With the news of Project GREYFIN’s first stage approval, Defence Connect has decided to showcase the talents and capabilities of one of Australia’s Special Forces units, the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR).

One of three Special Operations Command combat units, the SASR has a long and esteemed history within the ADF, with its lineage traced back to the Australian Z Special Unit and Independent Commando Companies that fought during the Second World War.

SASR special forces conduct challenging small-team operations that involve high-level precise military skills, often in remote areas and with little tactical-level support.

SASR personnel are selected following annual testing and trials. However, the special forces aspect involves rigorous selection and training cycles before they are to wear the famous sandy-coloured beret.

Force elements from SASR have served in various major conflicts (including Borneo, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq) and provide support to peace enforcements and peacekeeping operations (including Rwanda, Somalia, Cambodia and Timor-Leste (East Timor).

In addition to international operations, SASR remains prepared to meet domestic and offshore counterterrorism tasks.
