As with most of my countrys Special Operations Forces, photos of GROM are rare, especially those taken during missions/operations.
These two were taken in Ghansi not long ago:





Provides a small up-to-date glimpse into the Units equpiment.

Still, one must ask him self: how is it that a Tier1 SOF/CT unit is being photographed, and photos posted on the internetz for the world to see....

It strikes me how 'small' this GROM dude is. Guess it's all in the head.
Hi, do you mean this guy on the ground? Judging by his helmet he's not from GROM, but I may be wrong of course. Anyway, not only GROM guys were allowed to participate in this training, so he could be from different SOF unit(eg 1st Reg or NIL).
