Hopefully yes

Yeah, the Portuguese Elite Rapid Reaction Brigade does similar duties, the Portuguese Army Commandos can also be considered to be a counterpart.

A friend of mine joined the Portuguese Paratroopers last year, at this moment he's "officially" a Paratrooper sunny

Many thanks Thumbs Up!

Last year (in the middle of his course), he had to be hospitalized because he broke his head and legs pale

Fortunately he was able to recover in time to compensate and successfully finish the course.

Because it's like finding a $100 bill laying right out there, in the open, in the middle of the street.

It's such a rare find. lol!

So then what kind of things should a SEAL unit be able to do in game?
Do you restrict what a SEAL can to do bring out features of other infantry, such as climbing mountains (saving for Rangers, or Marine Expeditionary units) Or should they be a combination of other spec ops to make them Sea Air and Land capable?
And at what point does an infantry unit become too powerful (Ramboism)?

These are just my quick initial thoughts here on the way I'd like to see it:

SEALS:
=========
1.) Swim
2.) Start out with an elite veterancy rank.
3.) Better accuracy (a better kill to wound ratio on the randomizer)
4.) Capture buildings (tech structures) faster than normal ZH infantry.
5.) Has the GLA vehicle hijack ability
6.) Has knife fighting abilities.
7.) Stealthed while in water only (if this can be coded in this way)


Normal Marines:
=========
1.) Swim (much slower than Seals)
2.) Grenades - Not only for damaging vehicles and such, but also allowing the marines to clear out garrisioned buildings with a much quicker and higher rate of success compared to normal ZH infantry with normal flash-bangs.
3.) Better heavier automatic weapons with better armor piercing rounds than normal ZH infantry.
4.) Regular Marines not stealthed.


Special Ops Marines:
=========
1.) Swim (much slower than Navy Seals, but faster than normal Marines)
2.) Better heavier automatic weapons with better armor piercing rounds than other infantry.
3.) Sniper ability - Allowing the special op Marine to manually switch to a light sniper rifle during battle. Upon achieving max veterancy, while in sniper weapon mode, this special ops unit can attempt to snipe vehicles.
4.) Special forces marines stealthed.
5.) Better accuracy (a better kill to wound ratio on the randomizer)
6.) Possibly able to call in for some combat air support depending on aircraft availability (my randomizer idea from previous posts).

Army Rangers:
=========
1.) Fastest land moving infantry units in the game.
2.) Rangers are able to climb mountains.
3.) Able to deploy Claymores, mines, and build IEDs.
4.) Has all of 'Col burtons' explosive and knife fighting abilities.
5.) Better and faster healing stats.
6.) Possibly able to call in for some combat air support depending on aircraft availability (my randomizer idea from previous posts).
7.) Better accuracy (a better kill to wound ratio on the randomizer)
8.) Start out with normal veterancy, but advance in ranks rather quickly.

In summary, The Seals would specialize in stealthed capturing and hijacking. The Marines would specialize in heavy duty enemy killing, and advanced clearing of garrisioned structures. While the Rangers specialize in explosives and other creative pursuits.
