    Amphibious and deep ground surveillance.
    Assisting in specialized technical missions such as Nuclear, Biological, Chemical, Radio, sensors and beacons, etc.
    Assisting in ordnance delivery (i.e., designating targets for close air support, artillery and naval gunfire.
    Conducting direct action raids, such as gas and oil platform (GOPLATS) raids and the capture of specific personnel or sensitive materials.
    Counter Insurgency Operations
    Behind Enemy Lines Assault
    Deep Reconnaissance
    Hostage prisoner of war rescue.
    Unconventional warfare
    Foreign Internal Defense
