"The Royal Guard" is a bit misleading. The picture of this guardsman is of the Scots Guards (you can tell from his buttons being in threes and him having no plume in his bearskin). You would never call any of the Foot Guards "The Royal Guard", even though that is what they technically do. Though that is a picture of the Household Cavalry, it would be more correct to say he is a Trooper in the Life Guards, the Household Cavalry being broken into the Life Guards and the Blue and Royals. The Household Cavalry and Foot Guards combined is the Household Division. Also, more to the point, the guy that's from "Switzerland" is actually part of the Swiss Guard.... Which guards the Vatican and is mainly made up of Italians.

Whoever made this is a total moron. The redcoats dont wear their uniform all the damn time and hardlty anyone wears it. These are all exceptional uniforms and the swiss guard doesnt operate in Switzerland - they operate in the vatican.

Normal uniform - MultiCam, MultiCam, MultiCam, black suites or blue jumpsuits.

THe british one is incorrect. It's solely for the royal guard and is merely a showpiece.

Has anyone pointed out that these are anything but "normal uniforms" yet?

If I were to come across these four military men, I would only fear the ones I the "normal" uniforms, they are all plenty tough, but you can count on the "funny" looking ones not hurting you until you threaten them, You can't say that about the two "normal" ones.

*visibility of the unit.

i.e. when a general is commanding a unit of men upon the battlefield using a spyglass and semaphore, and black powder cannon fire obscures the field of battle, then it makes perfect sense to dress all your men in bright red. In those days, there was no sneaking about and shooting from cover, or blowing up innocents with a drone from the safety of an air-conditioned military trailer in Las Vegas.

A few words about the Swiss Guard at the Vatican. Their ceremonial uniforms may be a bit outdated, but if you cross the line you can discover that they are among the elite tough sons-of-bitches in the world.

Bear in mind that these uniforms reflect the age of the nations. The longer the history, the more ornate and impractical the dress uniform (on a modern battlefield).

The Vatican (Papal Swiss Guard) and their uniforms date back to 1506 and are appropriate for a ceremonial court guard of pikemen.

The Coldstream Guards' uniform style dates from pitched battles of the 1600s; the red aids visibility unit.

USMC Dress blues dates back to the 19th C.

The Russian uniform was updated, but based on the practical WWII-era soviet uniform.

You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys?

This is not a Swiss army uniform. The Swiss Guard is recruited from the Swiss military but has nothing to do with it otherwise. They serve in the Swiss army and then a 2 year term (at least) in the Vatican. The uniform is for representational purposes only, the Swiss guard acts more like a secret service than an actual army.

Swiss army uniform:

Exactly the same as what Angilion said, that is not a GB military uniform, that is a ceremonial guard uniform, traditionally worn outside Buckingham Palace.
I should know I am British.

What do you expect from a country noted for it's watches, knives, chocolate and money laundering.

Those are the uniforms of the Swiss guard. Those are soldiers of the Holy See. I'm not even sure if they are part of the Swiss government.

That's not really a normal British military uniform either - it's a ceremonial guard uniform.

The selection process for the the Swiss Guard is very stringent, and those uniforms are hundreds of years old design.

Yeah you may laugh at the clothes, but that guy could mess you up.! He would have to or risk looking like a pansy.
