NZSAS First Among Equals – Part 1

I admire good military training so when I found this video I just had to post it.  Here it is with the description.  Its all about New Zealand’s top military troops.


*THIS IS NOT MINE, Credit goes to croc_hunter from Teamxbox, He is allowing me to upload these videos* Enjoy! Check profile for other parts NZSAS: First Among Equals is a world first – an exclusive documentary series about the inner workings of this country’s most famous elite, the “top 1 percenters” of the new zealand defence force – better known as the NZSAS. Based on 3 years of unprecedented access, this New Zealand series includes never before seen footage of the successful few who’ve earned a place in New Zealand’s leading military unit. It observes them under pressure as they struggle to learn a multitude of expert skills including parachuting, marksmanship, demolitions, infiltration, survival techniques and communications – all to the SAS benchmark.

    pfft nzsas, kiwis so typical. how many sas soldiers does nzhave anyway, like 20 they aint doing shit in any wars

  9. @billyroadkill True well good luck, I’ve got a couple of mates doing selection this year. Officer training is hard from what I’ve heard, it’ll give you a good idea of how you’ll cope with selection.

    @nzsastrooper im trying out in a couple of years. but it not just the run you have to be able to carry 30-40kg on your back +holding a 20ltr jerry can for 2 days…… not easy my friend

  11. billyroadkill | April 4, 2010 at 1:01 am |

    @Gocufol i climb mountains in Europe im used to high altitudes over round Germany and Austria im hopeing on joining army soon as officer then do my SAS training

  12. nzsastrooper | April 4, 2010 at 1:14 am |

    i can run 3000 mtrs in 11min 18secs and im only 15 ! i do athletics for a club and i want to try make it into the nzsas when i grow up

  13. @billyroadkill Yeah it’s not a hard run but you want to be well under 10 if you’re going to Waiouru because the altitude can easily add 30sec to your time.

  14. billyroadkill | April 4, 2010 at 2:00 am |

    @Gocufol really that kicks ass i can to 2.8 in 11mins at a comfortable pace

  15. @billyroadkill 2.4km

  22. “who dares wins” so much respect to the NZSAS unit OHH RAH

  23. MentalicMike90 | April 4, 2010 at 7:21 am |

    Which is said to be one of the most toughest infantry courses in the world, which many men fail. She had more trouble with it then most men, but she passed it, and I think she deserved a slot as a Royal Marine (she didn’t get it because of combat restrictions on women – she got a Commando support post instead)

  24. MentalicMike90 | April 4, 2010 at 8:15 am |

    No – but I have relatives and friends in the Canadian Forces (where women are allowed) and British Army. The CF don’t have many problems with it at all.

    You seem to be ignorant of why there is an exclusion policy on women in combat. It’s not because of strength as you’re implying – it’s because of unit cohesion.

    It’s a biological fact that men are stronger than women, but at the end of the day it comes down to individualism too. A woman has passed the Royal Marines Commando Course.

  25. @MentalicMike90 are you in the military….have or are you serving in a combat unit? if so do you honestly believe a woman could do what you do. If you havent then how can you say fair enough. If a woman has what it takes to pass selection then it aint hard enough. G.I Jane was just a movie
