Tough Jobs for Tough Troops. There is a violent world on the edge of war - the world of special operations. Small forces penetrate enemy lines to strike critical targets. Teams of experts turn civilians into organized guerrilla armies. Black-masked raiders smash through the windows of an embassy to free hostages. GURPS Special Ops brings this world to roleplaying. All the violent action - and all the planning, organization, and coordination necessary to bring off an operation successfully - are in your hands. GURPS Special Ops also includes: A historical survey of special operations since the 18th century, with reports of actual operations, successful and unsuccessful. Details of the organization, selection, and training of special operations units of France, Germany, Israel, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. A template-based character generation system for quickly creating highly trained special ops troopers. Descriptions and game stats for military weapons and equipment. Terrorists, guerrillas, and enemy soldiers - a catalog of opponents in the dirty war. Hints for organizing a special operations campaign, with down-in-the-dirt realism or Hollywood heroics. Brief national leaders on the latest crisis. . . scheme and sweat to ram a workable plan through the entanglements of bureaucracy. . . face a ruthless enemy at point-blank range with no margin of error. Your life, the lives of others, the interests of the nation you serve. . . all depend on your skills, courage, and judgment.
