Despite your location being stated as "Unknown," it's obvious where your loyalties lie: if you want to start an argument for the Norwegian special forces, start by listing their training, the missions they have accomplished, etc. to demonstrate that they are an all-around superior force.Vlad said:Special force should be able to do everything. Like FSK, and yes it is plenty of good special force! But who is best overall? The US special force are no good in Norway! FSK are kick theirs ass every time. The SAS are extremely good to!
You sound like the conventional military. The people in Special Operations are screened both mentally and physically for the task in their area. While the occasional person does slip through the cracks, it is rare and they don't last long. On the other hand in the standard military many people are not suited for the task at hand. I don't mean to look down on anyone that serves their country, or attempts to. I admire them for that. But in all honesty there are lots of people in the military that are not top performers. That is why everything in the military is simplified to the best they can. In special ops, those people are held to a higher standard.Yimmy said:I really don't see what the big fuss is with "special forces", at the end of the day they are only human like the est of us. The only thing which really makes them special is that they get to play with all the gucci toys, get more training opportunities and get a large amount of funding for their size.
Not that I am saying their selection courses are not hard as Hell, but I would rather be part of a platoon or troop than operate with perhaps 3 other people any day.

Norway's special forces all theirs mission is secret.Muzzleblast said:Please take no offence to this as I mean it only as an honest question.
When has Norway's special forces last seen battle?
Actually BC Delta is NOT the same as SF. While the name 1st SFODA was ment to give that impression it is not the same unit. SF go to a 3 phase Q course and have a diffrent structure than Delta. Delta was patterned off of the British SAS and has the same unit structure. Selection is completly diffrent than SF and they train in the unit after selection. They tried to use SF as a CT force in the late 70's and early 80's but it did not work out. The unit was called Blue Light and was within the SF command etc. Both units have some cross over missions, but are diffrent units.Ballistic_Coefficiency said:Skipping all the posts... i will say one thing. You left out about 25 to 30 units. And "Green Beret" and "Delta" are the same thing... Delta is simply the Army's anti terrorism unit in the SF group's.
To summerize the answer.... there is not a single "best" unit. Every unit has there specialties... one of them can not do the job of another as good as the other.
