Name: Not released to the general public.
Must have served at least 3 years in a previous military - not dependent on Country nor regiment, etc. But you must be able to read maps, have basic
hand to hand, close quarters combat, ranged combat and be able to swim. Eligible to men only.
Training would be the most important part of the Special Forces unit. It would be split up into several phases:
The First Phase: For the first four weeks, you do nothing but constant drills. Distance running, swimming, etc, split up into several different areas
of the world. You would be expected to keep a consistent time of a set distance not dependent on climate.
Because of this, the training would be split up like this:
First week spent in Western Europe (Possible Wales) where you would be expected to get used to the condition of the mountains, able to climb them
while carrying your ‘pack’, which would weight in at roughly 50lbs + side arm and weapon. This would be used to eliminate those who the harsher
condition would probably kill. A three day, hide and survive mission would be done at the end of the week.
Second Week would be spent in a tropical environment, that would be found in areas such as South America. The same as the first week would be done
here, including the three day survival mission.
Third week would be spent in a desert, such as in Africa done under the same strict conditions as the first two.
The final week of stage one would be spent in an area such as Alaska, Siberia, etc. Repeat as above.
If captured during the ‘Hide and Survive’ stage the captives would be ‘interrogated’. Depending on the week would depend on how ‘harsh’
the tactics of the interrogates were. After all, it has to prepare them for what could happen. If they talk or give away too much information,
they’d be thrown out.
Phase Two: The second phase would be almost a warm down from the first phase - which was overly intense, to break them in and weed out those who
shouldn’t take part in the later stages of selection.
Phase Two, is a medical training stage. They’d be placed in an Emergency Room for two weeks, where they’d learn basic ways of dealing with burns,
cuts, etc. The next two weeks would be placed on real life scenarios, such as a bullet wound or knife wound. They’d also in the last week learn of
plants, weeds, etc, that can be used to help stop bleeding in harsh environments.
This would then bring stage two, to a close with a medical exam - that they’d have to under go. (practical). Once this was completed they’d get a
“One week” rest period before the tough parts began.
Phase Three: After being given a ‘relaxation’ week, where they are able to go back home they get pushed straight back into intensive training.
For 6weeks, they follow a strict routine. Getting only 6hours sleep a night, they are expected to spend one full day of the week practicing drills.
This drill would include basic weapons training. Firing, dismantling, cleaning, reloading, etc. As well as a 3mile run, obstacle course and a mile
swim. (Every day.) And every other day, a one hour intensive Krav Maga work out would be done.
And every Sunday, a full day in the “Kill house” the same design as the SAS uses. This intense short 6 week course, would be used to iron out and
problems with each recruit and build stamina as well as show them they‘re capable to handle whatever can be thrown at them.
Once this 6week course is done, it gets changed completely.
Phase Four: They get introduced to the kit they would use for different situations. Spend two hours in the pool, two in the gym and two learning more
Krav Maga and a mixture of martial arts, as well as another two learning military tactics, aircraft designs, tanks, etc. As well as learning basic,
Arabic and Chinese and a final two hours in active training. (Kill house, etc.). This would last four weeks.
Phase Five: Once this is over, they are then ‘dropped’ in a ‘hostile environment’, where they have to return to base. As thought they had
just gone done a mission and are returning. They get followed, by ‘hostiles’ and if captured they are thrown off of the course.
Phase Six: This ends with constant weapons drills, kill house training, diving, HALO and HAHO training as well as basic understanding of both
artillery and helicopters and heavy understanding of explosives.
Graduation! Woot, woot!
Once they graduate, they are kept learning Arabic, Chinese, Hand to Hand combat, fit and trained on firearms, as well as other skills they’ll of
learned through the course.
Kill House: Hostage rescue perfection!.....That is what the killing house is all about.
The killing house is a long building with many rooms of different size, and different type, linked with video camera's that can be used for
Since this Speacial Forces team will be on 24 hour stand by for anti-terrorist and hostage rescue operations, they spend many hours and a hell of alot
of ammo, refining their skills in the killing house!
Room Clearance Drills: As all training begins with the basics, so does the killing house training. Starting with how to enter a room and to take out
a target in front of him...very basic. As they master each skill, they move on to more difficult ones, such as multiple entries, more targets, more
hostages, clearing a whole floor.
As training continues, so a few more tricks are added to ensure that the SAS teams can handle any given situation. Speed, accuracy and split second
decision making are all extremely important, as many hostage situations can take place in extremely confined spaces.
The trick to a successful hostage rescue consists of a few things: as much information as possible, you don't want to end up in a situation where you
are taking a knife to a gun fight.; split second decisions and timing, and most of all excellent team work!
Depending on the environment they are going into would depend greatly on the kit they’re taking.
So far, I’ve only worked on one which would be:
Close Quarters Combat: In this situation, the teams would be given these weapons:
MP7A1: extended clip, so they can hold 40 instead of 20 and a laser sight placed on the bottom. Two of these carried, one per thigh. With Four extra
clips placed on the small of the persons back, Flash bangs, torch, small first aid kit and two way communication. No back pack, as this causes
unnecessary weight. Knife.
--all I could think of, in one hour. =P I'll add more no doubt, later on.
