    Does anyone have any information about the ANCOP Strike Force? I'm assuming it is similar to a SWAT or counter-terrorism unit, but can't really find much about them.

    Sorry Arch not able to help on the Strike Force SSI. I have the one tab above it but have not seen the Strike Force patch before. It almost looks sewn to the Velcro too, interesting. Thanks Clete

    My guess is the machine stitching that originally attached the velcro to the back of the patch tore and the policeman made a crude hand stitched repair.

    I've seen some references to a "Mobile Strike Force vehicles" here : https://www.afghanistan-analysts.org/en/reports/war-and-peace/expanding-afghanistans-special-operations-forces-doubling-their-success-or-further-diluting-their-mission/

    Most of references I find are linked to a Mobile Strike Force, which seems to me a sort of armored force, like the "2nd Company, 4th Mobile Strike Force" (see : http://www.derechos.org/nizkor/iraq/doc/afgsigar.html)

    Another reference here : "Kate Clark described the Khost Protection Force as a ‘campaign force’ that was established after 2001 under international (CIA/US special forces) control. Similar militias include the Kandahar Strike Force and Paktika’s Afghan Security Guards." - see : https://easo.europa.eu/sites/default/files/publications/Afghanistan-security-situation-2019-web.pdf

    I also found : https://media-cdn.dvidshub.net/pubs/pdf_8595.pdf but that seems to be something else...
