Which group of highly trained military soldiers are the worst shots in the history of cinema or television?

GI Joe and Cobra (both groups are equally terrible)
Stormtroopers

LIST: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls095340295/
POLL:

I have been pondering this one off and on for a while (recently as of last month). And fun coincidence to be reminded of it again when I finally got around to watching the ... oddly (as usual) perfect "Community" G.I. Jeff (TV Episode 2014). Will finish the list when I find two good images to represent the two options ((uploaded one from the GI Joe Movie (1987 Video) - although it's not one I'm too excited about)).

Are the images gone intentionally?

I completely forgotten about this suggestion. I can't remember if I had to upload images to their respective IMDb pages. A little investigation is needed on my part

Not sure if these were the images I uploaded? But hey! They work. Does anyone know if we have a third group who are infamously bad shots? Not necessary for the poll to go live ... but if I'm missing anything (comedically speaking)....

Hahahaha, I just noticed this:  "frustrated as heck ... as I can't think of any pithy sentiment to write in this block of text." How funny. 

Anyway... Look! You've got suggestions above! : )

Only unintentionally funny soldiers or intentional funny armies, too?

The dumb necromantic army of 'Army of Darkness':
(I guess some of them shot? Or was it only Ash?)

Breumaster, regarding Army of Darkness (1992): there are several people with bows (and I faintly remember crossbows as well, but that might be disremembering), plus there are ballistas. As for titular army of antagonists: there were some projectiles, seemingly, as several knights ended up with several arrows in them, Arthur included. So they're not that awful of a shot, actually.

Ok, now that you say, I regain snippits of memory about it. I just had the faded idea of exact what you mentioned in mind. Fragments. ;) Now I remember that the army was mostly of footsoldiers that had swords or fought with bare knuckles. ;) It's really hard luck to find a 'worst-shot-group' in movies. ;D

The 'Men in Tights'. In one scene, Robin and his fellows tried to train some archers, but they arched like dumbnuts in training. Why didn't I rememeber these dumbnuts? :D
Even blinkin, the blind butler has a bow in his hands (left side):

I whish there would be a better image on the database.
