    Consider the type of training required for AT: CQB, hit and run, ambush execution and protection, VIP protection, kinetic entry, sniping. All of this forms the groundwork for behind enemy lines action.

    Thats all training.

    A lot of BEL took place in 1980's and 1990's.

    Check out the Wiki page, a lot of interesting edits which make organization of SSG more clear. However it i believe Tarbela Brigade is also known as 22nd SS Brigade.

    3rd Commando Battalion
    "Powindahs"
    Based at Tarbela
    33rd SS Brigade

    Operation Qiadat, 1987- versus all odds

    Powindahs bravely charged in subzero conditions to eliminate IA posts in the Bilafond sector and gain a foothold on the Saltoro Ridge. Several enemy posts were eliminated but the assault stalled and was aborted following lack of reinforcements and casualties.

    This Operation earned 18 martyrs for us, including :

    Captain Iqbal Khan HJ
    Captain Salik Cheema SJ

    En lost 21 men.
