Hi all ... sorry but it's not BSPP, it's "Bataillon Sud-Ouest : détachement de pompiers volontaires et professionnels", it's the South-West Battalion , it's an artificial Battalion compose by many men of different SDIS (regional fire service) of South West zone. BSPP is a military unit but those are civilian (depend of interior ministry) ... they don't have FAMAS like BSPP. They are professionals and volunteers (in France 80% of firemen are volunteers, except Paris and Marseilles they are soldiers).
