CHINESE MOBILE TASK FORCES


Mobile Task Forces (MTFs) are the Foundation's elite teams comprised of experts in various fields, specializing in handling the most difficult, dangerous, absurd and terrifying missions within their range, which average agents and researchers cannot solve. In almost all urgent and dangerous tasks, the Mobile Task Forces represent the absolute hard power of the Foundation.

Within the Foundation's global network of forces, a significant portion of the Mobile Task Forces are led by the Foundation's Chinese branch and are concentrated in China and throughout East Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Western Pacific region. This prominent affiliation and operational scope has led these MTFs to be referred to as "Chinese Mobile Task Forces".

For a more basic introduction to Mobile Task Forces (MTFs), please see the MTF page. For reference, this file contains condensed information of the Chinese MTFs.

FUNCTION

Mobile Task Forces are not equivalent to battlefield soldiers; only some MTFs are tasked with direct combat missions. In fact, as elite operational teams, MTFs have a variety of functions and vary in size and membership depending on mission requirements. The only possible common denominator is that MTFs are generally "operational" in nature, i.e., they accomplish their missions primarily within the range of threats - those who focus on administration and scientific research are generally not MTFs. However, this criterion is actually too vague and almost difficult to consider in practice.

It is important to note that as task-driven operational units, MTFs are usually explicitly tasked with specific directions, such as special operations, espionage infiltration, or archaeological research. The uniqueness of the mission is a reflection of professionalism and a potential criterion for judging the value of an MTF's existence, directly affecting the attention given to the unit within the Foundation.


ORGANIZATION

A standard Mobile Task Force is often divided into three parts: members, captain and commander. In the most common field missions, the captain and members are responsible for field operations, with the captain providing direct command in the field, while the commander stays in the rear, with remote linkage for command and support. Of course, this is only the most common situation, and MTFs with different functions often have different organizational structures.

An MTF may have a stationary position or may be under the jurisdiction of a Site, but as the name "Mobile Task Forces" implies, they often perform mobile missions across regions, and changing operational positions is a common occurrence. When presenting condensed information, it is unnecessary to emphasize the Site an MTF is affiliated to, as this information has only a secondary priority compared to its mission.


NAMING

A Mobile Task Force typically have a designated code in a naming format. In this regard, the Chinese branch has developed a unique naming pattern based on its independence in management.

The most commonly seen naming pattern for Chinese MTFs is called "Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches", which is a two-character phrase consisting of a "Heavenly Stem" and an "Earthly Branch" plus an Arabic numeral. It is worth noting that the words used in the actual case are not limited to the traditional Chinese sexagenary cycle, but are freely coined from Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches, including sixty non-existent words.

An relatively rare one is "Greek letters", i.e. "CN + Greek letter + number". This naming pattern is an obvious reference to the Mother Foundation, and there are also Chinese forces that completely adopt the "Greek letter + number" naming method.

In addition to the two most common naming formats, there are various MTFs with non-standard naming conventions. When handling paperwork about these MTFs, it is especially important to pay attention to the specific rules of their naming.


UPDATES

Creation and deactivation are very common for Mobile Task Forces. Many are formed on an ad hoc basis due to mission requirements, while others may receive decades of training to address specialized issues.

This page is not a comprehensive record of information on Chinese Mobile Task Forces, but rather a compiled, streamlined directory of information on the more prominent MTFs to date and their basic profiles. The contents of this page should not be considered set in stone. If you find any omissions in the contents of the page, or if you need to modify or add MTF-related information (e.g., introduction, logo, etc.), please contact the maintenance staff or senior management of this page to make changes.

This list will be intentionally kept as concise as possible and will not list forces other than MTFs in order to provide a clearer reference and reduce canonical restrictions.
