There are no CSAR units per se in the Legion, although you may have a situation where Legion elements are called in as support troop in a CSAR mission (Iâ€™m thinking in particular, but not only, of GCP of 2[sup]e[/sup] REP).I have a question. I used the search button but still unclear: what's the job that is closest to CSAR? I was checking out the 1st Foreign Engineer Regiment's units and saw a job titled â€œSpecialized Operational Search Group (Fouille OpÃ©rationnelle SpÃ©cialisÃ©e). Is this having to do with labouring or is the general "paramedic" job the closest you can get to something like CSAR?
â€œFouille opÃ©rationnelle spÃ©cialisÃ©eâ€ (Military Search) has nothing to do with CSAR. The objective is to have military units trained in forensic techniques to collect elements available on the ground that will provide intelligence on the enemy, a bit like some specialised police officers who investigate crime scenes.
