-a-bear’s slogan? It should be This mod is pretty much everything I never knew I wanted. You know, they just look great, adorable. Custom decoration for your home. So robots have always been a staple in all Fallout games. You know, whenever you break into somebody’s house, you’re always getting shot at by a robot. But why is it that you’re not allowed to have robots in your own home. Right? How funny is it- Well it’s not funny anymore because somebody has made a mod for that. And it is called ‘Robot Home Defence.’ So now, with this mod, you have a new robot section in your defense category where you can build protectrons, general atomic robots, assaultrons, as well as sentry bots. Pretty much every type of robot in this game you can now construct, with, of course, fair material requirements as well as perk requirements. All of the robots will require that you be a robotics expert and they all require at least one fusion core. The higher end robots, like sentry bots, will require multiple fusion cores, right, up to four, and a level three in robotics expert. And of course, not all of these robots are meant for defense. The Miss Nanny’s and Mr Handy’s can be built to increase the happiness of your settlement. Forget my settlers, just having these guys walk around in my settlement makes me happy because I freakin’ love these little robot dudes. Right, you also have the utility protectrons that go out and scavenge for parts as well as protectron brewers that will supply your settlements with food and water. Then it was time to put them to the test. How would they defend the settlement against ten deathclaws? [‘Rudolf, The Red-Nose Reindeer’ plays] And the answer’s pretty fuckin’ well, except for this Miss Nanny. [sad music sample plays] But then I said “You know what, we need to kick it up a notch” and we’re doing twenty deathclaws. [‘Rudolf, The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ plays] And the results were pretty much the same except the Miss Nanny and sentry bot are on fire. Unfortunately, there is no way to repair them currently. You can, however, mod your wrench with a roboticist’s mod that he’s added that allows you to heal your robots when you strike them with it. But also, keep in mind these aren’t actually over powered. I just had a ton of robots there. When compared to the vanilla turrets, they actually compare pretty evenly, and I would say this mod is definitely very balanced. However, because of the adorableness factor, I would take these robots over the turrets any day. Or use them both, you know, variety is the spice of life. Have you ever wanted to turn any weapon into a Fat Man? Yeah? Then you might wanna get this next mod. This is ‘Any Mod Any Weapon,’ because why shouldn’t I be allowed to put a broadsider receiver on my pistol? That’s this mod in a nutshell. When you go into your crafting menu and you choose a mod slot, you can now choose from every single mod that exists in the game for that particular slot. So machine guns can now have beam splitters if you wanted, you know, so be it. Even though there were probably thousands and thousands of different combinations of mods, I always found myself going straight for the MIRV launcher, the ‘Two Shot Legendary’ mod, the ‘Targeting Computer,’ and basically turning every single weapon I own into a B2 bomber that never misses [sounds of explosion] Cause lets face it, most mods are like… better recoil, increased accuracy. Hmm, better recoil or B2 bomber that never misses? But who knows, there might be other combinations that I just haven’t tried yet that might even be more exciting than this B2 bomber that I’ve made. You know, the possibilities are endless. You’re only restricted by your imaginati- and the game’s engine as well. You know, lots of these mods, just because you change the receiver does not mean the weapon’s gonna fire like the receiver that you just put on. You know, and lots of these weapons you make are obviously gonna look very ridiculous but that’s the fun of it all. Bethesda tells us we can’t do this, so we go ahead and we do it. That’s just how the modding community works. Bethesda says you can’t take off the underwea- BOOM! Nude mods as far as the eye can see. And that is it for this week guys. Hope you enjoyed all the mods featured in this episode. Hope you guys all have a merry Christmas and I’ll see you guys later. PEACE! If you don’t have Fallout 4 yet, check out G2A.com and use my code ‘MXR’ Link in the description below. [Outro music]
🎵Baby you know I’m guilty🎵 🎵Cops, judge and jury🎵 🎵They all agree 🎵
Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome back to our California motorcycle adventure. We are in Paso Robles. Bikes are packed up, and we’re going to grab a coffee before today’s adventure starts. You might know as of summer 2017, the road to Big Sur, the PCH, is closed on both the north and the south. A lot of people think it’s impossible to get there, but there is a way, and we’re going to show it to you by taking the following steps. Let’s go. First step: caffeine. Most people are assuming that Big Sur is closed because of landslides that took out the bridges up in the north and also mudslides closer to the south. There’s a ton of parts that are closed and restricted to only local traffic. However, there is a road called the Furgeson Naciamento Road that we’re going to try to take today. It should drop us down a really narrow canyon and put us right out on the coast. Hopefully, we can have it to ourselves. Big Sur is all about solitude, which is a rare commodity these days. Brother, are you ready for another great day riding? Let’s do it, Bro. G-40 I liked Paso Robles. Me too. It’s chill. A bit bousi for my taste. I prefer the wine culture of Santa Ynez. San Luis Obispo so far sticks out to me as one of the best places that we’ve been. Well, it’s just a younger crowd. They have the university there, and they have a lot of the same things that Paso Robles has, but just catering towards more of our demographic. Look at these houses, though. Look at this, Dude. This place, Paso Robles, developed a lot in the 1920s. There was a pianist, a Polish pianist, who helped cultivate wine and bring this on the national, an international reputation as a wine destination, in addition to being the natural hot springs that it always was. Today we are heading out of Paso Robles, making our way to Big Sur. Problem is that the highway is closed, like we said. So, we’re taking a back route through the mountains, through an army base. We’ve heard from other motorcyclist that it’s a really, really fun road…. very remote, and I’m looking forward to it. I think that it’s one of those situations where what might seem like a road block is actually an invitation to get off the beaten path, to try a new way there and in the process, hopefully, discover something even better. Confucius once said that open roads are meant for journeys, not destinations. Let’s go on a journey. All right, you guys. We’ve just pulled over to the one store out here in the middle of nowhere. We’re at Lockwood. It’s 90 + degrees right now. Seems like all the motorcyclist are doing the same thing, pulling over, getting some shade. How are you feeling? Trying to figure out where the next gas station is because I don’t think there is one until we get to Big Sur. Use one of your little spares. We have fuel reserves that we’re going to have to use to get over the mountain. It’s cool. This is like a really……. I really enjoy this section of the ride because it’s kind of like……….. I never knew that this part of California existed. The mountain range is inland from the coast, but the climate is different. It’s hot. It’s dry. There ‘re oaks, ranches It’s just a different vibe. Just on the other side is Big Sur and the Pacific Coast Highway. It’s cool Check this out. Jesus is alive. That guy’s bike set off that person’s car alarm. Got to fill up on water. There’re no stops until Big Sur, and it’s like 100 degrees right now. Get it while you can. Looks like we’ve just entered Fort Hunter Liggett. This is a U.S Army base. Welcome to Fort Hunter Liggett. Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve just stumbled upon this awesome mission. Mission San Antonio de Padua right next to Fort Hunter Liggett, actually on Fort Hunter Liggett. Apparently, it’s the third mission in California. We grew up next to the first one, which is in San Diego. It just shows you that the interior of California, back in the day, was really integral to this ranching culture, which formed the history of early California. At one point there were 1300 natives from the Salinas tribe here with the missionaries, and this was basically a large ranch. It’s such a trip to discover this. It’s right off the military base. If we hadn’t had this detour, there’s no way we would have found it. Beautiful place. Got to come back. It’s all being restored and earthquake proof so it should be around for another couple hundred years. Go take a little walk through here, but continue on to Big Sur. We’ve been driving up the road a little bit, and we’ve just found this beautiful little river. It’s super hot today, so……. should we take a swim? I’m doing it. There’re tons of