CTU HistoryCreated in 1974, the Spetsnaz are members of Russian units dedicated to counter-terrorism, paramilitary and covert operations. They're tasked with protecting Russia's strategic installations, both domestic and international, though little is known is about the exact nature of their mission.
- The icon used for the Spetsnaz is the logo of Alpha Group. This is supported by the CTU History, as the Alpha Group is created in 1974 in real life.
- All Spetsnaz Operator models feature the letters ФСБ on their back, which stands for the FSB, to which the Alpha Group is a part of. Despite this, many Spetsnaz Operator's models feature MVD equipment.
