    For Ronin/ question Canadian Airborne

    A friend of mine, a real Soldier of Fortune reader told me that the Canda's armed forces had disbanded their airborne unit since it acted too agressively on some peace keeping mission. Is this true?

    2) How large was this force?
    3) What was the training like?

    4) Did you ever see the secret contingency plans to invade the U.S. and if so where was the drop zone :) Was it in a good place to shoot n' loot.

    The Airborn Rigement was disbanded and the soilders assigned to other regiments beacuse of various factors, paramount was a fiasco in Somalia, where a national was tortured to death and a "hazing" video that was released to the public showing "unappropriate and dishonorable" behaviour of newly capped soldiers.
    That was the offical version and before my time.

    I have NO idea how many airborne are in the Canadian Military right now.
    The training was great, we got to train with the SAS from GB and some nice "exchange" programs with your SEALS and SF.

    We don't need to invade the US, you guys ALREADY love our beer and play our national game(s).

    I corrected the Rowanda thing, I was thinking of something else ( unoffical).

    The reason I remembered it as Somalia was because a friend of mine was in SF and worked a little with the Canadian Airborne while he was there. He told me about the incident and the repercussions.

    Yeah, it was pretty bad, be to be honest, it was used as an excuse to disban the regiment due to internal politics.

    That was pretty much the feeling he had. He said they were good troops.

    The regiment was BEFORE my time, by the time I was in the army, it have been disbanded and scattered. Nowadays you go to airborn training from your unit, qualify and come back to your original unit.
    You can apply to "special operations units" also.
    Its part of the "advanced militray occupation training and specialty training - adavanced training course - specialty training courses" .
