Lots of kuhl stuff from KOMMANDO – International Special Operations Magazine

The latest issue of KOMMANDO has been out for a couple of weeks now, and as usual is packed full of great articles, superb photography and excellent reviews.

Also released recently is KOMMANDO’s first MISSIONS special edition, this one covering counter-insurgency operations in Afghanistan.  Their coverage begins with “Operation Infinite Reach” in 1998, then jumps ahead to “Operation Infinite Justice” in 2001, and then devotes the rest of the 204 pages to “Operation Enduring Freedom” and ISAF up to 2010.

Also just released is the latest special edition from KOMMANDO, this one covering the “Waffen und Ausruestung deutscher Sondereinheiten: Polizei und Militaer” (Weapons and Equipment of German Special Units: Police and Military).  This volume does exactly what it says on the tin, its 112 pages of up-close-and-personal, original reportage and photography providing an almost overwhelming amount of detail about everything from machine guns to multi-tools, pistols to pyrotechnics and everything in between.

One of my favourite things about this edition is that it presents a few interesting looks back at historical units and loadouts, as well as the most up to-date and ultra-modern gear.  Check out these two examples below that brilliantly illustrate how far things have come in the past 20-30 years.

And finally, KOMMANDO have some kool kit in their shop now as well, such as this series of great wall posters:

And these rather nice t-shirts too:
