SAS Weapons

In 1984 the British Army commissioned a short internal film explaining the organisation, role and tactics of the Special Air Service or SAS. The 34 minute film offers an interesting insight into the weapons, equipment, tactics and organisation of the SAS in the 1980s when their public notoriety had just begun to grow. In this video we take a look at the weapons shown in the film.
