The soldiers of the Canadian Special Air Service (SAS) are versatile soldiers who possess a wide variety of skills, including counter-terrorism, hostage-rescue, and operating behind enemy lines. With a history dating back to the 1980s, it may not be the world's oldest special forces unit, but it is still one of the best.
