In a perfect world STRIKE represents fear, omnipotence and fanatical control over the community. In a perfect world STRIKE represents the big brother, lack of freedom and punishment; this however is not a perfect world.
Forged in a world that lacks a vigilant hero presence, as well as a solid human front; The Special Tactics Recon Infiltration Kill Enforcement Team adhere to the motto “For the greater good” More than just a team, they are a family that will defend each other and fight for what is right. They are a group of humans and heroes who know that being a hero is more than just theatrics, they will protect the innocent and fight the evil that plagues these lands.
The Official ground command HQ for
S.T.R.I.K.E. rest in the German Bavarian Alps. It is the Central Command Center for all operations, and serves as the primary training center for all would-be agents.
Having been cleared by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization; to maintain the peace within the NATO protectorate, STRIKE recruits come from across the world to protect and serve. With an area is 1,700 square miles, Fort Acadamia is the largest of all S.T.R.I.K.E establishments providing a 1,500 square mile of restricted air space for Air Defense Missiles. Because the area is so massive, the German populace is welcomed to trek through the unrestricted areas of the base (pending German Citizenship clearance) The Base breaks down into several small areas which assist operations in planning and personnel movement. The Main Office of the Fort is actually an air vessel which will allow the key opertives to flee in time of need.
Hollins Training Complex
Named for Commander Stacy Hollins, The Hollins Training Complex is the initial traning ground for new recruits. At the Hollins Training Complex Recruits learn basic marksman skills, survival skills and rudimentary First Aid Skills.
The primary trainers for new recruits at Hollins are Agents with level 5- 6 Clearance. After recruits have passed the initial phase they are forced into more advanced situations with real-life implications (Such as Spy Missions). In the advanced stage STRIKE Agents are taught how to employ tactics to neutralize a target, how to infiltrate, how to kill and how to enforce the law. They are also taught more complex situations such as neutralizing a threat in the air.
After graduating from the Hollins Training Complex, Agents are given a level 1 clearance and are released to their respective STRIKE post.
Named for Former S.T.R.I.K.E Director Tyrus, The Tyrus airfield is home to over 300 F-22 Raptors, which sole purpose is to protect the area around the Fort. The Tyrus Airfield is also home to STRIKE's air-defense system, which employs powerful deterrant missiles to neutralize aerial threats. The Airfield also serves as a "parking" area for several medical, attack and utility helicopters that normally sit along the STRIKE hellicarrier.
Unlike the Hollins Training Complex, those brought into the Tyrus Airfield are brought in for their expertise in aerodynamics. They airfield are equipped with aircraft mechcanics and technicians that ensure safe flight of all S.T.R.I.K.E pilots.
Cato Outpost is a
STRIKE Blackout site composed of level 10 Agents that specialize in Infiltration and Killing. There tactics are not in accordinance with any STRIKE Law or Decree and most senior leadership have no knowledge of their existence. These STRIKE members have served under a number of regimes and support the entity of STRIKE rather than the "Body" meaning, they often find themselves at odds with their own STRIKE agents. The Agents in Cato Outpost have no clearance level within the actual STRIKE organization, nor are they listed in STRIKE's database. They routinely practice torture interrogation techniques and missions in illegal parts of the world. Cato Outpost Agents will do anything to preseve the STRIKE name.
