@Essal:

What are the correct meanings of NORASOC and NORNAVSOC then? Norwegian Army Special Operations Command and Norwegian Navy Special Operations Command? Just asking as I'm gonna try to get the list of acronyms updated and corrected.

@Simpen:

I believe the correct terms are:

NORASOC: Norwegian Army Special Operations Command (FSK/HJK)
NORNAVSOC: Norwegian Navy Special Operations Command (MJK)

As far as NORSOF goes, it is a perfectly acceptable common denominator for the community, even though it is not an official term.

I think most acronyms are good to go, we can sort them up and split it later on in the event that the list gets to long :)

Added:
NORASOC: Norwegian Army Special Operations Command (FSK/HJK)
NORNAVSOC: Norwegian Navy Special Operations Command (MJK)

TACP - A Tactical Air Control Party, is usually a team of two or more United States Air Force Tactical Air Controllers. They sometimes include an Air Liaison Officer, which is assigned to a U.S. Army combat maneuver unit. TACPs advise ground commanders on the best use of air power. They also establish and maintain command and control communications, control air traffic and naval gunfire and provide precision terminal attack guidance of U.S. and coalition close air support .

TACP members are assigned to all conventional Army combat units and to various other units such as Special Forces, Navy SEALs and the Army Rangers.

In addition, TACP members can be assigned to AFSOC Special Tactics Squadrons.

TACP is correct as an acronym but it refers to just one person. That is their job title.
