Aimed at exploiting hostile forces' economic, psychological, and political vulnerabilities, its tenacious and brutal tactics infiltrate, erode, and exhaust the enemy from many angles. Special Forces personnel spreading subversion deep behind enemy lines must be prepared to navigate and survive bone-chillingly dangerous situations at any moment; knowing how to handle, improvise, and modify incendiary devices is a crucial component of their training.
