Phoenix doesnt need SWAT surely all they have to do is switch off the air conditioning and people would give up in minutes flat.

GSG-9 is a true police SWAT unit, if im not mistaken. The others are involved in a whole veriety of usage, hostage rescue being one and not the main one by any means.


Was the Israeli YAMAM in the competition?
There are (or were) 3 parts to GSG-9. GSG-9/1 being a counter-insurgency team, GSG-9/2 are a maritime outfit and GSG-9/3 are airborne. They are not just a regular police SWAT unit. It must have been elements of Team 1 that took part in that competition.

Probably only the SAS have the same level of respect in counter-insurgency that GSG-9 enjoy.

The members of GSG9 never show their faces in TV. So nobody knowns that they are GSG9 they just appear as regular members of the 'Bundesgrenzschutz'

I did? I'm not an expert. I got my info from this link that lists "The Illustrated Guide to the World's Top Counter-Terrorist Forces" Samuel M. Katz ISBN 962-361-602-3, as its reference.

Sherman, you are right about Sayeret Matkal being regarded right up there as well.
