Special forces of the world "North Korea" (part 3)

Special Forces in Korea - more than special forces.
In order to successfully carry out these tasks, the fighters of the special forces detachments undergo special training, which differs markedly from the training of a regular soldier.


They overcome 10 km per hour, while carrying 25-kilogram sandbags on their shoulders. They force 400-meters (standard!) Across the width of the river - but in the coldest seasons. Prepared for survival under conditions of complete autonomy, the special forces are able to eat even frog caviar and are well aware of the fitness of tree bark for food.

Special forces of the world "North Korea" (part 3)
special forces of the army of the DPRK in a "combat" setting, camouflage, typical sovestsky "leaves" of 1950's


They "roll" the ability to accurately hit moving targets at a distance of 200-400 meters, doing this every day for at least 15 minutes. More than 30 minutes per day are practiced in knife throwing - also DAILY. They are trained to turn into the most effective and deadly cold weapon even ordinary cutlery (spoons, chopsticks, forks). In the trainings of taekwondo, the special forces work exclusively in full contact, and the very idea of ​​using rubber models and plastic mock-ups instead of military weapons for the special forces is simply absurd.

The service life in the land forces of the KPA is 5-8 years, and the special forces serve "to the maximum." Structurally, special forces are represented by the so-called 10. “Sniper” brigades, 12 th light infantry brigades, 17 th separate reconnaissance and 1 th airborne battalions. Being the most numerous in the world, the special forces have in their ranks more than 90 thousand fighters.


January 9, Pyongyang, North Korea. Special Forces fighters take an annual course to improve combat capability during harsh winter weather conditions.

In accordance with the concept of using special forces at the initial stage of military operations, the load on them will be incredible. Almost all the RDGs that first set foot on enemy territory are faced with identical tasks: sabotage on transport arteries — the destruction of airfields, roads, bridges, and tunnels; destruction of headquarters, communications centers, warehouses and warehouses; destruction of power lines and communications; physical elimination of military personnel and technical personnel serving strategic enemy targets.

According to the testimony of a few defectors, an important element in the training of elite KPA fighters is also training in “self-withdrawal” methods: special forces are ready to sacrifice their own lives if necessary — in the event of unforeseen circumstances, when task execution and withdrawal become impossible. (The special forces carried by the reconnaissance groups to the rear of the enemy explosives were attached directly to the body of the fighters, which practically reduced to zero the likelihood of capturing even a surrounded special forces prisoner alive).

The commandos bring up the sincere conviction that all their activities are carried out exclusively in the interests of the party, the homeland and the people. And there is no reason to doubt the result: the highest level of moral and psychological training of KPA special forces is recognized by all. Representatives of a potential adversary, familiar with the amazing dedication of the Northerners, are no exception. The proud title of the guard of the Great Leader is special right to the KPA special forces.

Alas, the only sources of information about the KPA that can still be served are the coffers of foreign media and the testimony of a few eyewitnesses, who were fortunate enough to meet directly with one of the most closed countries of the 21st century. So, what do we know about the North Korean military elite?

The KPA special forces raid actions continue to this day — the likelihood of the start of a new war has not disappeared, as well as the mutual maintenance of preparedness for it: in addition to sabotage and reconnaissance operations, the commandos also cover the deployed agents. All this is in the combat conditions of the border and rear areas of a completely non-virtual enemy! At the same time, taking into account the difficult economic and social conditions, in the situation of a significant military-technical backwardness, the KPA command relies on special forces and units. They play the role of strike force in a potentially possible battle with the "imperialists." (It is the special forces who are called upon to equalize the chances in the fight against the enemy, which is noticeably superior to the KPA in material and technical terms).

    As I saw the transmission about the troops of North Korea, there is a girl of about 18 years old, with two TTs they knocked out 14 targets at a distance of 50 meters seconds in 5.

