In the TV program “Deadly warrior” has compared the two best intelligence agencies in the world.
In the cold war, these two intelligence services were engaged in constant war, of course, to compare from the forehead is not entirely correct, however, experts from the U.S. have such a comparison.
A typical KGB officer, in the view of the authors
The program compares the weapons and tactics, and sometimes additional factors influencing the fighting, the type of psychological training and special skills. In the case of the intelligence agencies, large imprint rests on the choice of weapons – were compared based on their samples suitable for concealed carry and covert use.
The appearance of a typical CIA according to the authors of the program
American consultants armed KGB very strange set of weapons – Czechoslovak submachine gun “Scorpion”, a gun camera, a container for the transmission of intelligence and a knife in his boot. Frankly the choice is not the most obvious, much of it never was in service, the KGB, and is rather an attribute of cranberry movies. The CIA got the submachine gun MAC-10, a suitcase with a built-in gun, a cigar Packed with explosives and a garrote. The result was issued the verdict that of the 1,000 fighting the CIA won 550. The main reasons are the reliability of weapons and firepower. And this, of course, and a true CIA looks convincing. That’s just even taking the conventions of weapons, we must make a few reservations – the MAC-10 is incredibly difficult to control guns, keep out of it aimed fire difficult, while Scorpio is a stable and very accurate. The cigar and container is generally not perceived as a full-fledged murder weapon. But with the camera the biggest catch case easy to explore and discover in it a weapon, while the camera will remain invisible until shot. After all, this camera even can truly record.
Americans, of course, wanted to give the victory to his soldiers, but the victory even given the strange choice of weapons, seems quite unconvincing. As in many other cases, Patriotic program the United States is trying to wishful thinking.
