Sabre, why do You use letter "R" after acronyms of the units?

Sabre
02-04-2006, 05:20 PM
'R' stands for 'Reserve'

These pics are off the United Kingdom Special Forces Reserve (UKSFR) webpage.

Yep, but you have to go through the Royal Marine Reserve (RMR) or out of the reg RM. They are organised differently to the SAS(R).

It appears they bested their Peruvian counterparts on the ground the last time those two countries clashed on the battle field.

Mostly special forces where deployed during that conflict with Peru and combat aircraft. During that non-declared war also there was what became the first-ever air-to-air combat between two Mach-2 capable fighters in Latin American history. The Ecuadorean Airforce (FAE) with mostly Mirage and K-Fir jets shot down a Peruvian Sukhoi S-22.

Good Question!
My mistake for not clear it out before

Greece has 1 Amphibius Comandos Command. Which has Several Amphibius Comandos Squadrons. They Are called MAK. (Mira Amfivion Katadromon) - Amphibius Comandos Squadron.
So We have
A' MAK, B'MAK Γ'MAK Δ'MAK E'MAK ΣΤ'MAK and Ζ'MAK

The Z'MAK is the Elite Squadron. It consists only by Professional Personel and are very well equipted.

It appears they bested their Peruvian counterparts on the ground the last time those two countries clashed on the battle field.

Yes, it certainly appeared that way. Very Good job working the press, I have to admit !

Nonetheless, they invaded Peruvian Territory - it is a GPS proven fact - and nowadays, they are not there anymore.

Negotiations? They got so bored shooting down Peruvian airplanes and helicopters that they decided to go home when mor eairplanes and helicopter kept coming back again and again and again, no matter what? did they reached their objectives of conquering the Cenepa valley and that was it?

Man, they sure are good!!!!!!

Or they just had to retreat because they were a little uncomfy? boots itching a little? too HOT?? or was it dhiarrea? missing the kids?

I wonder why they had to change their official maps showing Iquitos as Ecuadorian? Is it because our diplomats - that after almost 30 years, can't decide if it is better to join or not the LOS convention - are that good ?

Is it because they did not like the triangle of Sucumbios - fuuuuuull of oil -given away by Peru in the 40s, out of the blue? I wonder why?

So, I guess It wasn't such a good job after all, or was it ? Who knows?

Peru knows?????

And BTW, their special forces are good....ours are good as well.

Nonetheless...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To the 8:19 minutes at night of the day December 17, 1996 , 14 terrorists of the Revolutionary Movement Túpac Amaru burst since a neighboring house and they took the residence of the ambassador of the Japan in peru, when the festival was celebrated that, with occasion of the birthday of the Emperor of the Japan, offered the mentioned ambassador to some 800 guests. The terrorists, they knew of the presence of political authorities, businessmen and military. Gradually they were freeing hostages that did not serve to their dark interests, opting in last instance by maintaining prisoners to 72 people, by whose liberation they required at the same time , the liberation of 400 terrorists imprisoned.


From that moment, the situation returned tense, peru became the focus of attraction of the entire world, all the notified chains emphasized in the zone to their journalists , the same that daily during 24 hours a day were attentive to any movement inside and out of the residence ; then, the conversations between representatives of the government and of the emerretistas were initiated, simultaneously Among relatives, friends and supporters, since the outskirts of the residence they encouraged its family captives with masses, dances, songs of birthday, showing placards with words of affection and breath; every peru caused causes common.

It should be freed the hostages, but the fear of a military action that could endanger the life of the hostages was a ghost that patrolled and he frightened the relatives. But , the greatness of the present, Peruvian soldier always to support To its town, did that an extremely difficult military action was prepared and complicated, therefore should be freed the hostages to a cost "OR" in human lives.

It is for this reason that, while the peaceful deals were carried out, a group of expert commands practiced the robbery in a replica of the residence of the ambassador of the Japan in peru, built secretly in a military installation. Al same time, another suitable group of workers and technicians built under the residence similar tunnels to the of "Chavín of Huántar ", the city built thousand years before Christ. The thousand-year-old and silent ruins charged suddenly present time, only that instead of mystical priests counselors, acted commands perfectly coached with firearms.



