British Army (1707 - now)
Detailed description of individual operations from 16 April 1941 to 22 March 1945.
Both the First and Second Gulf Wars were characterized by a wide participation of elite troops. Particularly elite formations include special forces. Deployment in both conflicts is largely analogous. However, unlike the first, the second war did not involve elite and special forces of France and Arab countries.
The survey was a permanent and most important activity of special forces. The British SAS allegedly infiltrated Baghdad in disguise, as did members of the Delta Force.
Czechoslovak soldiers preparing to parachute drop above the Protectorate in the Scottish mountains underwent similar training methods as the legendary British Commandos .

If someone says they are not afraid to fight under fire, I do not trust them. I've always been scared - like anyone else. True, SAS have an excellent reputation, but they do not have superhumans; their members may be extraordinarily courageous, but like everyone else, they are not immune to fear. The strength of our regiment is that it has people with a cultivated ability to control fear and actively respond to every danger they face.

A new member of the SAS is assigned to one " Saber Squadron ", part of the regiment comparable to the company. Each of them has, in addition to the staff, four " Troops " operational units consisting of 15 men and a commanding officer. The tactical subunit of each " Troop " is a four-member " Patrol ", the cornerstone with which SAS performs all its tasks.
SAS's activities in Northern Ireland are a deadly game of cat and mouse with perfectly trained, well-equipped and capable terrorists. This work is charm and dangerous, but extremely important, and is carried out at the highest level of professionalism.
SAS troops control a large number of weapons. Field cannons, mortars, machine guns, guided missiles, mines and other traps, etc. Of course, we will be interested only in small arms, because we could theoretically fire from them. The following description is not a common characteristic of weapons with tactical and technical data, but a subjective view of SAS members on their combat characteristics.
