Polish Army Spec Ops

Polish Special Forces Soldiers from the Elite 1 Pułk Specjalny Komandosów, 1 PSK (en. 1st Special Commando Regiment, 1st Special Forces Regiment) is one of the three special operations forces currently operating within the Polish military's structure, Special Forces of Poland.

Thanks to the unit's high recruiting standards, and a special training programme the Regiment implemented several years ago, the unit's soldiers display a higher level of skill and professionalism, when compared to other Polish forces. The Regiment's troops are trained to undertake a wide range of special missions during war, crisis, peace, with its troops being capable of conducting air assault, helicopter, and parachute operations (including HALO and HAHO operations); strategic and tactical reconnaissance operations; raids and ambushes; frogman and underwater attack missions; providing support to other specialist units during hostage rescue operations; and other missions as deemed necessary.
