I've never seen PEN in my time deployed or stateside used as an acronym. Maybe it's different in other countries, but PCN is what is used.

Any update on my last post about "RAID"?

*Edit: My apologies.

I was looking through some sale ads and there was an original LF'er tag on a RAID pack with:

Reconnaissance
Assault
Interdict
Destroy

Here are the correct english names for the Norwegian SF communities;
NORASOC - FSK/HJK, Army SOF.
NORNAVSOC - MJK, Naval SOF.

A lot of people use NORSOF; Here is something Kjetil Mellingen wrote about the case in his Master from Naval Postgraduate School at Monterey, California:
Quote:
NORSOF is not a formal term or organization, but an acronym that describes the two
special operations communities in Norway, consisting of the Army SOF and the Naval SOF. The
137 Air Wing is considered a part of the NORSOF community, as the unit is responsible for the
development and employment of special air operations support from the Air Force. In governing
documents, 137 Air Wing is not regarded as SOF, but it is tasked with support missions.
