My Vote Goes to the Bad Boys of the 22nd regiment special air service.
These are serious with what they do and how they do, their selection process is the toughest in the world , thats why when other sf troopers come over
here on secondment they have to pass selection 1st then they are allowed to play with our boys.
The SAS have been at the covert op games since WW2, and have spawned many copies, Aussie and NZ SAS are just an extenison of the Bristish one.
The US Seals are a bunch a serious mo fo as well but i know who i would rather come and resuce me if i was in the wrong palce at the wrong time.
The SAS have a proven track record in some of the worst places in the world. Look at the 1st iraq war, while US seal and Delta were running round
southern iraq in their shade and dune buggies, the brits were tasked with taking out the scuds in northern iraq, and after a patrol got into
trouble,(bad Intel from our friends in the CIA) end up ontop of a gun emplacment , they bugged out in a fire fight, some died, two were captured and
tortoured by saddam(read Barvo two Zero by andy Mcnabb , patrol commander awarded the DCM) one walk to the sryina border,(read the one that got away
by chris ryan) the longest ecaspe and evasion in the regiments history.
Afganistan, a patrol comes across a cave full of taliban, drop their kit and sneak in for a look, sneak out and call in a airstrike. also when a CIA
opertive is stuck in a prison and the imates decide to riot, who gets him out and reclaims the prison!!
