The SAS is short for the Special Air Service. This was a special
service unit organized in 1941 by young British officer David Stirling
and showed activity in the desert of North Africa. The only one mission
of the SAS was to weaken the enemy by infiltrating deep through enemy
lines and harassing the rear. It was the Jeep that the SAS used as
their main means of transport. Although inferior to the Chevrolet Truck
in loading capacity, the Jeep with superior cross-country ability was
best suited for the mission of the SAS.
