Luftwaffe 2009
(Englisch)


Special Operations Forces (SOF) play an increasingly significant role within the armed forces of almost all NATO Countries as an inevitable response to the threats of the 21st century. For understandable reasons you will find a very reserved media coverage on SOF - even in professional military publications - adding to the mysterious touch it already has. SOF of various NATO countries are partially looking back on a long tradition and are training and operating under national command.
Against the background of current requirements for NATO as a military alliance an urgent need for coordination emerged especially since SOFs from different nations operate side by side against terrorism for example in Afghanistan. Reasons enough for the NATO SOF Transformation Initiative at NATO HQ in Mons to establish a NATO SOF Coordination Centre NSCC, achieving Full Operational Capability at the end of 2008.
