A Chinese national serving in France’s infamous mercenary military unit. Anyone from any nation, and any background can enlist in the FFL, granted you can endure the brutal training. The unit has even had former hardcore Nazi / Waffen SS members join after Germany’s defeat. I suppose that would be one Hell of a Euro-backpacking trip to end up joining the FFL.
A Russian member of the FFL. I’ve heard of former Spetsnaz members also enlisting in the FFL. Note the FN-Minimi Paratrooper model. The Minimi is known as the M249 in the United States. Looks like he has an ELCAN scope too; pretty common optic on the Minimi/M249 since it has a bullet drop compensator for the 5.56x45mm round.
A U.S Marine with the M249 Paratrooper; identifiable by the collapsible stock. What’s really interesting here is the optic. That is the Israeli MARS (Multi-purpose Aiming Reflex Sight). The U.S military issued the optic to some branches/units for field testing during the Iraq War. I don’t think they adopted it though or maybe they are in the stages of finalizing it something. Normally the MARS is seen on the TAVOR bullpups.
