Lusophone Mobile Task Forces



The Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is responsible for the administration of the special operations forces of the Lusophone Foundation. Special operations forces are strategic forces especially selected, trained, equipped and organised to use non-conventional (both anomalous, and non-anomalous) tactics, techniques, and systems of combat and intelligence.

Task Forces are managed by the SOCOM, and integrated by assets provided by the Military Command (MICOM).


Task Forces are elite special operations teams employed in tasks related to containment, protection and security, research & development, etc. that require the usage of extremely specialised, and/or non-conventional tactics. Each task force is deliberately structured, and especially provided with the resources necessary for it to properly fulfil its missions.

These forces distinguished themselves from other tactical forces due to the knowledge possessed, and the training received by their operatives, who are especially capacitated — oftentimes pluridisciplinarily — to deal with high-stress situations that require extremely specialised skillsets. As such, task force operatives are selected amongst the officers, and personnel that have distinguished themselves during the training, and selection procedures implemented by the SOCOM.

Task Forces are mobilised to deal with specific threats, or extraordinary situations that exceed the operational capabilities of common forces. Generally speaking, Task Forces are the first teams designated to deal with on-field anomalies, and are also responsible for their initial containment, or their recontainment efforts when necessary.

Regardless of their elite status, Task Forces do not operate without the extensive support of the remaining organs of the Lusophone Foundation, especially those responsible for intelligence, and logistics.

The Lusophone Foundation operates with 2 special types of Task Forces other than Mobile Task Forces:

Stationary Task Forces (STF) operate in situations that require the capabilities but not the mobility of a task force. These forces act on the same level as the MTF, but operate in very specific locations, normally to contain high-risk anomalies. STFs are defined on an as-per-necessity basis, are assigned fewer members, and are granted a laxer level of standardisation.

Applied Task Forces (ATF) are created to operate in extremely specific situations (e.g. Projects) which require above-average expertise but do not necessarily function within the standardised models of MTFs, or STFs (e.g. FTA PT1-Θ, from Project Bulwark).


As suggested by their designation, the principal characteristic of these forces is their mobility; their capability to enact operations throughout a large-scale theatre without delay.

MTFs act on a jurisdictional level through standardised cells, comprised usually of a Battalion (~1000 operatives), that is divided into Companies (~200 operatives), which are stationed throughout Secure Facilities, and regional garrisons in a manner that always enables the formation of Platoons (~36 individuals) in operational teams regardless of the area where they are needed. In special situations, specific detachments (namely Squads) with any number of individuals, may be formed temporarily to complete a mission.

These teams are comprised of variable assets, they have the support of other institutional organs, special equipment (such as armaments, vehicles, tools, etc.), and the support of systems of combat, intelligence & logistics, etc. (both anomalous, and non-anomalous).

Whilst dispatched on the field, MTF operatives are properly integrated undercover, usually as members of emergency services, police forces, federal forces, and the military.


Although all members of a Task Force possess the same basic standard training, and have similar capacities and capabilities, each specific task force is structured independently to properly fulfil their particular necessities, especially by being provided with specialised equipment, and training related to its functions, and missions. Whilst Task Forces oriented towards direct combative actions may be structured similarly to tactical police, or military units, the forces that are oriented towards non-combative action may follow more esoteric structures.

Task Forces comprising expressive detachments of resources may be divided into smaller teams, and troops with their own administrative, and commanding officers, granting them a degree of independence. This also implies that cohesion amongst different teams and units is variable; certain Task Forces may be comprised of personnel with years of engagement experience with different detachments whereas others may be comprised of relatively inexperienced personnel.

This standardised training enables the collaboration between Task Forces whose specialisations may be completely alien to a situation at hand; a specialised Task Force is, therefore, capable of coordinating the Task Force that is out of its element.

E.g. if the MTF responsible for dealing with biological anomalies is met with a situation in which it is currently understaffed to deal with a threat because not all of its operatives are not readily available within the response radius of a specific anomaly, this MTF may request aid, and coordinate with another MTF that is in the area to appropriately deal with the immediate threat.



A Task Force is a distinguished group of operatives whose abilities, and training are employed to efficiently execute operations in complex situations which would hardly be resolved by common forces.

The main function of an MTF is to execute missions in accordance with their abilities; securing, containing, and protecting anomalies; they do not operate without appropriate intel. Although, the only exception to this description is MTF PT01 — "Winged Eyes", which is responsible for the recon & surveillance operations associated with unclassified anomalies, and threats. MTF PT01 is organised only with extremely capacitated operatives as it is the only task force operating without initial intel, and therefore is exposed to several risks whilst on the field.

The ordinary technical, and security teams of the Lusophone Foundation are capable of dealing with routine tasks that have relatively low stress, and complexity; such as maintaining systems that are utilised daily. These detachments will rarely be capable of dealing with an extraordinary situation.

The tactical containment & research teams of the Lusophone Foundation are capable of dealing with complex tasks that have relatively medium stress, and complexity; such as maintaining anomalous systems, and conducting R&D in a controlled environment. These detachments may be capable of dealing with certain extraordinary situations.

The Task Forces of the Lusophone Foundation are capable of dealing with complex tasks that have relatively high stress, and complexity; such as maintaining anomalous systems, conducting R&D in an uncontrolled environment as well as dealing with extremely dangerous/perilous situations. These detachments are certainly capable of dealing with extremely extraordinary situations.


The quantity of resources (human, equipment, materiel, etc.) available to a Task Force is extremely variable; it mostly depends on their specialisation, and operational requirements.

Considering that Task Forces tend to have hundreds of members, the SOCOM usually delegates procurement to special logistics officers within detachments; these officers are responsible for evaluating, and requiring all the resources necessary to keep their detachments operating.

It is quite common for a Task Force to possess the very best, and most advanced equipment available to the Lusophone Foundation. Whenever necessary, Task Forces are employed to test paratechnological resources that may benefit their mission.


Task Forces are, technically, always on the field and operating. The main purpose for their distribution in cells is to be able to station capable operatives throughout the Lusophone Foundation's global jurisdiction in a way that they are capable of efficiently responding to any threat at any moment.

Ordinarily, the MTF PT01 has been assigned with the discovery, identification, and reconnaissance of any possible anomalies, as well as the responsibility for activating the appropriate Task Force to deal with a discovered threat. However, the SOCOM may designate a specific Task Force to fulfil a special task (e.g. invading a hostile environment, infiltrating a specific organisation, etc.). Extraordinarily, personnel that happen to engage with an anomaly, or a situation, may cause the intervention of a Task Force.


Lusophone Task Forces are designated as per the following standard: [TYPE] TASK-FORCE PT[#]-[X] — "[CODENAME]".

In which:

  • [TYPE] — is the specific type of the Task Force: Applied, Stationary, Mobile, etc;
  • [#] — is an algorism from 1 to 99;
  • [X] — is a non-obsolete Greek letter — this field is OPTIONAL;
  • [CODENAME] — is a nom de guerre/codename, or name to the Task Force;



As a general rule, the task forces listed on this page are standardised by the administration, and other users; they are prospective tools for future development, and usage. The current format treats Task Forces as battalions that are omnipresent throughout the Lusophone Foundation's jurisdictional territory; all of them are standardised, and may be utilised in any material as appropriate.
