NZSAS First Among Equals – Part 7


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.

    @ajr666 the trainees vary in experience. some have been in the army for some time and have done these courses however some have only been in the army for a year. selection is about picking who can cope with sf type missions not how good you are at rapelling. hope that helped.

    @ajr666 its not so much ‘basic’ skills, but its turning basic skills into absolute perfect advanced skills all while evading the enemy or in situations pushed to the extreme. its about puting them in extreme conditions

  6. Maybe Im wrong, but it seems all of these basic skills are brand new to these SAS trainees?? I thought the SAS only selected the best most experienced guys? I know in the US all of these skills such as rapelling, static line jumps, and fast ropeing, would have been perfected in Ranger school or SF before they were allowed to even try out for DELTA.

    John Key is foolish to talk about the SAS so openly.

    You obviously know very little about Buchanan, and you would never say that to his face.

  18. It does hurt when you land, 100ft in the air the ground approaches toward you very quickly

    man that looks fun parachuting i mean its auto chuted so it looks fun 😀

    a bit scary to walk off the plane though

    If only such soldiers as these and their counterparts in the other allied countries had political leadership worthy of them. Maybe we should have a selection phase for public officials.

  21. You must realise the soldier rejected i’m sure is a very efficient soldier , however to get in the sas you have to excell at all stages of training.The very very best only get in.

    if youre taller youll be easyer too see , you probably weigh more and there are some vehicles like tanks it would be probably to hard for someone who´s rly tall

  23. SoldierofChrist87 | June 15, 2010 at 3:22 am |

    Whyd they want you to be under 6″ I wonder…?

  24. Feddex123 | June 15, 2010 at 4:13 am |
