    Mission Statement

    We are a Squad clan based out of North America that uses tactics, planning, coordination, cooperation and communication to succeed in matches. Through our experience, we come together to learn and grow as better players, creating a fun and welcoming, yet serious and mature environment for everyone who is eager to join. We want to strive to be our best, but not necessarily be the best. However, we do want to be known as one of the most respected clans within the Squad community. So join the pack, and become a force!


    History of The Name

    Our name (Task Force 88) comes from an American special operations unit that was formed in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks with support of the United Kingdom special forces, specifically charged with hunting down high-value al-Qaeda and Iraqi leadership including Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It is described as a "hunter-killer team" with its core made up of operators from 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment - Delta Force, United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group ('DEVGRU'), British Special Air Service, British Special Boat Service and soldiers from the 75th Ranger Regiment. Members of the CIA's elite Special Activities Division paramilitary unit were also believed to be an important part of the group. Support elements include the Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Night Stalkers), the Air Force’s 24th Special Tactics Squadron, and British paratroopers from the Special Forces Support Group.

    The task force is known to operate very autonomously. In their only publicly known operation they reportedly conducted several raids without requiring approval from nearby conventional command structures and only requiring it from USSOCOM. The task force was also responsible for the tracking and eventual elimination (by F-16 launched ordnance) of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Over 18 months beginning in early 2007, the task force reportedly arrested 3,500 terrorists in Baghdad and killed several hundred others. Thus, al Qaeda bomb attacks went down from an average of 150 per month (killing monthly 3,000 people) to about two.

    Currently, rumors of a "reformation" of a similar Task Force going by the cover name of "TF Black" have emerged, although most former Special Mission Unit members and insiders believe that since the whole concept of a "Task Force is temporary, hence the term 'Task' Force...as in being tasked with a particular objective", this would be unlikely, regardless of the reports of mainstream media to the contrary. Most of the time, Task Forces such as the original TF Black, cannot technically "be reformed" to hunt ISIL when the creation of a more current and lesser known joint Task Force would make more sense to those inside the Joint Special Operations Command.
