* The Imperial Russian army and succeeding RedsWithRockets during the Soviet era were this. Although media tends to only focus on the [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn ethnic Russians]] since they were dominant, there were lots of Armenians, Georgians, Turkic, Siberian, other East Slavic, etc. forces within the military. It's probably one of the best examples of this trope, and all the more ironic when the Nazis were defeated by an army of people they considered ethnically inferior.

** TheNewRussia is a downplayed example, as Russia is now one country, but still as a very diverse population in its army.

** Another WW2-era British outfit, and one of the iconic commando units, no less: the No 10 (Inter-Allied) Commando, which included Frenchmen, Dutch, Belgians, Norwegians, Poles and even a German troop composed either of German Jews or (to a lesser degree) non-Jewish German political refugees.

** The Allied Powers of WorldWarTwo, which became the [[CaptainObvious United Nations]]. They even form a FiveManBand of sorts; conversely, the Axis Powers form a FiveBadBand.

* Scientific and archaeological research groups often encompass multiple nationalities of expert. Sometimes it's because researchers in the same field need to pool their funding to undertake a project or expedition; other times, it's because of long-standing partnerships between academic institutions in different countries. In cases when the research takes place in still ''another'' country, the host nation may stipulate that its own scholars must be allowed to participate if the endeavor is to be approved by local authorities. Support personnel such as drivers, guides, and translators are likewise often recruited locally.

* In an airline disaster, it isn't uncommon to have the investigation team be multinational. It's entirely possible the lead investigators will be from the country the plane crashed in, but other members include representatives of the country the airline is based in, people from a third country that manufactured the plane, experts brought in from a respected agency from a fourth country like the American National Transportation Safety Board (if they aren't already there), and as modern airliners are often assembled from assemblies made from countries other than the one it was finally assembled in, you can have people from a fifth, sixth, and seventh+ countries there as well. And if the incident is believed to be intentional, you'll have investigators from all the countries represented by the passengers and crew as well.
* In disasters, search and rescues and other such situations, especially at sea, it isn't uncommon to see the flags of many countries involved. The Chilean Mine Disaster and rescue provides a textbook example where multiple countries provided equipment, personnel, technical expertise and fabrication in order to rescue the trapped miners.

* In a non-military real-life example, a large percentage, if not the majority, on crews on civilian ships (merchantmen) are this trope nowadays. While on naval (i.e. military) vessels, the crew typically belongs to one nationality, that of the state in whose navy the warship is, on civilian, privately owned ships, there is no such restriction, and crews are hired from a large international pool of seafarers (many of them hailing from Asian and Pacific nations). Also, besides the MultinationalTeam, a peculiarity of modern merchant shipping is the fact that ships can be, and are, registered in any country - not necessarily that of the owner, but rather one with the most advantageous legal regulations for and lowest taxation on shipping. All of that leads to the funny -but common- situation of a ship being owned by a company or private country from one country, sailing under the flag of a second, unrelated country, and being crewed by people from a third country (or, more likely, from a third, fourth, fifth, sixth...as said above) again totally unrelated to the first two.
