United Task Force
Lt Gen Chad P. Franks
MacDill Air Force Base Tampa, U.S.



Background Information
In Southern Argentina, around the Sanagasta Wildlife Reserve, a separatist Movement called the SFIA (Sanagastan Front for an Independent Argentina) has been forming over the past 10 years, initially only seen as a political party, it has now come under scrutiny after inciting a coup toward the standing government, as well as driving government agencies out of the Reserve. Their Leader, Ignazio Diaz, has declared the region and surounding Regions independent and is enforcing a curfew, as well as blocking borders to other municipalities, essentially creating a rogue State. NATO has formed a Task Force, called UNITAF, which is dispatched to capture or kill Ignazio Diaz from his presumed hiding place in the reserve, and has been stationed roughly 10km North of the Reserve in preparation.
