The age limit is up to 42 years for staying in the unit, but training and acceptance has to occur at 32 years or 34 years depending on military service. Besides age there are other requirements to fulfil.
Thereof, how many times can you apply for the SAS?
Selection is held twice a year regardless of conditions. Personnel must have a level of prior regular or reserve military experience and for regulars must have at least 39 months of service remaining on completion of selection as well as not exceeding the age of 35.
Is SAS better than Navy SEALs?
British SAS focus on a lot of the same things, minus the maritime operations. A better comparison would be between the SEALs and the Special Boat Service (SBS). SAS does more hostage rescue/CT operations than the SEALs do unless you count a special SEALs department – DEVGRU.
