The Americans did it with the Rangers (which I detailed below); and, the Brits with their Royal Marines fighting Commando units (with their mix of close and stand off companies) and SFSG (which have a fire support platoon that can employ MMG, HMG and ATGM in each strike coy). I imagine there are other none SOF organizations that have pushed more down to the coy level; operate in a distributed manner; and, are focused on striking and defeating peer and near peer entities.
It doesn't matter how 'special' you are as a unit. Where meat meets metal, the metal will (usually) always win.
I'm guessing that the uncertain reality we're living through right now will force us to maintain a mixed force of light and heavy units, for that reason.
