    I read an article about that recently. It's in norwegian though, but I can translate some main points.

    http://www.vg.no/nyheter/utenriks/ar...artid=10069650

    Basically, it mentions that Norwegian forces have been a part of training the unit, and both NATO and afghan authorities wanted that Norway take charge of the training again when the New Zealand forces finish their period.

    The ministry of defense says the Crisis Response Unit was built up by Norwegian forces, and they were in charge of their training from March - October in 2007, and from March 2008 - October 2009

    They seem to have taken some inspiration from their Norwegian mentors. The units name is Crisis Response Unit Task Force 24, which they chose for themselves after they were given some insight into Norwegian war history. The number 24 is the agent number used by a well known norwegian, Gunnar «Kjakan» Sønsteby

    The final phase of the development is said to be important, because it will raise them to special forces level, according to Tom Bakkeli. Almost all operations are managed by the Afghans themselves, but their partners are involved in everything. Their main focus is preventing atttacks in Kabul, specially with IEDs, roadside bombs and the networks behind them in mind. They have already been successful in finding bombs and stopping some of the people involved.

    [SIZE=4]"Norwegian special forces received with war dance"

    [/SIZE]Link to article in Norwegian:

    Google translate:


    Published 02/04/12 - 12:20, edited 02/04/12

    With a Maori haka, a traditional war dance, greeted the soldiers from New Zealand Special Air Service (SAS)
    their counterparts in the Norwegian Armed Forces Special Command / Army Ranger Command.

    [/SIZE][/SIZE]
    Armed Forces Special Command (FSK) has taken over the job of mentorere the Afghan security force CRU TF 24

    - It's good to be started with the mission. I was even in Kabul during the early part of the overlap with our New Zealand
    colleagues, and met old friends from CRU-one from 2007 to 2009, says head of FSK / HJK, Colonel Eric Kristoffersen.

    It was started FSK education of strength is now called the Crisis Response Unit Task Force 24 Afghans chose to adopt
    the number 24, which was Gunnar "Kjakan" Sønsteby agent number during World War II.

    Since 2009, SAS mentorert strength. Newzealenderne have lost two of its operators in violation of the Taliban.

    Impressed

    - I am impressed with the way SAS has developed a CRU. We are humble to the mission, and know that this is not an easy task.
    First and foremost, because the security-situation in Kabul is challenging, says Eric Kristoffersen.

    COMMENT: Special Forces - a useful elite

    The threats from the Taliban and other groups that will prevent the development of democracy in Afghanistan
    remains high against the Afghan capital, and it is expected a turbulent spring and summer season.

    The operators of FSK / HJK took over the mission from their New Zealand counterparts without a break or so-called
    downtime. It usually takes at least two weeks between a country's strength ends its mission to another takes over.

    Found tone

    The management of the NATO-led coalition force ISAF leadership was very pleased with the seamless acquisition
    between the two countries' special forces, who found the tone when they operated together in the
    US-led Enduring Freedom in the aftermath of terrorist attacks against the United States in 2001.

    Norwegian FSK and MJK (Naval Forces), together with the Crisis Response Unit Task Force 24
    prevented a number of major attacks in Kabul in that they have uncovered organized attempt
    to attack the city with a buried roadside bombs or suicide bombers.

    I do remember when we were on the shooting range with our Ag3F2's and had to share it with a troop of new guard conscripts, when it was our turn to shoot you could see that they were shocked of the difference in sound and/or power
    Some of the older guard have been negative towards it, a lot of our doctrine has been to fight in dense forests so the extra penetration of the 7.62 will be missed.

    Most conscripts are happy with it, though a lot of them are CoD kiddies(Every time I hear someone say it's like an m4 I want to cry).
    I haven't heard any bad things from our professional battallion(tmbn), Seems like every time they're in contact they have DMR's, GMG's and M2's so even more 7,62 might be redundant.
    Our SOF forces have been using C8's and G36k's until now and I believe they're very pleased with the transition.

    Though, The plans to exchange my beloved MG3 into a minimi are horrible!

    Although there's a general discussion topic about this, I though I'd post this great news here as well

    We're buying upgrades and new CV9030's for 10 billion Norwegian Kroner (about 1.7 billion USD).
    Seeing as most of the CV90s are 20 years old, it's about time.

    Right you are sir. They tried out the HK416 for CQB but it lacked the heavy barrel the Diemaco had.
    So they went back to the C8's fast. But on some of the pictures you see what looks like HK417

    What?!

    Don't comment unless you actually know what you are talking about.

    There are specific reasons why Army SOF are not using the HK416 system as of yet. The one you state is not it.
