    No worries David!

    I know there has been a longstanding forum thread about Fireforce(and a heated discussion about it's applicability or lack of it in recent conflicts), but in some of Stiff's books(See you in November and Selous Scouts: Top Secret War) I reckon if you update them for the Bladerunner world we seem to be living, and focus on Title 50 over Title 10, it doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to see potential applicability to today and the near future with the right approach.

    It's probably already been happening, but I think the history of external operations in the Rhodesian/Zimbabwean Bush War provide the best available window into possibilities regarding recent/current/near future operations.

    Although Jonathan Pittaway's SAS and Selous Scouts books can now only be found on the secondary market at sometimes exceptionally high prices.

    I managed to secure copies and they are VERY good.
