MARINES are taking on sabotage raids and spying to help ease pressure on the SAS and SBS. It is part of an overhaul of the Marines into a Future Commando Force. The move saves top-trained troops for key missions, said Colonel Simon Rogers of the Navy's Special Ops Cell . He said: "Special Operations is not now just the preserve of special forces. "Commando forces are being developed, allowing us to save the highest end troops for the most demanding operations." Vice Admiral Jerry Kyd said more ships would be based further East for a shooting war if necessary. He said: "We're putting the vim back in the commandos to cause mayhem behind enemy lines. "We are building a Navy to be out on the block, out on the beat, in an era of persistent competition. "When deterrence fails we can go to a shooting war very quickly indeed."
