Faction Locations

Main Base : A little encampment in the Nevadean Desert, the place count a few building, an “airstrip” (Enough flat ground to land a big military transport aircraft). The fact that this is a remote location makes the location pretty secure by itself, however the base is planned to be expanded or changed in location. Le Bourguignion leads the element of the N-51 that want to go on mercenary business but Commander sometimes comes by when he needs specific stuff or personnel.

Seattle Outpost : An old warehouse in the Barrens, the location is surrounded by a barbed fence and patrolled by operativea at all times, it hosts the Clandestine Operation part of the Task Force, the place is well organised and not a single square meter is wasted, the place hosts a “helicopter pad” (just enough space to let the helicopter land easily.) The place holds a properly geared medical facility, some “interrogation" rooms and also most of the documentation about the N-51s past, present and future operation. (Paper files only.)


Main Leader Le Bourguinion

Second in Command Commander


The Task Force November 51 was created around the early 2060’s as part of an expansion of the special force by the Foreign Legion, it was volunteer based but some soldiers received invitation to join the unit. Quickly the unit got closer to the DGSE (French CIA) and would serve as a Clandestine Operation unit and would be specialized to operate in remote terrain (jungle, mountain and all that.) Presumably to prepare strike against a variety of target. The unit saw it’s first deployment mid 2060’s; most of the unit were already veteran of such operation (many came from other units) but some were recruited and were just out of special forces training program. The N-51 was a pretty good unit with an average success rate. During the event of the Boston Lockdown the Task Force was deployed in support of the Foreign Legion and runners team to save Angélique Rouge, a french national hero. Heavy casualties followed and after the operation success the N-51 was sent to a base of operation in Nevada to look after some people who could have been linked to Angélique Rouge's presence in Boston. When the Neo-Revolution kicked off, the N-51 was basically stranded from High Command, pissed off by the situation, the officer of the unit decided to break their bond with the French Army and to relocate the base of operation, leaving with a lot of equipment in the process. Commander lead that movement, however, was in the minority when it came to the future of the unit, most of the operative were bored of the whole Clandestine Operation thing and were okay to move to regular mercenary group, Commander took his distance and reached Seattle with the one that were okay with his view. The two sides still stick to the whole N-51 unit concept but they are on the bring of tearing themselves apart. Recently the signature of the N-51 unification treaty led to a reorgnisation of the Task Force where both parties are happy, and with this operational capability of the Task Force is reinforced


The N-51 has ties with Mr Cromwell and some think that they work together sometimes the N-51 being kind of needing weaponery for their operation.

The unit has also ties with the UCAS since Ltn Commander Yennefer Kerrigan struck a deal with them. She would be the potential buyer if any Blood Hawk would come into the N-51 hands.


Saedder-Krupp or more specifically Amrei. The N-51 stole files from the Megacorps and plan on being the first to steal a Blood Hawk from Aztechnology. A Dangerous game indeed.

Current Status

The N-51 deployed the Rempart Branch in Sophocles to help the local with free health care and a local police force.

On the meantime Special Operation Branch are actually working on the prepartion for Operation Hell's Gate as S-K is getting on the Task Force back.

Due to an overconfidence in their action they are greatly overstretch and most of the soldiers are on Long Haul to keep up with the pace.

Health Summary

Bruised The Task Force is actually struggling to keep money balance because of all the things they have to keep working together. Commander is staging a long run big operation while Le Bourguinion try to make some money on regular mercenary contract.

Operational Organisation

Headquarters :

- Capitaine "Le Bourguinion" (Real Name unknown) : Leader of the Task-Force and overseeing the operation of Rempart Branch(Mercenary Group)

- Lieutenant "Commander" (Same issue) : Leader of the Special Operation Branch.

- Major "Mazarin" : Second in command of the Rampart Branch (Replace le Bourguinion at the Nevada headquarters while Seattle situation is settled.)

  • Rempart Branch Organisation :

The Rempart Branch is the part of the N-51 that decided to turn his back to the Special Operation doctrine and to embrace the life of the mercenary. Since discussion with the West Coast Monolith they embraced strict ROE, avoiding civilian casualties and have somehow also embraced the hatred of gangers. They use regular infantry tactics and count on the skills of the hardened veteran (that are still numerous for now) to overcome their opponents. The recruitment to the Rempart Branch is affordable by any combatant with average skill which is going to dilute the potential of the Branch on the long run. (Current Composition between old veteran and new recruit is 90%/10%)

Groupement Nevada led by Major Mazarin : Main base of the N-51 holding location of heavy assets and vehicles. The Groupement Nevada is thirty mercenaries strong and around sixty non combatant personnal (technician, armorer, cook and so on) The mercenaries are orgnised in three squads of ten.

Groupement Seattle led by Le Bourguinion : The Groupement Seattle is located around the old territory of Pump King Jack. The N-51 have the bulk of their forces on the field there to do policing and help the locals. Forty mercenaries are doing regular patrols in area, there is also an higher number of trained medics and the head physician of the N-51 there for now.

  • Special Operation Branch Organisation :

The Special Operation Branch are the "Hardliners" of the N-51 they sticked to the old teaching and are true to the historical leader of the Task-Force, Commander. They do the dirty work (assassination, false flag operation, raid and so on) when it's needed and offer their services in the shadows as well. They have a strict recruitment policy and so far most of the recruit has been captured and offered position to diversify the unit due to their skills. (MCT Prototype Transhuman or PTT from other place are so far the only recruit they had made). They have little regard for civilian life and will avoid bystanders at all costs, thought being trained professional they usually avoid being seen in the first place. They have a huge power of adaptation when it comes to tactics and they use a wide array of gear to prepare the diverse missions they could receive.

Special Group Alpha led by Commander : Only special group in activity so far, theirs is around forty personnel dispatched in several specialised squads, each working on their own objective. Those teams are lead by very capable NCOs and are the cream of the crop of the N-51 troopers. The list goes as is :

-Elite Team (Etrius's Team) (4 operatives) => Currently working on Operation Hell's Gate (Blood Hawk Stealing) / Recon and Sabotage Specialist

-Alpha Squad "Shield" (Led by Sergent-Major Bayard) (10 operatives) => Currently working on reconnaissance in the Barrens (Target is the 162's) / Regular Special Ops Team

-Bravo Squad "Judge" (Led by Sergent-Chef Murat) (10 operatives) => Watching the Seattle Outpost perimeter. (Hank is in that squad) / Specialised in Ambush (Also host of the Jury Protocol and as such the interogator.)

-Charlie Squad "Shadow" (Led by Sergent Shy) (6 Operatives) => Mustering squad and in training. Not combat ready yet). Support Squad

-Delta Squad "Firebat" (Led by Sergent-Chef Louis) (8 Operatives) => Squad in training for further operation in Sophocles. Heavy Weapon & Heavy Armor team.

-Ghost Team 1 (2 operatives) => Designated Sniper Team if need be.

  • Inventory of the Vehicle :

-An heavily retrofited UH-60 Black Hawk (Looking like an UH-80 Ghosthawk from Arma 3) Callsign "Ronin" (Usual Duty : Casevac and Tactical Insertion/Extraction) Currently assigned to the Special Operation Branch.

-An A400M heavy airplane with four turboprop engine and capable of landing and taking off in any flat enough ground. Callsign "Dreamlifter" (Usual Duty : Carrying heavy supplies & vehicle from the Nevada to Seattle. HALO Drop)
