The Pakistan Army Special Service Group (SSG),colloquially known as the Maroon Berets:173 due to their distinctive service headgear, is the special operations force of the Pakistan Army mandated and tasked with their five primary missions: foreign internal defense, reconnaissance, direct actions, counter-terrorism, and the unconventional warfare– their most important mission.

The Special Service Group’s other roles included the combat search and rescue, seek and destroy, counter-proliferation, military hostage rescue, information operations, peacekeeping missions, psychological operations, security assistance, and enemy manhunts.

The command and control of the special forces fall in the domain of the Pakistan Army’s Strategic Forces Command (ASFC), and its personnel are directly recruited into ISI’s Covert Action Division (CAD) upon their retirements. Many of their operational work and war techniques are kept in secrecy and knowledge of their work became known in public through the published literary work by the army veterans or authorized documentaries in the news media.

The Pakistan Armed Forces (Urdu: پاکستان مُسَلّح افواج‎, Pākistān Musāllah Afwāj) are the military forces of Pakistan. They are the sixth largest in the world in terms of active military personnel and the largest among Muslim countries. The armed forces comprise four main service branches – Army, Navy, Air Force and paramilitary forces and the Strategic Plans Division Force. Chain of command of the military is organised under the Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (JCSC) alongside chiefs of staff of the army, navy, and air force. All of the branches work together during operations and joint missions under the Joint Staff Headquarters (JS HQ).

Since the 1963 Sino-Pakistan Agreement, the military has had close military relations with China, working jointly to develop the JF-17, the K-8, and other weapons systems. As of 2013, China was the second-largest foreign supplier of military equipment to Pakistan. Both nations also co-operate on development of nuclear and space technology programs. Their armies have a schedule for organising joint military exercises. The military also maintains close relations with the United States, which gave Pakistan major non-NATO ally status in 2004. Pakistan gets the bulk of its military equipment from local domestic suppliers, China, and the United States.

The armed forces were formed in 1947 when Pakistan became independent from the British Empire. Since then, the armed forces have played a decisive role in the modern history of Pakistan, fighting major wars with India in 1947, 1965 and 1971, and on several occasions seizing control of the government. The need for border management led to the creation of paramilitary forces to deal with civil unrest in the North-West and security of border areas in Punjab and Sindh by paramilitary troops. In 2017, there were approximately 654,000 active personnel in the armed forces, excluding 25,000–35,000+ personnel in the Strategic Plans Division Forces and 482,000 active personnel in the paramilitary forces. The armed forces have a large pool of volunteers so conscription has never been needed, though the Pakistani constitution and supplementary legislation allow for conscription in a state of war.

Accounting for 18.5% of national government expenditure in 2018, after interest payments, Pakistan’s military absorbs the largest part of the country’s budget. The armed forces are generally highly approved of in Pakistani society. Since the founding of Pakistan, the military has played a key role in holding the state together, promoting a feeling of nationhood and providing a bastion of selfless service. As of May 2019, Pakistan was the sixth-largest contributor to United Nations peacekeeping efforts, with 5,083 personnel deployed overseas. Other foreign deployments have consisted of Pakistani military personnel serving as military advisers in African and Arab countries. The Pakistani military has maintained combat divisions and brigade-strength presences in some of the Arab countries during the Arab–Israeli Wars, aided the Coalition forces in the first Gulf War, and took part in the Somali and Bosnian conflicts.

  1. Pakistan has 4 ssg groups army ssg navy ssg airforce ssg and police ssg but army ssg is greater better faster and world reconize and more professional I say

  2. SSG are the Special Services Group, so I guess they are equivalent to your special forces .

    The reason they are trained differently is because of the different circumstances they face. Suicide bombing, Talibaans, Al Qaida etc etc. All these situations happen in the "Waziristan" part of the country and the borders of Afghanistan, those are hilly areas , culdesacs, dry lands which is why we're seeing them train on mountains

  3. I'm only some Pakistani 13 yr old but what you have seen are commandos from the SSG branch training. They are the 7th strongest army in the world, The weapons you saw were colt m16s or m4a1, AK47, rpg, and glocks. The snipers they use are Steyr SSG 69, Accuracy International Arctic Warfare, Barrett M82, and etc. One final thing, this special group was established in 1956. And Military Combat Network you guys used wikipedia for what you wrote in the description.

  4. Im asian British but me mum has a relative who is in the army in Pak Army. As far as i know thats just standard training or slightly above standard training as they dont want to show the special force's in action to keep the ISI secret etc

  5. SSG is the highest level designated special forces in the country. ISI is, a strong intelligence agency. Overall Army/military is the strong suit of Pakistan, one of the toughest military in the world for sure, hopefully we get out of economic crisis so we can deploy more budget and resources to the military and make it more advance, more well equipped and innovate it.

  6.

  7. Moses could take the crap out of them better known as Akhenaten Relations of Jesus Yusuf Ali Hill Saa laam Din . My advice is watch Mulan the Daughter represented Father Which is Which Witch is Witch Taklamakan Desert .

  8. They use a lot of propaganda videos there's nothing like the Frank legion and Interpol the training of of cadets the British forces trending engineering survival adaptation

  9. remember dinosaurs they got extinct they changed into chickens because chickens build borders then the chicken freezes at the border for example India and Pakistan border draw a line on your find the chicken will freeze thinking it's somebody's pecker and the chicken waits for the the line to move like a worm and the wait for the dollars to fall from the sky

  13. There three of these group, SSG(Special Services Group )of Military, SSN(Special Services Naval) of Navy, SSW(Special Services Wing) of Air force. Best ones are SSN

  14. If you wanted a conversation with someone in the Pak Army, I have a cousin who would be a good source of information. He’s been posted on the LOC at Siachin recently and he can give you a good insight into the Army procedures and SOPs.

  15. Our army training includes leaving an under training soldier in the middle of a forest with only a knife and 500ml of water and they say them to come out of thete themselves and if they die its their own resposibility…they also throw a soldier in the midle of dam to swim back to the corner..their training is really hard.

  16. SSG is special force and you choose only flashing videos. There are many better ones which will make you question your training. Google plz.

  17. INN-IT BRUV? INN-IT? nah I’m playing. With love from Toronto 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦. But you guys should check out the world competition which takes place every year. Pakistan wins every year, by the grace of GOD
