‘Spot The Difference’: Can You Spot The SAS Elite Mountain Troopers In This Photo?

September 21, 2020


The SAS Elite Mountain Troop are almost impossible to spot in their new winter camouflage, composed of white speckled clothing and face masks. The SAS (Special Air Service) is a special forces unit of the British Army, founded in 1941.


This photo shows SAS soldiers patrolling in the snow as they wear their winter camouflage and are barely visible.

Their camouflage gear allows the troops to move through mountain regions and forests in snowy conditions, undetected. Members of the Mountain Troop are some of the best climbers in the world and trained in arctic warfare to survive and fight in extreme conditions.


SAS Mountain troopers can be called on anywhere from the frozen hills in Norway to the mountains in Afghanistan.

Their skills have been required throughout history and include long distance skiing, scaling sheer cliffs, and rock faces to reach areas considered inaccessible by most humans.

The British government and Ministry of Defence do not comment on information and actions regarding the SAS as it is highly classified due to the sensitivity of their operations.
