Special forces

The Special Jaeger Battalion trains special forces for the Finnish Army.[4] Conscripts are trained in both long range recon, Sissi, MOUT and Air Assault operations. The Battalion includes an Airborne Jaeger Company for the training of conscripts, a Special Jaeger Company consisting of enlisted personnel who have a reserve officer or NCO training, and Military Police School, responsible for the training of career military police personnel of the Finnish Defence Forces.

The Finnish special forces trace their history to the four long-range patrol units (Kaukopartio-osastot) of the 4th Detached Battalion (Erillinen Pataljoona 4) which fought in the Continuation War.
