Special Forces   SF
Portable radio sets used by special operations forces (SOF)

Special Forces (SF) or Special Operations Forces (SOF), are military units, trained to conduct special operations, such as airborne operations, counter-insurgency, counter-terrorism, foreign internal defense, covert operations (covert ops), direct action, hostage rescue, intelligence operations and unconventional warfare. Most countries in the world have one or more (secret) SF units, operating under a variety of names, like Fernspäher (Germany), Spetsnaz (Russia) and Special Forces (USA). Special forces are often named Commandos (UK) after the British WWII specially trained troops [1].
