Welcome to the Badges and Wings section.
This section contains badges, wings, etc of the Danish Armed Forces.
The Proficiency badges are based on practical and theoretical tests and exams, that are used to judge the level of basic skills of a Danish soldier within specific areas.
The soldier may take a test where points are deducted for mistakes.
When having completed the test points are calculated and one of five results are given based on the number of points: Failed, passed, passed+bronze, passed+silver and passed+gold.

Officially there are only two parawings in Denmark, the normal parawing awarded after 3 parajumps, and the freefall wings awarded by the Special Forces Command.
All officers and SOF are given parachutetraining - It's VERY rare for non-officers and non-SOF to be awarded a course and the subsequent parawing.
