The Army Ranger Wing (ARW) of Ireland is one of the most elite special forces units in Europe, and the world. They have been in existence since the 1960s, and officially since 1980. They conducted sanctioned missions and "black ops" on every continent, plus peacekeeping duties in Somalia, East Timor, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Cyprus, Lebanon, Western Sahara, Liberia, and Chad, among others, losing just 3 personnel. With an operational strength of 200 men, these are the cream of the crop from the Irish Army. A fighting force that is trained to kill with their bare hands, they train alongside US Army Rangers (75th regiment), Delta Force and the SAS, plus many more. They are among the best equipped EU special forces, and are currently tackling pirates in the Gulf of Aden/Indian Ocean, Somalia, close protection duties for the United Nations mission in Lebanon, security and intel. gathering on the Syrian border with Israel (Golan Heights) and training other special forces ...more

36 Sri Lankan Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol

This is the only one special force that won a war during last few decades by defeating the most ruthless terrorist organization "LTTE". This top-secret group went on to play a huge role, operating deep behind enemy lines, gathering intelligence and eliminating key targets. Until now, no one has ever filmed this elite unit, and until the end of the war, the government kept their very existence under wraps

I am a sri lankan, I know for real these guys are bad ass

It's so sad nobody listed Sri Lankan special forces in top 10 list.. SL special forces doomed LTTTE terrorist group..

37 CIA (S.A.D.) 'Special Activities Division'

The chosen few; best of the best.
The United State's ultimate Special-Op is highly secretive, and it recruits from JSOC-(DevGru, Delta-Force, Force Recon... Etc. Even Grey Fox) With more elite/less combatants than JTK2! These guys do everything:

• Sabotage
• Kidnappings
• Reconnaissance
• Hostage Rescue
• Counter Terrorism
• Bomb Damage Assessment
• Personnel and Material Recovery

-Often deploying as many as Six to One operatives.

Interesting Fact: "Since CIA SAD's existence, it has been the first unit into every warzone, from Iraq to Afghanistan, gathering intel."
