Six-Commando is a military unit tasked with upholding the United Nations Alliance mandate in Central Africa.  It is part of the United Nations Alliance Multinational Force in Africa, known by the acronym UNFORA.

UNFORA consists of six Multinational Commands, each with responsibility for supporting and training friendly local forces and UNA members’ national militaries  in a region of the three African Disrecognized Zones, in accordance with UNA Security Council Resolution #882/c-1994.  Each unit is an ad-hoc formation of combat units drawn from several UNA member-states under a unified command structure.  Each such cadre is referred to as a “Commando.”  One-and Two-Commando operate in the West African Disrecognized Zone, with headquarters at Ouagadougou and Dakar, respectively.  Three-and Four-Commando operate in the Ethiopian-Somali Disrecognized Zone, with headquarters at Mogadishu and Addis Ababa.  Five Commando is a Special Forces unit composed of African UNA Members, currently engaged in fighting with UNITA troops in Bechuanaland, and has no permanent headquarters.  Six-Commando is officially headquartered in Kinshasa, and is responsible for supporting 5-Commando’s operations in UNITA-controlled territory.  To this end, it is deployed disparately along the southern regions of the Congolese Disrecognized Zone, and is considerably more dispersed than the other Commandos.

The personnel of 6-Commando are drawn from the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Republic of Quebec, the Republic of Cuba, and a pool of Russian and European exiles, volunteers trained by the U.S. and Canada to serve with the Allied Armed Forces.  The members of the unit include:

Colonel Conrad Haulley


Colonel Haulley is a career soldier with twenty-two years’ experience.  He was trained in the Royal Canadian Marine Corps, and attained the rank of Colonel at the relatively young age of 39.  He has seen action against the FSR in three different campaigns in Southeast Asia, Southern Europe and the Pacific.  At the start of the UNA operations in Africa, he was transferred into the allied armed forces to join the command staff of the UNFORA’s 6-Commando in the Congo.  He is a brusque and businesslike commander, who values discipline and efficiency, and these qualities have made him a superior tactician.

Lt. Colonel Emiliano Zaballa

(Ecuador, CONASUR)

Lt. Colonel Zaballa is an observer from the South American Coalition (CONASUR).  CONASUR is neutral in the confrontation between the United Nations and the Federative Socialist Republic and as a result, he is not officially part of the structure of 6-Commando.  His presence is viewed with particular suspicion by the Russian exiles who form a large part of the unit, as they are aware that CONASUR observers are present with FSR troops as well.  He is nevertheless a skilled officer of thirty years’ experience, mainly in counter-insurgency fighting in the less-cooperative areas of South America.

Major Sarah Bronniford

(Republic of Quebec)

Major Bronniford is one of the youngest command officers in the UNA, a consequence of the fact that Quebec has only a very small military from which to draw command recruits.  She leads a company of “Howlers,” advanced, Quebec-built wing-in ground effect hovercraft, and is a skilled pilot whose command of her troops is based largely upon this fact.  She is fiercely proud of her company and prefers to command from the front lines, but, though audacious, she is not a very practiced officer.

Major Thomas Rucker

(United States)

Major Rucker is a veteran armor commander, transferred to Africa directly from combat in the Turko-Arabian Disrecognized Zone.  He leads a combined battalion of heavy tanks, light tanks and light armored vehicles from the United States and Mexico.  He is an honorable and trustworthy soldier, implicitly trusted by his men, and with a strong loyalty to the ideals of the United Nations.  Unfortunately, he has also seen a great deal of very violent combat, and this has left a serious mark on him that he goes to great lengths to conceal.

Captain Stephen Santelli

(United States)

Captain Santelli, formerly of the United States Marine Corps, is the commander of “A” Company, 4079th Multinational Armored Infantry, a unit of trained Russian exiles with a smaller number of Mexican and American troops as cadre.  Santelli, unlike many other members of 6-Commando, is not at all uncomfortable working with exiles, being concerned mainly with performance over nationality.  In fact, Santelli’s troops function so well and are so loyal to their commander, that they are almost always referred to as “Santelli’s Company,” a designation which makes some other officers jealous.  He is a calculating and ruthlessly efficient soldier who has vowed always to lead from the front lines.

(“Echo” class AAV)

Mike-One-Echo is a fully autonomous armored vehicle, known to UNA soldiers as a “Rumbler.”  Mike was manufactured for the UNA by the Omni-Vehicluar Consortium, a defense systems contractor headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.  Mike became operational at the O.V.C. plant in Iselin, New Jersey on the 12th of January 1992, and has been serving continuously in Africa ever since, first with 2-Commando in the Mali Suppression, and later with 4-Commando in Operation Slipknot.  Though the O.V. Consortium has declared that Rumblers are not sapient, Mike has developed a number of unusual “personality” traits that have caused some to wonder where the limits of his programming actually are.

His class is due to be superseded by the “Victor” class AAV in 1998.  He will be deactivated and sold for scrap.
