    There is no proper translation for this unit's designation. In German it is called Objektschutzregiment which would literally translate as "force protection regiment" but there's more than that to their tasks. For example, the regiment is also able to maintain airports in combat zones.

    The regiment consists of four battalions, the first of which has three infantry squadrons and a air defense squadron, the second one has three infantry squadrons and a military intelligence squadron whereas the third specializes on explosive ordnance disposal, firefighting and airport clearance as well as maintenance. The fourth battalion is a reserve infantry battalion.
    Thank you for the info, i must admit i didnt know German had a unit like that, and as i am ex RAF regiment myself i thought i new all the countries with similar units the Regiment 1 So again thanks Both for for the info.

    You're welcome, and thanks for the terrific pictures.
    The original captions are somewhat misleading though. They're not permanently doing "mine sweeping", an ordinary ied sweep is just a part of every operation outside the bases.

    This is because the Friesland regiment is pretty new, only a few years old.
