The unit was created on 13 February 1982. It is composed of approximately fifty people, selected after a rigorous selection procedure at the Special Training Centre (established on 6 August 1980), where they also receive intensive training. Their equipment is among the most modern and sophisticated in the Spanish Army , including Ruger 44 rifles, Uzi and Heckler und Koch submachine guns, and Winchester sniper rifles with telescopic sights. On operations they wear black uniforms. Otherwise, for security reasons, they wear nothing that identifies them as UEI members.