It was in the afternoon of April 22, 1997, when the difficult and complex decision was taken that could signify a tragedy. But it had arrived at an extreme situation in which the terrorists , concretely the command emerretista pressured by their deputies , they were not going to yield peacefully. All was practiced and predicted , but, al same time, was extremely risky.

Toward the three in the afternoon of the same day, military bands of music began to touch marches of war, with the purpose to distract the attention and the ear of the 14 terrorists that conserved 72 hostages prisoners in the residence of the Japanese ambassador, in the heart of the luxurious Limean neighborhood of San Isidro since 126 days ago.

The marches had, above all, the objective to announce to the hostages that were prepared for a violent liberation. Thus it had communicated them itself previously through systems of communications installed in a secret way.

To the 3:23 in the afternoon, under an autumn beginnings sun, a strong explosion gave start to the operation "Chavín of Huántar", with the explosive of the flat of the main room , where a group of terrorists played fulbito. 140 commands of the three weapons burst for that forado and by other accesses shooting its machine guns.

It was this occasion in which peru gave a lesson al world. The town itself irguió with union and courage, decking with flags the houses and being met in ceremonies of prayer.

The most experienced experts, they calculated that in this operation of rescue -if was all a success- they would perish approximately the 30 percent of the hostages. The operation "Chavín of Huántar", only was executed once exhausted all the peaceful ways and when the physical integrity and life of 72 hostages -maintained by the force of the weapons-, they ran serious Danger.

As a result of its serious injuries, the Judge passed away Carlos Ernesto Giusti Mints. The operation "Chavín of Huántar " was the perfect culmination of the impeccable work carried out to the long of 126 days, that this horrendous terrorist action lasted, where itself not mistakes were made and the Peruvian town gave a lesson of decision and courage al not to negotiate with the terrorists. The peaceful deals sought only the liberation of the hostages , taken under the argument of the weapons and the force, by the 14 terrorist delinquents of the MRTA.

Of the Commands, gave heroically their life by the democracy and the Country the lieutenant Colonel Juan to Be worth Sandoval and the Lieutenant Raúl Jiménez Chávez, both elevated posthumously al upper immediate degree. The 14 terrorists were downcast. The operation was not simple. In the quarter of an hour that lasted, they were injured approximately near 20 commands. The world saw with surprise , thanks al miracle of the instant mass media, this operating explosive one, that brought as consequence the lesson that itself should not be yielded to the demands of the terrorism. Was an impeccable operation that today is obligatory theme of study in the antiterrorista schools, and that prides to all the Peruvians by its exemplary perfection.

For the Peruvians constituted a lesson of their capacity of union and courage, two necessary conditions so that the towns can face the challenges of the destiny and the challenge that represents this Third Millennium.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Model. For the preparation of the operation "Chavín of Huántar " a model to scale of the residence of the Japanese ambassador was done. This it could be separated in several parts to analyze the movements of the so much terrorists in the first flat as in the second.

Yes, it certainly appeared that way. Very Good job working the press, I have to admit !

Nonetheless, they invaded Peruvian Territory - it is a GPS proven fact - and nowadays, they are not there anymore.

Negotiations? They got so bored shooting down Peruvian airplanes and helicopters that they decided to go home when mor eairplanes and helicopter kept coming back again and again and again, no matter what? did they reached their objectives of conquering the Cenepa valley and that was it?

Man, they sure are good!!!!!!

Or they just had to retreat because they were a little uncomfy? boots itching a little? too HOT?? or was it dhiarrea? missing the kids?

I wonder why they had to change their official maps showing Iquitos as Ecuadorian? Is it because our diplomats - that after almost 30 years, can't decide if it is better to join or not the LOS convention - are that good ?

Is it because they did not like the triangle of Sucumbios - fuuuuuull of oil -given away by Peru in the 40s, out of the blue? I wonder why?

So, I guess It wasn't such a good job after all, or was it ? Who knows?

Peru knows?????

And BTW, their special forces are good....ours are good as well.

Nonetheless...

As an example of how reality can be twisted and reporters can 'swallow' the versions given to them:

Ecuadorian Newspaper - 1941:
http://armoreddefense.com/v-web/gallery/albums/Semper-Fidelis-EP/Ecuadorian_newspaper_1941_stating_that_Japanese_soldiers_were_helping_Peruvians_to_invade_its_country_cortesia_de_Luis_Hernan.sized.jpg

This Ecuadorian newspaper said that Peruvian Troops were aided by Japanese soldiers. As you may know, in 1941, Peru and Ecuador went to war, for the same reasons as in 1981, almost in 1991, and 1995.

