Gonna go with Havoc Squad, I haven't seen any ARC troopers take down a Sith Lord and their retinue by themselves.

Edit: By by themselves, I mean without Jedi support.
I'm not mean, you're just a sissy.

I remember getting him in my sights with my sniper rifle, but I could be remembering it wrong...

You probably looked at him through the sniper attachment's scope, but at no point did you take on Greivous.
That short moment of seeing him on Kashyyyk was all you got in Republic Commando, before your first fight with the Magna Guards.

That was a rescue mission, and they did take losses. Funnily enough it was to rescue half a dozen Jedi, that turned out to be three Jedi with only one of them still standing and two requiring medical attention.
When you look at what they took him on with, it really does put his movie depiction to shame.

Hand-Animated Clone Wars has some qualities that the CGI version will never have (Durge...). I still enjoy watching them now and again.
I <3 alts!

It is mentioned on the Star Wars wiki page, that most of the Havoc Squad was killed. If you speculate about the size, even though it is only squad by name, it could consist of more than just 6 soldiers. I haven't read any of then TOR novels, but I doubt that Havoc Squad is the only SpecForce unit in the entire Republic.

General Garza mentions it is the 325th SpecForce unit IIRC and it is codenamed Havoc. So in theory there could be more than one SpecForce squad.

On topic ARC troopers and all the clone troopers are clones, genetically engineered to perform at top efficiency and to be cannon fodder. ARC and Delta Squad have received additional training. Havoc fights for the survival of the Republic, while clone troopers just follow orders (look up Order 66).

My choice, Havoc Squad over ARC troopers

Exactly, I was saying that the Republic Special Forces was an entire division of thousands of soldiers, all divided into seperate regiments, platoons, etc. Not just a single squad/unit consisting of six soldiers. (Havoc Squad).
