Luneryha Special Forces.

The Federation of Luneryha Special Tactics and Reconnaissance, commonly known as STR, Spectre or The Spectres, is Luneryha's primary special operations force and a component of the Special Warfare Command. Among the Spectre's main functions are conducting small-unit special operation missions in maritime, jungle, urban, arctic, mountainous, and desert environments. Spectresare primarily tasked with capturing or if necessary, eliminating high level targets, or gathering intelligence behind enemy lines for future military actions. During peacetime they focus on the anti-terrorism operations, in wartime they focus on special operations. When deployed into combat, the Spectres are usually organized into fire teams of four members led by a Spectre Lead. The STR is organized into a company-sized force consisting of approximately 200-250 operators, both man and woman.

To become a Spectre (regardless of whether it is a man or a woman) the applicant must be a soldier with at least 3 years on active duty, and before getting accepted into STR training, a prospective candidate must pass a certain number of both mental and physical requirements: 500 yard swim in 12:30, 50 push-ups in 2 minutes, 50 sit-ups in 2 minutes, 10 consecutive pull-ups in 2 minutes, and a 1.5 mile run in 10:30. Candidates receiving a passing score may then be admitted into training to become Spectres. Once in training they have to go through an 8-month test where they will be tested in survival, diving, demolitions and breaching, parachute jump.

Clothing and weaponry are at the preference of the Operator, but the most common rifle is the HK416, and the pistol is the P226.
