Very nice. Lucky SAS get all the coolest technology. Also, what a good payload, 20 of the best special forces troops, scary.

Global Security

Is that going to be used for the 'ordinary' non special forces part of the British Army?

the articule in the paper says it's for 'SAS's top-secret Counter Revolutionary Warfare Unit, the CRW, will be on permanent standby to respond intantly to any terrorist assault on Britain's internal security'.

Hi i dont mean to be a pain in the ass and pi55 on your bonfire but i am ex british forces and i can honestly say this helicopter technology is not new its been around for about 5 years now and the sas have been using it for about 4 years infact their helicopters are actually a lot more advanced than this one these days. And believe me the sas dont get loads of the latest technology they get the same as your average soldier give or take a few gadgets. The only difference is that they get a lot more of it at their disposoal (sic). It would be an insult to say the sas run on technology and gadgets. They still stick to pure sweat and blood and good soldiering trust me

Why is everyone so interested in stealth? What happened to the days when you let them know you were coming?
Pipes and drums...Stuka sirens....the men shouting?

they still do that
its during section attacks and stuff
you get taught to shout, scream and make as much noise as possible.
and the pipes thing yeah that literally scares the hell outa anyone. well excepot the irish but thats probably cause they aint sane.
i still think the SBS are better.

I have heard that the CRW will be supported by four of these aircraft, EADS have only just started production of the NH-90 so I would imagine that the SAS aircraft will be some way down the production line as they alreay have orders from France and Germany and the helicopter was succesful in part for the Nordic Maritime Helicopter Project. The aircraft is substantially bigger than any of the current Army Air Corps Aircraft and usually aircraft of this size are traditionally flown by RAF / RN or RM officers, so will the ownership of the aircraft go to the RAF? will they become part of 7 Squadron which flies the SF Dedicated Chinooks? Interesting questions any body have any answers?

That mostly died with the invention of the accurate Firearm. Along with bright colored uniforms.

Though some forces never used that tactic back when it was all the rage. The ninja of Japan comes to mind, They were the original special forces.
