Obviously meant to say Special Air Service, not Special Air Force. This happens when you are doing special forces video at the same time. 🤦

The Infographics Show why would you ask an opinion on who has the best training if we don’t know what the SAS training is like? Nobody could make a reasonable opinion on this because you don’t explain both sides

@Shorty Shorty Delta was formed as a direct equivalent to the SAS and initially trained by the SAS, army rangers are more in line with the parachute regiment.

They need 12 mins to do a 500 in swimming? When I was in swimming, (age 12) i did a 400 in like 5 mins.
Debron Kashner (22 hours ago)
The conclusion is that their Special Air Service should end up basic training soon after they finish basic training if they think that they are the best among the best they will try to enter SAS training. But different to the US Navy Seals though they did not go to the basic training but they could go straight to the US Navy Seals to start training. For me SAS is the best with motto of Who Dares Wins.

I’m 15 I can do all the seals starting excercise requirements... why? I’m not excessively fit or anything - I play water polo and am pretty strong but don’t have a fraction of what it take to be a SEAl. Shouldn’t it be a bit harder?

Do people realise the SAS gets flown in to train/created the training manual for other countries elite forces? Including the yanks? Also, the Seals aren't even a fair comparison, they are not the very best of the best, just exceptional people amongst normal soldiers. Yet you still go on like they're the best lol.
LaPugsley (4 days ago)
@Martyn Borthwick Aye, but that's why I only took the Dutch as an example, we train moet foreign militaries, rather consistently. But we trained the Dutch once in the late 70's and they managed tae get a highly elite military front there on with minimal help from other countries.
Martyn Borthwick (4 days ago)
Aye mate, Israels task force is up there as well. Same again, SAS had a hand in training them i believe
LaPugsley (4 days ago)
Aye US and British special forces donnae really compare. Even delta and DEVGRU donnae compare tae our special forces. The only special forces unit in the world that can be compared to ours is the Dutch korps kommando troepen, but they donnae have as much experience by far.

SAS are like the lgbt versions of Navy Seals
LaPugsley (4 days ago)
First of all, what you're trying to say is the Navy SEALs are the straight version of the SAS, as the SAS was formed before the SEALs. Second US Navy SEALs are tier two, I reckon you're thinking about DEVGRU. And British special forces is still better.

Mike Donaldson (6 days ago)
right off the bat I couldn't watch this video. British Special Air Force? It's Special Air Service. Also, comparing Navy Seals to SAS, unless you're specifically talking about DEVGRU is like comparing Combat Engineers to Army Rangers.. both have a job, both do it well, but they serve two entirely different functions. The brits have a SEAL team equivalent, called SBS, or Special Boat Service. The better comparison would be SAS to 1SFOD-D or Delta Force, as Delta was modeled and built on the concept of SAS and they can fairly seamlessly link up and work together.

LaPugsley (5 days ago)
Rangers are elite, not special forces. And US navy SEALS are tier two, with an exception of DEVGRU (SEAL team 6) Also DEVGRU and SAS missions are more high profile, Delta force and SBS missions are more secretive.
Wayne Beck (7 days ago)
The seals training is based off the SAS
LaPugsley (4 days ago)
The US Navy SEALs training is actually based off Royal Marine / PARA training. DEVGRU's training is based off the SBS' training.

Well, the SAS do train the SEALS. Also, the SBS are better then the SAS but no one really knows what they do as they are that secretive.
LaPugsley (5 days ago)
Then how do you know the SBS is better? Also, the SBS have better training than the SAS, but they're not better. They have less experience than the SAS, and the SAS had members from the PARAs, Royal Marines, gurkhas, royal engineers etc. While the SBS mainly has Royal Marines among them. So the SAS has more experience, regimental diversity, funding and more roles. But this doesnae mean they're any better than the SBS, they're still both the best in the world.
Why was most of this video about SEAL training exactly?
Jake Gasson (7 days ago)
I think it's because the SAS are a lot more secretive about what they do than the Seals are, although they could have talked about some of the training the paras do since that's mostly where the SAS recruit from

The White Jaguar (12 days ago)
When it’s mentioned that SAS train in a welsh mountain and one person died there, I thought I would add that the mountain they train at is called pen y fan (welsh name) also known as the breakon beakons. I know this since I have seen them training there. (I live near pen y fan) it snows a lot there and it is easy to get lost which is another reason the soldier died
The White Jaguar (10 days ago)
@Gareth Shitshot Griffiths yeah I live the valley over from where it is. over to see friends who live near-ish to the mountain. i must've made a mistake in saying brecon beakons. just brecon, also just noticed your name, gareth, proper welsh.
Its Brecon. Are you sure you live near there?

