Default The Best

I would not leave out the Canadians, the JTF2 is alot like the SAS and for a country with nothing for a budget and lack of good equiptment they sure are trained better than almost everyone in the world?

Default The Elite Force

I have heard many assumptions about different forces of the world being the best, however in my opinion the simple fact is that the British Armed forces are the the most advanced trained army in the world. They have the best climate for army training and i think if everyone who has seen the way the Britain train their army they'll know that really noone comes close to them and the SAS. When i say this, i'm talking about the best army not the biggest or best equiped army.

Default British Army!

The British Army is world renowned at being the best. And it is the best. It has the Royal Marines - 12 months BASIC training. The Parachute Regiment, the SAS as mentioned, and the much overlooked SBS who are in fact superior to the SAS, making them the best soldiers in the world. On top of this, the basic British infantryman with two years experience is the equivalent of a US Army Ranger, who are supposed to be a cut above the average. Add to this the famous history and tradition of the British Armed Forces and you have the indisputably best army in existence. I would also note that her former colonies (Canada, Australia and the USA to a lesser extent) all have excellent militaries. Closely following the British Army would be the Bundeswehr. I must say the Russian Army has its skills, but I do not think it is a world class force.

Talking best PAID army

Can someone help me? I work in a military library in Germany and someone asked me who the best and worst paid armies were in the world and where America stood on that scale. Can anyone tell me how to find that info?

Personally, I think the Australians rock! But, come on guys, each country trains their troops according to whatever conflict they feel they are headed for. Right now, we are one of the best trained armies for desert fighting because of our experience there but we kicked butt in Europe, too. The only place we got handed to ourselves was in the jungle but that was because the troops were on such a tight leash as to what they could or could not do since "war" had not been "declared."

I think a good deal of you don't really know what you're talking about. British Forces and U.S. forces are the best overall, pretty much. The German forces are NOT that great anymore. They're military is in a very degreadated state right now.

And no, the British SAS are not far more hardcore than the U.S. Delta Force. The U.S. Delta Force is the American EQUIVALENT of the British SAS; back in the 70s, an American military officer (I believe) did an exercise or mission with the SAS and decided it would be great if America had an equivalent.

As for SEALS, Marine Force Recon, etc....do not downplay any of them either; British Royal Marines, Marine Force Recon, Navy SEALs, Special Forces, British SAS, etc.....they are all very very good.

Personally, the overall best fighting force period is the U.S. Marine Corps. No country has such a great self-contained "mini-military" like the Corps, and no the U.S. Marine Corps is no the best -equipped force. They always use second-rate equipment. But USMC Infantry officers are amongst the best trained in the world.

Do not make out like U.S. forces are so-so, just the "best-equipped."

And the British can afford to have higher standards for their Army, as it is a lot smaller than the American Army.

Overall though, the British and the American forces are the best, followed by other countries, like France's Foreign Legion

Now that is just the most ignorant post I've ever read. An Army Ranger, a "cut above the average?" :::shakes head::: And uhhh, it is impossible to know who are better than SAS or American Delta force as both are totally, completely CLASSIFIED. There is no information avaiable on either of them. The only info official on SAS and Delta is that they are very, very elite. That's it.

And the "famous history and tradition" leads to the best Army in existence? I guess the German Army, elite in WWII, though now in a very degraded state, is one of the best in the world then.

Yet the history of the U.S. Marine Corps, who fought so ferociously in WWI that the Germans gave them the name "Devil Dog," matters none. Or the Army Rangers. Or heck even the brave American militia man who fought the British Army in the Revolutionary War because they believed in their freedom. None of that matters i c.

The fact of the matter is that Britain AND America have amongst the best-trained troops in the world. I do not know why people have to always downgrade U.S. troops so much. Like I said, just look at the U.S. Marine Corps alone, the best overall fighting force on the planet (not army, but force overall, as they have their own air, land, and sea components), YET, the Marine Corps constantly gets buy underfunded, with second-rate equipment.

Russia's military is in a very degraded state now. They are not the Soviet Union. Do not even compare the current Russia military to the U.S. And virtually NO European country even trains for war anymore. Their militaries are in a very degraded state (for example, Germany's military allows long hair). The ONLY European military that trains half-decently for war is the French, which is because they're still messing around a lot in Africa and the likes, their interests over there.

And Britain, if you call Britain a "European nation." Actually I think the proper terminology is "the United Kingdom."

Get your head out of your @$$ and stop with the stupid fanboyism.

Cool Foshizzle my nizzle

AHHAHAHAHA omg are some of u guys serious

Russia is the ****est of **** ....

The strongest army in the world would have to be the americans for a number of reasons and anyone that would disagree with this would just be ignerent.

But the best trained and equipt in the world would have to be either the brithish or the Australians.

Both British and australian sas are the best in the world with delta force just as good but wat beats americas speacal forced is amercias climet as britan and australian terains are the best for training.

What makes America, Britan and Australia such well trained troops is our history.i mean look at france germany and russia. They all have really bad history. I mean come on the french would have to be the worst troops in the world. The are the biggest pussies also the italians god dam they were bad, and russia was just stupid. at the start of world war two russia has 11.5 million troops and by the end only had 2.5 i mean go figure. But as australia america and britian have some really good history, i believe thats wat makes us the best and gives us the spirt and as an ause i love it wen i hear stories of how america britan and australia fought for fredom.

In conclusion 3 armies have the best troops : America,Austrlia,britian
1 country has the biggest and strongest army : America
****EST ARMY IN THE WORLD IN HISTORY: Russia,France, Italy

I hope to read more posts and ill be watchin out

ANZACS

well i think everyone should know.. the best amry in the world is kinda hard to tell because every army in each country has somthing bette than ours..

you have to specify what it is about an army that is better because u cant say ohh russia is.. oh france is.. just not logical..

who has the smartest army in the world? who has the best snipers? who has the best jungle fighters? best weapons? best what???. talk about that let me hear somthing from everyone. cant compair hehehe..

a large army means nothing without the smarts to use it.. without great comanders there is no good army...
