SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA - SEPTEMBER 7: South Korean Special Weapons Attack Team (SWAT) members patrol in front of the U.S. embassy on September 7, 2004, in Seoul, South Korea. The government tightened security for possible terror attacks in the build up to the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Re: Another Pic of South Korean Swat

I've heard that their SWAT and riot control teams
can be VERY rough with protestors.

Nice picture Chef.

You've heard correctly. Their military and police don't take crap off of anyone. ROK Marines are hardcore.

Re: Another Pic of South Korean Swat (Updated)

Thanks for the pics! I´m happy I can go all this weekend out of home knowing you are surfing the web. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif When I´ll become old, I´ll sit in front of the chimney and will tell my grandsons the story of Swedish Chef, the nordic man who brought each day, rainy or sunny, cloudy or cloudless, the best "in action" pics to HKPRO.com /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Those in red berrets are from police central SWAT unit - 868 Unit. Those in green berrets are from local SWAT unit from Inchon (I think all policemen from local SWAT units have green berrets but I could be wrong. I'm sure that SWAT from Inchon has green ones).

Seems they use not only German guns, but also German armored cars ... unless I'm very mistaken, that's a Sonderwagen 4 right there.

Re: Another Pic of South Korean Swat

This reminds me of a story relayed to me by a friend who is a former DI in the US army. There was a soldier in his training cycle that had been in the Korean military or was on loan for cross training (I forget the specifics), but anyhow he was a veteran in a class of total new guys. At line up one morning one of the recruits was in a sorry disheveled state. The DI, knowing that someone with experience could help guide the poor slob, said in a commanding voice, "PRIVATE PAK, PLEASE HELP PRIVATE JACKASS SQUARE HIMSELF AWAY!". Private Pak did the only logical thing. He turned and punched Private Jackass square in the mouth.
Not exactly what the DI had in mind and difficult for him to explain throught the tears of laughter that he meant just help him get himself together.

Then there was the Iranian in the airport...
