September 1st, 2015 - A day the world will Iearn to dread. For the past two decades and some change, the US has been in conflict in the middle east, despite many saying it's a war they don't need to fight. If that's true or not, it doesn't matter now; they're ready to retaliate against the States, and now they've got sufficient forces to do it. A young country, birthed from war - New Arabia, had come to power back in 2013 in the southen regions of Saudi Arabia. With most of their forces being either elite mercenaries or elite extremists, they've gotten control of the Middle East, and formed the Middle Eastern Retaliation Coalition (M.E.R.C). With the nuclear firepower of a multitude of countries in the area, they've threatened the US, and have pushed them into distant borders. They've been at a standstill since then. The government kept the Army and Marines at bay, and that was enough to keep the world calm, but now, things have changed. Reports from Southern Russian military outposts in late 2014 describe a brigade-size attack on each position. The results were catastrophic. Not from deathcount, but what the nameless army took. The Russians had lost 5 of their RT-2PM2 Topol-M ICBMs; that type of power is what started the Cold War, and it's what's starting the Third. Earlier this year, the M.E.R.C took responsibility for the stealing of the weapons, and now, they've declared war on the U.S. What makes it worse is they plan to attack on both East and West border - so Japan's in the mix, too. That's where you all come in. We don't know if they've been able to upgrade or duplicate the missiles, and we need some elite soldiers to find out if they have, and if they have or haven't, you still have orders to take out what they have. In and out, and when you're done, NATO forces will finish the job. We're counting on you; and from now on, you'll be a part of Task Force "Wolf". So, hunt 'em down.
