  • seal Team six and Delta Force or two of the world's most elite counter terrorism Special Forces units.

  • They're highly trained operators undertake the most risky and dangerous missions for the U.

  • S.

  • Military.

  • And even though they operate under absolute secrecy, we do know that these units have been responsible for some of the highest profile successful counterterrorism missions in recent decades.

  • From the dramatic sea rescue of a hijacked ship and crew to the takedown of America's number one enemy, Osama bin Laden way.

  • No.

  • Both units are the best of the best.

  • But if it came down to US Navy SEAL Team six versus Delta Force, who would win the first official Special Forces units reformed in the U.

  • S.

  • In the 19 fifties?

  • Although there's ample evidence of unofficial special operations throughout history, including World War Two and even as far back as the Revolutionary War, the Navy seals could trace their roots back to World War two's naval combat and underwater demolition teams.

  • Thes special units were disbanded after the war but resurrected during the 19 fifties and sixties during the Korean and Vietnam wars, when Seal Team six, officially known as the United States, Naval Special Warfare Development Group, or death guru, was formed in 1980.

  • It was one of only two Navy SEAL teams in operation at the time.

  • The use of the number six in the units name was a ploy to trick the Soviets into thinking that the US had MAWR Active Special Forces units than they really have Delta Force or the first Special Forces operational detachment.

  • Delta was formed in the late 19 seventies in response toe worldwide, political unrest and a rise in international terrorism.

  • It was inspired by the British Special Air Service, or S A S in the 1977 proposal painted a picture of an elite force that could respond to highly sensitive situations, including international acts of terrorism.

  • Officially, Delta Force and Seal Team six don't even exist, making it hard to get accurate information about their operations and members.

  • Best estimates place the total number of Delta Force operators at around 1000, and there are an estimated 300 active seal team six operators.

  • Unofficially, these two units carry out some of the U.

  • S.

  • Military's most dangerous and risky missions.

  • With so many similarities between the two units and the wall of secrecy that surrounds their operations.

  • It's no wonder that people often find it hard to keep them straight.

  • Both SEAL Team six and Delta Force our special missions units are sm used under the control of the secretive Joint Special Operations Command, or Jae Sok.

  • Both are Tier one units, closed teams that are staffed by invitation only.

  • There are only four tier one units in the U.

  • S.

  • In total seal Team six Delta Force, the Air Force's 24th Special Tactical Squadron and the CIA's Intelligence Support Activity team.

  • The tier one units are the most elite and selective special operations units, and their operators are the best of the best.

  • Both SEAL Team six and Delta Force undertake similar clandestine missions, primarily counterterrorism operations, but they're also trained in close quarters combat, hostage rescue and espionage.

  • But despite their many similarities, the units differ quite a bit in terms of selection and training, operations and culture.

  • If Seal Team six and Delta Force were ever to go head to head how these two ultra elite units fare against one another, let's find out by taking a closer look at two of the U.

  • S.

  • is most secretive and elite special missions units.

  • One of the main differences between SEAL Team six and Delta Force is the way that the units select and vet their candidates.

  • Delta Force candidates largely come from the U.

  • S Army.

  • Most come from the 75th Ranger Regiment or the Special Forces.

  • But they've also been known to accept candidates from other military branches, including the Coast Guard, the National Guard and even the Navy Seals seal.

  • Team six, on the other hand, selects candidates exclusively from within existing seal team units.

  • This gives Seal Team 60 advantage of having a common culture among recruits who all came from a Navy SEAL background.

  • The operators often already know each other from previous missions or training.

  • Once candidates have been selected, the process of qualifying and training a seal Team six operator is quite different from the path that a new Delta Force recruit will follow.

  • Delta Force hold selection courses twice a year at a secret location somewhere deep in the Appalachian Mountains, where more than 100 candidates attend the grueling course.

  • Candidates come from diverse military backgrounds but are all battle hardened, seasoned soldiers and still the failure rate is over 90%.

  • The selection course is exactly as tough and demanding as you would expect.

  • A course with such a high failure rate to be candidates undergo a grueling test of their physical fitness, stamina and mental determination.

  • Candidates must complete a series of navigation tests where they must navigate a foreign landscape with nothing but an old fashioned map and compass.

  • There also subjected to physical endurance tests like a time 18 mile ruck march, a nighttime hike carrying a fully loaded £35 pack and a time to 40 mile mission carrying a £45 pack over steep, rough terrain.

  • The lucky 10% who managed to survive this grueling test of the selection course are then subjected to a barrage of psychological evaluations and the commanders review before officially being accepted into the unit.

  • Even once they're accepted, though, they're not.

  • In the clear, new recruits must attend a six month operator, training course ROTC, where another 30 to 40% of the candidates failed to make the final cut seal.

  • Team six has a two part selection process, the review and the Green Team.

  • After a Navy seal submits an application.

  • His pictures posted on the wall at the unit's headquarters in the Navy's damn Neck Annex Current Seal team.

  • Six members who may have worked with the candidate in the past then marked the candidates photo with a check mark if they should be accepted into the elite unit or with a minus sign if they don't think they'd make the cut.

