Top 10 Most Dangerous Warriors/Armies of All Time

This is a top 10 list of the most skilled and impressive military forces. No force was admitted if it's not acknowledged by the government. The selected force has to have a verity of skill sets and knowledge. This is the reason for the Green Berets, British SAS, and Delta Force not being admitted to the list, for the Green Berets and British SAS are focused on anti-terrorism and unconventional warfare. Delta Force isn't acknowledged by the U.S. Government.

The Top Ten

1 The Spartans

These soldiers should be number 1. They were simply bred to fight and die and would take apart the three groups above them if they were still around.

Legendary warriors. Lived to train and fight. Ancient elite special forces.

Should be higher then the roman legionnaires

Trained since seven held up a army of persians numbering in the hundred os thousands... is there anything else to say?

2 The Roman Legionaries

The Roman Legionaries were the basic unit the Roman Army used. The Romans basically ran the world for hundreds of years. These troops were heavily disciplined and used the unique tortoise formation quite often. The Roman Legionaries are amongst the best fighters in history.

Probably the top three you don't want to mess with are the Romans, the Mongols, and the Spartans. Israelis and the modern Chinese come in close to those. - JustAnAccount

They coudnt defeat Basque people.

3 Israeli Commando (Sayeret Matkal)

Nothing but terrorists.

They get the job done

They win

These modern day soldiers are among the best fighters in the world. They have developed their own martial art called Krav Maga and are skilled shooters.

4 Mongol Empire Army

How are so many others on this list with out ghengis khan army who pillaged and sacked all of Asia and Eurasia

5 The Vikings

Vikings are the best and strongest because they are healthy, tall, strong.
One is enough to kill a big grizzly bear.

AR! Wait, no, that's not right... - JustAnAccount

6 Russian Spetsnaz

Just awesome. Wait, where are the green berets on here?

7 Templar Knights and Crusaders

The Crusaders controlled parts of the Middle East, Israel, Europe, The Holy Roman Empire, and The Byzantine Empire. The Templar Knights were elite knights. It is said they feared neither man nor demon.

I think it is hard to do in the forced or anywhere else... I would not do that at all


8 German Empire Army

They were trained to defend germany

9 U.S. Navy Seal

Up to the current year of 2018, The U.S. Navy SEAL is the most elite fighting force this world has ever seen. But to date, other armies and soldiers may be in a proper spot. But the U.S. Navy SEAL is the deadliest warrior and soldier the world has ever seen.

The Navy Seals are definitely the most impressive military force to date. They go through intense training and preform elite missions. The Navy Seals have taken out terrorist leaders and other essential targets. The Navy Seals are truly deserving of the #1 rank on this list.

You think 10 roman legionaries would beat 10 Navy Seals? Literally the Navy seals could just shoot them. Its asking for the greatest ever, not the greatest of its time.

This is definitely higher on the list. Like number 3 or 4. They’re seals.

35 Ancient Turko-Mongolian Steppe Warriors

For thounsands of years ancient Turkic-Mongolian armies had many victories against their enemies. Especially their main enemy; China.
