Word from the Commander of the Special Forces Group.
LCL (Land) Raphaël Bechet, Commander of the (BEL) Special Forces Group
The Special Forces Group represents less than 1% of the personnel within the Belgian Defense, but generates a very high operational output.
The incredible commitment of all SF Gp members and their wide variety of talents and qualities makes the whole greater than the sum of its parts. To achieve missions of Operational and Strategic importance, every member of the SF Gp counts: from the weapon technician in the unit’s armory, to the operator breaching a door with explosives.
WHO DARES WINS.
Our people love the job they are doing and they will always strive for improvement.
Not only they believe change is possible, but they will make those changes happen.
To be able to board an ship at night with several operators capable of neutralizing targets, you need months of very hard training and special skills. But it also requires Intelligence specialists, operational planners, logistical magicians, communication gurus,…
We permanently search, attract and form talented personal in all domains.
Even if our roots remain in rusticity and in the ability to accomplish a mission in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment with limited support, the SF Gp strongly believes that technological advantage is a game changer. Therefore, we encourage our collaborators to follow innovations in the different domains of expertise. This results in a constant evolution of our material, methods and organizational structure.
In modern warfare, stopping to evolve leads to extinction. Hence, we adapt in a constant pursuit of excellence.
