SpecOps and SF Displays ~ EUROSATORY 18

Earlier today JOINT-FORCES.com was invited to watch a special media preview of Police and Army Special Operations and Special Forces units in dynamic action at Villepinte Parc des Expositions near Paris, writes Bob Morrison.


Through the course of the day Carl Schulze and myself were privileged to photograph a mobility display of wheeled vehicles laid on by some of the exhibitors at Eurosatory 2018 plus no less than five capability demonstrations, including four by normally secretive elite formations. The five units on display were:-

  • National Police RAID – Recherche Assistance Intervention Dissuasion
  • Paris Prefecture Police Inter-services – BRI, BSPP & CSI
  • Armée de Terre – Light Infantry & Recce
  • Army Special Forces – CFST
  • Gendarmerie Special Task Force – GIGN

In due course we will bring you a series of short photo features on each display, but for the next few days we will be concentrating on covering the main expo at EUROSATORY 18 which formally opens tomorrow.
