The SAS 'Moment of Contact' Print is recently released: SASHF
Rotary wing aircraft such as the Blackhawk helicopter have enabled this troop sized element to make first contact with the enemy in a remote Afghan village, whilst overhead AH-64 Apache gunships are on stand-by for any unforeseen resistance from the insurgents. The crop that they are patrolling through provides little cover from the enemy’s small arms fire. Time sensitive targeting requires up-to-date intelligence, the element of speed and surprise if it is to be successful.
