Taiwan’s special forces will be featured in a three-episode program produced by
Discovery Channel that will have its Taiwan premiere next week, the channel said Friday.
The program will feature stories about the rigorous training that soldiers in the ROC Navy’s special service company and the Army’s paratroopers have to undergo, Discovery Channel said in a statement. The program will be aired in Taiwan every Monday, with the first episode broadcast Oct. 26, it said. The program will also be broadcast in other countries in Asia starting from November, it added.
The production team spent eight months following the training regimens of the two military units, the statement said.
Viewers will get a glimpse of the Navy special service company’s training, including unarmed combat, fieldcraft, long-range shooting, rappelling and other skills, the channel said. Also featured in the program is the unit’s counter-terrorism training at sea. [FULL STORY]
