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 histoical 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 judgement. Will they be enough?
