Do you even know what this thread is about?

Of course. I explained what the Austrian SWAT team is after you denied they had one with no prompting at all. That after going of at a tangent to Australia at first instead of staying on topic of a man dying of a heart attack due to having a SWAT team called to his house by teenagers that wanted his Twitter handle.

It is you that has gone on a merry dance, not I. I only entertained your little dance.

Who said anything about Austrian SWAT team?

Allow me to help you. The Austrian Einsatzkommando (EKO) Cobra is the Austrian Police Tactical Unit. Just because you have never heard of them or it happening, it doesn't mean it didn't:

EKO Cobra was involved in a hostage rescue in the Graz-Karlau Prison in 1996, and numerous other operations. Although it has never participated in the same type of hostage rescue operations that the HRT, GIGN, GIS, NSG, ERU, GSG 9, and the SAS have had, the EKO Cobra is the only Counter-Terrorism unit to end a hijacking while the aircraft was still in the air. On 17 October 1996, four Cobra officers were on board an Aeroflot Tupolev Tu-154 escorting deported prisoners to Lagos when a Nigerian man threatened the cockpit crew with a knife and demanded a diversion to Germany or South Africa. The team overpowered the man and handed him over to authorities after landing.

In the course of the 2006 Lebanon War EKO Cobra assisted in the evacuation of Austrians and other EU citizens from Lebanon.

135 EKO Cobra operatives together with units of the Austrian Armed Forces were involved in the search for Alois Huber in the Annaberg shooting, who killed three police officers and one Red Cross EMT on 17 September 2013, in Lower Austria.

In 2016, 42 officers supported the German Police in the Munich shooting.

In 2017, 20 EKO Cobra operatives were directly involved to end the severe riots in the Schanzenviertel area during the G20 Hamburg summit, three operatives were wounded.

EKO Cobra also is assisting in the manhunt of the remaining suspect who was involved in the
2020 Vienna attack

A bit more reading will show plenty of SWAT type action in Austria.

einsatzkommando ........ historically VERY unfortunate name. not gruppen for sure but still evokes ugly mental images.

Times when you wish you could change your language.

German language speakers are pragmatic. The Reichstag (Parliament) in Berlin remains the Reichstag.

I'm not sure that it's pragmatism. There are simply so many they have no choice other than to switch to french. And i cant see that happening anytime soon. :ROFL:

You did. Convo starting at post #13:


Austria perhaps? :)

Australia - English speaking place with Kangaroos and Koala Bears in the Southern Hemisphere. Birthplace of Steve Irwin.

Austria - German speaking place with classical music orchestras and ski lifts in the Northern Hemisphere. Birthplace of Adolf Hitler.

Your point is?

Geography lesson.

Or you have no idea why I mentioned Austria. I bet you didn't even open the link. Let me help you.

"This will never happen in Australia" - MyBB poster

Then I posted a link about a swatting incident in Australia. I then asked if he meant Austria as I couldn't find any such incident there.
