    Not all of them are Paracommando's, but yes they are attached to that vessel because the navy isn't qualified or capable to conduct decent searches.

    There's one section from 1para attached to the LoMa, so that would probably be them, yeah.

    If I had been more of an idiot, I would have believed you witheout question, and I would have been misinformed.
    I don't like that kind of thing no matter what the subject is; spelling, football scores, the price of gas, the date the world will end, whether or not Jessica Alba shaves her pubes...
    Now, off course I could have politely remarked that you might want to check your facts in the future, or at least formulate your phrases in a less confident manner (ie.: "isn't it...?, "I believe it's...", etc. etc.)...but hey, I guess I'm an asshole, eh?


    well, actually it's a silly word, invented by some prick who thought "infanterist" didn't sound mysterious/awesome enough, but whatever...

    Quoted because this can't be emphasised enough.

    Yeah, it was fun to talk to that guy, even if you could understand only half of what he said
    Anyways: I'm affraid that I might be getting a model B for 2/4L before the end of this year (I need to think about that, though. To be perfectly honest: I really asked for 1JP). So maybe I'll bother you with a question or two via PM sometime soon

    Couldn't the naval component start a course specifically aimed at training sailors to do this? It's what the Koninklijke Marine( Dutch Navy) has done with some of it's sailors, in the absence of marine or BBE boarding parties, or when the operational intensity is low enough. As a alternative, belgians could always attend ours, instead of having the NavComp setting one up themselves.

    There are still 20 Leo's MBT Ops and they will be replaced by AIV 90mm, which is hilarious !

    Mind if I can ask anything about the "Groupe Delta de la Police Boraine?"

    They seem like a SWAT team for Saint-Ghislain, Boussu, Quaregnon, Colfontaine & Frameries) with the Steyr AUG in a carbine-type barrel and a Glock 17 (Can't tell which model).

    Unless if I'm wrong.
