60 women carry out selection for Norway's only special forces unit for women, but only a handful are able to pass the grueling course.
Elite soldiers from 'Forsvarets spesialkommando' or the Defense special commandos, train the all-female troop to survive, handle deadly weapons, train to kill, and complete their parachutist course in order to become a 'Jeger,' a special forces soldier.
To become special forces elite soldiers they must meet requirements and demands that are absolute and must be met.
They only complete the course after being beaten, almost drowned, and basically prepared for anything. The women are learned how to fight out of situations they risk meeting when sent on missions abroad, most likely to Afghanistan or Iraq, where Norway at the moment has military presence.
Those who make it all the way through the course are given the prestigious Jeger (hunter) insignia, proving that they are the best of the best of the best Norway has to offer when it comes to Nordic female killing machines, or modern times shieldmaidens.*
Watch Norwegian women turn into badasses (PS! Strange English auto generated subtitles):
*A shieldmaiden in Scandinavian folklore and mythology was a woman who had chosen to fight as a warrior alongside men. They are often mentioned in sagas such as Hervarar saga ok Heiðreks and in Gesta Danorum.
