  • The game file name for this player model is "sas".
  • The SAS was not formed to fight terrorism at first; after the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre, the British government turned to SAS to answer the Global Terrorism. The SAS has already developed the counter-revolutionary warfare unit at that time, and they turned this unit into the Counter-Terrorism unit.
  • Previously an obscure regiment, the SAS came to prominence with their dramatic ending of a terrorist siege at the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980, where their zip line assault through the windows was broadcast live on both main British television channels at the time in prime time on a public holiday.
  • Although the selection icon for the SAS in Condition Zero features them in a brown suit, the in-game model is light blue.
  • In Deleted Scenes, most of the levels where the player plays as the SAS are noticeably the hardest and the longest missions of the game.
  • The SAS units in Deleted Scenes speak with an English accent while the ones in Global Offensive speak with a Scottish accent and dialogue.
  • The SAS in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive have 2 types of uniforms according to the in-game files (named "ctm_sas_variate.mdl"). First is the original dark/light blue, while the second one is white camouflage, confirming that they are going to be included on a map in a future update which will have a snow setting.
