Special Forces Faction mod [SFF] that adds the British Special Air Service and Special Boat Service. It contains a range of both SAS and SBS units.
The Special Air Service is the United Kingdom's most famous Special forces group, rising to worldwide acclaim after the 1980 Iranian Embassy Seige, which was the origins of the distinctive appearance of the SAS in fiction- Black suits, gas masks and MP5's. That was 40 years ago, and since then the SAS have changed considerably. The SBS are the British Navy's equivalent force, and a sister unit to the SAS.
Motto- "Who Dares Wins" (SAS) and "By Strength And Guile" (SBS)
The Special Air Service in this mod are based on the 22nd SAS regiment, from mid 2014 to 2016, Afghanistan deployment. The SBS are based on a June 2013 deployment to Afghanistans mountainous regions. The SAS are dressed in Multicam uniforms or 'borrowed' American equipment, which they are well known for doing, and are armed with M4A1's, CQBR's, "Maximi" 7.62 NATO Minimi's and HK417's.
The SBS form a small recon element of the faction, and are dressed in more civlian or mixed camo gear and have supressed weapons- at the time the SBS were used for the more 'questionable' British SF missions because they have a lower profile than the SAS. The SBS are still work-in-progress, and will be expanded with additional units in the near future.
The SAS/SBS are supported by vehicles such as ATV's, LSV's, Troop transport techincals, with air support from a Chinook mk6 and a Lynx light attack helicopter.
Faction has full Editor, Zeus and ALiVE support (faction name SAS ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
