Norway Has The World’s First All-Female Special Forces Unit



NBC: Inside the World’s First All-Female Special Forces Unit: Norway’s Jegertroppen

ELVERUM, Norway — An explosion just a few feet away rocks the unmarked station wagon as it travels along a dirt road in the Norwegian woodland.

Immediately, two soldiers jump from their front seats and run for cover behind the carcass of an old, rusty tank. Firing their weapons at targets along the snow-covered hillside, they call for support from the rest of their unit.

This firefight is just a drill, but the soldiers taking part are battling to break down one of the final barriers to women serving in the armed forces. They are training to become part of Norway's Jegertroppen or "Hunter Troops" — the world's first all-female military special forces unit.

It makes sense to employ women in combat role it doubles the fodder, after all, if the west had to fight China for example, China has more women of military age than the US has people. In order to go toe to toe with China in a conventional war, we will have to convince women to join the men in the meat grinder, I suspect that is what this push to get women into combat roles is about. In the war that is coming everyone, men, women, gays,different races, young and old etc, will have to take bite off the big shit sandwich.

The all-female "special forces" unit is roughly equivalent to a standard infantry platoon if you go by fitness requirements. It's nowhere near the same standard as that of the regular special forces unit in Norway.
