Vietnam Navy Purchase 6 “Kilo” class submarine caused the news media have recently read. However, in addition to naval vessels, many Southeast Asian countries also have a series called “Water Monster,” the mysterious force, which is to seize the island accounted for reef divers — vanguard force.
follow the U.S. Navy Seals
divers (Frogman) refers specifically to the Navy submarine combatants. In Southeast Asia, the strongest divers than Vietnam and Singapore. As early as during the Vietnam War, Vietnam attaches great importance to the performance of underwater special operations. In 1969, Vietnam set up a team of 500 people consisting of 126 commandos, is considered the predecessor of the divers unit. During the Vietnam War, 126 commandos had occupied South Vietnam and the Mekong River port of Nansha islands raid. After the reunification of Vietnam, South Vietnam, the military and have control of the Nansha Islands and receiving. Currently, the headquarters of the Vietnamese assault engineering and construction, respectively, and in the province of Long An province, with combat divers school year to develop 30 to 50 divers, the former has bought from North Korea’s “Mountain high” class mini-submarines, mainly for landing and breaking attack enemy ships of the training classes can be implemented underwater assault platoon, while the latter is the main train divers perform reconnaissance, infiltration missions behind enemy lines. Newspaper in Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh and other places are also assembled a first 11A, 11B divers anti-reconnaissance company, these forces and equipment, tactics and organization with the U.S. Navy “Navy Seals” is similar.
Singapore Navy divers set up a special forces command, unified management of underwater special operations forces. Singapore divers forces usually responsible for “anti-hijacking, anti-riot and anti-damage, reverse osmosis” and other anti-terrorism special duty, war is the “airborne, infiltration, harassment, bombings, destruction, capture enemy” and other special operations missions. Singapore’s biggest advantage is the military divers advanced equipment, have the largest tonnage in Southeast Asia “tough” class amphibious landing ship as a mobile platform in the sea a long game. Meanwhile, the new Navy vessels in the Swedish second-hand submarines, divers can perform tasks underwater delivery.
Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines and other countries are also strengthening the divers forces. Currently, Malaysia, Indonesia, two countries have less than 300 divers troops, the general sequence of enlisted in the Marines, the amphibious ships of war by the delivery to the theater. However, their weapons and training to becoming obsolete, particularly because of Indonesia’s navy submarine serious aging, has basically lost underwater penetration capability. It is said that Malaysia, through the French Order “Scorpion” class submarines, Toulon, France has been the help of underwater warfare training school, training for a real plan for the South China Sea and the Malacca Strait combat frogman unit.
in the eyes penetrate
divers in Southeast Asia is the importance of individual combat units. Vietnam, Singapore, training divers will encounter a so-called “Hell Week” this week, the students almost every day can not close their eyes, physical and mental state are stretched to the limit, they will be assessing whether to work together with team spirit .
newspaper that the extra emphasis on the use of force divers to disguise the natural world, even at the manure applied over the body, their training philosophy is: as long as survival on the battlefield, and all training is not over. A Department of Defense organization in Vietnam to observe the activities of foreign military attaches in Vietnam staged a wonderful scene on divers. All visiting military attache there is no obstacle standing in a rice field before, under the watchful eyes staring divers how to covert cross. Less than 10 minutes work, still just another head of the Vietnamese rice fields divers standing on the military attache neatly in front of them coated with mud and grass clippings dirty, hands are holding the bullet loaded AK-47 rifles, allow foreign military attache surprise.
Singapore Taiwan navy divers force modeled after the bursting of the water brigade, training courses, including 30,000 m distance running, swimming and other basic skills training, and steer a boat, ten thousand meters long sea swimming, diving, demolition, and other professional martial training. Singapore divers size of the force is still secret, but it is long-term anti-piracy operations in the Straits of Malacca, often participate in multinational military exercises, experienced, one-man operation can not be ignored. It is worth mentioning that Singapore divers troops to follow U.S. Navy Seals, but also frequently out of the submarine’s torpedo tubes from the harsh training.
China also has divers forces
as many potential attack by a submarine or a boat, divers on the reefs garrison troops a threat more often than conventional ships greater force. Moreover, in the open sea, the defensive side by the reef area restrictions, most of them only deployed long-range surveillance radar or weather radar, basically at the “point to protect surface” of the deployment pattern, lack of capacity to prevent underwater assault. Moreover, these reefs far from the rear base, once the raid was not easy to get support divers, the development of countries in Southeast Asia which became a focus of military divers.
2008 Beijing Olympic Games, China’s South China Sea divers mysterious forces had a brief appearance, perform security tasks. For divers forces, naval experts, Li Jie, “Global Times” reporter, said that divers are specially trained military special forces, and some Southeast Asian countries divers during operations to two days lying in the water This is not an ordinary training can achieve. Know ourselves from the perspective of military divers for Southeast Asian countries, China needs a clear understanding of their situation under the new rules and characteristics, they are targeted to figure out, so units for targeted training. ▲
