JOINED-UP THINKING
The campaign to counter Daesh in the Middle East has centered around air strikes, but operations so close to civilians require effective control from special operations forces on the ground to ensure the right targets are being hit.

RAISING SIGHTS
Flexible, yet capable weapon sights are a vital element in a Special Forces' toolset, and industry is providing a number of new solutions to overcome issues previously associated with the technology.

LATIN LEADERS
Latin American Special Forces are diverse in capabilities and presence, but have all evolved over the past decade through both domestic programs and assistance from foreign industry.

Q&A
