    Here's a few from my country, Z Force, SASR (special air service regt), rats of Torbruk (not an elite unit as such but they did defeat Rommell in the deserts of north Africa during WW2. Rommell later told Hitler, "give me 2 divisions of Australian Soldiers and I will give you the world."

    heres mine

    A.R.W. The Irish army ranger wing. A small but highly professional special forces team. If you want someone to compare em to the S.A.S. are a good comparison. Both teams work closely and are more or less the same in their ranking on the world special forces table.

    no worries

    Protected? no not at all. Agood number of the pics were released about 4 years ago on the official army website but have since dissapeared.
    TOE? if I know what that is its not coming to mind right now or perhaps we have different terminology for whatever it is either way clarify.

    ok. if you want it in an actual table format gimme a while and ill see what i can do

    Simple enough:
    Unit strength is approximately 100 men who are organized into two assault platoons, a support platoon with medical, EOD, aviation(soon to recieve 6 black hawk helis among other things all for ranger use), etc. Each of the assault platoons has five assault teams of 3-4 men each. These men are all volunteers, selected from other units already serving with the Defence Forces. Advanced tactics are taught in parachuting, combat diving, small boat handling, and mountaineering. Interestingly, ARW members are returned to their original units after a set period of time, thus ensuring their expertise will be shared throughout the Defence Forces.

    The attached file is displaying just some of the weapons used. The wing also uses a variety of different rifles and assault weapons depending on the situation and one of their main weapons is as with the regular Irish army the exceptionally well built Steyr AUG (if you want its stats just ask).

    also used

    In the communications end of it they like the regular army use the SINCGAR radio which is quite a nice piece of equipment. when our intel boys in the Curragh got a hold if it (like anyone that gets em) they put in their own code and apparently it is the most complex and secure in existence at the moment. I'm in comms. Given most of the info on the SINCGAR is restricted I can say nothing more that you yourself could not already find out.
    I hope I have been informative and if you have any more questions I will answer them to the best of my ability if I can.
