The GIGN (Groupe d'Intervention de la Gendarmerie Nationale) is a French paramilitary counterterrorist force. While technically a detachment of the Gendarmerie (national police force) it formally remains an elite division of the French armed forces [1] Mentioned only once in the Appleseed manga saga, during Operation Benandanti in book three, The Scales of Prometheus.


Notes and References[]

  • An unnamed ESWAT operative makes mention that the GIGN's preferred modus operandi is to use tactics over all-out firepower. Some members of the GIGN are apparently on good standing with ESWAT, even though the organization's parent states are officially on hostile terms with each other.
