The GSG-9 draws its members from the German Border Guards. The unit was formed after the Olympics massacre of Israeli atheletes in Munich i think. Its main claim to fame is the sucessful operation in Mogadishu airport which happend in 1976 or 1977.

THe German Army has recently instituted a Special Operations Command , the KSK, which might, in the future develop such a capability.

Not totally sure but I think they are called "SEAL", aren't they? And do they really destroy ships and ports?

Ive never heard of "sail"-that doesnt mean it doesnt exist though.

Seals however do sneak into enemy ports and do nasty things :smile:.So maybe they are who you mean.

I don't know if infantry can attack ships, but if they could, they would not sink a ship automatically because everything has a strength which requires multiple hits... and chances are the infantry will lose then.

US Navy SEAL Units ("SEa, Land, and Air" Maritime Special Operations Forces) are a bit of a combination between a Special Forces unit and a small-team Commando force.

They tend to be dispatched in squad or platoon size, for special tasks (such as noted above, demolition or sabotage etc).

They are a bit hard for us to simulate because they don't fight as a battalion; instead their Commando-style makes them something better handled by our "Ops" section (not yet implemented...)

On the other hand, while a SEAL team might be good at disrupting communications or creating localized havoc, I really can't see them very effective against a deployed enemy such as a ship at sea. So I don't think they'll be showing up as a separate unit in the game...
