    "Nice pic's , those special forces totaly do not look like special forces.... for me they just look like normal soldiers."

    A lot if times Special Forces and other tier one units will go out of their way to look as "normal" as possible. Blending into the population you're operating around is sometimes a must. Also a lot of different countries elite forces use different equipment for different tasks and missions. I can't speak for experts and operators, but I doubt the average person can actually pick the SF soldier out of a line up all dressed in unmarked fatigues. These men come in all shapes and sizes my friend.

    Nice pix, guys!

    Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov (L) listens to Russian Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev in the parliament in Grozny October 19, 2010. Islamist rebels killed at least four people on Tuesday as they tried to seize Chechnya's parliament in a brazen suicide attack that showed Russia has failed to quell insurgency on its southern flank.

    Royal Navy Submarine HMS Triumph Enters HMNB Clyde by Defence Images, on Flickr
    Royal Navy Submarine HMS Triumph Enters HMNB Clyde

    Trafalgar Class submarine SSN (Ship Submersible Nuclear) HMS Triumph, glides into HM Naval Base Clyde in the early morning sun following a patrol.
    The Triumph of today is somewhat different from her predecessors. Built by VSEL at Barrow-in-Furness, she was commissioned in October 1991 and is the seventh and last of the Trafalgar class. Since commissioning, the submarine has completed a number of notable patrols from the North Atlantic to the Far East.
    Between 2005 and 2009, Triumph went through a long overhaul period to refuel the reactor, complete essential maintenance and repairs. During this long overhaul period, the vessel's equipment and sensors were upgraded to make her one of the most potent and advanced submarines in the flotilla.
