    we are talking about the same thing ,it all depends on how you define Ranger type units....

    Anything about history of cypriot SF? One greek officer complained that it is very difficult to talk about it with Greeks, they get very emotional...

    the Cypriot National Guard also uses about a 110 AMX-30/AMX-30B2,apart from the T-80s that is..infact those are all AMXs in the pic above

    The tanks in the Cypriot army are the pride of the National Guard...they're kept in perfect condition at all times and are subject to upgrades quite frequently
