French Commando Parachute Group

The Commando Parachute Group (French: Groupement des Commandos Parachutistes, GCP) is a special forces unit in the 11th Parachute Brigade of the French Army that is within the second "circle" of authority of the Commandement des Opérations Spéciales.

The GCP was founded in 1965 as Commandos de recherche et d'action en profondeur (CRAP, "Deep Action and Recon Commando"), and renamed in 1999 after lieutenant-colonel Pascal Chapoulaud befriended a US officer who brought the English term to his attention.