  • Once a candidate has passed this daunting review, they've earned the right to attend a Green Team a six month long training in selection course similar to Delta's OTC, where they face a 50% failure rate.

  • The remaining graduates are then drafted for the rare few that make it through the selection process and are admitted to the elite ranks of Seal Team six or Delta Force.

  • They're further training will look remarkably similar.

  • Both units air highly trained in counter terrorism, close quarters, combat, hostage rescue, high value target extraction, espionage, explosives and marksmanship.

  • Thanks to their Naval Heritage Seal team, six operators receive additional training and specialized maritime and underwater operations.

  • This gives him an advantage at sea, but Delta Force has an edge in ground combat in cases where a mission devolves into a large unit action.

  • Delta Force operators can rely on their greater ground combat experience to switch into infantry mode.

  • Seal Team six operators may lack a much experience in large unit infantry tactics as Delta Force, given their highly specialized training in small unit tactics.

  • Both units receive similar training because they undertake similar missions and objectives.

  • Because of the clandestine nature of these elite units, we know very little about their actual operations.

  • Though that's changing in recent years, increased media scrutiny and coverage of the elite teams operations is driving a strong public interest in these secretive special forces.

  • Hollywood, always quick to capitalize on the trend, has further raised the profile of these under the radar units with a string of blockbuster hits.

  • Black Hawk Down was a dramatic retelling of the 1993 capture of Somali strongman Mohammed Farah Adid by Delta Force operatives.

  • Zero Dark, 30 received five Academy Award nominations for his portrayal of the Seal Team six rate of a compound in Pakistan that resulted in the death of Al Qaeda leader in 9 11 architect Osama bin Laden, a 2013 film captain.

  • Phillips told the amazing true story of captain Richard Phillips, played by Tom Hanks, who was rescued by SEAL Team six operatives after he was hijacked and kidnapped by Somali pirates in 2009.

  • Because of their overlapping mandates and skill sets, there is certainly some rivalry between Seal Team Six and Delta Force Seal Team Six have been called out by Delta Force recording the spotlight after the takedown of bin Laden.

  • Though this criticism might stem from the fact that Delta Force felt that they should have been the ones to lead that important mission, it was insinuated that the Seals on Lee got to take the lead because Navy admirals were high in command positions in the J Sock and Special Operations Command at the time.

  • While there may be tension between the groups from time to time, both SEAL Team six and Delta Force are on the same side in the war on terror and in reality, they often work together on counterterrorism missions, albeit unofficially.

  • As you'd expect, these elite teams have access to state of the art weapons and technologies to help them complete their dangerous missions.

  • The HK 4 16 carbon is thought to be the assault rifle favored by Delta Force operators, though they also have their pick of other high powered assault rifles, like the colt M four, a one or the M 16.

  • Delta Force also uses the MP 59 millimeter submachine gun, Colt 45 Pistols and Beretta and Glock nine millimeter pistols.

  • In addition to the impressive array of weapons at their disposal, Delta Force operators are supported by a team of gunsmiths who helped customize the moving parts sites stock and grips Thio.

  • Each operators personal specifications and provide Delta Force snipers with hand loaded ammunition.

  • Seal Team six operators have a similarly impressive weapons cache.

  • They also favor the HK 4 16 and M four a one assault rifles, but use six hour nine millimeter pistols.

  • Seal Team six also uses the M K 46 M K 48 machine guns and a modified M 79 grenade launcher dubbed the Pirate Gun Seal Team six snipers have their pick of the world's best sniper rifles, like the M K 11, 12, 13 and 15 medium and long range sniper rifles, the M 82 50 caliber extreme long range rifle and the MacMillan Tack 3 38 which fires the deadly 3 38 lapu a magnum around.

  • Now that we know Maura about the selection process, training and operations of these Special Missions units, we can't help but wonder how they fare in a head to head competition.

  • If Seal Team six and Delta Force had to complete identical missions, which team would put up the superior performance?

  • Better yet, how would they fare against each other in a hypothetical, adversarial combat situation In a competition style head to head?

  • It would be a tight race, to say the least.

  • Both units air highly capable counterterrorism units, and they're similar training allows both teams to effectively execute many of the same missions.

  • Seal Team six would have a clear advantage if the competition included a marine element and they're homogenous culture.

  • And the fact that the unit members often knew and worked with each other prior to joining the ultimate lead team might just be enough to give them a slight edge on land, too.

  • If, on the other hand, we were to pit seal Team six and Delta Force against each other in a brutal battle, Royal the unit, similar training and overlapping mission objectives would mean that both teams would know how the other operates and therefore their usual tactics would be useless in an adversarial situation.

  • They'd have to improvise and rely on combat instincts to survive.

  • And this is where Delta Force has the edge.

  • Unlike Seal Team six operatives, the vast majority of Delta Force operatives have served in the infantry and have direct combat experience, making them or adaptable to changing battle conditions and more effective in an ambush.

  • Whether you think seal Team six is the last word in special forces or if you're a Delta Force fan through and through, there's no denying that both elite units are head and shoulders above every other unit in the U.

  • S.

  • Military and maybe even the whole world.
