Indian and U.S. SOF conducted the above training scenario and related training activities during BALANCE IROQUOIS 2003-01, a Joint Combined Exchange Training (JCET) Event. Throughout this event, members of the Indian Army’s 21st Parachute (Special Forces) Battalion and U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers lived, worked, and trained together at India’s Counter Insurgency Jungle Warfare School (CIJWS) at Vairengte, Mizoram. The CIJWS Commandant, Brigadier Amrit Kapur, supervised the JCET training event.


JCET BALANCE IROQUOIS 2003-01 included a mass-attack airborne drop from Indian An-32 aircraft. The airborne drop, using Indian parachutes, ended in a traditional jump-wing exchange, which marked the official end of a three-week combined training event in extremely rugged and physically challenging jungle terrain. Throughout the JCET event, Indian and U.S. soldiers learned to trust and rely on each other, building lasting friendships and unit camaraderie – characteristics that foster future interoperability between Indian and U.S. military forces.

This is just what I was looking for! Joint cooperation between a major power in Asia, and of course the US. I'm glad were training together for the war against terrorism! There forces in cooperation with ours, will help defeat and capture terrorists in Asia! Any comments or thoughs on this?


Just to tell you guys there is more than one page, there is one page before the page on the link. And then one more page after the page on the link.

LARANDIA ARMY BASE, Colombia -- U.S. Green Beret trainers watched proudly as Colombian troops reacted to an ''ambush'' with a withering blast of gunfire and by hurling hand grenades.
The aggressive response during training exercises -- opened for the first time to journalists on Friday -- was one the U.S. Special Forces have been instilling into their charges, who will soon combat drug trafficking in an area swarming with rebels and paramilitaries.


A U.S. special forces soldier helps train a Colombian anti-narcotics battalion, in Larandia, a military base about 235 miles southwest of Bogota, Colombia Friday, May 4, 2001. The training is part of the U.S. backed Plan Colombia, a $1.3 billion aid package.(AP Photo/Scott Dalton)

The battalion will finish its months-long training in this sprawling jungle base on May 24, and will join two other counternarcotics battalions -- a total of 3,000 soldiers -- that have been trained by the Green Berets since April 1999.

Yeah I know this is pretty old, but either way its good that were using our special forces to train other forces. To combat narcotic trafficking in South America, and in this case Columbia. I think if we continue to form counter-narcotic battalions around the world, we could really crack down on illegal drugs. Oh yeah there is way more to the article then I posted, very intrestign read!!

Missions


There missions range from long-range surveillance and bomb-damage assesments to prisoner-snatches and material recovery and sabotage.

Organisation

The SAS is split into three branches, ground, maritime, and airborne. The Ground branch handles all land assaults and land-based combat activities. The maritime branch handles all water ops and assaults. The air branch is a modern "Air America" but serves the US all over the world instead of just in Asia and also operates many different type of aircraft in civilian markings. If the ground branch needs to insert in to a special local it is the air branch that gets them there.

As I said just a little info so far that is!! I'll do more later today.

Operations

One successful operation conducted by the SAS occurred during Operation Desert Shield. During the operation a lone SAS operative repeatedly penetrated Iraqi defense in and around Kuwait City in order to deliver, and retrieve intelligence material from the besieged US Embassy. In another operation SAS operators, along with US Navy SEALs, were involved in the covert mining of Nicaraguan harbors during the 1980s.


Organisation


Air Branch

Air Branch is a descendent of such groups as Air America, Southern Air Transport, and Evergreen Air. Air Branch provides all of the Agency's covert aviation assets, with both fixed and rotary wing aircraft being available for use. Reportedly there is virtually no type of aircraft that SAS Air Branch personnel cannot operate. Some Air Branch pilots are culled from the ranks of the US Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.


Maritime Branch

Maritime Branch is primarily composed of former Navy SEALs from both "regular" blue water SEAL Teams and the counterterrorist DEVGRU, and USMC Force Reconnaissance personnel. Maritime Branch personnel receive training similar to that of Ground Branch operators, but with a greater training emphasis on amphibious/waterborne activities. Maritime Branch operators receive training in conducting operations such as jet-ski reconnaissance and hostage rescue operations along hostile shorelines.


Ground Branch

Ground Branch personnel are the most diversely trained group of all SAS personnel, receiving training at various civilian and military courses, with particular attention being given to the use of small arms. Training is known to include instruction in the following areas: assessing threat types; intelligence gathering; room entry techniques; tactical communications (covert radios, infrared, microwave transmitters, etc.); levels of force; use of the baton; armed and unarmed crowd control; edged weapons; unarmed combat techniques; team training and leadership; individual and team movements; structure penetration; boarding and securing vessels; prisoner search/ snatch and handling; hostage situation management; small unit tactics; long range reconnaissance and patrol; explosives; field medicine; extreme environment survival; and land, sea and airborne operations.
