The Joint Strike Force is a Special Operations Team created by the Unified Empire of Itailia after the attempted assassination of James Roberts at the Grecht-Albertsstein War Memorial Ball. The organization has since then particapated in six missions all of which were completed. Only one member of the Joint Strike Force have been killed in action, James Bondera in Operation Coiled Serpent who was replaced by Dan Tomas. It has seen it's up and downs but currently it consists of three teams consisting of around five to six members each with JSF-1 being the most senior of all the members. General John Lynch is the Commanding Officer of the Joint Strike Force and James Roberts doubles as his Executive Officer aka second in command. The headquarters for the Joint Strike Force are located off the northern coast of Laskar in what is dubbed Fort Tiberius
Operation Black Knight
Following the attempted assassination of James Roberts, the team was set to retrieve James' wife Jacqueline from a merceneary boss code named the Cobra. The team gathered on boats and sailed to the island where the base was said to be on. They flew the remaining part to an area outside the base. Immediately, they faced resistance from snipers.
The team fought their way on until they reached the base. There James Roberts got in an elevator to rescue his wife. When he went down to the prison floor he found her dead. Heinrich, Cobra's right hand man, then surprised James when he was unarmed. It was then revealed that the real James Roberts was actually still in Reformed Britannia with his wife and that the other James Roberts and the wife had been decoys.
James Bondera then came down through the elevator, Heinrich shot James and ran away. Bondera then took Roberts back up the elevator where the rest of the group was still trying to get to Cobra. Barcon and Lynch were then able to capture Cobra's secretary and another mercenary. After Barcon patched the group up they returned home.
Operation Head Count
Operation Head Count started with Lynch revealing that a flight that was sent to attack the nation of Luicinas was shot down. Luicinas was ruled by a tyrannical leader and General Tsarn. The group then got into boats to kill the leader and Tsarn and defeat the army of Luicinas. As they were sailing, JSF-1 got hit by a mine. They landed 5 miles away from the DZ. Roach, Barcon, Lynch, Bondera, and Roberts, the real one on this mission, recovered and left their unconscious teammates on the beach.
JSF-1 then attacked an air base and stole 5 F-4s. They were flying the fighters to the army base when they were met with heavy Anti-Aircraft fire. Bondera's planes was hit and he landed in the forest below. He would later be captured by the enemy army. The fighters then reached the enemy base and destroyed most of the barracks and hangars before landing and assaulting the general. The general escaped and is now in another fortification. After fighting their way into the fortification the team then set out to find Bondera and to kill Tsarn.
Tsarn attempted to escape through and underground tunnel. After boarding an Apache helicopter he and a pilot emerged from an underground hangar. Lynch had expected this and shot the pilot. The Apache then crashed killing Tsarn. Bondera was rescued but had a bomb attached to his chest. After a careful defusing the bomb was removed. The rest of the team, not including Bondera or Barcon, took F-4's and left. A med-evac team was sent for Bondera. Barcon and Bondera were then transported via helicopter to the Itailian Medical Ship where Bondera was put in the ICU.
Operation Coiled Serpent
After the team recovered from the last Operation, they entered the briefing room to discover that Lynch would be absent from this mission. Instead, the mission would be lead by James Roberts. The goal of the mission was to shut down a chemical and biological weapons facility in the woods of Guzekh. The facility was using humans as test subjects and they would need to be rescued.
The crew that took on the mission was James Roberts, James Bondera, James Barcon, Gary 'Roach' Sanderson, Ivan Dalinivich Koslov, and also the newcomers Marcus Livitus and Alice Soap while the rest including Draka Forda and David Cross missed the flight to the woods. The team was dropped off near the facility where they regrouped and trudged towards it in deep snow. The team reached the gate after avoiding the enemy patrol. Alice Soap killed one of the female guards, took her uniform, and used it as her own for infiltration further on.
As the team entered the facility, they split into two groups. One group went to go infiltrate the production room and plant bombs while at the same time hacking the security. The other group went to go rescue some of the subjects. The group faced difficulties getting into the production room and some of the chemicals started to leak out. The guards and scientists at the facility ran, afraid of the chemicals. Meanwhile, the group planted the bombs and hacked into security while the other group successfully rescued the subjects.
