Who Dares Wins.
— SAS motto
The whole SAS way of life is actually in the mind, it's nothing whatever to do with being the physical superman.
— Former SAS soldier

The Special Air Service is the primary special forces regiment in the British Army. The SAS is a part of the United Kingdom Special Forces and serves as a universal model for other special forces groups in the world. Formed by David Stirling in 1941 during the chaos and fighting of World War 2 ravaged Egypt, Stirling formed the Special Air Service into a raid group, highly trained and multi-skilled soldiers would move in more mobile units to assault German airfields and forward operating bases. In 1 year, the SAS destroyed more German planes than the RAF did in the whole war. To serve a high demand, the SAS modified a lot of their weaponry and vehicles to suit their demands. During their raids, they quickly road in on jeeps mainly, blew up aircraft, dishes and various other useful technology then left, disappearing into the night, and this made them highly feared and a myth to the German forces. The SAS also saw action in Malta where they held a fort for 4 days to prevent German forces from entering Britain's key oil countries, in West Germany targeting key German infrastructure in the final days of World War 2 and a long after stay after World War 2.

Following World War 2, the SAS were disbanded until 1947 when they were reinstated then quickly deployed on a black operation in India to deal with an anti-commonwealth rebellion which was causing great controversy. The SAS engaged the organization in a huge village raid which was claimed to have been done by Indian troops up until recently, 2 SAS troops were injured but 17 rebels were killed. In 1950, SAS spent many months training and preparing for the Korean War but their preparation was wasted as they were promptly told they would not be needed and were instead deployed to the Malayan Emergency. Described as 'Britain's Vietnam', the SAS was deployed to Malaya to act as a special raid, reconnaissance and anti-guerilla warfare unit. The SAS performed POW raid and rescue operations, reconnaissance on MNLA troops movements and killed a great deal of MNLA scouts, the SAS also fought many fire fights in the dense Malayan jungle, sometimes having to stay out in the jungle for days on end. Toward the end of the emergency, SAS operated more with MI6 to target higher up in MNLA that were active 'on the field' and destroy the moral of the MNLA troops, to do so, the SAS targeted and killed leaders which lead to the demoralization of troops and ambushed key supply routes. Eventually the Malayan Emergency was dispersed but the SAS was soon deploy to Oman to fight three secret wars.

The first secret war occurred when SAS were sent to the Jebel Samhan, an enormous and dangerous mountains which acted as an impenetrable fortress for the rebel group called the Dhofar Liberation Front. The mountains was a perfect base to hide from government forces because they were limited routes up the mountain and the rebels had complete view of the routes into the mountain meaning a few fighters could hold up an army. The SAS were handed this task to act as 'cannon fodders' and prove the special forces idea was idiotic. 100 men from the SAS traveled and fought their way up the mountain and made it roughly 3/4 before they lost their first man to a sniper during night time. Stirling believed a radical change in tactics was suitable. Stirling arranged for several friendly rebel units to attack in other key areas simultaneously to draw the rebel's attention away from the SAS whom would scale the mountain on an incredibly dangerous route that the rebels would not predict. The SAS scaled the route successfully before launching a attack on the mountain stronghold, the rebel leaders fled fearing the SAS would soon fight them and this lead to the disbandment of the DAF.

Several years later the SAS would return to the deserts of Oman, this time to once again to help the Omani government by training their soldiers to fight against the DAF. One of the most legendary battles fought in the second secret Oman war was the Battle of Mirbat. The Battle of Mirbat is perhaps the most famous, 9 SAS troopers held out against roughly 275 highly experienced rebels troops. At 6am highly experienced ex-army rebels assaulted numbering from 275 to 300 broke the outer fencing of the perimeter for a BATT Base (British Army Training Team) being utilized by SAS. The resulting battle lasted a long and brutal 6 hours in which SAS fought using mere semi-auto rifles and 1 heavy machine gun, and also at the start of the battle a heavy cannon was used but eventually this ran out of ammo. After a long and grueling battle, the rebel's numbers were expired and additional reinforcements arrived forcing the rebels to flee.

