Wrong Title[edit]

As the JDF is the Jamaica Defence Force not the Jamaican Defence Force perhaps we should move this article to the correct title ? MilborneOne 19:19, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes. I have moved the article to 'Jamaica Defence Force'. Lordvaluemart 23:57, 05 November 2006 (UTC)

How Big?[edit]

How many men in the JDF? This article should say. 80.178.87.27 20:09, 30 January 200of Jamaica does not publish this information. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Edison9114 (talkcontribs) 03:35, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Combat aircraft[edit]

Are there any fighter/bomber jets in the JDF? It seems odd that a country like Jamaica would not have a form of fighter, bomber, or fighter/bomber aircraft. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.205.70.254 (talk) 09:02, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

No, and to my knowledge they never have. THey don't operate any jet aircraft of any kind, though there are turbine-powered aircraft (turboprops and helicopters) in service. As to why not, I can guess several related reasons, but I really don't know. - BillCJ (talk) 09:14, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Special Forces[edit]

Does the JDF as a Special Forces Unit? OR capable —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.207.114.20 (talk) 02:21, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

According to [1] the CTOG was trained by Canadians. According to [2] they were advised during the CanJet 918 hijacking by the FBI 76.66.196.218 (talk) 16:01, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Ferret scout vehicle?[edit]

I found some references pointing to the fact that the Jamaican military uses the Ferret. However most sources don't mention this. Therefore I didn't add it to the equipment table. Could anyone confirm this? (Wilhelm Klave (talk) 13:42, 3 September 2009

They stop using them Many years ago (UTC))

Edit request from LilyRichman, 8 September 2011[edit]

{{edit semi-protected}} I have noticed that the Commander-in-Chief of the Jamaican Defence Force has been left out and I wanted to suggest that it be added within the Leadership. The present Commander-in-Chief of the Jamaican Defence Force is Queen Elizabeth II with Governor-General Patrick Allen as her representative.

Jamaica's CTOG[edit]

Is there any pics, and number in size of the Units? and the name of the Group other than CTOG  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.167.151.244 (talk) 18:36, 22 October 2011 (UTC) 

JDF[edit]