    The more numerous special forces, the lower the level of their professional training. At its core, the DPRK special forces are the airborne forces of the times of the USSR. The level of training is really a cut above conventional troops, but they are not up to the real special forces. Special forces-goods piece. Like our airborne-they are more well-trained attack aircraft. Inside the troops there are real special forces units (an analogue of our 45th regiment of special forces), but not all 90 thousand. But in any troops of this type, morale is actually high.

      The fact of the matter is that their constant number is 90 people, the service life is 000 years, and if you count with those laid off in reserve? How many specialists do we have? And this despite the fact that they are being actively disbanded. I'm talking about army spn

      Do you know the topic for sure? or so, just to blur something. Maybe there special forces are prepared in small groups harmonious, worked out. But not in bulk.

    Somehow I had read the list of threats to the Republic of Korea from the DPRK in the event of a military conflict.
    So, there, as a threat No. 1, there was a "missile and artillery strike on Seoul" (the capital of the Republic of Kazakhstan is not too far from the border), and as threat No. 2, a breakthrough into the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan of this very elite sabotage corps was which in the event of war includes the destruction and destabilization of enemy infrastructure.
    It is difficult to assess their level of training due to the closed nature of the country, but I have such a suspicion that these saboteurs are bruised all 24 hours without being removed for all 8 years. Of course, someone is weaker, someone is stronger (VIKTOR correctly wrote that a true commando is piece goods), but still this corps is really a terrible force.

    The principle "The size of the military is inversely proportional to the level of training" is suitable for ordinary states, often democratic or near-democratic, where the army is not the main social elevator in society. But you forget that the DPRK, to put it mildly, is not a completely ordinary country, but a super-militarized (even by socialist standards) totalitarian state, with all the ensuing minuses, but also pluses, is a kind of Asian Sparta.
    This means that the mass of special troops there may well be combined with a high level of training. The army, and special forces, respectively, there is the only social elevator, the most prestigious part of society, they simply feed better there, so everyone wants to get there.
    In addition, the lack of civil rights and all sorts of committees of soldiers' mothers allows commanders to squeeze soldiers out by 300 percent, especially since Koreans are generally hardworking and persistent in training like no one else. Plus brainwashing, which gives an incredibly high morale, which is the most important thing in special forces. Plus, ten years of training, coupled with an archaeologically advanced pre-war training system. Give the officer the most shitty human material, give him absolute power over them, vitally interest them all (you can’t do it, shoot them), at the same time rinse your brains properly, and after a certain time you will get thugs no worse than CAC and our Special Forces GRU.
    In addition, do not forget that, unlike the USSR and the USA, the DPRK special forces are beloved offspring, the only hope and main weapon in the event of a war, that means all the attention. Even with us, the GRU Special Forces always remained the unloved stepson of Min. Defense, the main factor was missiles and tank armada.
    Any specialist will tell you that if you have years and decades to study the terrain, prepare the operation and implement it, then the operation will be 100% successful. South Korea is the size of the Moscow region, language, appearance and customs are almost indistinguishable, the population density is grammadic.
    Maybe the majority of Kimov’s army plows on the beds and construction sites, but the special forces are most likely only engaged in combat training. By the way, spetsnaz is generally a very cheap type of armed forces, with all its effectiveness, the main thing is to have absolute power, not to soar over civil rights, and then you can sculpt everything you need from human material.

    I will not hide, I read your comment with MUCH interest and I agree with you from the first letter to the last. One feels a deep knowledge of the subject, so I won’t be surprised if you are an active or retired special forces officer.
    It would be GREAT for people like you in this professional forum for people who are not indifferent to the army.
    In connection with your comment, I will allow myself two questions for you:
    1) What parts of the Special Forces, in terms of training and practical use, do you put above the rest (I mean the whole world)? You can’t get carried away with patriotism, simple objectivity is better.
    2) Do you think that the ideological, psycho-emotional component in the preparation of parts of the Special Forces should prevail over the financial? Roughly speaking, what is better for training a professional - HIGH salary or HIGH idea?
    Thanks in advance. Mitrich is still in solidarity with you.

