“Because the enemy is trained to THROW his weapon on the ground when he’s attacked.. right. Ok. Gotchya. 💪🏽’
“Haha so funny… And stupid… If the sentry turns around which they do.. He can pop two idiots on the floor and the dude with both hands unarmed… A bit of an expensive gamble… 😉”
“try doing it and see what happens that hidden third one will have shot you by the time you turned around.”
“cheers for your top tips Rambo! Call of duty has taught you well!”
“that’s why you designate a shooter first.”

Marines Commando Initial Training is one of the longest and most arduous programmes in the world. This is where you get a true taste of what being a Marines Commando is all about and learn all the skills you need to become an elite amphibious fighter.


Once you’ve passed the recruiting process you’ll be given a date to start Initial Training at Commando Training Centre Royal Marines (CTCRM), Lympstone. A five-step process, only successful candidates are progressed to the next stage. If successful, you’ll spend a total of 32 weeks here learning the skills you need to become an elite amphibious soldier.

To hit the ground running when you start your training at CTCRM, you need to be in the best possible physical condition. Keep up the good work you’ll have done to prepare for your Pre-Joining Fitness Test Plus (PJFT+) by sticking to the Royal Marines Fitness Programme.
