What are some of your thoughts on what makes the British SAS one of the most reputable, well-known and some say best assaulters on the planet?

Operation Nimrod is what made them world famous. Just like the (alleged) assasination of OBL made SEAL team 6 world famous.

"Overkill" technique demonstration with two team formations:

1:30. Ryan calling target front, not "CONTACT". Orientating verbally like a target indication.
The way he moved through the door was very aggressive in stature. Off the weak side shoulder, forcefully to open it fully and straight into a fast pace, aiming down sights moving into the room, leaving the corners for the rest (quite like a front-on drill mix run the rabbit). Secondary weapon cover for those linear areas, at least until the point where it looks like the second team can handle themselves. Engages immediate threat, partially sweeping the corner until a threat is seen then takes him too with a triple tap while soft clearing the rest of it. I note that he only sweeps towards the corner until he sees a threat, it is very unlikely for two threats to be in one corner. Basically gets himself into a position within the room for the best arc towards his AOR corners. He keeps moving and dominates to the room centre, over-exposing himself to the doorway left hand side.

Another piece for SAS reputation strengthening.. If your familiar with selection and the CT techniques of the regiment, Read Eric Haney's book "inside delta force" it goes through almost identicle selection process and CT training. mainly due to the time SFOD-D (delta force) was formed, the founding members had 4 of its officers visit the UK and trained with the SAS taking in all their knowledge of training , mentality and CT techniques.
