Episode Recap

The United States Navy Sea, Air and Land Teams are the Navy's elite principal special operations force. SEAL teams are trained and have been deployed in a wide variety of missions, including direct action and special reconnaissance operations, unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, hostage rescue and counter-terrorism.

The Israel Defense Forces is one of the most cohesive and effective miltiary forces in history, and the Israeli Commandos are their elite combattants. Surrounded by enemies on almost every side, these warriors must be able to repel invasions, storm terrorist training camps and, when necessary, assassinate high ranking terrorist leaders.

To determine which of these two warriors from was the most deadly, a selection of weapons used by each man were tested to determine their lethality and usefulness in combat. For the Navy Seals, the weapons chosen were the Recon 1 knife, the SIG Sauer P226 pistol, the M4 Colt Commando assault rifle and C-4 plastic exposives. For the Israeli Commandos, the preferred weapons were KA-BAR knife, the Glock 19 pistol, the Micro Galil assault rifle and Semtex explosives.

With all of the various testing completed and the collected data fed into Max Geiger's battle simulation program, the two groups were made to fight each other to the death 1000 times in five-on-five battles. When the simulations were complete, the Navy Seals emerged triumphant 518 times, with the M4 Colt being the deciding factor 355 times. The Israeli Commandos could only claim victory 482 times, with the Micro Galil accounting for 288 of those kills.
