Find Another UnitBrief Description

Atlas Commando - (1 members)

The Atlas Commando was formed to assign males of military service age to meet their commitments at the Atlas Aircraft Corporation, a facility considered important to their Air Force's equipment requirements. During the SADF, the unit was mainly engaged in area force protection, search and cordons as well as other assistance to the local police. As an urban unit, this commando was also tasked with protecting strategic facilities as well as quelling township riots especially during the State of Emergency in the 1980s. This unit, along with all other Commando units, were disbanded between 2003 and 2008 after a decision was made by South African President Thabo Mbeki to disband all Commando Units.