    How special forces can be cheaper than conventional troops. I fundamentally disagree. Secondly, the more special forces in terms of numbers, the less training there is. It’s not enough, if any, to equip Koreans. Some parachutes are from 60 years. What can we say about walkie-talkies and uniforms.

      Do you know how much it costs a state to maintain one aviation regiment, one tank brigade or one submarine per year? You know how much all this extremely complicated equipment, its maintenance, operation costs. How much fuel is needed. You wonder how unreliable even the most advanced technology in the event of a real war? And how much time and money do you need to train trained crews and pilots? How much money does one motorized infantry division of conscripts consume?
      Parachutes from the 60s? And then they’ll be straight from parachutes! Do not be captive to the stereotypes of the Second World War. They have long had a sophisticated infiltration system through underground tunnels, a developed intelligence network and ultra-small submarines. As for the parachutes of the 60s, then our special forces of the GRU and the Airborne Forces, I will tell you a secret, in the mass jumps on the same old ones as the mammoth shit D5 and D6 from the old An-2 (6 jumps a year).
      As for weapons, even with an old reliable AKM with PBS, PB, the old RPG-7, PC, you can do quite well (although as I understand it, they will mainly use American weapons on the territory of the enemy, they definitely have it by the way). Anyway, the main weapon of a saboteur is mines and explosives in a backpack, he is not the hero of cheap militants.
      Ammunition? Judging by the well-known cases, they use the uniform of the South Korean army and ordinary civilian clothes, in the case of chaos in the first hours and days of the war this will be enough, they are saboteurs, not Remba with speckled berets or other attack aircraft, they will operate in the rear.

      See these feeble goners? Do you see a mountain of super-equipped equipment and weapons on them? And ammunition is not so hot. Some shorts and a panama hat. Of the weapons, only AKMS and TT with a knife. But this is one of the most powerful and dangerous in the world of DIVERSION special forces. It will be cooler than any Green Berets and racers with CAC. They even our Pennant did not consider it shameful to learn

      I am not saying that modern equipment and sophisticated weapons are not needed at all, it’s just not the main thing in these special forces, especially in sabotage units.

    the country is completely closed. Where does the info come from? All these are speculations and fantasies on a free theme ... the fact is mass hunger for several years. Where will the miracle special forces come from? If a teenager is chronically malnourished - what are the chances of making him a fighter? weapons and equipment also raise numerous questions ..

      You know, Dmitry, it’s often from malnourished and starving in childhood that you get excellent slodat. They already have a psyche and emotional stamina more stable. Deprivation and stress are more easily tolerated. And vice versa, those who ate their fill since childhood and slept sweetly under their mother’s care rarely become a good soldier.
      In the end, our generation of 20-30 is the same village boys from collective farms who were chronically undernourished during those hungry years, but they managed to break the Wehrmacht ridge, not least because of their amazing stamina, unpretentiousness and the ability to deprivation.
      And most importantly, the fighters of North Korean sabotage units do not at all live starving, unlike the rest of the country.
      Here's what Bruce Bechtol Jr., a North Korean specialist who teaches at the US Marine Corps Academy in Quantico, writes;
      "these are not ordinary North Korean guys, they are well prepared, fed and equipped, they are loyal to the regime, they know how to fight and, if they are captured, trained to commit suicide." It seems to me that a person knows what he’s talking about, and he knows more than ours , this is actually his profession and specialty.
      And here is what A.N. Kochergin: "... Who is at the forefront of special forces training ?! Today is North Korea, Vietnam, Russia.
      You ask, where did I get this from? Well, firstly, I have some materials labeled "for official use", which set out the requirements for specialists in different countries, and secondly, the methods of mental preparation of almost all special forces in the world are absolutely known. Well, the main thing is that in these countries they taught not by books what, where and why. "

        "Our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against the spirits of evil, the heavens ..." The spirit of the army always and everywhere decided. The most sophisticated weapon is useless if the soldier does not have a spiritual core and a high level of training of mind and body.
