Comments from Youtube

Regal Two : This is why the GIGN are amazing.

DCD Chango : "Counter-Terrorists win"

Dave Davis : GIGN don't play.

Shou Yanbo : It was more dangerous for GIGNs, the terrorists didn't care about the lives of the passengers, they could shoot everywhere. 

arleitiss : I used to absolutely hate French. Until I visited France. I love French people now, even though I don't speak any French and only spoke English, the people were very welcoming and tried their best to help me explain things and directions in English. I have big respect for France and French now.

Heath Slaughter : "To save lives without regard to one's own" is the motto for the GIGN. That's exactly what I see in this video and kudos to them for doing so!

ACE : vive la france

Maxx Yang : GIGN is NOT the equivalent of S.W.A.T. It's more an equivalent to SAS or FBI

MilitaryMotivation : Good job our brothers -from across the channel!

TheDGP17 : It appeared they wanted to crash this plane on Paris, so actually GIGN more or less avoided a "French 9/11"... One of the world best police special forces, if not the best one (trained the US swat)!

pdrafter : They did it again!. All terrorists dead! GIGN really do kick ass! Congrats from the US! Job well done.

Tchongy : GIGN members have more chance to die during training sessions (16 casualties) than anti-terrorist operation (2 casualties). You can't compare GIGN and SAS since the first one is a police unit, the second one a commando unit. GIGN released more than 700 hostages, killed 20 terrorists or criminals, and captured more than 2000 of their ennemies.

Idontlikeyouropinion. at all : And people say the French are pussies. These guys are mad men, look at the intivative when they try and open the door. The stair ladder moves bak and instead of jumping the GIGN operator holds onto the door, opens it then leaps back onto the stairs then assaults the plane. Not to mention all the guys jumping all over the place.v

Nhan Nguyen : Counter-terrorists win

Erwin Nicolas Espinoza : i admire gign ,, they are better that americans

henry gonzalez : It takes some serious balls to storm a plane/room filled with murderous hostage takers who could give a fuq about dying....

Skanzool : That has to be one of the greatest raids ever undertaken. To neutralize the enemy and sustain no deaths to any of the passengers or raid team member in such a confine space is simply amazing. Excellent work that.

bobby4500 : they killed all 4 of them, happy ending

ToasterStrudel Gaming : This is why the SAS and the GIGN are my favorite, they come in, be badasses, then come out with all the squad members alive.

Jason Allain : That first group that went in the door was about as bad ass as they could possibly be! About one in a million has the guts for that and they had a whole group! Just the guys for handling terrorist vermin.

Tyler Tuthill : Much respect to GIGN.

Player DeOuf : No contest GIGN is the best...

Maurício Cavalieri Machado : all four terrorists were killed" music to my ears.

Darren Lynch : Have some of that!!! Takes serious balls to do these jobs, utmost respect to these men for risking their lives for others!

DavidForce : GIGN is not a SWAT, its a special forces unit of the French Armed Forces. The commentator are on crack.

TacticallyPractical : Go France1 From your half-cousins in Canada!

ComradeJTA : GIGN are badass! they have only had 9 fatalities in it's lifespan (established in 1973) two of wich were during operations and 7 during training.

eternalR81 : Wow ! Ive never heard of this Assault before by the GIGN till now . French Ninjas :)


Lane Green : Ahh yes, the GIGN. Probably more hardcore than our SEALs or DELTA teams

Adolf Hitler : Now I like to play as GIGN on the plane map in rainbow six siege

Fluffy McFluff : I'm calling hacks on the T who perfectly shot the bullet through the muzzle of the gign member

darren angel : yeah thats true not equalivallent to swat but the world elite, sas, gsg9, etc my honest opinion at the moment i think gign is world no 1 in hostage rescue, welldone from wales uk.

Giorgos280 : Congratulations from Greece (OYK-ΛΟΚ). GIGN did a great job! #Brothers

Guild Guild : GIGN equivalent in USA isn't SWAT, but SEAL

Francis Begbie : I can't deny that everytime i need a pill of courage to do something, i watch this video.

Ashaebi // DyG-Apollo : I'd rather have the GIGN and the SAS. I dont really care about the SEALS as they are almost exactly like normal US military. The SAS and GIGN however, are one of the most badass CTU Forces I've seen in action.

Sky High Aviation : Drinking game- take a shot (no pun intended...) every time the guy says GIGN.

odeus predrinn : GIGN forever !!! aaaamazing!

Shaun Davenport : Superb job GIGN!!! Major respect from some of us Brits!! 👍👍👍👍

DrSunTzu : Compare this to the Manila Hostage crisis which took 1 hr and 30 min with just one suspect in a bus...

Pushies : 1:11 what a massive jump, a co-pilot can survive a jump from 5 meter? really, he still could walk like normal

dalaï lama : l'avion devait s'écraser sur Paris.. merci GIGN

Chaotic Neutral : counter-terrorists win

Mike12522 : The GIGN forces were extremely brave. Nine of them, out of 30 used, were shot or injured. The lead GIGN member was shot SEVEN times. They all survived. No other Special Forces around the world could have done better.

David D : GIGN sont là pour ce type d'interventions ! c'est beaucoup d'entrainement, bravo à eux !

Ryan Shepard : Counter Terrorist win!

internettoughguy : counter terorists win
