Military forces worldwide serve as inspirations for tons of video games. Although many units and forces are not implemented into actual gameplay, the influence from multiple military groups worldwide is very apparent. We’re going to mix things up a bit today and show you some of the world’s most recognizable and dangerous military organizations.

The Polish GROM

A little FYI: The Polish GROM, Poland’s elite counter-terrorism unit, stands for Group (for) Operational Maneuvering Response (Grupa Reagowania Operacyjno-Manewrowego). It’s one of the five special operation units that make up the Polish Armed Forces. The unit has been around since 1990.

French Commandos Marine

A little FYI: The French Navy’s special operation forces consist of the Commandos Marine. They were formed in 1942 during WWII, inspired by the British Commandos. The unit is made up of about 600 members. Their training is known for being one of the toughest in the NATO Special Operation Forces.

German Kampfschwimmer

A little FYI: Kampfschwimmer means “combat swimmer.” They were created once Germany joined NATO back in 1955. They are a part of the German Navy, and they are their only special-purpose force.  Alfred von Wurzian, an Austrian Olympic swimmer, helped form the unit, despite his previous experience as an artilleryman.
