In the case of war, militaries that are organized and efficient tend to win the day. Discipline is very important. Even with the best equipment, lack of organization will cause issues. This can be seen in history. So which countries have the best training? The USA of course has superior training. But if we had to send some of our soldiers to another place to train, which countries have training at a relatively comparable level to how we train here? Conversely, which countries have very poor training? I don't mean countries that are poor themselves and rampant with crime and violence. But are there countries who have decent economies but their military is not trained very well?

I would say US as this is just what I have seen in the movies but the training for seals looks really hectic and they are machines after that! I think also South Africa used to have good training and a force that could not be reccond with. The training in South Africa was also hectic and vigourous as well as psychologically effective on soldiers.

The British often have the longest and hardest training and selection. The Green Berets (Royal Marines - note this is not a SF regiment) were filmed from day 1 through 32 weeks training (fly on the wall); it is the longest and most arduous commando course in the world - TV series was Royal Marines Commando School (can be seen online). There are 7 consecutive days of testing which is said to be one of the hardest in the world. The British Paras also have similar training and testing regime.

The SAS and SBS (SF) training is mostly classified, but first they would have to get through the commando courses - these specialists only pick from serving troops that make the grade, before training/selection takes place!

The worlds most arduous selection testing is also British (sort of) - it is the Gurkha selection course in Nepal - thousands enter and rarely more than 10 will get through to the training part. The Gurkhas are amazing!

Australia and South Africa also have some very good commando training.

I would put all of those above US training - US is often more about boot on the ground and equipment than training (regardless of what movies and media tells you).

USA, China, UK, Russia, Japan. For me these are the countries that are best equipped and best trained in the world. Here reigns the discipline, military education and a myriad of qualities. Example the Japanese that its greatest feature is the discipline.

USA, RUSSIA, CHINA, UK and FRANCE for me. I think they are the best based on looking at thie global power. Oh may I add North Korea and Japan. I know that North Korea made some provocative acts last year but I think thier trainings are very strict.

In term of equipments then Yes the US, Russia, China however when it comes to training and based on my own observation as a military enthusiast I would say Germany, France, japan have much more sophisticated and intense training than the US and Russia.

The most obvious ones are pretty much America and Russia. I mean look at how many different spec ops units the US has like Navy Seals, Green Berets, and Army Rangers. Russia has their Spetnaz unit and it is still going.
