Special Forces soldiers are grouped into 12-man Operational Detachment Alpha teams or ODA's. In this manner they are organized for unconventional warfare, the only unit in the military specifically designed to fight the type of counter-insurgency operations that America finds itself in today. Because of their task organization and inherent decentralization, each ODA has it's own attitude, it's own culture, and it's own way of getting things done.Because of this, ODA's can vary wildly in what day to day life is like. If you are on a Dive Team you will be spending a lot of time in the pool. If you are on a HALO Team you might be spending a lot of time in Dunkin' Donuts eating "body stabilization pills." Okay, that last part is a joke...sort of. You might end up on an ODA full of Crossfit cult members, or a team that likes to roll out on their Harleys during the weekend. Some teams like to go out and get blasted at the bar during downtime. Other teams have family get togethers and barbecues. Still, others will have some combination of the above.Each team has it's own personality. As a member of a small 12-man team, you will experience a unique type of camaraderie.
Task Force Torii is no different. But members of TF Torii are known to meet enemies with razor sharp effectiveness, members are also known to use FN SCAR-H rifles for standard combat while marksmen use Mk.14 MOD 0 battle rifles and machine gunners use Mk.48 MOD 0 machine guns, they also use special weapons such as the XM25 CDTE, the Barrett M107CQ (a short barreled M107) and the SMAW. ODA-0313 members also conducted training in Moscow with Russian Spetsnaz members from Alpha Group meaning that every member is known to meet enemies with near superhuman reflexes (sort of) and are capable of ignoring pain. Members are also very capable medics since they don't leave a single member behind no matter the danger.
Though it may seem it's the same as every ODA when it comes to flexibility, it's not always what it seems. It has the most grueling training and PT session in the Army Special Forces and all of it's members are expected to 110% in their capabilities despite their captain's mildly "rowdy" attitude, one of their marksmen is a bearer of the President's Hundred marksmanship tab, every Sapper or combat engineer is capable of creating an improvised hand grenade comprised of C4 and bits of sharp materials such as nine-inch nails and all of it's members are capable of thinking outside the box and they do their job so well that they are on par with elite Tier One units such as Spetsnaz Alfa Group and the SAS when it comes to skill, precision and most importantly how quickly they move to close in on a target. They do it so quickly that it puts other ODA units to shame. To put it simple, Warfighter's sole purpose in life is to skull stomp terrorists with the utmost violence while being experts in Foreign Internal Defense and Unconventional Warfare making them masters in the art of training, advising, and force multiplying.
All these combined with the best weapons, best gear and the best assets ensure that though TF Torii is merely a Tier 3 unit like the other ODAs it is still a force in the Tier One community they admire and respect for their professionalism, razor-sharp precision and lightning fast pace when seizing a target, and it is the most feared unit among terrorists, rouge nations and rougue organizations alike, a mere utter of the name will send chills down anyone's spine and when they get word that they're coming for them, they panic and leave. Anyone else who decides to fight get's reduced to ribbons from a hail of accurate gunfire.
