Hello Dominique,what about data of Yugoslavia,which I had sent to you?
Special Warfare, Feb, 2004:
Former Polish commandos set to fill security billets in Iraq
Polish contract security guards intended to protect selected buildings and other infrastructure in Iraq and to support the creation of Iraqi security forces are being readied for deployment pending the completion of arrangements. At least two Polish commercial security companies have prepared security groups for the mission, drawing heavily on former military and security personnel. One of these, the Ipel Security Company, has hired 25 former members of the elite Polish GROM (Operational Mobile Reaction Group) and individuals from other special security organizations. Ipel and another firm anticipate working in support of U.S. and British commercial security firms, but as late as November 2003, they had not made final arrangements.
New Philippine force to help protect capital
A new 6,000-man special Philippine military command, designated the National Capital Region Command, or NCRC, has the mission of countering terrorist attacks and coups against the administration. The command's area of responsibility includes Manila and 16 adjacent suburbs. The NCRC will include air, ground and maritime components and will be headed by the former commander of the Philippine Army's 7th Infantry Division.
Russian customs committee has special-designation forces
The occasional media focus on one or another of the smaller Russian special-designation forces recently provided additional information on Russian Customs spetsnaz. These units, available to the Russian leadership for armed actions including counterterrorism, are designated "Special Rapid Response Detachments," or SOBR, of the State Customs Committee. First organized in 1993, SOBR units--armed principally with light automatic weapons--train to undertake assault actions of various types against armed criminal groups. Force preparation includes conducting specially prepared ambushes. SOBR training also emphasizes camouflage and concealment of a type normally associated with military special-operations forces. SOBR is required to conduct air, maritime and ground operations, and its transport resources include Mi-8 and Ka-32 helicopters, at least one Mercury-class 99-ton 50-knot fast patrol boat, and land transport. SOBR elements also work with other security components of the State Customs Committee, including frogmen, when required. The reason for creating paramilitary SOBR and support elements is explained by the requirement for these forces to operate in situations that are more "unusual" than those found in foreign countries.
Nepal establishing new special-operations unit - Foreign SOF
Special Warfare, August, 2003
A new battalion-sized Nepalese special-operations unit--termed a ranger unit--will be subordinate to the Royal Nepalese Army. According to media reports, the 1,000-man airborne-qualified battalion is being trained to conduct "commando" style missions, especially counterinsurgency and counterterrorist operations, and operations against armed criminal groups, such as drug traffickers. The unit is expected to be the beneficiary of foreign training, drawing on the earlier elite-force traditions of British, Israeli and U.S. special-operations units.
I've got that and a lot more stuff I need to get around to posting. Sorry it's taking so long to get to it.Originally Posted by Deminer from Sarajevo
Sorry, only for your info...Originally Posted by Dominique
Not a problem. And thanks for the assist. I' make the corrections this weekend.Originally Posted by lorenzo
Allow me to make major changes about my mother country.
1. First things first, you spelled PHILIPINES wrong. It should be PHILIPPINES.
Then on with the rest:
The FSRR are also known short handed as Scout RangersPhilippine Army Special Operations Command (PASOCOM)
- Alpha Two Zero (A-20, CT)
- First Scout Ranger Regiment (FSRR - LRRPs) (3 - battalions)
- Special Forces Regiment (SFR) (7 - battalions)
1st Special Forces (Riverine) Battalion
5th Special Forces Company
-Psychological Operations (Psyops) Group
PASOCOM has recently established the Light Reaction Company (LRC) and was designated as the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)'s Anti-Terrorist unit.
These Squadrons are only utilized mostly for disasters and thus, are not spec ops units.505th Search and Rescue Group (505th SRG)
-5051st Search and Rescue Squadron (5051st SRS), 5052nd SRS, 5053rd SRS
These guys are under the Philippine Navy, not Marines. The Special Reaction Group (SRG) in a counterpart of SEAL Team Six. They consist of personnel from the Philippine Navy and Marine Corps and operate under guidance of Naval IntelligenceSpecial Warfare Group (SWAG-Navy SEALs)
The PSG is a unit under the AFP and the Special Reaction Unit is the elite unit under the PSG and they operate similarly to the US Secret Service's CAT Squad.Presidential Security Group, Philippine Armed Forces (Philippine Secret Service)
The SAG does not exist anymore, the Special Action Force (SAF) now takes its place. Oh yeah, and it's Philippines, not Philippe. Learn to spell right, will ya?Philippe National Police (PNP) Special Action Group (SAG)
PNP Aviation Security Group
Police Security Protective Office (PNP VIP protection unit)
The Aviation Security Group is not a special forces unit, but a unit under the Philippine National Police.
I'm not sure if you would consider the Regional Mobile Groups. They are highly rapid reaction forces augmenting regular PNP officers in case rebels, higly armed criminals or terrorists gave them a hard time.
Now for 2
The Special Investigaton Team (SIT) operates under the National Police Agency and unlike their brothers in the SAT, they operate as an anti-crime unit tackling cases involving kidnappers, hostage takers and drug/hostage smugglers.JAPAN:
1st Airborne Brigade
- “Guide Unit” (1st Airborne Bde’s NEO unit)
Western Army Infantry Regiment (GSDF counter SOF unit)
- Ranger Platoon (infantry regiment recon unit)
“S” GSDF CT/Special Ops unit
Special Guard Force - (SGF, MSDF/ Navy special ops unit)
Special Security Team (SST, Japanese Maritime Safety Agency’s -- Coast Guard-- maritime CT unit)
Special Assault Team (SAT, National Police Agency’s CT unit)
Did you forget to put the Special Boarding Unit (or was that Boat) Unit too under Japan?
There you go.
PS - What does NEO mean anyway?
3. Include Kuwait too
Special Forces Counterterrorist Unit - CT unit under Interior Ministry
10th Commando Battalion - Guards Falayka Island and Kuwait International Airport (in peacetime), and reportedly also has a special boat unit for maritime ops.
Special Forces Unit - revived by Allied forces after end of Desert Storm.
Fast Attack Unit - coastal patrol and maritime interdiction
Combat Swimmer Unit
Don't forget to include too.CHINA (PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA):
6th Special Warfare Group
8th Special Warfare Group
12th Special Warfare SF Detachment
Naval Infantry Force
Special Police Unit - CT unit of People's Armed Police
Immediate Action Unit - CT unit of People's Liberation Army
Airborne Corps Unit - Special Forces Unit of People's Liberation Air Force
As for Indonesia, Detachment 81 is "dead". Detachment 88 is a CT unit of the Indonesian police.
On Iraq, allow me to update
Iraqi Intervention Forces - Anti-Guerilla Unit of Iraqi ArmyIRAQ:
The Iraqi Special Operations Force
-36th Commando Battalion
-The Iraqi Counterterrorism Battalion
Emergency Response Unit - Iraqi Police's "SWAT" team
Mechanized Police Brigade - Iraqi Police's Anti-Guerilla Unit
Special Police Commando Battalions - CT unit under reformed Interior Ministry.
Note these units are post-Saddam units.
About Canada, will you consider the Emergency Response Teams (ERT)? Thanks.
That's it for now.
I will DEFINATELY correct that mistake, and thanks for the info.Originally Posted by Ominae
FYI folks, the Canadian Ministry of Defense has plans to get rid of JTF-2 from the Canadian Forces.
Don't forget the Navy Boarding Party of the Canadian Navy.
