The year when historians have considered it the starting point of the Cold War, a period of geopolitical tensions between the US and the USSR alongside their allies from the West and the East. From the ashes of the Second World War II comes suspicion from the former Allied countries after fascism was defeated.
The two sides came to intervene in Korea on both sides in 1950 after North Korea invaded the South, backed by Chinese and Soviet support. It lasted until 1953 when an armistice was signed.
In the midst of the war, reports from the field have suggested the presence of a mysterious paramilitary group taking advantage of the war by escalating tensions that nearly forced the US to consider using the atom bomb.
This group was also reported to be spotted in parts of South America, Africa, Europe and Asia, seemingly supporting pro-communist efforts. Although later intelligence briefings also suggested their presence in the East in order to conduct false flag ops and frame the West.
In response to this, the Central Intelligence Agency secretly made plans to establish a multinational unit that would conduct black ops against not only against Communist forces trying to penetrate against non-Communist countries, but also to investigate the activities of the mysterious group. In secret meetings conducted with countries friendly to the US (regardless if they're neutral or not), they recognize the threat the group has to international peace and order since Korea.
Task Force 100 was subsequently created with staff recruited from the various non-communist nations who are willing to bring the fight against Communism and investigate the shadowy group, which was given the codename of Fenrir after a few raids on said group's operations have seized evidence of an insignia of a howling wolf.
The tensions in Vietnam, which eventually led to the Vietnam War, has given Fenrir the opportunity to string both sides in the new battlefield after Washington DC led the charge to help Saigon prevent a pro-Communist insurgency from toppling it, but not without giving the task force severe headaches from what's happening in South Vietnamese politics. There are intelligence reports that Fenrir has plans to conduct psyops in the field.
At the same time, rumors have come to TF100 that Fenrir forces have attempted to conduct secret operations to seize nuclear assets from countries that have such assets in their possession.
The year is 1971. TF100 was tasked to oversee an operation in the DMZ with a report passed to the unit from a mole in the East that a high-ranking official or two may intend to defect with information on a supposed secret Soviet project. No details were made, except that the mole warned that it was serious to warrant the KGB's involvement.
So this is the current interest check/sign up for Task Force 100. The idea is inspired by Phantom Doctrine and Silent Storm (The latter which I played). Anyone who signs up can be a character from a non-communist nation or (maybe) an exile who has beef with the commies...
I guess if peeps like to join, a signup sheet can be done ASAP.
First thing we do is to launch the RP and set it in 1971 and start in the Korean DMZ.

I'd be willing.
Oh and I forgot-when is this set? Cold War? Never mind, I see it now.

Bit of an update.
I'm looking to play this with (combined) at least 4 to 5 persons. We can start small case anyone's showing signs of eagerness.
At what point in the Cold War are we specifically in? That might affect the backstory of the character I have in mind.
EDIT - I see it starts in 1971. Excellent.

So we got Booky and Ninja Goth. Two so far.

Updated OP post to give the RP idea some background, which I should have done when I posted the thing.
