Yeah i've heard that too, apparently very highly trained.

It's a pity they look so stupid.



Where would you carry your weapon if you were forced to wear this.

They carry swiss army knives and crossbows (being swiss).
And their uniform colors blend well with the surroundings, in exercises it was found they are effectively cloaked as well as a Predator.
Do not let their appearance fool you.

Bahrain. They are really property of Iran, anyhow.

Try and take bahrein.

I am sure jordan would love some more Iranian Cheiftans.

The Swiss Guard is traditionally supposed to use a Halberd for ceremonies. But other than that, an air bomb would pretty much stop that party, so not much of a force.

Swiss guard are Elite Soldiers of the Swiss army (they must be at least 1,90m ect.), they also do the job of the bodyguard for the pope and others
that stupid dress is only used for representative guarding
and yes, they even have machine guns

With over 500years its most likely the oldest active military unit in the world.

@Abdul
Three Fourths? You love using this figure. It is obviously BS.

@GER MARK
A better question would be: With what Navy would Bahrain defend itself?

Bahrain is certainly not that weak! They have a decent Air Force, baring in mind the size of the country...

"uhh abdullah we are afraid of the arabs. we take bahrain when we feel like it. not a damn thing you arabs can do."
=======================================

This sounds like USSR vs Finland in the 40's and we all know what happened! You should also note that Bahrain is an island With 22 F-16s ready to repel, at least the first wave of any naval or aerial attack.

In addition their army has 180 M-60A3 plus 115 M-113A2. Their artillery isn't that good, but they have 9 MLRS and 13 M-110s which if positioned at key points can bee very effective.

Their AF plus their Army can keep control for the first 5 days, until then I expect Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE, to step in and eliminate any remaining enemy presence...

PS: Again, remember that Bahrein is an island, hence that an attacking force should have sufficient ships to carry MBTs and APCs (lets say 60 MBTs plus 120A PCs in day 1), otherwise anything else will get butchered.



"Bahrain is the first of the Gulf nations to request the Lockheed Martin ATACMS (Army Tactical Missile System), which employs the MLRS M270 platform."

and this is something interesting:

http://www.missilesandfirecontrol.com/our_news/pressreleases/00pressrelease/122000_MLRS.htm

http://www.armada.ch/01-1/010.htm



"In March 1999, the United States agreed to sell AIM-120B AMRAAM missiles to Bahrain to bolster the security of Gulf states against Iraq and Iran. The exact number of missiles sold is unknown. The US is normally reluctant to approve AIM-120 sales; this particular deal was probably approved due to the fact that Bahrain hosts the US Navy's Fifth Fleet in the Gulf."
