Can anyone tell what is the difference between Tontaipur and Tontaikam? I found an article but I can't read Infonesian.
Kopassus = special forces from the army
Kopaskha = special forces from navy
Koppasandha = special forces from air force
not entirely accurate
Kopaska: Komando Pasukan Katak: Naval Special Warfare Unit
Kopaskhas: Komando Pasukan Khas: Airforce SOF
Koppasandha: Obeselete, former name of Kopassus
im sorry and thanks for correcting me bro..!
im not that good at translating, but ill try to translate it
tontaipur is somekind of intelligent in combat area,
"Tontaipur sebagai mata dan telinga brigade mempunyai tugas pengumpulan keterangan dengan jalan pengintaian, penyusupan ke daerah lawan, interograsi, wawancara, mencari keterangan di daerah operasi untuk kepentingan taktis tempur."
as an eye and ear of the brigade, tontaipur have a duty to gather information with intelligent way, infiltration behind the enemy lines, interrogation, interviews, and gather all other information for the use of tactical combat
while tontaikam is to defend our resources from enemy's intelligent..
tontaikam is defence, tontaipur is offence. in practice, tontaipur practices to infiltrate area with tontaikam defence on it.
correct me if im wrong..
