A SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) team is an elite tactical unit in various law enforcement agencies. They are trained to perform high-risk operations that fall outside of the abilities of regular officers. SWAT team members' duties include: performing hostage rescues and counter-terrorism operations; serving high risk arrest and search warrants; subduing barricaded suspects; and engaging heavily-armed criminals. SWAT teams are often equipped with specialized firearms including submachine guns, assault rifles, breaching shotguns, riot control agents, stun grenades, and sniper rifles. They have specialized equipment including heavy body armor, ballistic shields, entry tools, armored vehicles, advanced night vision optics, and motion detectors for covertly determining the positions of hostages or hostage takers inside enclosed structures.
The first SWAT team was established by inspector Daryl Gates in the Los Angeles Police Department in 1968. Since then, many American and Canadian police departments, especially in major cities and at the federal and state-levels of government, have established their own elite units under various names; these units, regardless of their official name, are referred to collectively as SWAT teams in colloquial usage.
Battle vs. Russian MVD (by Samurai234)Edit
A SWAT van pulls up over a hill and 5 SWAT members exit the van. Down below, inside a building, five Russian MVD members are walking around, when a bullet hits one of them in the head. (5-4) The other Russians take cover behind bins, and as soon as the SWAT team enters the building, they fire. One Russian fires his KS-23 and injures a SWAT member. Another Russian armed with a OTs-02 Kiparis takes him out. (4-4) Soon, the MVD spread out with the SWAT team in hot prsuit. One SWAT officer opens a door and finds a MVD officer there. He fires at the Russian with his HK416. (4-3) However, another Russian takes him out with his AN-94. (3-3) He exits the room and finds another SWAT member. He hurls a flashbang and stuns the officer. He then takes him out with his rifle. (2-3) He meets up with another Russian and they try to open a door. However another SWAT member shocks them both with a Taser Shockwave. He tries to take them to intergate later, but a hidden sniper takes him out with his VSS Vintorez. (1-3) Soon, the last SWAT member approach the still stunned Russians and takes them out with his MP5K. (1-1) He swicthes to his Glock Pistol, and looks for the last MVD member. However, bullets suddenly fire at him. He looks and sees the MVD with his Vintorez, without the scope. He fires the sniper rifle's rounds at the SWAT member, who dodges the bullets. The Russian swicths to his MP-443 Grach, and the two soon fire at each other. One of the rounds soon hits the Russian in the leg, wounding him. He prepare to neutralize the Russian, but he finds his gun is out of ammo. The Russian knees the SWAT member in the stomach and shoots the last round in his head. (0-1) He raises his gun in the air and yells "для для матери России!".
Winner: Russian MVD
The Russian MVD went through much harder training by far. The Situations SWAT units have dealt with fall tremendously short of what the MVDs have. That, along with the MVD's slightly superior arsenal, won them the day.
Battle vs. GIGN (by Urbancommando77)Edit
8 Membrs of SWAT arrive into the area, armed with HK416s and Remington 870s. The team charge into the nearby building, but no one was there. Three members break of from the rest of the team and set up a Taser Shockwave. While setting it up the shockwave, the GIGN sniper fires a round, turning one of the SWAT member's heads into red mush.
The GIGN members, armed with FAMAS' and P90s. The team sends two FAMAS wielding soldiers in the first room, where the Taser Shockwave was. The two men were shockd into submission, but three more enter the room, one of them fire a whole P90 clip into one. One SWAT member fires a shotgun round into his face.
The one SWAT member rolls behind cover, Blind Firing from it. A bullets hits the shoulder of a GIGN member, then another hits his chest, knocking him down. The other GIGN membr throws a flashbang and shields his eyes. "GRENADE!" The SWAT member yells to himslf, but the grenade detonated. The SWAT member fired randomly, fortunatly, three round entered the head of the GIGN. When he regained his senses, he ran to the injured GIGN member and blew his head into tiny pieces with his Remington Shotgun
Meanwhile, the rest of the GIGN members entered through the backdoor, entering a firefight with the SWAT members. A whole P90 clip entered the legs of one SWAT member, rendering him unable to fight. A GIGN soldier fired three shots from the FAMAS killing a SWAT member. Aftr the firefight was over, only two SWAT members remained, and same with the GIGN.
GIGN: 3 (The sniper wasn't in the firefight)
SWAT: 3 (The SWAT member who was blinded from a Flashbang wasn't there)
The SWAT members meet up and prepare to sneak attack the GIGN members. The GIGN members, armed with Benelli M4s, rush into the room, getting ambushed. A SWAT member fires his shotgun, hitting a GIGN member in the chest, killing him. The other GIGN member is then shot, but not before killing two SWAT members.
The last SWAT member walks outside with his Remington 700. He put the Sniper Rifle on a bipod and took cover. The GIGN sniper fires a round nearby, kicking up a bunch of dirt into the SWAT member's eyes. He raises his head, where the GIGN sniper could see him. Before he could shoot the SWAT member puts his head down. He fires at the sniping position, barely missing. Finally, the GIGN sniper hit the SWAT member in the head, killing him.
All the SWAT and GIGN members rise, for it was just a training operation and the gore was all in the member's head.
The GIGN won due to their better weapons that were more powerful and had better range compared to the SWAT's weapons that had less ammo and power.

Expert's Opinion Edit
Battles here were deemed to be unfair or otherwise not in accordance with wiki standards, and have been removed from the statuses of the warriors and displayed below.
Navy SEAL: 12345
On the roof of an apartment building, a squad of Navy SEALs grapple down a rope from a helicopter. Meanwhile, a SWAT team is preparing to enter the complex. Across the street, a SWAT sniper is laying in wait across the street. On the roof, the helicopter pilot (who's also part of the squad) lands the bird. He steps out, but is shot by the SWAT sniper.
Navy SEAL: 1234
The SEAL leader radios "Zulu is down, repeat, Zulu is down!". The squad's sniper pulls out his MK11, and finds the SWAT sniper in his crosshairs.
As the rest of the SWAT team goes inside, the leader radios "Talk, this isEntry Team, Serra is down and we're going in." to which talk responds "OK Entry Team, EMT is on his way.". As the SWAT and SEAL team's split up, a SWAT operator goes inside an old apartment and sets up a Taser Shockwave and takes cover in a closet as he hears footsteps approaching. A SEAL comes in and the operator presses the button for the Shockwave, bringing the SEAL to the floor, howling in pain. A second SEAL comes in and pulls the Shockwave's barbs out. The two SEALs fallow the cable to the operator, who shoots them both with his LWRC-PSD.
Navy SEAL: 12
Just as the operator is about to go out the door, a third SEAL (the sniper) shoots him with his Remington 870.
Just as the sniper runs to meet up with the leader, saying, "X-Ray, this is Serra, Jones and Miller are dead, repeat, Jones and Miller are dead.".......just before he is shot by a SWAT operator's Benelli.
Navy SEAL: 1
The remaining SWAT officers meet in the lobby. Before they can make a plan, they are blinded by the SEAL leader's Flashbang. As they stuble around blind, they are killed by the SEAL's M4
The SEAL goes back to the roof and climbs in the copter. He radios "This is X-Ray, mission success." and flies away.
WINNER: US NAVY SEALS
SWAT wasn't even a military force; they were a paramilitary force. SEALs, on the other hand, are an acutal military force who "take on missions deemed too dangerous for other military forces." They were good, but SWAT had more urban-weapons, whereas the SEALs had more combat freimdly weapons, plus CQD to back them up when things got up close and personal.
