South Korea formed a new elite unit of marines dubbed Spartan 3000 for raids inside North Korea

The Marine Corps has formed a new mobile unit tasked with attacking North Korea from the rear in the event of a contingency, a military official said Sunday. The regimental-level unit of 3,000 troops was launched in the southeastern coastal city of Pohang on March 1, dubbed "Spartan 3000," the official said.
The new unit's wartime operational skills were tested during a set of joint military exercises between South Korea and the United States that ended last Friday. (Photo: Yonhapnews)
