Un equipo experto de comandos
Explanation:
The term SAS and the function of this group are little known in S. America, therefore using the term "comandos" I feel is more universally understood, and it is the nearest in function to what this group really does.

un equipo experto del SAS


Explanation:
The SAS (Special Air Service) is a special forces (commando) team from the UK. As such, the name may be left untranslated if desired. If not, Servicio Aéreo Especial (izado) may do the trick.
