Watch The Polish Special Forces’ “Silent Unit” In A Unique Tribute VideoPolish Special Forces
The 4th military branch of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Poland, the Wojska Specjalne, aka Polish Special Troops, is composed of military or police units trained to conduct special operations. However, within this Special Troops Command lies a “Silent Unit,” a military unit named in honour of the Silent Unseen of the Home Army Poland’s GROM, which stands for Group (for) Operational Maneuvering Response (translated into English of course), which also means “thunder.” This is the elite counter-terrorism unit and one of the five special operation forces units of the Polish Armed Forces.
It is deployed in a variety of special operations and unconventional warfare roles, including anti-terrorist operations and projection of force behind enemy lines. The unit was named after the “Silent Unseen”, Poland’s elite World War II special-operations unit, and originally modeled on NATO’s most reputable special operations units such as the U.S. Army’s Delta Force, the U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team Six (DEVGRU) and the British Army’s SAS. That’s what I’d call great company.