The Japanese help was very accomodating since a lot countries were involved in WWII against the axis. A member of the Peru Defensa forum was a vice-minister or something like that an he told us about a museum in Ecuador confirming the same story. There are stories of the destruction - that is the term used - of a Peruvian destroyer by a small Ecuadorian gunboat, that according to the report of the destroyer commander, put the pedal to the metal into riverine channels, as soon as the Peruvian destroyer was sighted. Obviously, the smart choice. Nonethelees, the date of that encounter has become the official day of the Ecuadorian Navy.

Following that thread of thinking, the downing of two Su-22 FAP in the cenepa conflict has a cloud of serious doubt over it since FAE (Ecuadorian Air Force has not released - it is their prerrogative - the videos from the MIrage F1s cameras).

Our Chilean neighbours have their own stories. According to some 'sources' a Peruvian Sub - the so called BAP Rimac never existed - escorted by a Russian Submarine was sunk around a Chilean Port in the 70s. Once again, a very accomodating story, because of the Cold War.

Some Peruvian newspapers and magazines are also on the very edge of press freedom, but usually, Peruvian reporters are very busy attacking, either the Peruvian government, the military or a poor fellow at point blank. Scandals everyday, bribes, corruption. Some of them take their agenda to the limit. The sale comes first. In short, all things that make life interesting.

Apologies for the off-topic.

Good point. Freedom is for everybody.

However, I do not see any reference to Japanese, Cubans, Russians, Kissinger, modern maps with Quito being Peruvian, Press taken to false outposts in the middle of nowhere, aerial combats that never happened - not necessarily referring to the Su-22s episode in 1995 - and so on.

Bottom line is: The Su-22s were shot down. Whatever the means, they were shot down. Enough of games. We only want the damn videos!!!!!!!

As an aexample, England embargoed two ships bought in Germany and taken to eEngland ports for armament. This was in the midst of the War of the Pacific. The excuse was their neutrality in the conflict.

One of them is this one: The USS Topeka:

At the same time, England sold weapons to Chile. Furthermore, after the war, the monopoly of Salitre went to an english business man hands. It is well known the support given by England to their privateers and entrepeneurs abroad. Or that is twisting history too??

And that is not me saying it, is the US Secretary of State at the time.

Why does the guy on this picture wearing Dutch/English DPM and most certainly a Dutch Helmet?

That's not a Dutch helmet, look at the chinstrap and the way it's shaped.

And they're blatently CS95's. At least the Russians only steal the pattern, they don't use the identical uniform of another nation!!!

That rips the p!ss....Seriously though why use a different pattern to the regular army? Our SF dont. And we certainly don't routinely dress up in other countries' uniforms!

I don't mean to get political, but weren't the serbs one of those parties?

You clearly know f.all about the Balkans if you make statements like that. Memories there go back to '40-'45 and way before that.


I don't mean to get political, but weren't the serbs one of those parties?

Yes - they were parties in WWII, as were the US and the UK. On the genocide side of things - they were on our (the Allies) side and were largely the victims of it.

Don't bother replying - this is not going to degenerate into another Balkans flame war.

Good Question!
My mistake for not clear it out before

Greece has 1 Amphibius Comandos Command. Which has Several Amphibius Comandos Squadrons. They Are called MAK. (Mira Amfivion Katadromon) - Amphibius Comandos Squadron.
So We have
A' MAK, B'MAK Γ'MAK Δ'MAK E'MAK ΣΤ'MAK and Ζ'MAK

The Z'MAK is the Elite Squadron. It consists only by Professional Personel and are very well equipted.

Did 13 Syntagma Amfivion Katadromon and 1 Syntagma Katadromon merge because I only know them seperately and was Z MAK added to this new unit?

