I think the Swedish Arctic Rangers are about the best in this country, which is guerilla warfare unit. Its nothing like the US rangers. They operate in arctic tempretures down to -50 and below (aswell as above heh) and they arnt airborne and they work in small groups by them self, with no support from other units. Out on missions exeeding 30 days.

Thats about what i know about them.

"If so, then even I belong to SOF, having served in an Airbase security and anti-SOF unit. On this grounds FDF rates its military police special forces. they after all have a speciial role mainly fighting enemy SOF. Finland has Guerilla, LRRP, Airborne Ranger, Coastal Jaeger and MP units for SOF use."

No. MPs, guerillas and coastal jaegers are not rated as SOF units, they are only common troops but more special branches than common regular infantry. MPs may have to fight enemy special forces while covering targets wich may get attacked by enemy SOF.

Coastal jaegers are common naval infantry and guerillas or should i say rangers are light infantry acting behind enemy lines and strike against supply lines and HQs but NOT SOFs.

Special forces are trained in Utti jaeger regiment where training starts with 12 month airborne ranger training and after graduation rangers can join special force training in 14 months special jaeger course and after graduation from the course they can be deployed in the unit and used on different missions in homeland and EU's missions.

I found a commercial recruiting video wich tries to get young people to join airborne ranger training and reservists to rejoin special force training.

South Korean Marines are considered a special operations unit. Also there are the Army's black berets and the most elite of them is the 707 unit. Also the Rangers.

Would you consider a commando unit SOF? If so does that mean the Royal Marines are SOF?
