Age: 38
Service Branch: United States Air Force
Rank/Grade: Lt. Col.
Weapon of Choice:
Languages: English, German, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese
Personal Equipment: The "keys" to the Tau Gunship, which is actually a wrist mounted device capable of a cybernetic uplink to the gunship from anywhere in the world. It's DNA locked so only Baughman himself can use the device. It can also tell the time.

Height: 5'10"
Hair: Dark Brown

Background: Went to the Air Force Academy when he was 17 where he received his jump wings, graduated at 21. He's a certified fixed wing aircraft pilot, but also received heli training. He served as a pilot for the entirety of his career, starting out as a FAIP but going on to fly the F-22 Raptor. Though he is the highest ranking officer on his team, he is not the most qualified and sticks to flying aircraft and managing support duties. He also toured with Air Force Pararescue for several years, this making Zach a highly qualified medic. He is currently married and has three children.

Personal: Born on January 23, 1994 in Milwaukee Wisconsin, Joseph lived a well-set life in a upper-middle class family in a suburb of Milwaukee. Later, during his time at West Point he met his wife while visiting New York City and they married only a year later. However, upon his graduation at West Point and commissioning as an officer, his wife died in a car crash on way to the ceremony. After the incident, Joseph became emotionally closed-off and was known to be "stone cold" to his men but at the same time made sure they that their well-being was in good condition, often showing out-of-character acts of caring and compassion which would earn him respect from whatever men he lead in the field.

While offered an intelligence position in the army after his tours of duty with the Rangers and Green Berets, Joseph opted to remain in the field and willingly went on to become a member of Delta where he participated in countless operations, all currently classified. After five years with Delta he was approached by the CIA to join the Special Activities Division, which Joseph accepted and underwent S.A.D Operative training. Again, he was fielded in several operations, all currently classified. It should be noted that on record, it is stated that he has served as Green Beret for 13 years as compared to have serving as a Green Beret for 2, in Delta for 5 and as a member of S.A.D for 6, keeping that he has served and is serving other areas of government classified and off the record.

Name: Alexei Smirnov
Age: 27
Service Branch(And country, if you're not from the US military.): Spetsnaz (Elite Russian Special Forces)
Rank/Grade:Лейтенант (Lieutenant)
Weapon of choice: AK-74
Languages: Russian, German, Polish
Appearance(Including height): Brown hair, Brown eyes, 6 foot
Every infantryman in the Soviet Army carries with him a small spade. When he is given the order to halt he immediately lies flat and starts to dig a hole in the ground beside him. In three minutes he will have dug a little trench 15 centimeters deep, in which he can lie stretched out flat, so that bullets can whistle harmlessly over his head. The earth he has dug out forms a breastwork in front and at the side to act as an additional cover. If a tank drives over such a trench the soldier has a 50% chance that it will do him no harm. At any moment the soldier may be ordered to advance again and, shouting at the top of his voice, will rush ahead. If he is not ordered to advance, he digs in deeper and deeper. At first his trench can be used for firing in the lying position. Later it becomes a trench from which to fire in the kneeling position, and later still, when it is 110 centimeters deep, it can be used for firing in the standing position. The earth that has been dug out protects the soldier from bullets and fragments. He makes an embrasure in this breastwork into which he positions the barrel of his gun. In the absence of any further commands he continues to work on his trench. He camouflages it. He starts to dig a trench to connect with his comrades to the left of him. He always digs from right to left, and in a few hours the unit has a trench linking all the riflemen's trenches together. The unit's trenches are linked with the trenches of other units. Dug-outs are built and communication trenches are added at the rear. The trenches are made deeper, covered over, camouflaged and reinforced. Then, suddenly, the order to advance comes again. The soldier emerges, shouting and swearing as loudly as he can.

The infantryman uses the same spade for digging graves for his fallen comrades. If he doesn't have an axe to hand he uses the spade to chop his bread when it is frozen hard as granite. He uses it as a paddle as he floats across wide rivers on a telegraph pole under enemy fire. And when he gets the order to halt, he again builds his impregnable fortress around himself. He knows how to dig the earth efficiently. He builds his fortress exactly as it should be. The spade is not just an instrument for digging: it can also be used for measuring. It is 50 centimeters long. Two spade lengths are a meter. The blade is 15 centimeters wide and 18 centimeters long. With these measurements in mind the soldier can measure anything he wishes.

The infantry spade does not have a folding handle, and this is a very important feature. It has to be a single monolithic object. All three of its edges are as sharp as a knife. It is painted with a green matt paint so as not to reflect the strong sunlight.

The spade is not only a tool and a measure. It is also a guarantee of the steadfastness of the infantry in the most difficult situations. If the infantry have a few hours to dig themselves in, it could take years to get them out of their holes and trenches, whatever modern weapons are used against them.


I am not talking about the infantry but about soldiers belonging to other units, known as spetsnaz. These soldiers never dig trenches; in fact they never take up defensive positions. They either launch a sudden attack on an enemy or, if they meet with resistance or superior enemy forces, they disappear as quickly as they appeared and attack the enemy again where and when the enemy least expects them to appear.

Surprisingly, the spetsnaz soldiers also carry the little infantry spades. Why do they need them? It is practically impossible to describe in words how they use their spades. You really have to see what they do with them. In the hands of a spetsnaz soldier the spade is a terrible noiseless weapon and every member of spetsnaz gets much more training in the use of his spade then does the infantryman. The first thing he has to teach himself is precision: to split little slivers of wood with the edge of the spade or to cut off the neck of a bottle so that the bottle remains whole. He has to learn to love his spade and have faith in its accuracy. To do that he places his hand on the stump of a tree with the fingers spread out and takes a big swing at the stump with his right hand using the edge of the spade. Once he has learns to use the spade well and truly as an axe he is taught more complicated things. The little spade can be used in hand-to-hand fighting against blows from a bayonet, a knife, a fist or another spade. A soldier armed with nothing but the spade is shut in a room without windows along with a mad dog, which makes for an interesting contest. Finally a soldier is taught to throw the spade as accurately as he would use a sword or a battle-axe. It is a wonderful weapon for throwing, a single, well-balanced object, whose 32-centimeter handle acts as a lever for throwing. As it spins in flight it gives the spade accuracy and thrust. It becomes a terrifying weapon. If it lands in a tree it is not so easy to pull out again. Far more serious is it if it hits someone's skull, although spetsnaz members usually do not aim at the enemy's face but at his back. He will rarely see the blade coming, before it lands in the back of his neck or between his shoulder blades, smashing the bones.

The spetsnaz soldier loves his spade. He has more faith in its reliability and accuracy than he has in his Kalashnikov automatic. An interesting psychological detail has been observed in the kind of hand-to-hand confrontations which are the stock in trade of spetsnaz. If a soldier fires at an enemy armed with an automatic, the enemy also shoots at him. But if he doesn't fire at the enemy but throws a spade at him instead, the enemy simply drops his gun and jumps to one side.
