GSG-9 got created and founded for one specific reason: counter-terrorism. We move in as a team of five, we take care of it, and everything is basically over before they even know what happened. We do not mess around.
— Michael Nagler, former German infantry

GSG 9 der Bundespolizei (GSG9 BPOL, "GSG 9 of the Federal Police"), formerly known as Grenzschutzgruppe 9 (GSG 9, "Border Protection Group 9") is the elite counter-terrorism and special operations unit of the German Federal Police. Despite the fact that GSG 9 is no longer a Border Protection Unit, it was allowed to retain its designation because of its fame.

In 1972, the Palestinian terrorist movement Black September Organization used the Summer Olympic Games in Munich, Germany, to kidnap 11 Israeli athletes, killing two in the Olympic Village in the initial assault on the athletes' rooms. The incident tragically culminated when German police, neither trained nor equipped for counter-terrorism operations and underestimating the number of terrorists involved, attempted to rescue the athletes. They failed miserably and the operation led to the deaths of one policeman, five of the eight kidnappers and the remaining nine hostages (subsequently called the Munich massacre). Apart from the human tragedy, Germany's law enforcement found itself severely embarrassed, in part due to its historic relationship to Jews and Israel.

As a consequence of the incident's mismanagement, German officials created the GSG 9 under the leadership of then Oberstleutnant Ulrich Wegener so that similar situations in the future could be responded to adequately and professionally. Many German politicians opposed its formation fearing GSG 9 would rekindle memories of the Nazi Party's Schutzstaffel. The decision was taken to form the unit from police forces as opposed to the military on the grounds that German federal law expressly forbids the use of the military forces against the civilian population.

Because of the importance of GSG9, most of its operations are kept a secret from the general public. The most notable known operations the unit has been involved in include Operation Feuerzauber and the arrests of Red Army Faction members Wolfgang Grams and Birgit Hogefeld.

Battle vs. EKO Cobra (by Codgod13)[]

Four members of EKO Cobra are at a command post. Four GSG-9 members see it as a crucial operations base for Germany and attack. They leave one sniper behind, and the other three attack.

A german sees two austrians and sneaks up behind them. He shoots one with a remington, but as he's pumping the gun, the Austrian captain shoots him with a Glock (3-3)

The Austrian captain with the Glock yells that they are under attack, and then he comes under fire from an german with a G36. He dives out and retrieves his dead comrade's AUG, but the guy with the HK presses the barrel into his neck. The german smiles, just as he is blasted into a oblivian by a Cobra wielding a SPAS (2-3).

The GSG-9 captain sees his sniper, and motions for him to come. They continue forward, and see an Austrian, and the Austrian quickly retreats into a nearby building. He waits behind the door holding two tonfa. As the germans enter, he clobbers the captain and knocks him to the ground. As he prepares to kill him, the german sniper shoots him with a USP (2-2).

The walk outside, and a bullet smashes the ground by their feet. An Austrian sniper wielding an STG fires again, and kills the german sniper (1-2). The captain grabs his sniper's sniper, and retreats inside the buidling, avoiding bullets. He peeks out, and kills the Austrian with a PSG1 (1-1).

The german turns around, and leaps outside as an Austrian unleashes a torrent of rounds from a Glock. He quickly reloads, and proceeds outside. The geman tries to shoot him with a USP, but the Austrian puts a bullet right next to his head, and the german drops the gun and puts his hands behind his head. The Austrian fires... and his gun jams. The GSG-9 member quickly scoops up his USP and shoots the Austrian in the head (1-0).

Battle vs. SWAT (Real Life) (by Tybaltcapulet and Rikun85)[]

Classified, Germany, 2019[]

"We have identified 5 hostages in a furniture warehouse, bound with explosives, your only mission is to get them out safely and take out the hostiles. Hostiles are heavily armed and dangerous, and are wearing stolen body armor. Your mission is to neutralize the threat by any means necessary and save the hostages."

Leutnant Weber, the commanding officer of the GSG-9 unit assigned to this mission quickly assembled his men and divided various arms among them, and established their plan. They would have one sniper(Leutnant Weber himself), two submachine gunners, one shotgunner and one man with an assault rifle. Their plan, kill every last hostile as quickly as possible and complete the mission with great speed.

"... are armed and dangerous, and have acquired stolen body armor. SWAT's mission here is to safely retrieve hostages, eliminate hostiles without casualty, and apprehend those responsible ."

Oddly enough Lieutenant Wilson and his SWAT set up their men very similarly to the German counterparts down to the organization of men and their arms, with Wilson as the sniper of the group. Their plan was slightly more complicated, disorient the enemy, rush in, and arrest them, instead of killing the hostile force.

As both squads made their way towards the opposite sides of the large building and prepared their battering rams to enter. Both squads had no idea that the "heavily armed hostiles" would in fact be each other, and their standard operation would be a lot harder than they first thought. GSG-9 busted the door knob off the the end of a Fabarm FP6, and slowly opened the door just enough for them to emerge through. SWAT had brought a battering ram, and after a few hits, they busted down the door completely.

Wilson and Weber set up on the far end of the large room, and ordered their men to storm the rest of the area to find the "hostiles". The SWAT commander loaded his Remington 700 and waited. Weber on the other hand, decided to move up a little bit to a more manageable range, and then loaded his DSR-1.

