The Reconnaissance Teams (abbreviated as either “RECON”), are one of the STARFLEET Strategic Operations forces that provide pertinent military intelligence to the combined combat elements of the STARFLEET/STARFLEET Marine air-ground task force, either supporting the subordinate infantry units of the STARFLEET Strategic Operations Rangers, SEALS, or Star Fleet Marine Corp strike groups.
They are fully capable of operating independently behind enemy lines conducting deep reconnaissance, direct action (DA), and other supportive arms deemed necessary to the STARFLEET task force. Using combined methods of space, heliborne and waterborne insertions and extractions in cohesion of conventional warfare, they are capable of performing unconventional special operations similar, or to the extent, to those of the STARFLEET Strategic Operations forces, e.g. Rangers and SEALS, although RECON’s missions and tasks do differ by a margin.
It is recommended that the individual wishing to join the Recon, take classes from the following SFA Schools: Camouflage, Defensive Tactics, Rappelling, Deployment Methods, Reconnaissance, Survival, Resistance & Evasion, and Terrain Analysis.
