Craziest Military Training Exercises

Cobra Gold 1 of 8

Military forces around the world resort to some pretty extreme measures to make sure their soldiers are ready for anything on the battlefield. Here are some of the craziest military training exercises found anywhere. Do you think you could hack it in these units?

Cobra Gold is a joint military training exercise between the US Marines and the Thailand military. One of the craziest parts of their training involved learning how to survive by eating some of the local wildlife. This included catching and killing live and very deadly cobras and drinking their blood. They also learned how to kill a live chicken by biting it's neck. After that, learning how to eat various insects and scorpions was probably a breeze!
