definatly awesome!!!! might end up adding that too my left gaunt
Sep 15, 2009, 7:55 PM - Re: SAS Mando
hmm... yeah I'll be using PART of that technique! I don't want to attach anything directly to my hand, I want the whole rig to be self enclosed in the gaunt, however I think I can figure out a way to do it otherwise... just need to figure out a way to sync 2 blades on opposite sides of the tri-shot.

Hey adonian I think I'm going to use the drawer slide technique like in the video... but I don't want it to be spring loaded, any idea about how to keep it locked into the closed position when not in use?

Sep 17, 2009, 6:28 PM - Re: SAS Mando

as for a literal description... SAS is the British Special Air Service, or in Austrailia and many other former British colonies (SASR) Special Air Service Regiment. They are the Royal Army special operations guys. They are analogous to US Special Forces, while the SBS (Special Boats Squadrons) are the Royal Navy/Royal Marines version, more analogous to SEALs or Marine Force Recon. The SAS also has an elite squad within the elite who specialize in Counter-Terrorism, I can't remember their name off the top of my head but they're equivalent to the US Special Forces Operational Detachment- Delta aka Delta Force or SEAL Team Six aka DevGroup (who call themselves Jedi). That's SAS in a nutshell... I could go on forever.

I didnt know that!
Sep 17, 2009, 7:50 PM - Re: SAS Mando
sometimes I think I know too much... then I realize it only scratches the surface! lol
Sep 17, 2009, 10:36 PM - Re: SAS Mando
The specialist group, are you referring to CRW perhaps? Counter Revolutionary Warfare team. Basically, all the Sabre squadrons (the fighting platoons of the SAS), from time to time, have a team on CRW duty. Always 2 teams, one on standby, one in reserve doing CT training.
As of history things, the SAS started out in the deserts of Africa, in 1942.
Sep 17, 2009, 11:08 PM - Re: SAS Mando
Didn't know they were called CRW... thanks! As for their WWII stint in Africa... yeah I know, just didn't want to give a rediculously long history lesson on here. Had to do one of my thesis papers on the effectiveness of the SAS and other "specialized" organizations in college. Tough guys, all of 'em. Much respect to the SAS guys, that's why I'm making a mando to honor them!
Sep 18, 2009, 12:51 AM - Re: SAS Mando
them and the israeli spec ops guys are probably some of the best in the world...unless you count the russian, but they're maniacs; civilian casualties: expected for them...
Sep 18, 2009, 3:09 AM - Re: SAS Mando
I haven't tried it yet, but I really wanna.
Sep 18, 2009, 1:40 PM - Re: SAS Mando
Sweet. History lesson would have been cool. I've never played any COD because I don't have a gaming system. Course that never stopped me from playing halo i guess, but Halo is a multi person per system friends game, COD isn't.
Anyway thanks for the info!
Sep 18, 2009, 3:50 PM - Re: SAS Mando
lol problem is I'm a military history major... that's what I have a degree in so it'd be a LOOONG history lesson, too long for the forums. They are some bad dudes tho.
Sep 18, 2009, 8:29 PM - Re: SAS Mando
BTW... figured out that I'm proally going to build a modded A280/295 carbine or use some kind of rebuilt M4 carbine to build the rifle, I thought about using a modded P90 or MP5SD but decided the M4 will probably work just as well. Any thoughts?
Sep 18, 2009, 8:31 PM - Re: SAS Mando
You gotta remember i dont know as much about guns as you
Sep 18, 2009, 9:56 PM - Re: SAS Mando
Actually on most systems COD4 has a split screen multiplayer that can support up to 4 players... maybe more but I haven't tried it.
Sep 18, 2009, 10:00 PM - Re: SAS Mando
lol sorry Lev'ika... A280 is the Rebel Endor Rifle, A295 is the Rebel Hoth Rifle (I think I got that right) They're almost identical, but one is built on the WWII German Stg44 whereas the other is built on the American M16. The amazing thing is... they're very hard to tell apart. I want to do something like that maybe... only with a grenade or det launcher of some kind, or use a P90 (I think almost everybody knows the P90) which can be substituted with a Nerf Firefly. I thought about building off of the MP5SD (See the COD screen shot above) but don't think I like that idea as much.

I'm quite the history buff myself, and specifically military history.
IMO, SAS is one (if not THE) of the best SF units out there.
Sep 19, 2009, 12:32 PM - Re: SAS Mando
Yup... I'll agree with that statement... dunno about THE best (really like my US AFSOC guys) but... they are definately top 3 for sure!
Sep 20, 2009, 8:37 PM - Re: SAS Mando
Build off of a p90 or an m4 would be sweet. I've got of of those same nerf guns and have been planning on modding it in a similar way for a good while. Great minds think alike, eh?
Sep 22, 2009, 8:35 PM - Re: SAS Mando
Ok vode I've decided I'm going to have hard pannel mag and sidearm points on the actual thigh armor pannels... so instead of the MOLLE webbing, I'm basically going to make built in mag pouches and holsters on the leg armor. This is going to carry over to my AFSOC mando as well. Also, I'm considering rolling these two mandos into one. Not sure about that yet.
Sep 22, 2009, 8:38 PM - Re: SAS Mando
and what about your old mando that i used for the group sketch? is that one entirely gone?
Sep 22, 2009, 8:49 PM - Re: SAS Mando
lol yeah that one's gone... MOST of it remains tho! lol a lot of the stuff used on that mando is being rolled in to these 2, btw... the SAS mando will wear the Shemagh too, green and black even if the rest of his armor is black and grey.
