Jagdkommando is the Austrian Military’s Special Operations group, and according to this video, they are extremely proficient in conducting counter terrorism operations both domestically and abroad.

The elite Jagdkommando, which literally translates to “hunt command,” has seen action in the Balkans, Afghanistan, and eastern Chad. The troops can fill a number of roles including airborne/air assault operations, reconnaissance, asymmetrical warfare, hostage rescue, and obviously counter-terror operations. Austria considers militarily trained terrorists as military targets, so these troops would have no problems conducting operations within their own borders if the circumstances necessitated such a deployment.