But who got to Osama bin Laden first ;)
LaPugsley (2 days ago)
@SuprDez _ Should do some research yourself mate. Rangers and Delta did try tae track him down. And failed. Which is why the CIA (Those actually tasked with finding him) asked the British government tae do so. And no assassination was ever authorised because the CIA wanted tae drop a bomb on the compound, if they found it. If you actually read just about any book on Neptune Star, you could do some research yourself and maybe stop being blinded by patriotism.
LaPugsley (4 days ago)
@SuprDez _ Pal what are you on about? I commented saying the British government was tasked with recce in preparation for operation Neptune star and why.
SuprDez _ (4 days ago)
LaPugsley our special forces are equivalent to each other just accept that 😂😂 we are allies why is there so much competition.. well I kinda understand y’all.. y’all want something military related to be better.. but y’all just don’t got it 😂😂
SuprDez _ (4 days ago)
LaPugsley 😂😂 we had Rangers that tracked him multiple times into caves and found multiple hideouts but no assassination was ever authorized.. so do a little more research buddy 😂😂
LaPugsley (4 days ago)
You do realise British Special Forces (SRR, SAS & SBS) was tasked with intelligence gathering on bin Laden, because your recce troops couldnae do it properly. Our government was never tasked with the assassination of bin Laden.

Liverpool 11 (13 days ago)
The SAS and Navy Seals don't have the same mission parameters, if you knew anything you'd know that, a closer comparison would be the Seals and the Royal Marine Special Boat Section (SBS), who's lineage actually predates the SAS by a few months in WW2. The SAS US counterpart is Delta Force, who's founder served on attachment with the SAS in Oman and modeled Delta after the SAS identically. Both units cross train to this day.

prithivi raj why should the order be that

SAS gave the USA their training manual...and the US equivalent is not the SEALs. It is DELTA. Let's compare apples to apples, folks.
Flora Edwards (5 days ago)
@Justyne Sansoucy that's not what happened at all... An American (Charlie Beckwith) was working with the SAS in the 80s, realized they had small, able teams that could move behind enemy lines very well, decided to go back to America and ask the Pentagon for a blank check to create Delta, who are viewed as one of the premier special forces of the world... And no... Don't believe the Bullock's by the Brits that the SAS train Delta... Nobody knows the training regimen of Delta or Devgru... So I'd say Delta and Devgru has a huge edge over the SAS.
Jhared Rembert (6 days ago)
Delta and seal team 6(devgru) is on the same tier
Jake Gasson (7 days ago)
Yeah I was wondering why they were comparing the SAS to the Seals. Surely it would be more accurate to use the SBS instead of the SAS?
HDLTH (10 days ago)
Delta force is the highly covert special force team in the US that sometimes operated without the presidents knowing they are considered among the elite. Just for those who don’t know what delta force is
Justyne Sansoucy (10 days ago)
True statement. An SAS soldier actually worked with our elite forces and pointed out our weakness's. Gave a blueprint on how it should be done and that's when Delta force was developed. I actually just watched a documentary on SAS lol and soldier just explained it. Either way all special forces in the world are top notch soldiers!
Rouge Saytr (16 days ago)
For a basic rundown of SAS training I highly recommend you watch the tv show SAS:Who dares win. Ran by ex-SAS soldiers and gives the people who sign up a shortened week training program but consists of all the training stages (my favourite stage is the evade and capture/interrogation stage)

Fifa Gaming 123 the SBS training is a continuation of SAS training, they have all passed SAS selection and can choose to learn to operate in maritime conditions alongside the everything they did during SAS selection.

Frogmen actually had there start in ww2 where they put on fins and a mask armed with explosives (hence the name frogmen) to take out enemy beach defenses before an amphibious landing, they seen a lot of action in the pacific theater as well as Dday. There underwater demolition expertise is still a cornerstone of operation and training (BUDS-Basic Underwater Demolition and Seal training) is the pipeline and indoctrination they must go thru to become SEALS. They actually weren’t called SEALS till much later. The forerunners of the seals were the OG Frogmen of WW2.
Jeahboy72 (25 days ago)
I would say the SAS have less deaths in training due to the fact they get most of their recruitment from regiments that are already classed as elite soldiers like the para' s , sbs, commandos and marines.
