Question for you guys, the KJK are Marines right? Well are they are more like US Marines or more emulating British/Dutch Marines? I know there aren't that many of them
The KJK is a small elite unit [*******#000000][FONT=sans-serif]trained to operate in littoral[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=sans-serif] combat theatres. They are not trained to do typical special operations, like the MJK unit, but they train on some counter-terrorism tasks, like boarding. Their main task is ISTAR, [/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=sans-serif] and to fight [/FONT]asymmetrical [/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=sans-serif]enemy tactics. I am not sure how this compare to other maritime units.[/FONT][/COLOR]

Brigade relocating to Hordaland for maneuvers.

about the tan painted leopard, is Norway planned to send the leo in afghanistan ?
Don't think there are any combat troops still there. They gave up control of Faryab a year ago.
SourceNorway's rescue service says a cargo ship with 32 people aboard is on fire in the North Sea and an attempt to evacuate it has been called off because of stormy weather.
Rescue spokesman John Sjursoe says 20 crew and 12 military personnel aboard the Britannia Seaways are fighting the fire, which started in a container.
Sjursoe says no one is injured and the fire did not appear to be spreading early today as the vessel headed toward Floroe on the Norwegian coast, escorted by rescue ships and helicopters.
Armed forces spokesman Ivar Moen says the ship is carrying armoured vehicles and other military equipment from northern Norway to take part in an exercise in the southern part of the country.
