Wasp, what's going on, man? That was a bit of a rant, a weird disconnected rant at that. Not like you at all. Vince wasn't a coward, none of those men were.
I know you weren't saying he was, but I wanted to clear it up.
Every man that is accepted into the SAS or SBS is the best of the best. Period. Talk about Navy Seals, Delta Force, Australian SAS, Spetznaz all you want.

I cannot see the whole unit only carrying 250 beyween them. 250 rounds each would be more acurate.
Both McNab and Ryan have become rich of the backs of the 3 dead team members.

Andy McNab alone carried 290 rounds 5.56mm.Plus a further200 rounds for the Minimi.Other members carried similar amounts plus PE 4 explosives as they were tasked to destroy a scud site

Reason why their mission failed? Freak weather.

The SAS guys can pick up enemy ammo you know and use it if the calibers match, if not then they can just dispose of the one they were issued with and take the iraqi one. I'm sure 250 soldiers drop alot of ammo...

No way. 8 men trying to flee. What, they lobbed a couple of grenades into a crowded mosque at lunch time ? Women and children attacking them with sticks and stones out in the open ?
