International Index of Mobile Task Forces
rating: +9+x

Mobile Task Forces (MTFs) are elite units comprised of personnel drawn from across the Foundation, and are mobilized to deal with specific threats or situations that sometimes exceed the operational capacity or expertise of regular field personnel. As their name suggests, they may be relocated between facilities or locations as needed. Mobile Task Forces under the command of different branches of the Foundation are listed in the pages linked below.

English-Speaking Mobile Task Forces

The Parent Foundation has a large number of Task Forces deployed worldwide, mostly (but not exclusively) designated with a Greek letter and a number, for example MTF Beta-7 ("Maz Hatters") or MTF Epsilon-6 ("Village Idiots").

Chinese Mobile Task Forces

The Chinese Branch of the Foundation's Mobile Task Forces, when not using the same naming system as the Parent Foundation, are designated with a combination of a Heavenly Stem and an Earthly Branch (used in the traditional Chinese calendar), for example MTF-庚卯-91 ("Phantom of the Opera") or MTF-癸巳-01 ("A Moment Shorter Than Planck Time").

French Mobile Task Forces

The French Branch of the Foundation's Mobile Task Forces are designated using the same system as the Parent Foundation, with a Greek letter and a number, for example MTF Delta-4 ("Safari Time!") or MTF Phi-16 ("The Broken Jars").

Each task force is designated with the appropriate abbreviation plus a Roman numeral.