Dear @mikeytwo
There is not such thing like "13 Syntagma (Regiment) Amfivion Katadromon.
Sorry for not clearing it up enough

There is the 13 Dioikish Eidikon Epihiriseon (13 Special operations Command) -13 DEE
in the 13 DEE belongs units like
ETA -Eidiko Tmima Aleksiptotiston (Special Paratroopers Unit) of the Hellenic Army
Z'MAK -Z Moira Amfivion Katadromon (Z Amhibius Commandos Squadron) of the Hellenic Army
31MEE -31 Moira Eidikon Epihiriseon (31 Special operations Squadron) of the Hellenic Air Force
DYK- Dioikisi Ypovrihion Katastrophon- Underwater Demolitions Command of the Hellenic Navy

Hellenic Army has the 1st Infantry division
There belongs the units
1 Sintagma Katadromon Aleksiptotison (1st Commandos - Paratroopers Regiment )
32 Taksiarhia Pezonafton (32nd Marines Brigade)
71 Aerometaferomeni Taksiarhia (71st Air-Mobile Brigade)

So the Amphibius Commandos Belongs to the 1 Sintagma Katadromon Aleksiptotison (1st Commandos - Paratroopers Regiment )

The Z MAK formed in 26 August 1996 its completly Professional. It belongs to General staff Command of the Secretary of Deffence and it has nothing in common with the rest MAK that belongs to 1st Commandos - Paratroopers Regiment

I hope i cleared it up. If you any questions feel free to ask...

What is the difference between 2nd parachute regiment(described in RAID magazin) and 1st parachute commando regiment? Any more info on 71st air mobile brigade?

Well if we are talking about a Regiment this could be the Reserves Regiment.
Curently there is 1 Commandos Parachute Regiment. In War time a Second one would be activated and ready for Action.
Most probably this magazine would mean the 2nd Parachute Squadron (2 MAL - 2 Moira Alexiptotiston) based in Maleme Airport in Crete. The 1st Parachute Squadron is based in Aspropirgos near Athens.

As for the 71st Air-Mobile Brigade
Well its part of the Elite forces (like the 32nd Marines Brigade and the Commandos Regiment) but not exactly Special Operations Forces since like that could only described the ETA, DYK, Z MAK and 31MEE.
The Air Mobile Brigade uses UH-1H and CH-47D Chinook Helicopters (real soon the UH-1H will retire and they will use the NH-90) and C-130 and C-27J "Spartan" aircrafts for fast deployment anywhere the Command need them to condact Offensive (mainly) and Defensive operations.
Its a new Brigade formed in 2001 in the place of the 71st Infantry Brigade
Its men uses M-16A2 and M4A1 Rifles with Trijicon Acog Scopes (not all the soldiers only the team "sniper" HK11 submachine gun and FN-MAG and M2H2 0,50 Machinegun's they Use Carl Gustavs Anti Tank Missiles and MILAN based in the VBL Panhard Amphibius Vechicle they use. They have and Air-Mobile Artilery Squadron with M-56 Pack Howitzers and a A/A Squadron with Stinger Missiles. the 71st Air Mobile Personell wear the Red Beret while the Commandos and Paratroopers wear the Green Beret.

Okay, now I'm confused. Do the Amphibious Commandos belong to the 32nd Marine Brigade or to the 1st Commando-Parchute Regiment? And what's the role of the Marine Brigade? Strictly amphibious operations or do the also also conduct raids? Also, how many Parachute Commando squadrons are there?

Ok i will try to make it clear answering one by one the questions...

Do the Amphibious Commandos belong to the 32nd Marine Brigade or to the 1st Commando-Parchute Regiment?

The Amphibious Commandos Belong to the 1st Commando-Parachute Regiment.


what's the role of the Marine Brigade? Strictly amphibious operations or do the also also conduct raids?

Marines of the 32nd Brigade mainly condact Amphibius operations with the LST's and the ZUBR's Hovercrafts. Ofcourse once they land in the island/shore they then condact the raid or the operation they have ordered to do.


how many Parachute Commando squadrons are there?
Curently there are 2 Squadrons. 1st MAL(Moira ALeksiptotiston- Parachute Squadron) in Aspropirgos and 2nd MAL in Maleme- Crete. In War time a 3rd MAL will be formed.
Also there is an Autonomous Parachute unit the ETA. they are the Elit of the Paratroopers in Greece and they also jump from high altitudes during night etc..

I seam to remember reading something about a Hellenic coastguard special operations capable unit can you shed any light on them?

Hellenic Coast Guard has two Special forces units. They are the
MYA/ΛΣ -Monada Ipovrichion Apostolon/ Limeniko Soma- (Underwater Missions Unit/Coast Guard)
And
OEA –Omada Eidikon Apostolon (Special Missions Unit)

An interesting article by the Today's deputy commandant of the Hellenic Coast Guard Rear Admiral Ilias Sionides.



