  1. The paratroopers of Folgore Brigade are in A-stan yet for three months, and I think that they are a good job (they are the best conventional light infantry brigade in Italian Army, and I hope to will be an officer in this brigade).
    The Folgore is formed by 3 paratroopers infantry regiments:
    -183rd "Nembo" regiment
    -186th and 187th "Folgore" regiments
    one egineers regiment (train to re-build up bridges and road but also as anti IED/EOD):
    -8th "Folgore" regiment
    and two special regiments
    -9th "Col Moschin" regiments (the Special Forces of Italian Army)
    the trooper of this regiment are hard train to HAHO/HALO procedures, diving, fast drive, IED/EOD, sniping, trasmitions, CQB and hostage rescue (but there is a specific regiment in the carabinieri or military police), and other special procedures.
    -185th acquisition objective regiment, this regiment is meanly train to LRRP and GLTD.
