    I've got one Korean friend who went to the SF brigade in Southern Cholla. But also others who did their service elsewhere have told of pretty harsh survival training. Is it conducted in every unit of the ROK army?

    Some more pictures that I got about snipers from 707th Special Mission Battalion.

    They use AWM.338, MOD.SSG-69.
    (They used to use PSG-1 & MSG-90 until 2002, but exactly just before the 2002 Soccer World Cup, they replaced their sniper rifles by AWM.338 & MOD.SSG-69 - now PSG-1 & MSG-90s use by in common ROK Army special force.)

    707th SMB snipers also can use other sniper rifles as like US M24, M40, M82, and SVD, too.

    Your friend probably served in the 7th Brigade Chun_ma or Pegasus.
    He has my respect

    Uh, well all ROK forces go through some winter time survival training.
    It's very cold and all that but not sure whethere it is to the point of being too harsh. Of course it's not hell lot of a fun living it out and marching in the cold.

    daewon:

    Well, one of my friends who did his military service as TaeKwonDo instructor at an infantry unit had a good comment on the survival stuff. "They made me live like an animal." He didn't like it one bit. They just drop you off in the mountains with basic gear and then your're on your own?

    The main task of the SF brigades is directing artillery and aerial assets fire? Probably also taking on their DPRK counterparts in the mountains and cities of the South?

    new camo for ROKSF


    looks kinda like version of MARPAT with a bit more green





    Hopefully all current armed forces combat uniforms will be replaced with the new pattern.

    Or was this captured from film? Either way, very nice shot. The view is pretty good.
