Funny considering they spend most of their time propping up oppressive regimes.

Best wishes,

I've actually wondered why Delta was included in the game...the tasks that they are used for tend to be more applicable to Rangers or half-decent infantry. I think they tend to be more of a strategic asset, rather than an operational one.

That said, though, my experience is with the Australian Army and we have a strong emphasis on multi-role and capability line infantry, which doctrine provides as being able to fulfill functions that other nations spec ops trooops do.

It's a 17lbr, not a 76.2mm.

ANZAC Infantry come from armies that are much smaller and can afford to spend time and money "over" training the Infantry battalions.

You'll see the difference when reading that Indonesians are surprised at a basic thing like battalion infantry rappelling from Black Hawks and Iroquois initially misidentifying them as A/NZ SAS. Because their battalion infantry don't even ride in helos never mind rappel off them.

Like the US the more "complicated" infantry skills are the preserve of the multitude of special force units. I'm pretty sure things like Indonesian KOSTRAD units and Russian Spetz are actually larger or similar in size compared with entire NZ army or all the Aussie Infantry battalions.

I feel like it should be green berets or navy SEALS instead of delta force... deltas typically do more covert op type work, as far as I know.

Too bad VDV has crappy anti infantry ability, spetsnaz are helpless against tanks and VPZU are no way near delta force :( Thats why when playing NATO you have more infiltration options.

They can kill light vehicles and even tanks (if lucky)

No way near? 4 VPZU have almost same stats as the delta force, they are less accurate by 1 points and the RoF is a little slower too. 4 VPZU have better optics than delta force though.
