In early 2030, the second cold war began, between the west as a general whole, and the Republic of China. It spawned several smaller wars, the first and second Kenyan wars, the war in Thailand, The third Gulf war and finally the climactic events across undecided Russia. In 2045, Russia reinstated the Soviet Union, in an initial bid to join Communist China's side of the war against the west, old tensions reigniting from the first Cold War. Eventually in 2053 the new USSR split into two factions, half of Russia and several outlying countries allied to China and the other half, Poland and the Ukraine allied to the west. Most of the events of the second cold war are whispered rumour, conjecture and heresy, but one campaign that makes it's run through the conspiracy websites was the fabled Russian Insurrection. A small team of soldiers 'apparently' infiltrated Eastern Russia, destroyed three bases and sabotaged weapons programs across the country... there was even a film based on the idea a few years ago.

You have been selected for a mission of paramount importance to the war. In Eastern Russia plans to develop weapons of mass destruction have been verified and through vigorous selection processes we have chanced upon your files. You have demonstrated your worth in the [information classified] theatre/s and your commendations speak for themselves. You are to be taken to the British Airforce base outside of Lancaster, there you will board a chopper bound for the border between West and East Russia, there to begin your mission. There are seven targets across Eastern Russia. Good luck.
General Aloysius Durham, US Air Force.
Well, that's it... there is a plot arc, and I have several plot points lined up, so all aboard. :3 Just as a side note, please keep all nationalities realistic, no communist countries por favor... also please keep ranks below Captain, for obvious reasons.

Name: Victoria Chance
Team Position: Team Leader
Appearance: Also has her regimental symbol tattooed on her right bicep as well as a rose on her left hip.
Bio: Victoria Isabella Chance was born in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire to General Samson Chance and Gillian Chance, her father implementing a strict military discipline in the home, allowing Victoria an easy slide into British military life, she joined the Paras, where she quickly attained the rank of Lieutenant before being snapped up by the SAS during standard selection, where she served with distinction, from the first Kenyan theatre, where she took on leadership of the task force after the team leader was lost and single handedly saved the mission and the rest of the regiment. Her quick thinking averted accidental nuclear disaster in Thailand where she was offered the rank of Captain, the highest ranking female in the SAS. She finally proved her worth yet again in the second Kenyan war, taking control of an enemy base with just a single team due to clever tactics. Since then she has served admirably as an SAS tactician before being pulled into the new Russian theatre, where she intends to wrangle a promotion to Major.
Captain Chance is a reserved woman, often cold and aloof at first, though she has a deep respect for her team and will lead with grace and intuition so as to ensure that all of them make it home for their due promotions. Though the current mission is somewhat informal, she will be addressed as Captain... until she knows the team better at least. She speaks with a rather upper class English accent and rarely raises her voice, the tone itself so commanding that often the lowest tones work better than louder ones anyway.
Other notes: Victoria has been trained in advanced driving, piloting and close quarters combat in several disciplines.