As the group tried to escape, however, some of the guards were trying to kill some of the subjects. Bondera went after the subjects to save them while the rest of the group had to leave as they did not have gas masks. Along the way Bondera got shot in the leg and couldn't get out in time. He have his gas mask to one of the subjects and let them leave.
When the subjects were outside the helicopter took out without them. Inside were Roach, Ivan, Marcus, and James Barcon. Ivan and Marcus turned out to be terrorists in disguise, while the real Ivan and Roach had been knocked out in the forest below. Marcus and Ivan jumped out of the helicopter and left a grenade inside to blow it up. The helicopter blew up and in the meantime the facility blew up with Bondera inside. Blackhawks picked the group up as the mourned for their fallen comrade.
Soon, the JSF ran into an array of problems. Some of the members had developed odd alcoholic habits that interfered with missions. Others didn't have the time because of other business. The biggest problem to the JSF was the funding. Up to this point, Itailian Maifias had been in charge of funding the group since John Lynch was a part of it. However, with the Azdun-Rodarion War going on, Itailian Maifias had to cut some of their funding. The JSF was a part of that cut.
Without a form of funding to pay for the gear and soldiers, John Lynch was forced to disband the once great group. All the agents were sent back to their respective countries, and the base was shutdown.
(Operation Vampiric Rescue)
A year after the disbandment of the team, a bomb went off in an airport of Itailian Maifias'. John Lynch was in an elevator at the said airport at the time and was soon announced dead.
A couple weeks later, Mao Marx assembled a team of OCSA agents (Obamacain) to infiltrate Luicinas, who was suspected of the bombing, and extract files regarding to the attack. The leader of these agents was then Colonel Tim Rush. Tim Rush and his team however were stopped when they entered Luicinas' region of Myurt and were attacked by Luicinian soldiers. Half of the group was killed immediately. Rush got his team to one of the buildings that was suspected to have some of the files. However, when there more Luicinian soldiers fought the group and they are currently MIA.
Four days later, Marx started another Operation codenamed Operation Vampiric Rescue. Though he obviously didn't use spell check, the basic idea of the plan was to find all the former JSF agents (plus a few more) and reform them into the JSF. The Operation was headed by Dan Tomas. Tomas was able to find most of the JSF agents and get them back to the base through a series of lies telling them about a peace conference.
After the team made it back to the base they were asked to reform (which they did) and briefed on a mission to extract the same files from Luicinas. Tomas joined the group for the mission.
After the team airdropped into the outskirts of Myurt, the loaded into a stolen truck and drove up to the gates of Myurt. Using a fake ID card, Barcon was able to pass through security. The JSF then drove to a shipping hub where they jumped out, disguising themselves as Luicinian soldiers. They then split in to 2 teams to tackled the 2 buildings. John Lynch commanded Team 2 and Alexei Laiho commanded Team 1.
Team 2 was sent to investigate an abandoned lab. When they went there they found that the lab had been used to test the new Serums, Serum B and Serum T as a mind control program. They then went to the subject rooms to find Smith and Kurik dead, Volks and Knox alive, and Rush brain dead. The group tried to free Rush but he would then proceed to kill himself with pieces of glass next to his chair he was tied to.
Team 1 was sent to a small military building. A meeting was going on in the second floor of the building when the team got there. They proceeded to extract files from the other rooms before they had to go up to the third floor. Once there they tried to silently kill some guards blocking their entrance. The guards would be killed but the noise would alarm the people at the meeting downstairs that rushed to fight the intruders. Team 1 would escape out of the building but the incident would cause Luicinas to go on high alert.
With the mission compromised, the teams were told to run to the docks where a Novan trasnport would pick them up, after they knocked out some radar towers. Team 2 meanwhile was trying to rescue Juan Lopez when they were ambushed by a small group of Luicinians. In the confusion, Barcon was taken by the group and was driven away while more Luicinians came to finish the job.
Team 2 escaped and ran to the docks where they and Team 1 would successfully depart.
