by Rainier on Nov. 10, 2002 @ 3:46 a.m. PST | Filed under News

It is the year 2010: after more than a half-century's worth of military interventions, the United States of America, together with the former Soviet Union, have wearied of their roles as global police. The former world powers are forced to minimise military operations that threaten damage of mammoth proportions upon their domestic political affairs and economies. As a counter-move, more and more nations are recruiting secret, highly specialised mercenary units to carry out specific operations. Wars are no longer determined by state armies but instead by small, powerful units of armed soldiers of fortune. Check out a whopping single new screen and a new wallpaper. Hey, its better than nothing ;)
