Grenzschutzgruppe 9 der Bundespolizei (Border Protection Group 9 of the Federal Police), commonly abbreviated GSG 9, is a German counter-terrorism and special operations unit. It was created as a result of the Munich Massacre where Germany's law enforcement found itself severely compromised due to their failure to rescue the hostages and stop the terrorists as well as the country's historic relationship to Jews and Israel.

The GSG 9 is an available organization in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.

CTU History

The unit was officially established on April 17, 1973, following the Munich Massacre in 1972. GSG 9 was formed to combat the growing threat of terrorism. Due to the German Constitution's express forbidding the use of the military forces against the civilian population, the unit draws from, and is, a police force. GSG 9 specializes in mitigating crisis situations, such as hostage taking, kidnapping, terrorism, and extortion.
