It's impossible to determine who's the best. They are all approximately equally good. And most of them train together too. At least I know SAS, FSK and GSG-9 do.

I'd have to say the 22nd Special Air Service because they have so much experience and are probably one of the first to take room clearing seriously since the Battle of Berlin in '45.

Being an American the US Navy SEALs are tops in my books xD

well,... i miss one Team
The EKO Cobra. The Austrian Special Forces. To this time these are the only guys that successfully ended an aircraft hijacking while in mid air.
click here for more information
And as Leon already said, most of them are equally well trained, so this is mostly a sympathy poll Wink

Well if the world had a group of SF made up of the worlds best soldiers from the special forces. Backed up with every secret toy in every countries lockers and a world wide inteligence network. Plus sactioned to operate any where without waiting a month for UN approval.

Then a group like the fictional Rainbow on steriods would be the #1 SF Group on earth lol.

Just think. If even just the US, UK, Germany, France, and Russia joined forces like that. With total trust and cooperation (never will happen) It would indeed be a very bad day to be a terrorist. Because the second you leave yoru cave some one will smell it and step on you as hard and as fast as a Jet flies.

I think SAS could be called the best because:

They specialise both in military operations as well as counter-terrorism in the homeland.
They're the mother of CQB.
They have a lot of tradition and experience because they're so old.

Once watched a coverage about a challenge to find out the best special force on earth. I think most of the named special forces participated, though the SAS as it officially is non-existing wasn't there. GSG-9 was the favourite after the first half .... unfortunately I missed the end ...

well as already stated that's more or less a thing of preferences as non of us has enough intel information to really compare this units ...

There are two in Germany, the KSK and the GSG9.
I believe the difference is in their tasks.
GSG stands for "GrenzSchutzGruppe" which is roughly "BorderSafetyGroup"...
maybe Duke knows more about them Smile

The difference is: The GSG9 doesn't operate in war zones.

hey duke

Hey Duke it's right that the KSK does operate in war zones, but they are also a great special Unit, because they have the same tactics. But there are also the SEK (Sondereinsatzkommando) in each state. The GSG9 is just called if the SEK teams say they have no the equip for this situation.
I have a big map with all special untis in the world, and i must say that the most units comes from America. but a lot of Units also comes from Israel.
Have a nice day.

P.S.: Duke i hope i see you again any time.!? Blum 3

Looking at the poll results and the leaders, 22nd SAS and FSK. I guess you can say we are a bit partial lol.

Members from the UK and Noreway aside. Do recall that our founder was a member of the FSK Team in SWAT3 before we were born Wink

BTW the poll left out the bad to the bone Dutch BBE which I believe was also a very fine Coop team in SWAT3 Wink

Well people im loving all of the posts that you have entered in this poll that was taken on by myself.

Interesting how this has brought out the little soldier in all of us lol.....It is true that there is no best special forces group.

Different Countries have different standards when using special forces most use them in the classic role of special operations and assisting regulars in operations. While some are used in a civil capacity like how the SAS was used in Northern Ireland. Which is the beauty of UKSF. But that is just my opinion. Each Unit mentioned in this poll is the best soldiers of their nation and a great tribute to all soldiers and armed forces personel in all Hot zones around the world.

Support your Troopers !!!
