Yeah, well they got a rail on top, so my guess would be that they will use a EOtech or a Zeiss Z-Point instead of the standard red-dot. (Don't know why they didn't have them in that case.)Interesting is that their rifles lack the kollimatorsights the G36 normally has for acquiring targets at close range.
Atleast the guys in black, kneeing are KSK. Thats from a very old Promo-Video.I don't think any of those are KSK, though.
If you are talking about the Kampfschwimmers: Rumor and SPIEGEL has it that they are (or have been) in Afghanistan. (Possibly operating somewhere at the coast of Afghanistan. )Nonetheless, all of them look good. Who knows, possibly one day a German government even finds the inner strength to even really use them, until then we have to be satisfied with the visual aspect...
If they are used properly is another question.

Only the first one and nearly a half minute is footage of the Kampfschwimmer. At 1:22 are some Mountain Rangers, at 1:37 you can see, IIRC, footage of a broadcast of the RTL, showing the selection week of the KSK. But not troopers-to-be but the oppossing forces´ "Jagdkommandos" (sorry, don´t know the word). The soldiers at 2:05 and the following are in my opinion regular infantry (presumably "Jaeger", Rangers), Short interuption through the black guys from Calw at 2:30.Atleast the guys in black, kneeing are KSK.

It was said that the water-resitance of the sights weren´t satisfying.Yeah, well they got a rail on top, so my guess would be that they will use a EOtech or a Zeiss Z-Point instead of the standard red-dot. (Don't know why they didn't have them in that case.)
Germanys Navy Seals nice videos... i wonder if they train like US navy seals with live ammo and explosions.
Thanks for nice pics and videos
Very nice vid's and pics indeed!
Somehow with all the budget cuts in the german defence force the last years they still seem to hold up quite an impressive SF force.
New Video of Minentaucher - Navy EOD's has been freshly produced.
Nice vid, those were some big blasts. It seems that the German naval special forces system is very similar to ours although i don't think we have any centralized command for all of them, but the units are pretty much the same.
Note the bubbleless SCUBA equipment they are using in seventy6er's video above.
