Okay here is a profile on israels navy commando unit.
The basic missions of S"13 are naval raids, underwater commando ops. It also specializes in counter-terror ops specializing in infiltration
through sea, land, and air.
The training phase is made of
four months of basic infantry training in the Mitkan Adam IDF SF training facility, two and a half months of advanced infantry training is held in the
IDF infantry school. Three weeks of HALO and HAHO training at the IDF parachuting school. The next phase is the preparing phase, its held in the
Atlit Naval Base and lasts about seven months. This stage prepares the the soldiers for the diving course and the underwater combat training.
The next phase is the diving phase, this lasts about a month in this phase the soldiers learn the basics of combat diving. They learn how to survive
dangerous underwater situations, (rocks, curves, pressure depth, etc) all the diving is done in pairs with the recruits tied to each other so as to
allow them to easily notify the other of a problem. The last phase is the advanced phase in this phase the soldiers learn advanced diving techniques,
underwater demolitions and weapons and long months of practicing sea to land inscursions, ( diving, ships, submarines and parachuting into sea.) Then
the soldiers learn how to combine all of what they learned in martime CT operations ( on ships, oil rigs,and near coast buildings.) In the middle of
this phase the soldiers are divided according to palgot, the best go to the raids palga, the second best are assigned to the underwater palga or the
divers, the third best are assigned to the above water palga.
Okay now I'm going to do the organization structure.
Shayetet 13 is divided into three groups, the first one is the raids group, they are in charge of assasinations, incursions, and CT. The second one is
the underwater palga is in charge of hydrographic reconnaisance, and underwater demolitions against ships, and harbours.
The third one is the above water palga, they specialze in the operation of boats, and support the underwater palga, and the raids palga, by driving
them accuratly and safetly to their targets.
