    I'm curious as to what set's various Spec Ops teams apart. I've heard on this forum before about each Spec Ops having different mission profiles and parameters. Does it mean that different branches are better suited to different missions? For instance, what would the mission profile be for(including but limited too)

    SEALS
    Delta Force
    Marine Recon
    SAS

    Sorry if this seems annoying, but I'm just curious.

    I'll someone on the forum that actually worked in SOC answer, but Marine Recon Bn is an asset of the Marine Division, they are not special ops. The Marine Corps did stand up MARSOC several years ago, however.

    Whoops on the Marine Recon, thanks for the clarification. MARSOC? Sorry, I don't know a lot of military jargon.
