The 602 Commando Company (Spanish: Compañía de Comandos 602) is a special operations unit of the Argentine Army, created May 21, 1982.

The company is based on Córdoba Province. The members of the unit wear green berets with unit badges. The company is divided in 3 assault sections.

They fought in the Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas). The commander of the company was Major Aldo Rico.

The first section fought in the Battle of Top Malo House on 31 May 1982. The section was defeated and the survivors captured in the encounter with the British Mountain and Arctic Warfare Cadre, a Royal Marines unit, attached to the 3 Commando Brigade.[1]

The second section uncovered an Observation Post manned by Royal Marines commandos near Mount Wall on 10 June, seizing communications equipment and forcing the British to withdraw with the support of artillery fire.
