In that rather silly thread about SAS vs. Delta, GOP asked a question that I was also wondering about as well. As I wouldn't be surprised if you never bother looking in that thread again, I thought I'd repost it here on GOP's behalf (hopefully I won't be offended you at all, GOP, by doing this). Plus I feel it's worth its own thread anyway. So, the question: "Bob, since I know you have alot of experience in this area, what would you say CAG is more suited to, and what would you say the SAS is more suited to? You know I'm certainly not trying to do a "who's better" kind of thing, more less just trying to get your opinion on the differences in focus, command structure, etc and how that effects their effectiveness in certain areas. I know that the SAS seems to put a heavy focus on SR, whereas you typically hear that CAG puts a heavy focus on CQB (that may be totally false though)." and his follow up: "Also, since you are here (ie: this is random ), have you ever performed an op with any CAG guys? Now, I absolutely do not want any specifics, OPSEC violations, PERSEC, etc, and if you can't answer I understand, but I'm just curious if you guys work together much on combat ops." Regards, B.L.
