With its origins in the Directorate Special Action Forces—Army created and, later, Headquarters Special Forces, in 2003 the Australian Government directed the establishment of a Special Operations Command. The new Special Operations Command would be equal in status to Maritime, Land and Air Commands, in order to enhance Australia’s ability to use non-conventional war fighting means to respond to the asymmetric threat of terrorism.
