Recently the Regiment took part in a joint excersise in Latvia. Other participants (other than the host nation) were American Naval Special Warfare, Norwegian Special Operations and Estonian Commandos.
The pea shooter issue came up more than once before. Thing is, what is the Regiments main focus? Hostage rescue is GROMs back yard (even if L -boys proved to be more than capable in that element), Naval Special Warfare (VBBS and GOPLAT) is Formozas buisnes. Will there be a change? Hard to tell, mainly because right now there are more pressing issues. As time goes, more and more equipment will be changed/modernaised. But for now their piece of the money cake is as it is. And a coler sub gun looks to be a less of a priority...
Recently, elements the Regiment took part in a training exercise Scorpion XIV. Its purpuse was to verify its readynes to take up rotation as part of TF-50.
It's component will be augmented by elements from Polish Naval Special Warfare unit Formoza.
A few new ones from the Certification. Note that some of the guys are sporting slightly different gucci gear - they are our NSWU Formoza. This will be their second time as part of TF-50.
There are voices that it's kind of a bum deal, but that's Command for 'ya.
