I did a search of the forums and was surprised to see no one has, as of yet, written about NASA's SWAT team. They don't deny it:
(Warning: I am a member of that forum and the members there are very
hostile towards outsiders/newbies.)
Finally, if anyone has the most recent catalog of Blackhawk Products, look at the pictures and you will see that they are all of NASA SWAT team
It is a very interesting team with very interesting equipment. For example, they operate a helicopter (UH-1 "Hueys") equipped with an H&K model 21
machine gun in the door. They have armored vehicles and a variety of expensive gadgets. They essentially provide security of the facilities and
protect the shuttle during all phases of roll-out and launch.
Also, NASA's Office of the Inspector General has a small team of federal agents acting as criminal investigators. They investigate fraud, waste, etc.
Wonder if they investigate anything worth of ATS mention....
Anyway, enjoy the pictures and info on this extremely unique armed branch of NASA.
Edit: Changed the link on the pictures because it was bad.
