Sorry what is the difference between the Commandos and the Special Forces?
Every Brigade has it's own Special Forces sub unit. Specialist Assaultmen, Specialist Marksmen, Saboteurs aso. Georgia has 5 professional infantry brigades and several Special Forces units. Now, there is one Batallion of selected Special Forces Soldiers. It is the Commando Batallion. The Commando Batallion has sub units, one of them are again selected one. The Elite Commandos. This organisation of structure does not differ from some other countries, like Mexico for example. It is also cultural based. Georgian Elite Commandos act individual, if not in a team of 3-4. They are allowed to. Special Forces Soldiers have to work in squads and allways interacting with support forces like gunships, light armoured vehicles and artillery. Saashvilis personal lifeguard consists of one of the best trained, although, the president allways traditionally has an uniformed life guard. SpecOps are something different.
KUD ?, those guys are from the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Police units. More like SWAT and for intelligence or secret service. But they are most likely as the personal hunter brigades of Merabishvili. The training does not differ from SpecOps, but they kinda have a role of political executions.
I thought SOD was like that, and I thought KUD was the Army's anyway you know better then me.KUD ?, those guys are from the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Police units. More like SWAT and for intelligence or secret service.
You at least need to pass advanced marksmanship, special Forces qualification training at night and realistic conditions, special weapons, medic, languages, paratrooper and diving.
I don't know really. Hmm, you could visit http://mod.gov.ge/?lang=1 and ask them. The site is still a bit under construcion.
Also, important: Look at
Military Personell Salaries
My aquetance was pushed into the army with 18 years, by his unlce. He is now a Commando Officer. During his service he visited France, Germany, the United States, Canada, and Italy. So he gathered a lot of experience and qualified for a lot of things before beeing accepted as Commando.
Thanks for your contribution to the thread bro!
Salary would not be too much of a concern for me as I do not plan to make this a career. I also plan to do it right after my Turkish military conscription service. That might help things out a lot.
