Malaysia Legendary Spec Ops- Vat 69 -Sketch by Rumilax Malaysia Legendary Spec Ops- Vat 69 -Sketch by Rumilax
The title say...As it is National Day where my country it got independence from Great Britain through troublesome democracy and insurgent....I present to you Malaysia legendary Special Ops during 1969- now (now know as PGK)

I heard from my police uncle that VAT 69 was so excellent that Commie insurgent fear the very name of the unit
here a wiki:

VAT 69

VAT 69 (Very Able Troopers 69), also known as Task Force, Charlie Force and Special Project Team, is modelled on the British Special Air Service Regiment. It was formed in 1969 (hence the name – 69) as a small combat unit to counter the tactics and techniques of the communist terrorists. It began when the Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security, The Honorable Allahyarham (late) Tun Dr. Ismail proposed the formation of a special force for fighting the communist insurgency in 1969.
In October 1969, 60 men from 1600 officers and men of the Jungle Squad applied for VAT 69 training and qualified themselves for basic commando training. A group of instructors from British Special Air Service Regiment were sent to Fort Kemar, Perak to supervised the inaugural 69th Commando. Only 30 men managed to pass and they formed the nucleus troop of 69th Commando Battalion.
In the 1970s, VAT 69 started its initial operations and successfully deployed against the communist threat. As a result, a significant number of communist terrorists were neutralised and large amounts of weapons and equipment were seized.
In 1977, three new squadrons were raised and trained by the New Zealand SAS and a special course was also conducted to train their own instructors. This expansion programme was completed in 1980 and VAT 69 had fully equipped units with its own logistics department.

PS.Just drawing myself as the VAT 69
