    @miguelencanarias: been to Cuba in 2007 and this thread amazes me. Thanks for all your contributions.

    I wonder if the special forces brigade is the only formation trained to perform longe range recce? Are there any light infantry formations besides the airborne brigade within the FAR?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi 11BravoAlpha, thank you for your kinds words.

    I am not sure I am the best person to answer your question, perhaps Pride or Maxo100 are better informed to fully reply to your interesting query.

    Hi 11BravoAlpha, I'm glad you appreciated this thread that Miguel started some months ago.

    Yes, Tropas Especiales - Avispas Negras - are the only soldiers trained to do long-range recce action as far i know. I'll have to ask if also paratroopers are able to do the same.



    Great videos Miguel! Thanks for sharing

    I received some news about cuban recce: Blue Beret and Red Berets are both special forces. Both are also trained as paratroopers.
    The Blue Berets are specialized in parachuting, Long Range Reconnaissance and operate behind the enemy lines (scouts). Red Berets are trained for special missions like destruction of enemy installations and commando attacks.

    @ pride: thanks! Appreciate that.

    The Guantanamo pics remind me of my trip. On my way to Baracoa I drove past Guantanamo and on to Yateritas. At some point, there is some sort of military training area/border area on both sides of the CC ("central highway"/interstate). Also on the outskirts of Guantanamo I drove past several barracks and training areas. Probably the most militarized part of Cuba.

    So border guards or military units in the vicinity of Guantanamo Bay are considered elite? Hence the camouflage pattern BDUs?

    Negative 11BravoAlpha, Border Guards are not part of cuban military elìte. Uniforms made in lizard camo were used till the '90 by Paratroopers (in Cuba territory, not during international missions. In Africa they were used by all troops).
    Today this particullary camo is used only by Border Guards near Guantanamo as far i know.

    That is correct, Pride, but the Guantanamo Border Guards are indeed a special unit within the FAR.

    I did not know until today. many thanks Miguel.

    I have another news about red and blue berets: all paratroopers companies were deactivated between year 2005 and 2007.
    Paratroopers were incorporated into Red Berets (Avispas Negras).
    Today Red Berets are trained to destruction/sabotage of enemy installations and "Long Range Reconnaissance" missions.
