The SAS sniper (short for Special Air Service sniper) is the sniper infantry and anti-vehicle infantry unit of the Chimera.[1]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The SAS uses an anti-material sniper rifle to inflict heavy damage on both infantry and vehicles. This makes the SAS a strong early-game unit. This strength, however, is balanced by a relatively high cost, low hit-points, long build time and relatively slow movement speed.

Upgrades[edit | edit source]

Costs Aluminium 750. Researched at the barracks. SAS's sniper rifle fires depleted uranium rounds, which increases the SAS' damage against vehicles.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The SAS unit is based on the real-life British Special Air Service, an elite corps of the British Army, tasked with high-risk roles, including covert reconnaissance, counter-terrorism and hostage rescue.
  • It should be noted that, even though the in-game model and icon suggest otherwise, the SAS is not a stealth unit, and is not silenced either.
