North Korean special forces called the world’s largest special forces (Figure)

Korean War armistice agreement is signed. Responding to North Korea ROK coalition air and sea superiority of their own can not overcome, so start preparing for special operations, hoping to use unconventional means of warfare equipment to offset each other’s strengths. To this end, North Korea established a maximum size of special forces on the planet. Presumably, the total number of North Korean special forces up to 88,000, accounting for 9% of the proportion of the Army, that the Korean Army soldiers in every 100 people, nine are special forces.
generally considered to be cream of the crop of elite special forces, while North Korea is miles to pick one. In fact, this is not to say that, because North Korea’s special operations theory with Europe and the Soviet Union are not the same. In general, European and American special forces often behind enemy lines as the detection of a special detachment of the liner or the use of special forces is relatively large given the discretion, and the former Soviet Union, mainly in the elite special forces soldiers assault mode of existence, often before the implementation of the investigation or the sabotage of the fixed target task and therefore the skills required of man is relatively high, and often more powerful man to carry fire.
If U.S. special forces similar to the scalpel, the Soviet special forces on a similar Yuchang Jian. The DPRK and the two factions are not the same, is entirely a jungle ax. North Korea’s special operations close to the Soviet ideology, but often the special forces as shock troops to use force, even in this Part to be in North Korea, the military demarcation line near the assault but also by the presence of some special forces hard.
because the outside world is difficult to understand the Korean situation, this huge North Korean special forces are more mysterious. Few decades, the Korean people almost have no contact with the outside world, so regardless of temperament or the dress is very difficult to integrate into a foreign background. However, the maximum protection of special forces combat victory is not the more advanced weapons, how strong man’s combat capability, but rather the sudden battle, most North Korean special forces is precisely the lack of ability to camouflage in the enemy area.
With the widening gap between economic strength and the outside world, this situation will become worse. So North Korea is widely considered a strong special forces, probably not in actual combat operations to play a super capacity. (According to the “New Century Weekly,” Zhujiang Ming/text)
