They get used especial if the danger is air or sea pirateship, assassinations onto foreign diplomats or organized crime.

Country: Germany
Unit: KS (kampfschwimmer/combat divers)
part of: Marine (navy)

It is made up by 80 active fighting soldiers (well, just rambo is more elite ^^)

01.07.1959 the first combat divers in germany were trained
they have to do:
* doing combat diver jobs and jumping with parachute
* doing lone warrior battles and jobs
* doing pre-beach, beach- and hinterland recon jobs for amphibic operations
* doing under-water closebattle resource defence
* support detonating over and under water with and without of diver preperation
* driving with small boats with engine
* driving german military vehicles of classes B/CE
* doing materialkeeping jobs for the special combat diver equipment
* doing rescue- and recoveryoperations


diving stufft:
The company "Dräger" produces and develops for years for german and foreign combat divers (US Navy Seals as example) the diving equipment. The oxygenium-cycle machine LAR VI is the newest model::
This so called "swim-diving-equipment" isn't magnetical, so under-water mines cant react against them. The oxygenium bottl is filled on 200 bar. The breathair is charged with oxygenium by "breath-lime"t. This system secures that no air-bubbles come to the surface and a diving time of up to four hours is possible. The bad side is the relatively low diving deepth of around 10 meters.

Kälteschutzanzüge: Die deutschen Kampfschwimmer werden mit Anzügen von der Firma "Poseidon" ausgerüstet. Es werden von den Kampfschwimmern sowohl Naßtauchanzüge als auch Trockentauchanzüge verwendet.
Die Naßtauchanzüge bestehen aus drei Teilen. Zunächst eine Hose ("Long John"), dann ein Oberteil und zuletzt eine Kopfhaube. Das Material ist, wie sollte es anders sein, Neopren.
Besonders fällt auf, dass der gesamte Anzug keinen Reißverschluss hat, der eventuell scheuern könnte. Doch dadurch erschwert sich das Anlegen des Anzuges deutlich. Auch Füßlinge und Handschuhe (5-Finger-Handschuhe) sind aus dem gleichen Material und wiederum ohne Reißverschluss.
Auch die einteiligen Trockentauchanzüge (KVA - Konstantvolumenanzüge) bestehen aus Neopren. Die Reißverschlüsse sind ebenso wie das Tauchgerät anmagnetisch. Eine Neopren-Kopfhaube ist angesetzt. Diese Anzüge werden vorzugsweise bei Extremtemperaturen und dementsprechend langen Tauchzeiten eingesetzt.
Die Marine verwendet das Modell "Unisuit" mit zusäzlicher Seitentasche (für Notflasche), Vorrichtung für Tauchertelefonlautsprecher an der Kopfhaube und Hoheitsabzeichen an den Schultern.

sorry, found no way to write this in english


* Heckler & Koch MP5
* Heckler & Koch P8 (modifizierte USP)
* Heckler & Koch G36
* Heckler & Koch 40mm Granatwerfer (granade launcher)
* Fliegerfaust "Stinger"
* Heckler & Koch P11 (underwater gun)
* Panzerfaust 3 (not often in use)
* Panzerabwehrwaffe "MILAN" (not often in use)
* limpet mines and other explosives

Other equipment:

* pleat-canoe made by the company Klepper
* Speedboats of the brand "Task-Force" (Nomen est omen *lol*), around of 8 meters long, and they have two strong outboardengines

FSK stands for Forsvarets Spesialkommando and in english it means military special commando. Little is known about this unit, an FSK team consists of 20 men possibly less. Unlike other Norwegian Special Forces, the FSK are an elite group to which it is not possible to apply instead its members are invited to join mainly from the Haerens Jegerkommando and Marinejegerkommandoen.
There skills are in

weapons handling
hostage situations
calm in extremely dangerous situations

There main missions lie in Counter-terrorism within Norway, or the protection of Norwegian interests in other places, rather than subersive and sabotage of enemies capabilites.

It is believe that they also operate with other nations special forces (SAS, Delta Force, and DEVGRU, and GSG9.)

Paskal is strongly influenced by the tactics and organisation of British Special Boat. Paskal usually trains with GGK as well as US Navy SEALs, Indoneshia's KOPASKA and of course SBS. One of the problems Paskal is facing right know is low passing rates, therefore not having that many operatives.

Here as some of the tests they have to go through

7.8 km run in 24 minutes.
1.5 km swim in less than 25 minutes.
6.4 km swimm in the sea with full combat load in under 120 minutes.
Free style swimming for 1.5 km 31 minutes
Swimming with hands and feet tyed together for about 75 meters
Diving with out breathing aparatus for 50 meters

Its main mission is to protect Naval bases all over Malaysia.

I was wondering do we have a unit with this mission? I know we had Red Cell test the security of bases but there not around anymore and thats a different mission anyway.

This group is called the
commando helicopter force, there divided into four squadrons 845 and 846 being the the tactical airlift squadrons and 847 provides air support while 848 is the main training group. They are trained in small-arms handling as well as tactics and survival fieldcraft. I wonder if this unit has done training exercises with the Night Stalkers and USAF special ops does anybody have any info on that.

During the falklands they picked up an argentinian "fishing" boat that was a bit too close to the task force for likeing...the boat still wouldnt leave after multiple attempts to contact it and tell it politely in true RN fashion to Fujijaj off... **didnt swear** so after the harriers tried bombing it with J-damms **which dont really work on ships** they sent in a helicopter load of SBS guys..
They couldnt get onto it at first due to weather and not being able to get the rope down...but a friendly "fisherman" on board helped them !
They stormed the boat, rescued the injured crew, stole the wheel and blew the sinking ship up with charges...

This unit is a unit that operated in the pacific in world war II they were called the marine
raiders. They had three main missions, spearhead amphibious landings on beaches thought to be inaccessible, conduct raids, and operate behind enemy lines disrupting the enemy from behind. This unit was I believe the start of the Navy SEALs and Force Recon not sure though. Oh yeah I know the UDTs were the start of the navy seals, but they conducted demolition missions this unit operated like the navy seals operated in Vietnam and today.
