ll Incursion Operational Group (GOI) is one of the two branches of COMSUBIN, Submarine Command and Raiders, and constitutes the Special Forces component of the Navy.
The tasks are:
- attack on naval and merchant units in port or at anchor with the use of various contact and standoff weapon systems;
- attacks on port/coastal installations and civil and military infrastructures within the 40 km range from the coast;
- naval counter-terrorism operations for the release of hostages on passenger or merchant ships and on maritime installations;
- infiltration and stay in hostile territory for informative and / or naval fire support missions.
To deepen - authoritatively - the weapons supplied to the department, we returned to the ancient fortress of Varignano.
The head of the GOI armory welcomed us with availability, courtesy and (proverbial) patience.