For two decades the Special Missions Unit (SMU) of the Hellenic Coast Guard has quietly operated without much public attention. However, their counter-terrorist security preparations and presence during the Athens 2004 Olympics, along with the increasing frequency of gun battles with organized crime along Greek borders has raised their public profile. In the 1980s the emergence of terrorism, especially the cruise ship Achille Lauro hijacking, and better-armed organized crime led the Hellenic Coast Guard leadership to recognize the need for special units who would be trained and equipped to meet the new challenges and in 1987 it was decided to form a unit initially known as the Anti-Terrorist Squad.
A subordinate element of the Greek Ministry of Merchant Marine, this special unit recruits young career Coast Guard personnel who have already served in the military with Greek SOF (special forces, paratrooper, amphibious or mountain raiders, or marines). They select the best of these personnel during a two-month rigorous training program that simulates the difficult conditions of their service. Afterwards, a unit member can count on advanced SOF schooling throughout their career from a wide variety of both military and police schools, foreign and domestic.
They will normally be assigned to one of 20 Special Operational Detachments (SOD), which are scattered around Greece’s many entrance points. These detachments have been so successful that another five SODs were activated in May 2005 and are bring brought up to strength and will be operational soon. Within an SOD members may serve on a regular Special Operations Team (SOT), or may be assigned eventually to one of the specialist teams such as niper, EOD and chemical biological radiological nuclear), VIP protection, and serious crimes team.
Physical conditioning and expert use of weapons, both at sea and in close-quarters battle is constantly trained and stressed in the unit. Since these personnel are expected to operate in situations where the average law enforcement agent would be out-gunned, sharp reflexes and quick critical thinking make up an important part of both selection and training. When they are called upon, they know it is probably a dangerous case that ordinary Coast Guard or Greek Police are neither trained nor equipped to handle, yet may have legal implications that place it outside the competence and jurisdiction of the military.
Standard team equipment includes MP-5 or sonic suppressed MP-5SD 9 mm submachine guns, M16 and M203 5.56mm rifles with 40 mm grenade launchers, Glock 18 and USP Compact 9 mm pistols, Benelli short stock rifles, and Belgian 5.56 mm light and 7.62 mm medium machine guns. Special Operations Team RHIB (rigid hulled inflatable boat) boats are fast, well-equipped with bright white and infrared lights, surface radar, a variety of communications gear and bristling with machine guns up to .50 caliber Brownings. For fighting against high-speed infiltrations (50 knots), the teams use their Swedish-built Combat Boat 90H which can carry up to 21 armed personnel and up to 4.5 tons of cargo while cruising at 40+ knots. Lighter loads allow sprint speeds that make these boats quite competitive with would-be infiltrators.
Teams in the northwest in the Corfu Channel principally combat narcotics and arms trafficking against a highly organized opponent. All team members who have worked this area consider it a constant combat zone with high-volume firepower exchanges possible at any time. The SMU’s only acknowledged loss, 25 year-old Marinos Zambatis, was killed in action during one of these battles.
Patrolling their western borders further south brings them into contact with the classic contraband smugglers (mostly cigarettes and small arms) and of course, illegal aliens of all types. These crime networks often use clever concealment devices to hide people, weapons and drugs, but they will back down more quickly when shown the overwhelming firepower of an SOT.
A typical operation occurs at night as heavily armed smugglers with nothing to lose attempt to cross in Greek waters from the straights between Albania and Greece with a load of drugs, or a rickety boat overloaded with illegal immigrants is moved close to a rocky coastline, the crew knowing that ordinary Coast Guard would have their hands too full to worry about them should they begin to scuttle the ship or ram it onto the rocks. But an SOT also may be called during a maritime crisis, such as when a ferry struck the rocks outside Paros harbor during rough weather and hundreds of people were in danger. That’s when their airmobile, ship boarding and search and rescue skills all come together on no-notice, high-risk rescue missions.
Greece has a history tied to the sea. Even today, nearly 60 percent of international maritime trade has some connection to Greece (flagging/registration, ship ownership, operation or crews). Its numerous islands and long stretches of rugged coastline have long encouraged small boat trade and commerce. Today, Greece itself is a crossroad that criminals and terrorists would like to freely cross. That brave men are also there, sharply trained and ready to face danger and hardships is something for which all of us should be thankful. O
Article by the Hellenic Coast Guard (HCG), with advice from Rear Admiral Ilias Sionides, deputy commandant of the HCG.