In a 3rd and final engagement two years later when MI6 tracked some of the last leaders of DAF to a small safehouse in the south of the country. By nighttime, four small SAS teams assaulted the house, blowing holes simultaneously on the perimeter wall of the designer house while a smaller charge blow a hole into the safehouse, while a shootout was the result of the safehouse, one of the SAS teams entered the house clearing several rooms before finding the last leaders hiding in the grand bedroom and killing them.

Since then, SAS has engaged in global conflicts including: The Troubles, the Falklands War, the War in Afghanistan, and countless others. In order to join, recruits must undergo the United Kingdom Special Forces Selection program. It consists extreme conditioning, special weapons handling, demolitions, and SERE (Survive, Evade, Resist, Extract) however it has officially been extended by the MOD's word, even without this, SERE is considered to be one the hardest training courses on the planet. They have had influence on virtually every Army Special Forces unit in the world. Their motto "who dares wins" has been adopted by over 9 Special Forces units. The term means that whoever makes the most daring moves in a battle will win.

Battle vs. United States Marine Corps (by Codgod13)

SAS: BlueBlueBlueBlueBlue

USMC: RedRedRedRedRed

A team of five SAS members are dropped off in an urban area via helicopter, while on the other side of town, a quintet of marines arrive in Zodiacs. The two have the same destination: a highrise clump of apartment buildings. Rain splatters on the rooftops, dripping slowly through the gutter and on to the floor. Each team takes a different elevator, and once on top, one man per team set up a sniper. The SAS sniper sees a Marine, and fires a shot, but misses. By the time he has reset the bolt, the Marine has taken cover. Another SAS member has flanked the entire marine team, and is grinning as he aims his G36. However, the marine sniper spots him, and buts a bullet in his eye. Blue.

The sound distracts the marine team, and as they turn, one exposes his foot, which the SAS sniper quickly shoots. He falls out of cover, and the sniper quickly takes him out Red. As he dies, the Marines team splits up and heads in different directions. The SAS team has done similar, and a member of each team confronts each other. An SAS member shoots with his Remington and gravely wounds the marine, but the marine had already shot the SAS member multiple times with an M4 Blue. The Marine collapses against the wall, hands on the wound in his stomach. He attempts to get up, only to get spotted by anothe SAS member and getting shot to death with a G36 Red.

A Marine sees two SAS members walking around and takes aim, but is shot at by the SAS sniper. The other two members are alerted, and turn around and start firing at the Marine, who has taken cover behind a staircase entrance. He gets an idea, and fires with his M203, killing one of the other two SAS members. Blue, and the other is quickly taken out by his Mossberg.Blue.

The SAS sniper, now outnumbered 3-1, hears a noise and turns around. He sees a marine with a KA-BAR behind him. As the American lunges, he pulls out a Browning and shoots the Marine multiple times Red. He sees another Marine, but his L96 is out of ammo. He picks up a Remington from a fallen comrade and sneaks up behind him. When the timing is good, he blows a hole in the Marine's chest Red.

The Marine sniper hears the noise, and goes to check it out, a Sauer in his hand. He catches the SAS sniper's back, and shoots at him, only to find his pistol was never loaded. However, the rain had muffled the sound of the click. He takes out a KA-BAR and grab the SAS member by the head, sending the knife toward his chest. The moment he grabs the SAS, he gets flipped over onto his back, and is staring onto the barrel of an 870. However, the shotgun is also out of ammo. The Marine takes this opportunity and grabs the Briton's leg, tripping him. He quickly loads a clip into his pistol. He points it at the SAS member, only to have it kicked out of his hand. The two warriors leap to their feet, knife in hand. They begin to grapple, until the Marine gets the advantage, and shoves the SAS member off balance. Quick as a snake, the Marine stabs the SAS member in the chest and leaves his knife thier, scrambling for his pistol. As he picks it up, he sees the Briton is still standng, albeit barely so. He shoots the SAS member four times in the stomach, and the force knocks him backwards off the highrise Blue.
