And lets not forget 35th Signal Brigade and 525 MI Brigade, both part of 18th Airborne Corps.

I'm sure there are quite a few more we're forgetting.

If we are going to include Special ops units and supporting units that are Para qual'd that list is woefully short, ive limited my responces to Paratroop units only, i.e. airborne Inf.

I should of put it in another posting, not International SOF. More like international military, and I knew it was lacking, just thought it was interesting.

2nd Recon Regiment soldiers also have parachute training. Afair they suppose to become smth like Long Range Reconnaissance regiment.

I've read some article about our Psyops group, and idea of creating small airborne section, but not sure If they have created it or not.

As for POLSOFCOM units, I guess that also the newest unit in this part of Polish armed forces(Special Forces) which is JWDiZWS(NIL) may have some parachute training as well.

Holy necrothread! Bbbrrrrrraaaaiiinnnnnnnsssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, some of those units no longer exist and were canned, removed from status, or rolled into current units, not to mention those which were created since '07.

We could update it, but it would take some work.
