The Groupe d'intervention de la Gendarmerie nationale (GIGN), are the Special Operations counter-terrorism and hostage rescue unit of the French Gendarmerie. Members that belong to the military are also charged with police duties outside urbanized areas. Because of this, the GIGN members can be described as enhanced SWAT personnel than to a military unit such as the British Army's Special Air Service.
GIGN members are trained to follow police regulations and include negotiation and investigation specialists. The GIGN cross-trains with Germany's GSG-9, Spain's GEO, Hong Kong's SDU, Malaysia's SAU, America's SWAT, and HRT teams. They have seen heavy action against terrorists, organized crime, kidnappings, bank robberies, and other situations similar to that.
Battle vs. Special Security Team (by Yetimonster)
A GIGN unit cautiously approaches a junk yard. The unit leader shoots the lock of a fence, and the unit continues inside. Meanwhile, the Special Security Team is already inside. The GIGN spot the Security Team, and open fire with their M4 Carbines, killing one of the Japanese instantly. However, the Special Security Team fires back with their HK G3s. In the ensuing fire fight, one of the Frenchmen is killed. Now under heavy fire, the GIGN splits up, and flees into different parts of the scrap yard. The Security Team leader pulls out a SIG SG 550, and shoots down one of the fleeing Frenchmen . A Frenchman ducks into a small hut, and looks through a small cache of weapons. The Frenchman grabs an HK G3, just as one of the Japanese runs into the hut. Before the Japanese can fire, the Frenchman turns and riddles the man's body with bullets .
Meanwhile, two Frenchmen pursue one of the Japanese onto a bus. The Japanese hides behind the seats, as the Frenchmen come after him. The Japanese quickly draws a Sig Sauer P228, and shoots one of the GIGN members in the head knocking him onto the driver's seat. The GIGN leader member pulls out a Glock 26, and the two begin to shoot at each other furiously. The GIGN leader, moves out of the way of fire, and grabs a Benelli M3. The Japanese pauses, waiting for his foe's next move. The GIGN leader then appears with the shotgun. The Japanese tries to move out of the way, but is shot in the chest, throwing him against a window. The GIGN looks down on the dead man, and leaves.
As the GIGN leader moves to a different part of the scrap yard, a Japanese leaps out from behind a car, and charges him, firing his sub-machine gun. The GIGN leader pulls out a Glock 16, and shoots at the enemy soldier. The Japanese is hit several times in the chest, and drops to the ground. The GIGN leader later meets up with the remaining Frenchman, but the ally is quickly shot in the head, by the Special Security Team leader armed with a Remington 870. The GIGN leader flees, shooting his Glock as he runs. /at the same time, the security team leader shoots at him with his shotgun. Suddenly, the Glock jams, and the GIGN leader is forced to duck back behind a truck. The security team leader slowly approaches, firing the shotgun as he walks towards the Frenchman. Under the cover of the truck, the GIGN leader grabs another pistol and places a clip in it. The Japanese leader, catches the man off guard, and aims his gun down on him. Only then does he realise that the gun is now empty. The GIGN leader, realising he now has an advantage, raises his Glock 26, and shoots the Japanese leader through the head, splattering his blood on the ground. The Japanese is stunned, but not dead. The GIGN leader shoots him once again, and the man falls backwards onto the hood of a car. The GIGN leader then tosses the gun aside, as he spots an incoming French rescue helicopter.
The experts believed that GIGN won due to greater training, more experience from being around longer, and were better equipped than the Special Security Team.

All the SWAT and GIGN members rise, for it was just a training operation and the gore was all in the member's head.

An office building stands above all the rest in a large city, broad daylight. 5 GIGN Soldiers are in a quick search and destroy mission. A helicopter rolls in with 5 Delta soldiers in it. One shoots a GIGN soldier twice with the SR-25.
The Delta soldiers stay disciplined and kill two GIGN with their HK416’s.
The squads split up again, trying to regroup themselves. The two Delta soldiers share ammo and supplies, while the GIGN set up an ambush 3 floors down. One of the americans gets a stingball ready, while the other follows close behind.
The Delta quickly tosses the stingball in the office room. It goes off, hitting a GIGN soldier. He is wounded and his FAMAS is damaged. The GIGN that did not get hit throws a flashbang in hopes of catching the Delta off guard, but one soldier kicks it the other way and it goes off.
The two Delta nod and wave back for the helicopter to come get them.