wasps, and I just got stung twice. It’s hard to meditate when you’re getting stung, but after four days on the road, this is the day when I really feel we are sinking into the moment, really appreciating the here and now, not worrying about what comes next, what happened in the past, just being present. Even though I’m swarmed by bugs, it’s still nice to be here. We’ve just crested the peak, and we’ve just passed a sign that says Road Closed 6 Miles Ahead on 1. Although we can see Big Sur in the distance, it’s shrouded in clouds and mystery. We don’t know really what lies ahead. We know that we can get down there, but we’re not sure how much of the coast that we can explore. What a magical place, honestly. I love this part of California…… Big Sur, the geography. These mountains are so rugged that there’s really only one way in and out, especially now that the PCH is blocked off from the north and the south. There is only one way in and out. I cannot wait to get down there and to soak it all in. This is my favorite place in California. First sight: the PCH Yes. Now we’ve made it to the end of the road. Our adventure has not ended. We need to go get some gas; we’ve got to go get some food, then we’ve got to go find somewhere to sleep. Not to mention there’s still 10 miles of coastline to explore. Let’s hop on the bikes and see what else we can find here in Big Sur. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen We slept like babies. We’re totally soaked. We’re pretty much in a cloud, still. Fog that rolled in yesterday has yet to lift so everything is totally soaked. Cheers. Bro. Coffee cheers. Boom. Cheers. We made it. Can you believe it? I can. I need my bike Rocinante because I was not sure whether to try to take her beyond Los Angeles was an exotic dream or whether it was possible, but it’s actually totally capable of traveling long distance. And I can go super far, and it just makes me look at my bike as a vehicle that can take me all the way around the world. I really had a great time with my brother. Rediscovered the joy of motorcycle travel, which I have not felt since almost 10 years ago traveling through Vietnam. Discovered so much of our home state. It’s just been an amazing experience. So thank you, Alex, for getting the idea together to go travel by motorbike together. Thank you Marko for finally saying “yes” because I feel like I’ve been pestering you and annoying you for at least a year now. What was your favorite part? Favorite part……..I think probably the roads out behind Santa Barbara in the Santa Ynez… that kind of ridgeline road where you had views of the mountains to the inland and the coast off to the left, and then also back in Jalama Beach area was gorgeous. Honestly, there’s just nothing better than the freedom of two wheels and the fact that we got to get out on bikes together and explore our home state of California and take all you guys and girls with us. It makes me so happy. I just want to keep doing it. I want to keep going. I don’t want to end it here. We’d love to hear from all you guys and girls out there in the comment section. If you enjoyed this series, please let us know. This is something we definitely want to continue doing. We should give a big thanks to all the companies that helped us make this possible: to Sena for the audio bluetooth video connection; to Tobacco jeans for our jeans with Kevlar, Pack Animal for my saddle bags, and Rev’it for hooking up Alex’s jacket. All right ladies and gentlemen, that’s where we’re going to end it. Hopefully, if you’ve enjoyed this video, this series, make sure you subscribe to our channel and turn on notifications. Give this video a big thumbs-up, and drop a comment and let us know what you thought. In the meantime, stay curious, keep exploring, and we’ll see you guys on the road. Peace.
I think the misconception with military
working dogs is that they’re just a tool but I believe canines are a really
important asset to the Marine Corps because as far as explosive detection
capabilities go it’s the best option out there. This is military working dog Baldr
is a patrol explosive detection dog so he’s able to do bite work as well as
find explosives. Being a k-9 handler changed me as a person because it’s a
living being that you have to take care of it’s trying to work with these dogs
can be frustrating sometimes but it definitely teaches you patience. The bond that you build with them is really how you’re gonna be able to work
in mesh with the dog so they’re more than just a piece of equipment this is probably best job in the Marine
Corps if not best job in the world.
