2. Special Services Group (SSG), Pakistan
Imagine marching 36 miles in twelve hours and running five miles in full gear in just fifty minutes. These are some of the tasks that Pakistan’s Special Forces undergo in their trailing regime. The group came to light when they marched into a building and rescued more than thirty five people who were taken hostage from the army headquarters.
Their involvement in the historic Indo-Pakistan wars and the Soviet Afghan War is well talked about. During the infamous Pan Am Flight 73 hijack, SSG showed courage in rescuing passengers and minimalizing the damage. Another notable operation which saw SSG commandos was when they rescued hostage children from a hijacked Afghan school bus in just 20 seconds. Yes, it took seconds for the SSG to finish three terrorists.
