— Parabat's motto

1 Parachute Battalion, nicknamed Parabat, is the only full-time paratroop unit of the South African Army. It was established on 1 April 1961 with the formation of the Parachute Battalion.

In 1960, volunteers taken from the South African Airforce (SAA) send to RAF Abingdon to train as parachute instructors. These volunteers, along with 2 Mobile Watch formed the nucleus of 1 Parachute Battalion at Tempe in Bloemfontein in April 1961. The first paratroopers were volunteers taken from the Permanent Force, but they would later take from the Citizen Force aswell.

1 Parachute Battalion first saw action in 1966 where they participated, with the South African Police, against insurgents in South West Africa. Afterwards, they participated in minor operations in Namibia, Angola, Zambia, Mozambique and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). The unit's most notable operation was in the South African Border War, where they relieved a group of San fighters from SWAPO forces.

Today, the unit primarily focuses on peacekeeping operations in Africa.

Expert's Opinion[]

This was a very close battle. While the Russian Airborne Troops had slightly better training, this was only a tiny edge, allowing the Parabats' more accurate weapons to rake in a win.
