The Austria Army has deployed a reconnaissance team to conduct a ground appreciation study ahead of the possible deployment of up to 20 members of special forces (Jagdkommando) to fight resurgent terrorist groups in northern Mali.

According to IHS Janes, the ‘Jagdkommando’ could soon be deployed with several air-transportable units of the VT Hunter 4X4 Open Tactical Vehicles (OTVs) to support the multinational special forces component of the French Army’s Operation Barkhane in Mali.
