About This Quiz

You know the American Navy SEALs, but there is a good chance you know very little about Britain's covert special forces, the SAS (Special Air Service). Originally adopted in 1941 during World War II to fool Axis forces in a disinformation campaign and then into a special raiding squadron in 1943, the SAS is considered one of the most elite and least known special forces in the world. But that doesn't mean you don't know anything about this special warfare group. This is the quiz to test your intelligence network and see how much you know about the SAS. 

For starters, do you know the SAS motto? Or, how many troops make up a SAS squadron? Do you know which in war the SAS called in SCUD missile air strikes, or in which war they called in the air strikes against Serbian tanks? The SAS is trained to handle any situation in any environment from sea and air to mountains and desert. Their members train foreign armies and work alongside covert and special operation units from other countries. But they also handle other responsibilities, such as CP and CRW. Do you know what CP and CRW stand for? 

How covert do you think your intelligence is? Take this test to see what you know about the SAS!
