Special forces trigger Latin American exercise | Shephard Media 

Special Forces from across Latin America started the annual Fuerzas Comando competition in Paraguay on 18 July as they seek to improve doctrine, concepts of operation and tactics across the joint operating environment.

Organised by the US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) and host nation Paraguay, the competition will run through to 27 July and is aimed at enhancing interoperability between participating force components and developing tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) in the areas of ‘special operations’ and counter-terrorism (CT).

This year’s event comprises a special operations team from each of the 20 participating countries, with training serials focused on testing ‘strength, endurance and perseverance’, official sources informed Shephard.

Participating countries include Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay as well as a team from the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) as well as the host nation.
