SANDF – SPECIAL FORCES TODAY
The needs within the African Union context influences the utilization of the SA Special Forces today. They need to be ready to act in any conflict spots in Africa and to support of our officials abroad. This is a daunting operational environment. Soldiers operate very far from their support lines and need to deploy and operate alone. This requires a very high standard of training.
The SA Special Forces Brigade consists of five organizational entities:
– The Head Office – SFHQ
– The Special Forces school
– The Special Forces Supply Unit
– 4 Special Forces Regiment
– 5 Special Forces Regiment
