The Premier Régiment de Parachutistes d'Infanterie de Marine is a team of French commandos.
Before Ice StationEdit
A unit of Premier Régiment de Parachutistes d'Infanterie de Marines was doing cold-combat training in Antarctica, operating out of the ice station d'Urville when they intercepted a distress call from the American Wilkes station claiming a diving team had dissapeared after fining an alien ship.
Seeing an opportunity to steal the ship for themselves, the French ordered the paratrooper unit to infiltrate the station and eliminate the scientists inside. Looking to gain the trust of the civilian scientists at Wilkes to gain access to the station, the paratroopers decided to pose as scientists from d'Urville, and took two actual scientists, Luc Champion and Henri Rae and to complete the illusion.
Upon succeeding in decieving the scientists at Wilkes, a member of the unit using the name Jean Petard drove five of the American scientists back towards d'Urville in their hovercraft, but joined up with their second hovercraft, and executed the scientists inside before staging the first hovercraft to look like a crash, before making a return to Wilkes to rejoin the rest of the unit.
After Ice StationEdit
When Schofield was captured by the French three years later, the French Army General made clear his bitterness about the loss of the unit to Schofield. (Scarecrow) When the French later placed a floating bounty on Schofield, the American President asked his French counterpart to drop it, but the French President responded that Schofield would pay for his actions, including the deaths of the men in the unit.
