The forces for each branch tend to focus on different types of missions or roles, although sometimes those duties overlap. And while all special forces face rigorous training, the Navy SEALs are often considered the best and most highly trained, earning them the title of most elite special forces in the U.S.
Who is more elite Delta or SEALs?
SEAL Team 6, officially known as United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), and Delta Force, officially known as 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (1st SFOD-D), are the most highly trained elite forces in the U.S. military.
Is it harder to become a Navy SEAL or Delta Force?
In the end, there’s no real definitive answer to who is tougher between Navy SEALs and Delta Force – they’re both badasses in my opinion – and if you favor either one over the other in terms of being tougher, that’s pretty much like taking sides in an evenly matched Army vs. Navy football game.
Who can be a Navy SEAL?
To become a Navy SEAL, you must be an active-duty member of the U.S. Navy and a U.S. citizen who can read, write and speak English fluently. You must also usually be under the age of 28, although waivers are sometimes allowed for candidates who are 29 to 30 years old.