On today’s Star Wars factions compared episode We’ll be examining the special forces units of the four main prequel and original trilogy factions Hey guys, this is Eckart’s letter Hello and welcome to another episode of factions Compared to see previous episodes in this series to get an idea of what we’re doing here Make sure to check the link down in the description specifically though today We are talking about the special forces arms of the Galactic Republic the Rebel Alliance The Galactic Empire and the Confederacy of Independent Systems first. We’ll take a look at each faction and then at the end We’ll rank them from best to worst, but I’m curious before watching the video, which one of these factions Do you think has the best Special Forces units take a second and vote in the upper right hand corner right now? Let’s get started with a look at the Galactic Empire And I’m not going to lie besides for last episode the Empire has had sort of a rough go during this series They received poor ratings in both the Army and Navy centered episodes But I think things will change today Special Forces is one area where I think the Empire actually has a really good chance of coming out ahead First off the Empire’s army was born of the Old Republic which itself had specialized Clone Trooper Training not only were pre-existing regiments like the Clone commandos Incorporated into the Imperial regime, but the Republic’s general favoring of Special Forces was not only maintained, but also Expanded because of the size of the Star Wars galaxy the variety of unique threats and the degree to which the Empire Militarized the Imperial Special Forces divisions continued to be developed besides for just specialized training the Empire also made numerous advancements in genetic manipulation power armor forest manipulation in various other areas related to combat effectiveness Especially units like dark troopers or terror troopers were crafted with a purpose and technology never seen before in the galaxy all reflecting the Empire’s extreme militarization and Palpatine’s recognition of the incredible threats facing the galaxy however the Empire not only had excellent soldiers with the best experimental technology But also a variety of soldiers the dark trooper branch alone had over a dozen different Subtypes this meant that the Empire was able to effectively bring a great deal of force Taylor designed to any threat Palpatine was crazy and evil and thus the Empire was as well this results in hundreds if not Thousands of special projects many which spawned a variety of Special Forces units due to that along with as I mentioned the sheer Militarization of the Empire I think it’s really tough to beat them in the Special Forces Category the Imperial Army grew out of the Republic so let’s also take a look now at that faction specifically because the Republic existed for thousands of years we will focus on the Clone Wars era and specifically on Clone Special Forces most of the Special Forces clone troopers including arc troopers and Clone commandos Fell under the special operations Brigade arcs and commandos were actually the most well known in my opinion of the SF units and were representative of the Clone Army Special Forces Generally the regular Clone Trooper was trained from Earth to be a fighting and killing machine Clone Special Forces units Received not only more training with a great deal more resources dedicated to them But also better training commandos and arc troopers have better teachers They had more one-on-one time with their instructors, and they were taught how to succeed and survive dangerous missions both but arc troopers specifically were also genetically modified to be more strong-willed and Independent and independent means not only that they could operate on their own or within small groups But that each trooper had a distinct personality something that you don’t see to the same degree Among ordinary clones while all Special Forces clones were given fantastic armor and weaponry I really do think it’s this training That is key the ordinary clone was already well-trained however Special Forces units arcs and commandos were on a whole nother level their whole life dedicated to not only being a better soldier But also a better Special Forces soldier We also see with Clone commandos that they’re integrated into squads at a very very early age Which allows them to operate as a unit in a way that most clones and certainly most ordinary Troopers could not there’s really something to be said about being bred to Kill now there were other units that could talk about including shadow troopers But I think what I’ve said so far about arcs and Clone commandos Generally holds true for all clones Special Forces divisions next we have the other belligerence of the clone war the Confederacy of Independent Systems CIS special forces were obviously unique as they were droids they were built rather than birthed and trained I see two main Benefits to using Android special forces the first is that at least theoretically you can design a model to fit any Situation you can also design and produce droids relatively quickly which ties into the second benefit if a Special Forces Droid is destroyed. Well. You just build another one you don’t lose years of training and institutional knowledge You just go to the factory and pop another one out You don’t to train it for 7 10 15 years this however is also the clear downside to droid special forces I think that generally battle droids are less deadly than organics at