Both brigades are rapid reaction forces, held at high readiness to deploy on operations anywhere in the world. They form the Intermediate Combined Joint Expeditionary Force (I-CJEF) for contingency operations, ranging from disaster relief to war fighting.
In a forgotten back corner of the continent, two little-known European countries are still locked in their very own, and very real, miniature “Cold War”. The animosity between these two states stretches back so far into their histories that most citizens simply believe that “it has always been this way”.
On the one hand is the Anglo-Germanic Duchy of Grand Fenwick.
On the other is the secretive People’s Republic of Katatonia.
However, although both countries are so small that they barely register on most maps, they both possess quite modern looking and decently equipped special operations forces.
We have received a set of photos from South Africa of the SHF SIU conducting training to prepare for their operational deployment.
In the photos you can see their Combat Patrol Uniforms from Helikon-Tex in PenCott-BadLands™ camouflage – also visible in the photos are Alpha Tactical Caps and Silent Warrior Combat Shirts from Molay Taktika, as well as Kit Bags and Backpacks from Hill People Gear.