The SWAT operatives spread out across the room ready to outflank their enemy, while GSG-9 decided to adopt a closer knit formation to overwhelm whoever they met with their firepower.

GSG-9: Red x5

SWAT: Blue x5

Now spotting the SWAT men, one GSG-9 member through a flashbang at them, throwing their aim off track. Taking advantage of their disorder, Weber fired off his DSR-1, making one of the SWAT members fly backwards hitting the cover behind themBlue. Realizing they'll become an easy target for sniper fire if they don't move quickly, the SWAT members run as fast s as they can so that they are out of the sightline.

Wilson fired back with his own sniper, striking a moving GSG-9 member in the back of the head Red. It was at this point where both snipers were rendered essentially useless, as their sight lines were completely covered with as the two groups got closer and closer to each, preventing them from providing adequate support.

Meanwhile the rest of the SWAT group had begun their fight again their German counterparts, and were having great difficulty. They couldn't move very far from their position, due to the monstrous MP5 fire spraying the area.Seizing the advantage, one GSG-9 member moves around to a lone SWAT member with a M4 Carbine clutched in his hands.

Spotting the GSG-9 man, he quickly sprang to a small chair, and immediately began putting out burst-fire. The GSG-9 member smirked to himself, moving forward as the bursts stopped. The M4 was out of ammo, and as he reloaded, the SWAT member switched his weapon to fully automatic fire, and fired directly at the GSG-9 member, striking him in the leg. This however caused him to temporarily lose his target, and misses several shots, and giving the GSG-9 to use his HK416 to fire two rounds in his stomach and just below his heart.Blue.

His comrades had began to move forward with him and he had just started to do so when a Benelli M4 pellet launched into his back, forcing him flat on to the ground Red. Trying to repel the SWAT members from getting so close to each other the shotgunner, starts to pump his shotgun and is able to get out one shot, hitting the side of one of them, but before he can get out another pump, he's immediately hitting by an UMP round. He clutches his side and quickly falls over.Red

It was now up to the submachine gunner to put out enough firepower to dispatch their foes. The UMP user's weapon made a distinctive *click*, meaning he had ran out of ammo. Another flashbang was thrown out, giving the remaing GSG-9 member ample time to two run up to them, and immediately kill one of the SWAT members with a hailstorm of rounds Blue, but just as he was about to finish the other off, he too runs out of ammo.

Instead of firing at the last SWAT member, he forces his UMP out of his hands, and begins to pull out his VP9 pistol, but is stopped by a massive shock by the SWAT's taser. The last thing he saw was a Kimball Custom pointed at his chest and it's flashRed. Satisfied that it was over he began to look for the hostages, but looked up in horror as Weber had his own VP9 up and ready, and fires one round straight into himBlue.

Both leaders had been attempting to provide overwatch of the battle, and standing by. But at this point both knew it was only them left. Lieutenant Wilson pulls out his Kimball and moves towards the center of the the room with Weber doing the same.

Weber began firing on the lone SWAT leader with Wilson firing back as soon as possible. But the modified M-1911 quickly ran out of ammo but the VP9 still had plenty. He silently cursed to himself knowing it was smarter to switch to his baton than to try to reload as Weber was approaching rather quickly.

The VP9 then finally ran out of ammo, so he too quickly pulled out his own melee, his Glock knife. They were then face to face, fully committed to a full on melee battle. Wilson punched Weber in the stomach and then tried to hit his shoulder with the baton, but was quickly grabbed and slashed in the arm in return.

Weber then attacks himself, going for a stab onto Wilson's baton arm, but is hit in the arm with enough force to knock the knife out of his hands, and is pushed to the ground. The two men wrestle upon the ground, with neither able to get much of an advantage over the other. Then finally, Weber is able to free his hand enough to grab Wilson and flip him onto the ground.

His knife is right beside the SWAT leader's head and he takes it, and puts it up to Wilson's neck. Wilson then understands his fate. He's stuck and has a knife straight up to his neck. But just than some type of speaker noise booms throughout the room in two languages, German and English

"Simulation complete, all units head towards the barracks for an after action report."

Weber stood up and extended his hand towards Wilson, to which he quickly accepted. In a thick German accent, Weber uttered " Not bad for an American", with a laugh. Wilson laughed himself and answered with "Nicht schlecht für einen Deutschen". Weber's eyes opened wide with surprise" Oh so you learned some German?". Wilson nodded and put his arm across Weber's back as all the rest of the combatant stood up and gathered by their leaders and shook each others' hands. 

It had all been a training operation to test the capabilities of each of the groups,and no one had actually been killed.

Expert's Opinion[]

In the first modern rematch of Deadliest Warrior, GSG-9 easily won here. Most of their weapons were superior, with exception being their shotgun. All of their weapons were designed to kill compared to SWAT which had multiple non-lethal options they tried to utilize first. This lies the main reason they won, the men themselves. GSG-9 is the better trained,more experienced, and are better suited for straight-up combat.SWAT is designed to complete an operation without casualty, while GSG-9 has no qualms with quickly and efficiently killing hostiles, giving them a well deserved victory in this rematch.
