I'm no military expert at all but I think it's more or less the same, just another way to name it. Para commando is the description that was chosen in Belgium since the unit was a fusion of parachutist and commando troops.
Here's a Wikipedia entry:

Thank you so much! Now that I think of it, I remember a vid of Philippe in the military, running when he was training to be a para-commando and then they showed him in a parachute :)

Philippe and his bright colored pants I've seen him wearing yellow, red, orange, now purple

I know he should stray from gray suits every now and then but this is taking it to an extreme

I'm still mourning the loss of Philippe's beard but since he's lost weight, he's looking very good
