Christ guy's, your like a me about this time last year.
Research the two units, the majority of SAS books out there are not only British, but are written by ex-SAS soldiers, so of course they've got a huge bias. I've read almost all of them. Sure, the SAS assisted in starting such groups as the SASR, FJSAS, NZSAS, 1SFOD-D (Delta Force). But that doesn't mean that they're the best, the equipment that's made available to them is the same that is made available to the SASR, sure, they might be called something, but in effect it will be the same thing, except for our 6x6's and their 4x4's. The SASR do have the toughest training, I know, I've got friends in defence, and I've been interested in this area long enough to get my hands on a lot of info for training. I don't care how many scuds they took out in Iraq, the fact is that Britain has more, and can afford to have more men because of their larger budget. Not only that, but chances are that the TEL's would've been destroyed because these guy's directed air strikes in. Not only have we said we're the best, but so have the U.S. We've done more damage for the size of our groups than anyone else. Why do you think our guy's were the first into Iraq? We were leaving for the Gulf November last year!
As for besmirching the organisation that got the SASR started? So what? It's not impossible for the student to excell beyond it's master, and our guy's have well and truly, they just don't have the huge experience that our guy's do, their best troups in the jungle are probably the Gurkhas. It could've been the SAS during the 50's and 60's when they were in Borneo and Malaya, but they've been out of action in the jungle for ages!
So what if you hear something that makes them sound tough in a competition? The SAS are tough, but the SBS are better. Just coz they did it and said it was like a normal training excercise doesn't mean that our blokes would've.
So do some more research on the SASR, they are the world's best, and with the $21m just pumped into the budget, will continue to be for some years to come!
