    There were 79 people on the assault team that killed Osama bin Laden, but in the end, the success of the mission turned on some two dozen men who landed inside the Qaeda leader's compound, made their way to his bedroom and shot him at close range - all while knowing that the president of the United States was keeping watch from Washington.

    The men, hailed as heroes across the country, will march in no parades. They serve in what is unofficially called Seal Team 6, a unit so secretive that the White House and the Defense Department do not directly acknowledge its existence. Its members have hunted down war criminals in Bosnia, fought in some of the bloodiest battles in Afghanistan and shot three Somali pirates dead on a bobbing lifeboat during the rescue of an American hostage in 2009.

    The raid early Monday in Pakistan has nonetheless put a spotlight on a unit that has been involved in some of the American military's most dangerous missions of recent decades.

    All Seal members face years of brutal preparation, including a notorious six months of basic underwater demolition training in Coronado, Calif. During "hell week," recruits get a total of four hours of sleep during five and a half days of nonstop running, swimming in the cold surf and rolling in mud. About 80% of the candidates do not make it; at least one has died.

    Inside the Navy, there are regular unclassified Seal members, organised into Teams 1 to 5 and 7 to 10. Then there is Seal Team 6, the elite of the elite, or, as former Seal member Lalo Roberti put it, "the all-star team."

    Seal Team 6 has historically specialised in war on the seas, but in the decade since September 11, 2001, it has increasingly fought on land in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Do We have an ultra secret force like the Team six of Navy Seals.

    Only Establishment 22 comes in my mind.

    Code Named - Seal Team Six .Such assault teams generally dont considered to be existant perhaps because they do gain thier codes only on when despached on some covert ops...... Like Team Six does.

    we can consider Est.22 is like NST6......As yeah its existance and some of its internal specific units still are a total secret for even enemy for whom it is considered to counter with.It takes orders from DG ranked officer (RAW) so we can consider this that even its not taken as part of army.

    So speculations will always be in air.And few such limited knowhow only make this an Indian NST6..... but a load of difference is thier too an even better... which cant be discussed here :ph34r: :india:

    It is imperative that we make assault teams like these to strike terror hubs in India and in our lovely neighbourhood because in future, Pakistan will only get more unstable. And this is a fact whether or not apologist Indians hate it or agree with it. Due to a faulty foundation, a false ideology and an unnatural tendency, the nation is at its brink.

    This will get worse in the coming 10 years and you will all see. I don't say that Pakistan will vanish from the earth, but it won't be the way it is now. In order to repeat anything that happened between 2004-2008 (thanks to the you-know-which government), we will need crack assault teams like this in all the three units--- Para Commandos, MARCOs and GARUDs.

    I hope tri-services commanders are seeing these developments and considering such moves.
