Special Air Service.
The name for England's most powerful, elite special forces squad, specializing especially in counterterrorism. History dates back to WWII, thus making this unit also specialize in battlefield tactics.
What makes the SAS so superior in countless aspects is that their men have experience. The training is, naturally, extremely rigorous and demanding, and to top it all off they put you through a jungle course that lasts for 7 weeks. If you make it through the SAS's hellish training, you EARN a beret (as opposed to the US Army Green Beret being given them).
The SAS is perhaps the second most powerful commando unit in the world, just slightly below the US Navy SEAL unit. But as mentioned before, the fact that the SAS are experienced could make their superior American counterpart look a little iffy in certain areas.
"There's also the german GSG-9 (Grenschutz Gruppe) & KSK (Kommando Speziel Kraft), the french GIGN (I forget what it means, which is no surprise because I bearly remember french-writing), the italian COMSUBIN (Italian Navy SEAL's), south-korean RKMC (Republic of Korea Marine Corps, aka : Invincible Marines), israeli Sayeret, japanese SAT (Special Assault Team), among COUNTLESS other special units......but the SEAL's and SAS are practically thee cream of the crop."
"Who dares, wins!"
PS : Actually, the german GSG-9 and japanese SAT are more homebound-operated....I think the SAT is homebound, I dunno, maybe further....but Germany uses the KSK for international capabilities. Just FYI.
SAS or Special Air Service
One of the British Army's elite special ops and counter-terrorist unit.
The original and first modern special op unit created during World War 2 by Captain David Stirling, designed to work covertly and cut off from support for long periods of time, usually work in teams of 4 or 8.
The SBS (Special Boat Service) specialise in marine operations are a "sister" unit of the SAS
The SAS are renound for their eudurence and ablity to get the job done when they are vastly outnumbered and out gunned. Their training is know to be the toughest of any of the worlds military's special operations units where less then 10 out of 100 get accepted.
The Training and structuring of the SAS has been so effective that it is now used for most spec ops units around the world including the US delta force and the french GIGN.
Who Dares Wins
The Toughest, most effective and best trained special operations unit in the world
Special Air Service, Britains Elite Special Forces which are no doubt the most professional Counter Terrorist team in the world along with out in the field soldiers. Where ever you put them be it desert, mountain or jungle you can expect the SAS trooper to come out alive and a high enemy kill count.
"Who Dares Wins"
Formed by David Sterling to aid montgomery in North Africa in WWII, the SAS was a team of five officers and sixty men who were all drawn from the commando units. They were put through gruelling training. Early failures were overlooked in the light of successful tactics and destructive capability shown later in the war.
When one member was captured, he escaped, and walked 200 miles in eight days of blistering desert heat with no more than a map, compass and a pair of shorts to rejoin his comrades.
See balls of steel
Special air service.
The British SAS are the most elite, all powerful suppersoldiers on the plannet. At least ten times better trained than any other nations special forces. Equaled only by the British SBS.
EX 1: Tell an SAS man to fuck off and see what happens.
EX 2: The SAS went on a suicide mission last week, no casualties.
The BEST counter terrorism/combat/recon/ force in the world. In the Vietnam War the Australian SAS had a kill ratio of 500+/1. They became known to the Vietcong as the Phantoms of the Jungle.
THe australian sas is one of the most gruelling training processes in the world.
The SAS (Special Air Service) is the British Army's counter-terrorist, special force organisation.
The SAS have done many things in history, played a massive part in World War 2, the conflict of Ireland and the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and many, many other things, but heres an example of the eliteness:
On 30 April 1980, six Iranian terrorists took over the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, London. After six days of unsuccessful negotiations and one hostage's murder, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher ordered an assault. At 19:26 on Monday 5 May, the SAS went in. More than thirty troopers entered the building, including some who went in across the now famous balcony filmed live by the BBC. A diversionary attack was staged and other troopers went in through the ground floor. One hostage was killed by the terrorists, but within minutes the terrorist threat had been eliminated, with five of the six having been killed and one captured. Of the original 26 hostages, 24 were safe. The operation was hailed as a great success and was to change the way the public viewed the regiment.
The SAS is widely regarded as one of the finest and best-trained special forces units in the world, and is the sole creator of special forces, other special organisations base themselves on the SAS, such as the Americans' Navy Seals and the Germans' KSK.
Damn, the SAS are so elite, I wouldn't want to be on their bad side, they are the most elite, best trained and loyal soldiers of the world. Its like they have auto-aim, they're so great.
Absolute badass motherfuckers. A single 4-man group could probably defend themselves against half of Al-Qaeda. The best exponents of the FN Minimi light machinegun.
The Elitest of the Elite. Equalled but not bettered (in most respects) by The US Navy SEALS, the Russian Spetznaz and Delta Force.
OH MY FUCKING GOD, 1 man from the SAS has a machete and he's gonna gut all of my 99 AK47-armed Talibans. RUN!!!!
