What is the Army equivalent to a Navy SEAL?

Maybe the Rangers. Those guys are definitely not a joke.

Iraqi teletubbies.

the rangers duh

Are you referring to the fact that the SEALS is the Navy's special operators? Then it would be the Army Green Berets.

Anyone that says Rangers obviously knows nothing and should not be in this category. Rangers is not special forces, it is a leadership course. Anyone can become Ranger qualified.

Green Berets are similar to regular SEALs

Delta is considered interchangeable with DEVGRU (SEAL team 6, the best SEALs)

Definitely NOT the Rangers... Anyone who said that doesn't know what SEALs do, what Rangers do, or how either of them train

Also, anyone who says Green Berets are more versatile is a moron, they do the same stuff in the air and land but SEALs are the undisputed kings of the water.

There is no equivalent.

Why would the US want unit's in separate services that are equivalent ?

Each spec op unit, was started to fill a mission need, that wasn't being met.

So they all have different mission statements and train for different things.

The closest the Army would have, would be the Ranger Regiment.

Since they are both trained for direct action assaults.

But the Seals receive more training and train for missions involving fewer people.

Where the Rangers are trained for Company and Battalion sized missions with supporting arms.


Seals are trained to attack a target, damage it, then get out.
( attack an airport, damage the runway, blow up the fuel farm and aircraft. )

Rangers are trained to attack, seize and hold a target for a short period of time.

( attack the airport, seize control of the airport, so that aircraft can land with follow on forces or for evaluation of hostages )

There is no equivalent to the Navy Seal. Yikes.

Don't listen to Jay

He doesn't know **** about Special Forces.

Want to know where he get's his "knowledge" from? He got it from working a desk job in the Navy reviewing SEAL team records. The closest he's ever gotten to action was when he was stationed on a ship shagging "Sanchez" in the butt.

Well I have seen some rather dump answers to this question.

Fact : The Army Special Forces . All services have a group that are considered elite, Even the coast guard.

Force Recon, Seals and Special Forces will work with each other at times.

Army Special Forces(Green Berets) equivalent, if not more trained and more versatile.

2009-11-23 16:46:00 +0000
It HAS to be the Rangers, no matter what anyone says.

Because if they think otherwise, then who else are closer??

2009-11-23 16:35:01 +0000
Im wondering the same thing, The only thing I could even think of would be the Army Rangers, but I dont think they are equivalent.

2009-11-23 16:38:25 +0000
Special Forces. They have SCUBA training in Key West.

2009-11-23 16:36:12 +0000
Whoever thinks Rangers are equivalent to SEALs is a retard.
