Welcome back all you blood and gore junkies!
Tonight it’s the Vaunted SS vs. Viet Cong.
Ruthless jackbooted commandoes vs. Murderous sandal wearers. (Doesn’t have the same ominous tone)
Highly trained soldiers vs. armed civilians that had a great strategy.
1940’s weapons vs. 1970’s weapons.
Now, as Americans, we all know we lost in Viet Nam. Our reasons will differ, but that’s a story for another to tell. And we all know we, the Allies, won WW2.
Now the SS never faced anything at all like the VC. We ourselves had to adapt to how they chose to fight. And by the end of the VNW the VC feared the “greenfaced men”, American commandoes. And we all know the 1 time the VC chose open battle they got their asses kicked.
But lets cover the weapons first. After all, water lead blow through a skull on super slow mo is why we watch.
So what do the killers bring to the field to spill the most blood with?
The SS bring the Mauser and the VC hauls out the Tokarev.The mauser is a fairly easy to use weapon but the tokarev is ‘thee’ most powerful automatic out there. You gotta hit the target to kill, advantage SS.
Both are using 9mm sub machine guns with large clips. Advantage VC, because it’s an update model
The SS bring the FLAMETHOWER (I’m giddy just thinking about this) and the VC digs in with Booby Traps and Punji sticks. The traps and sticks were built to harm and maim, not, necessarily, kill. No one was there holding the weapon, but it relied on luck. The FLAMETHROWER, well, throws flame. Do I have to tell you what will lead in the body count on this one? If so, the Hello Kitty blog is that away à>>
The SS will bring in the original Assault rifle, named so by Hitler himself, and the VC will Bring the AK-47. This will be a generational issue for the SS. So common sense goes with the VC.
Ok, enough about the blood shedding weapons, for now. Lets break down the people behind the weapons. The VC were not, not soldiers with lots of training. They were ambush fighters. Hit and run, hit and run was the tactic from day 1 until the Tet offensive. They performed so poorly that they never opted for open war again and that was against our regular troops. The SS also used ambush, but their job was search and destroy, and they excelled at open battle. On Deadliest Warrior there is no hiding, you must fight to the Death.
I’m calling the Vaunted SS with 525 wins out of 1000 battles.
Even though they are using older weapons, they are all built to kill you where you stand in a blood splattered rainbow.
Now it’s your turn. Pick a side and boast how many bodies your team will put in the dirt.
And tune in tonight when we learn,
Who Is Deadliest!
