* In 1983, a group of Sikh separatists under the radical cleric Bhindranwale stormed and took over the Golden Temple in Amritsar Punjab, to both motivate the more religious Sikhs to their cause, and to have a fortifiable headquarters that would eventually become the capital of the theocracy Bhindranwale wanted to form. A Paracommando Major General [[FaceHeelTurn resigned his commission, defected to Bhindranwale and fortified this temple extremely well]]. As a result, the final assault launched by the Indian Army to recapture the place and eliminate Bhindranwale was a bloody affair resulting in massive casualties on both sides, and of civilian worshippers caught in the middle. In retaliation for this attack, Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was killed by two Sikh policemen assigned to her protection detail. As a result, there was a need to create a new PraetorianGuard like protection agency that carefully screened its recruits. Thus was created the National Security Guard. Later, it was decided that this NSG would also have a counterterrorist offensive arm. This lead to the creation of the SAG or Black Cat Commandos. These men were selected from among the Army Paracommandos and are permanently detatched from the army, although they retain their rank and regularly scheduled promotions. These men are not used by the army in behind enemy lines type covert missions - they are used only for hostage rescues and counterterrorist assaults. They place particular emphasis on hijacked aircraft recovery. They were first used in 1986 to once again root out Sikh terrorists from the Golden Temple. Since then they have been used in numerous aircraft hijackings, strikes on Kashmiri separatists, the reclaiming of the Swaminarayan Akshardhan temple in Gandhinagar Gujarat seized by Pakistani terrorists in 2001 and the reclaiming of the Taj hotel and Chana’s house during the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

Within the realm of military fiction, there are few areas that carry the same fascination, mystique, and underwear-soiling badassery as special operations. Known collectively as Special Operations Forces in the United States and Special Forces or some other variation thereof in the rest of the world, they are the elite within the elite; the bogeymen creeping up to the bad guys' beds in the night to snatch them away and take them to some mysterious black site in the middle of nowhere. They are the ''[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking sine qua non]]'' [[MisplacedNationalism of my-country-could-beat-your-country debates]]. When writers need to quickly demonstrate that their protagonist is a stone-cold killer, they just [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous name-drop one of these guys]] and they're good to go.

* Although the FBI has numerous SWATTeam units attached to their various field offices, HRT is a full time highly specialized strike team called in only on the most challenging operations. Regular SWATTeam members must also carry out the usual investigative duties assigned to FBI agents, but HRT members spend all their time on operations or training. The unit often consists of agents who’ve had previous SWAT experience or were Spec Ops veterans prior to their joining the FBI. In fact, one of their founding members was Tom Norris, a former UsefulNotes/NavySEALs Medal of Honor winner who won the medal for the rescue of USAF Colonel Iceal Hambilton, as told in the movie Film/Bat21. Every operator is trained at and must pass the Marine Corps Scout Sniper school, and rotates through assignment as a sniper or an assaulter. HRT often trains with Delta Force and Seal Team Six On Close Combat scenarios involving hostages, and use much the same equipment and tactics. Although this unit has had multiple successes, their most famous operations are also their most infamous and controversial - the Ruby Ridge incident and the Waco siege.

* After the debacle of Operation Eagle Claw, the Navy was ordered to contribute men to the newly-formed Joint Special Operations Command (not to be confused with Special Operations Command).

* Whenever the CIA needs to conduct paramilitary operations, and, usually, when they need to pretend someone else did it, they deploy the Special Operations Group (part of the Special Activities Division), the ''de facto'' successor to the OSS. Aside from the former ISA, they are America's most secretive special operations unit, and perhaps the most capable. Their missions go beyond special operations and straight into covert, clandestine, black, white, blue, and tie-dye ops (Do you even know what a tie-dye op is? Exactly). The SOG is responsible for a number of innovations in special operations, including [=HALO/HAHO=] jumps and the Fulton surface-to-air-recovery system (STARS). The STARS was successfully deployed in Operation COLDFEET, when two CIA SAD operatives broke into and looted an abandoned Soviet ice station in the Arctic, during [[{{Film/Thunderball}} Operation THUNDERBALL]], when Film/JamesBond [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBssigGUYFg escaped from SPECTRE]] using the system, [[note]]Something many audiences found [[RealityIsUnrealistic implausible]][[/note]], and most recently in HongKong by a [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga masked vigilante]] who abducted a [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs prominent local businessman.]] Highly-trained and often multilingual, details of many of their missions are classified, though they were instrumental in the raid on Bin Laden's compound (SOG officers already in the area cut the power to Bin Laden's compound--and they got clean away afterwards), and vital in the capture of Ilyich Ramirez Sanchez (A.K.A Carlos the Jackal) along with the French, as well as the capture of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the Maoist terrorist Abimael Guzman, mastermind of the USS ''Cole'' bombing Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, and Afghan insurgent leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar. One program, since terminated by Leon Panetta, was the targeted abduction or/and killing of Al-Qaeda operatives worldwide. They also operate the CIA's controversial drone program. Basically, they are everywhere. They could even be behind you as you read this! Spooky, eh?
