Topic: British SAS in action!


Hi, not sure if this was posted before, I saw this video a couple days ago and was highly impressed, since it's rare to find live action footage like this. These are real videos and pictures of the british Special Air Service operators in action, check em out.


Footage of the SAS working alongside american SF folks, apparently tallying up over 140 taliban kills.

This is a video of the recreation of the Iranian embassy SAS storming, with interviews of real SAS operators. (poor quality)

Its crazy how that SAS guy was able to stand and shoot a M-60 machine gun straight.

It looks like hes shooting a M249 but i'm not sure. I think the Americans are Air Force combat controllers in the first video, their main job is to call air support in high risk area's like that.

Looks like an M60 to me, notice the longer barrel and stockier bipod. I may be wrong though. However, it's actually quite amazing that he's able to take the recoil and keep it straight. At one point he's almost thrown out of balance by the recoil. The fire discipline of these guys is astounding.
I also think those fighting alongside are actually Special Forces, more so because there's indigenous personnel there also. They're in fact accomplishing one of their main specialties, force multiplying, ie training local forces to avoid deploying more Americans, and calling airstrikes upon enemy positions.

Interesting that the Brits arent in uniform, just random civilian clothes. Isn't that against the Geneve Convention rules?

You might be right about the weapon, I don't think I have ever seen a M60 in person. I'm not sure if your talking about the Americans but their uniform says "Air force" on it and they were calling for air support. They were there as a contact for the brits to get ahold of the US Air Force. American SF were probably fighting some where else with their own detachment of controllers.

You're right the folks that were conversing are apparently air force. Probably forward air controllers as you said. I think some people were american SF there I believe though, because of the presense of indigenous forces and, well, the comentator said so
