Actual or Ex Legionnaire
In my day in 4eme esc, the "tireur d'elite" was actually the new guy if he could shoot or not never came into consideration, simple fact on the orbat we had 1 bolt action per section and some one had to carry it !!. The fact that we had VAB HOT'S 15 tonne APC'S with a missile rack on top, 4 missiles in the rack and another 8 in the vehicule, Hot missiles = 4Km in 17 Sec wire guided 3 VAB'S in a section/ group, plus a MILAN post, seriously wtf would we do with a bolt action. but the morale of the Legion is " Don't ask questions just do the job your given" oh I forgot to mention each VAB had a Browning 1/2 inch as well. each FAMAS can launch grenades, and if it goes tits up, each legionnaire has his opal ( 3 inch knife for making your casse croute) and would willingly show you the Camerone spirit..
