Royal Marines of 45 Commando carry out mountain training in Scotland ahead of their Arctic deployment next year. At the heart of this is Future Commando Force. This bold modernisation is a restructuring that will overhaul how the world-famous green berets operate. It is about returning commando forces to their roots as raiders from the sea at the spearhead of operations around the world, including all extremes of environment like desert, jungle and Arctic. This mountain training saw the marines test Future Commando Force tactics and techniques, including working in small teams on mountain raids.
