BACKSTORY (Note, may be shoddy but give me some slack here, you're obv not constrained by my backstory for the unit or whatever for your own missions)

With the backdrop of British decolonisation and the cold war looming over the heads of the newly founded Altian government, a decision was taken in 1976 to create a new company based off of the British Special Air Service, the 1st Altian SAS Company (abbreviated: ASAS) was formed. The purpose of the unit throughout the cold war was to perform COIN and long range recon operations against communist insurgents hiding out in the backyard of Altis. However with the withdrawel and eventual dissolution of the eastern bloc countries, so too did the communist insurgents collapse and begin reintegrating into society after a deal was struck with the Altian government.

For most of the 2000's, the AAF underwent significant budgets cuts with the exception of the ASAS, mostly due to the neccessity of having dedicated counter-insurgent soldiers in the post 9/11 world. During the economic crisis's of Europe in the 2020's, the members of the unit, along with a significant chunk of the AAF began to plan a coup against the democratically elected government of the Republic of Altis and Stratis, which launched in 2026. The Altian SAS was involved in a operation in Pyrgos to seize the military outpost on the outskirts of the city, which they did so without any bloodshed, allowing the rest of the armed forces to move into the city and capture the civilian ministries and several high ranking members of the government.

In the ensuing civil war that followed immedietly after the coup, the ASAS as an organisation continued its alliegence to Akhentaros's coup forces, performing daring strikes on decisively held government positions, sabotage, and assasination of the remaining enemy officers they had to face. Although they had conducted their duties loyally throughout the civil service, once the civil war ended in 2030 the unit was accused by a few junta officials of sympathising with the former government after it was found that a few members had defected during the war.

In 2031, As the unit transitioned back into a counter-terrorist/insurgency role. CSAT, led by iran began making diplomatic overtures to the regime in charge of Altis, among the gifts Iran gave to Altis, was advanced equipment such as NVG's and optics from Russia....