Well if you could read Greek you would see that with blue letters write
Diefthinsi Eidikon Epichiriseon (13DEE)
Proin 13 SAK
which translates
Special Operation Command (13SOC)
Former 13 SAK

Also note that while A' MAK and C' MAK are written with Green Letters the Z'MAK is written with Red
This is not by luck but it has to do with the autonomous role that Z' MAK has

Unfortunatelly the last years there are very often changes in the structure that's why there is this confusion...

Way do you have so many SF units? It seem to me that many of the unist do the same/similar things.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

In Sweden we have tow SF untis. The SSG and FJS.

SSG=Special Protection Group, Swedens equality to the SAS.
Air, Land and sea qualified. A all professional unit.
How many they are we don't know.

FJS=Parachute Ranger School
(but the units name is Parachute Ranger corps since June 1994)
Became the second SF unit in sweden in 2005.
A all professional unit
The unit are a LRRP-unit, they are inserted by HALO,HAHO,static line jump, Combatswimming(not squba) or helicopters. They work in five man squads.
Patrol commander, Radioman, Designated Maksman, Medic, Engineer (Demo, Mines, Expert on finding boby-traps e.t.c)
How many they are we don't know.

Apart from these units Sweden don't have any more SF units. official
Sweden we have chosen not to categorize our armed forces more than this. But we have units that international wod be referd as elite units. My opinion is that these units are Swedens "elite" Units

LLB=Tactical Air Assault Battalion
Amfibiebataljonen=Amphibious Battalion, one part of this unit is a Costal Rangers company and another a attack-diver squad.
AJB=Army Ranger Battalion
Underrättelsebataljon=Reconnaissance Battalion
FBJS=Airbase Rangers

all SF units are subordinated to the 13th Special operations Command...BUT
as far as the operational part is concerned Z MAK is controlled directly by the General Staff ,given the role it has in the defence of the Archipelago...it is stationed in the Aegean islands,it is a fully profesional unit,and was formed shortly after the Imia crisis of 1996

LIsten buddy, I really don't know why you have decided to include Egoz (BTW,Egoz is not a sayeret!!!!!!!! ) among israeli SF ,before even including Shaldag and others .
secondly, as far as I know,the two men in the 1st pic of S'13 are not real soldiers,but 2 "models" who modeling the I.M.I product (galil).:bash:

Egoz isn't a sayeret?Since when?i could be wrong though,not trying to argue.I didn't choose some units over others,just couldn't find any good ones of Shaldag,which is an amazing unit,ill be more then happy if you post them up.About the 1'st shayetet pic,you might be right,pic deleted.Anyway,relax,had a bad day or something :roll:

It's ok, I forgive you.

Egoz is just a "Yahatit" or " Yehida hativatit" of Golani,namely a small unit which belongs to Golani. Just like "Sayeret Golani" ,which some will say it's better than Egoz.

About posting pic's, the less pictures a unit has, the more spcial it is (at leat in Israel). your "Sayeret Matcal" pic(from Isayeret)was taken in early
90's if i'm not mistaken, and the B&W pic of s'13 was taken much earlier. Even when Sayeret Matcal operator killed in the last operation in Baal Beck , it wasn't allowed his pic to be post in newspapers or in any other media.
I think the conclusion is obvious.p-)

And just one more advice: Never believe to what is written on Isayeret.com. NEVER!

Alright,thanks for the clarification.
I know that Isayeret isn't the most accurate web site in the world,but there aren't a lot of sources on the web regarding our S.F,for a reason of course.And as you may know,i'm still a noob :) so just trying to learn as much as i can right now.And again,if you have Shaldag pics,i would love to see them man.
Didn't asked for forgivenes by the way ;-) Just for clarification.

thanks, isn't there one called dror?

I believe so,but they aren't S.F...Not to my knowledge at least.
Metsada is the prime unit of the Israeli prison service,very proffesional guys.

Thanks, just noticed the front grip on that shottie, don't suppose you know what ammo they'd use (rubber bullets, ferret?)

There was an article about them on Channel 2 news,been said they only use non-lethal weapons,so i guess by that they mean rubber bullets.
