    What Hellenic special forces are/were station in Cyprus?
    A guy from a different forum said he served in a ranger-like battalion geared towards mountain operations during his conscription, and shared base in Cyprus with Cypriot SOF. Just curious about what unit that may have been.

    It's the 35 Raider Unit (aka 35 Moira Katadromon or 35 M/K). Maybe the only Greek SF unit that operates solely with G3 rifles.

    He is probably talking about LOK(google it) which means Mountain Raiders Company. The unit is the 1st Raider/Paratrooper Brigade and its a commando unit.
    Some old photos to have an optic example about this unit

    Thanks for the fast answers (and pics) guys! After reading around a bit I was guessing on it being a unit within 1st Raider/Paratrooper Brigade, but I wasn't sure which one.
    And yeah, he mentioned that they used the G3A3 as their primary weapon.

    HS Samos (L174) school ship visiting Constanta, Romania, 26-30 July. I had no idea that the Hellenic Naval Academy was open to foreign students; the Romanian Navy website indicated:
    On board were 124 students of the Hellenic Naval Academy and 15 students from Algeria, Cyprus, Libya, Jordan, Syria and Mauritania.

    ^^ Thank you for the photo, L-174 is a tank landing ship, occasionally she has the role of the training ship.
