    I have come across this on the internet on a variety of forums but have no idea what it is?, seems possibly something to with covert operations/branch as a few posts regarding language skills have popped up.

    Can any light be shed?,

    After a bit of digging, it all seems to be hush hush.

    An *text deleted* thread made was blocked so I imagine the information ain't open to the public. On that forum they would discuss practically everything - but not that - which says something to me, anyway.

    As you say anyway; covert!

    Not the whole truth but maybe a brief description of what it is or they are, I have a knack for finding info about anything on the web but this is another level of digging.

    Someone may PM you, it won't be me before you ask, there really is no reason for you to know, you may even end up disappointed when you do find out! ;)

    the information is surprisingly easy to find via google, it took me approximately 3 minutes. there is an official publication that specifically names it

    mods: is dissemination of this sort of thing allowed if it appears on a cursory google search? threads on arrse get pulled after one post about it, and it is hush hush stuff apparently, but the information IS there

    I just wanted some clarification of it that's all, after I looked again I found the official pdf only stating a few entry requirements for it. It actually looks quite interesting if I'm thinking what it is but still not 100% sure only that it's HUMINT.

    To be honest, I'd be surprised if there isn't something in the public domain about it but what is out there and what is categoric truth may well be poles apart. Bear in mind anything that borders on opsec will also be spoofed.

    Rest assured any links will be removed because we always err on caution whether it is complete bull or 100% accurate. If you need to know, you'll know. Fact is there's always some clown that thinks they know about something restricted & seeks to impress everyone by gobbing off about it, possibly even endangering others in their quest for "respeck".
