Espionage/Special Forces: The Korps Commandotroepen or KCT numbers 20,000 and was formed in 1949 in response to increasing demands for a unit that could operate behind enemy lines. As part of the ever changing 21st century, their main goal is to be able to perform special operations rather than hit and run tactics. They are also instructed in the arts of elite light infantry tactics in the event they are positioned as front line forces. Based in Roosendaal (southwestern Netherlands) and LE CEITO, this facility allows training for all members of the KCT.
Although Canton Rouge operates numerous bases, the one people know the most about is the massive facility called LE CEITO. Located 50 miles north of Marseille in the foothills of the French Alps, LE CEITO is not only a training facility for all branches of the military, but also an assembly area, headquarters, airport, etc. While it can be considered a tempting target for any saboteur or foreign military, LE CEITO is fiercely defended.
To be added as soon as possible.