least behaviorally that lack of personality institutional knowledge and just experience that you get from years of battles and being a Special Forces commando cannot be replicated by programming sure joints have quick reflexes but they lack a certain instinct at least in the Star Wars universe that you see with organic combatants the Technological advantage should not be ignored and even the Empire used some form of droids with their shadow Trooper programming however even organic Special Forces units can neutralise that advantage by using things like vehicles or explosives all in all I don’t think Confederate programming will ever be equal to training and Experience and as I say it a second ago I think that any technological advantage any durability any firepower any whatever can be neutralized or equalized through the use of armor or vehicles This is really not surprising given the droid army more often than not relied on sheer numbers rather than individual killing machines I will certainly acknowledge though that the Confederacy of Independent Systems Created a variety of very dangerous droid types the super battle droids the ultra battle droids Corps ptosis droids Droids and more all gave Republic soldiers a lot of trouble finally we have Rebel Alliance Special Forces And I think the defining aspect of the Alliance in this respect is a lack of institutional training Infrastructure now the Alliance certainly did have Special Forces units to in particular, which I’ll talk about later But there is no denying that when compared with the Empire the Alliance didn’t have the time or the resources to Overly train its soldiers many of the Alliance’s best soldiers were primarily trained and defected from the Empire or from other Military groups obviously the Alliance did do some of its own training however there was somewhat of a lack of uniformity In my opinion the Alliance had both spec ops and Special Forces Divisions the spec op forces were kind of like spies going undercover performing missions of subterfuge Etc etc Special Forces on the other hand were more like Imperial commandos or arc troopers there’s not really a lot to say other than that these soldiers were the best of the best and underwent an additional level of training when compared with other Alliance soldiers still the Alliance was limited they had a lack of Resources a lack of personnel lack of equipment, and they weren’t exactly pioneering new forms of technology The Alliance was much smaller than the other factions on this list However the Empire did piss off a lot of people And they didn’t generally use aliens within their ranks that gave the Alliance two potential avenues for recruitment There’s also no denying that the Alliance did win the war much of this was because of the efforts of Special Forces groups on covert missions with a brief description of the four factions out of the way Let’s now rank them from best Special Forces to worst the faction with the best Special Forces is in my opinion the Galactic Empire they had the most type of troops their troops were the best and they had the best weapons they also undertook the most research and We’re constantly developing new technologies and Special Forces units I don’t think any faction in Star Wars history can match the Empire when it comes to scale and quality of their Special Forces Coming in at number two is the Clone Wars era Republic? I think the excellent training of clone units and the fact that they were birthed and bred to be Successful fighters is what sets them apart from the lower factions on this list coming in at number three is the Rebel Alliance and there’s just the fact that the Alliance didn’t have as Infrastructure and resources as the other factions on this list however I will say that they did use their special forces units very very well Which more or less allowed them to win the Galactic Civil War still? I think the training of their units can’t compare to that at the republic and they certainly didn’t have the fancy high-tech technology or things like genetic manipulation that the Empire had still they do manage to come ahead of the worst faction on this list the Confederacy of Independent Systems the Confederacy lands in this position purely because it is my opinion that droids in combat will never be as effective as an organic being especially a being who has been hardened by years of battle and Training in my opinion the sea is also placed less importance on special forces divisions relying more commonly on shared numbers employing large Amounts of basic battle droid models will you see commando droids and other models? But those were relatively rare and still not as good as the Special Forces units of the other factions as I mentioned I think any of the technological advantages held by droids for example increased armor can be dealt with by organics using powerful weapons or vehicles That however is just my opinion am I under estimating the droid army over valuing the Empire or have I failed to realize that the rebel special forces were good enough to win the Galactic Civil War let me know all of that more down in the comments also Let me know whether you liked this video What you’d like to see next any ideas you have for future verses episodes or factions compared videos and don’t forget if you haven’t already To follow me on Twitter join the discord And if you want to support the channel consider checking out my patreon anyway as always guys Thank you so much for watching this has been at carts ladder may the force be with you
