Kommando Spezialkraefte (KSK) VIDEOS
KSK stuff is way too badass. These guys are deadly, although new and not as famous as the gsg-9 but they were among the first foreign SF units in Afghanistan.
Thanks for the videos ghost, weekend will be fun watching them.
The next unit from my side will be a blast from the past.
COMSUBIN (ww1) ?
dog is wearing shoe.................
I mean't the current war in A'stan but Meriv I'll give the credit where its due. Many people forget the contribution Italians have to Special Operations, if the British came out with the SAS for land based warfare, underwater demolitions and amphibious warfare was actually created by the COMSUBIN, you guys were there before there was the SBS and before the Americans even decided to form SEAL teams.
Badass + COOL I loved the fact that they use dirt bikes in active battle field .Have seen their photos patrolling in their bike in the mountain of afganisthan simply "awesome" .+dirt bike being economical ,feasible and practical and their hk g36k "super cool".
Regarding GSG9 being more popular it's coz all the operation performed by GSG9 are done in full media glare where as most of the KSK operation are top secret hell even their the member of parliment are not told about it even their causality is kept secret hence by nature it would not have celebrity status such as gsg9 but the real fact is "GSG9 are good at a particular task they do -only particular task but KSK are good at everything they do -which is every kind of task possible".And their dogs :thumb:
BLAST FROM PAST which one bro?
Bro even if i or someone else would have known the detail of Zaslon they would have not told unless they want you and themselves dead.
Zaslon is SVR blackops team and their is "certain " reason they are called black ops so i don't think you would find detail about ZASLON but still i have got some and u can also refer to the links i have provided.
Zaslon, meaning â€œShield,â€ was established in 1998 to perform covert missions abroad from hostage rescues to assassinations and whatever other SVR operations may be under way in the world.
It is said to be as well-equipped as the legendary Alfa and Vympel Russian commandos and trained for all contingencies.
Its personnel are on duty around the clock and donâ€™t inform other Russian Special services of their missions.
The highly secret unit completely shuns publicity. Consequently, not much is known about members, said to number some 280.
Now, sources within Syria say elements of the unit have been dispatched to that country. The Zaslon units may have been sent to guard Russian nationals, including the Russian embassy in Damascus.
The unit also is prepared to escort Russian and high-level Syrian government officials out of Syria and is prepared to destroy sensitive documents and high-technology equipment if the rebels advance on Damascus and cannot be halted by Syrian military troops.
The Russians do not want their military technology or sensitive documents captured. They certainly would be of utmost interest to Western intelligence services.
In preparing for the worst in Syria, Moscow reportedly has dispatched a small Russian naval force into the Mediterranean Sea with a contingent of 300 naval infantry marines, as well as empty troopships which may be on hand to evacuate Russian nationals.
Most likely, any Russian evacuation would be through the Russian naval facility at the Syrian port of Tartus.
Dispatch of the Zaslon Special Forces unit is expected first to strengthen security at the Russian embassy in Damascus and form a security ring around the Russian military and technical advisers now in the country.
This isnâ€™t the first time that a Zaslon unit has been dispatched to Damascus. Last year, one provided security for former SVR director Mikhail Fradkov when he visited there.
Given the mounting concern for the Jabhat al-Nusra group, an offshoot of al-Qaida from Iraq and comprised of other foreign nationals, the Zaslon unit also may be used to target key personnel within that Sunni Islamist militant group.

This one bro:
East German Diensteinheit 9
Most have heard about the higly efficient Stasi, East Germany's intelligence agency. It makes one wonder that they had such a feared intelligence agency but what about special operations? After all their allies the Soviets had their mysterious Spetsnaz.
East Germany interestingly did not foster SF capability very much like its West German counterparts. West Germany pre-1972 had long range recon units in the Army and the Kampfschwimmer frogmen unit in the Navy but they lacked a unit that was capable of Covert raids behind enemy lines and counter-terrorism like the SAS, the East Germans too followed a similar model. Was it because their main focus was West Germany and the lack of such capability over there led them not to bother about it? Were they relying on the Spetsnaz in case the cold war turned hot because West Germany was one of the centers were the West would attack the Soviet front with East Germany being included.
Post Munich massacre led to the West Germans setting up the GSG-9 and SEK units within their police forces. Looking at this new development the East Germans set up their own unit, the Diensteinheit 9.
ince no comparable force existed in East Germany at that time, it had to be created from scratch, i.e. from intelligence reports about western special forces units. The unit had been created in 1973 with provisional units before it was fully established in 1974, being involved in the security of the Leipzig Fair.
Upon German reunion in 1990, some members of the Diensteinheit IX were merged into the Spezialeinsatzkommandos of West Germany after thorough political evaluation procedures, such as with SEK units in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and in Sachsen-Anhalt.
The unit was tasked with counter-terrorism operations including:
Law enforcement in high-risk situations
Physical security for large events, i.e. the World Festival of Youth and Students
Manhunt of deserted Soviet Soldiers
Recruitment and Organization
The unit answered directly to the Head of the Ministry for State Security. In every district capital, a sub-unit was stationed in secrecy since the Socialist Unity Party of Germany [SED] would not admit to the public that crime exists in East Germany.
Members of the Diensteinheit IX were recruited from the East German Volkspolizei. Prospective members had to be between 25 and 39 years old. Furthermore, they had to fulfill stringent physical and psychological requirements. Also, they had to be graduates from an officer's school.

Good find bro but incomplete i mean you did not mention about the gentleman work if any done by them(operational record)
and some pictures if any would also be appreciated.
Bro no offence but my perception of Italian armed forces is not too good blame it on western media or my ignorance as per world war 2.
It would be a great help if you could enlighten us all about ur elitest sf and their details (operational record and photos) .Choose the most bad ass sf of Italy.
Diensteinheit 9 pics:
Operational record wise, not much is known except for the fact the provided security for the fair, hunted Soviet deserters hiding in East Germany and they went on against protest groups for freedom.
yes i know , no offence at all, i will look for info, since i know almost to nothing on the topic, but we are really bad in PR(as a consequence of fascism we went from full nationalist to condemn almost all form of nationalism, even good sides of it, and this hit hards us especially on the economic side).
