Last month, Kotaku published images of Taiwanese special forces. They were totally frightening. But Taiwan doesn't have a monopoly on scary troops. Other countries are ready to terrify you too.
On Twitter, many Japanese netizens are uploading photos of other scary special forces. Below, you can find some of the most intimidating troops from around the world. You might have seen some of them before, such as the lead frogman image, which previously went viral in the West. Others might be new to you.
