    The Bundesheer has only four brigades!
    2 MechInf Brig - 3rd and 4th Panzergrenadierbrigade
    2 LightInf Brig - 6th and 7th Jägerbrigade
    The 7th Jägerbrigade is the "high mountain brigade". The only true airborne unit is the Jägerbataillon 25, part of 6th Jägerbrigade. Some pics:

    Well they have the letters "jagdkommando" on their backs, so I guess it is the jagdkommando

    @ mladina: Yes, these pics are from the Jagdkommando, but the pics in my last post are from the Jägerbataillon 25 - the airborne unit.

    Both units are capable to land by parachute. The recruits learn to jump by automatic parachute, the career soldiers are capable to land by paragliders.
    The 3rd company of JB25 is one of the Kaderpräsenzeinheiten KPE in the AAF. Although the AAF is a militia army, we have these KPEs, where only professional soldiers serve. The 3/25 is probably the best unit after the Jagdkommando and our "fire brigade" when there are problems in a international mission - for example durning the march-riots in Kosovo. The 3/25 will become a very big "super-company" in the next months.
