The intensity of conflict, insurgency and asymmetric warfare over in recent decades has produced some extremely experienced and capable fighters, who are not part of a formal or recognised military. A less familiar band of PMCs have risen that sell their services in direct combat, mentoring or protection to either the highest bidder, whether that is an insurgency or less scrupulous Nation Sate or simply those whos ideologies align with their own. These PMCs, or Mercenaries draw members from Chechnya, Africa, South America, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and of course, the Middle East. They can be found providing their services in just as diverse combat zones.
These fighters wear civilian clothing and specialise in low profile operations, such as observation, sabotage or assassination. Due to the more nuanced or subtle nature of their work, these fighters are likely to be highly skilled and professionally trained. One fighter has acquired an ultra-compact UZI Pro from the black market where as his companion has a equally compact, but much easier to purchase Škorpion machine pistol.
They could wear covert armour under their jackets and could carry any equipment they need to complete their mission in their backpacks.
These models provide options for interesting scenarios of Spectre Operations, where Insurgent forces can make use of the Covert rules.
