Ghost Recon, also known as The Ghosts, formerly known as Delta Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group, is a Tier 1 Joint Special Operations Force of the United States Army.

Like the units under their parent organization; Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the operations conducted by the Ghost Recon are kept highly classified. It is shown that the Ghost teams have multiple designations and the Ghost Recon is commanded and administrated by JSOC, participating in highly classified covert operations.

They are similar to the Army's Intelligence Support Activity and Delta Force, the Navy's DEVGRU, and the Air Force's 24th Special Tactics Squadron.

The modern Department of Defense title for the Ghosts is the Group for Specialized Tactics (GST - where the term “Ghost” derives from) unit.

Ghost teams are often supported by the Special Activities Division's Special Operations Group (SAD/SOG) of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and also sometimes with the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). All Ghost members operate as Advanced Force Operations (AFO) teams.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Members of Alpha Team (2007-2011)

Delta Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group, also known as the Ghosts, is an elite Special Mission Unit within the U.S. Army and JSOC and is located at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. They were formed in 1994 and are a classified special operations unit.

Armed with the state-of-the-art weapon systems and trained in the best field and combat tactics, they are the most specialized and qualified special operations unit that JSOC has to offer. First in and last out because of their experience with striking enemies swiftly, silently and invisibly, hence this unit is known as Ghosts. The Ghost teams specialize in both covert and clandestine operations within denied or politically-sensitive territory with little to no support. Most of their operations before 2011 were in the information security (infosec) between classified to top secret level and were only known by the Chief of Staff, the President and most of all; the CIA, NSA and DIA. Until an American television series; Modern Heroes that aired after 2011, reviewed some those details to the public. At least other sensitive documents about this unit aren't revealed, to prevent anyone knowing too much about the Ghosts.


The primary role of the Ghosts appears to be conducting deniable Advance Force Operations which often involve:

Secondary roles historically have included:


As Special Operations members, they are trained to execute Direct Action raids (focused short-duration attacks). Typical tasks include assassinate or kidnap High-Value Targets (HVTs), secure or destroy sensitive documents and classified hardware, sabotage or harassment of the enemy.


Structure[edit | edit source]

Members of Alpha Team (2013)

When deployed into combat, the Ghosts are usually organized into fire teams of 4 members led by a Ghost Lead. The GST is organized into a company-sized force consisting of approximately 200-250 operators. Scott Mitchell is the commander of the Ghosts. Captain Nick Salvatore, Captain Jennifer Burke, and Captain David Foster command their teams after many years as NCOs with then-Captain Mitchell.

Teams[edit | edit source]

Ghost SF teams are organized into Advanced Force Operations (AFO) units:

Classes available in 2024.

Post-Russian Insurgency, the team was reorganized into the Group for Specialized Tactics and given dedicated logistics support and air support. Also, around that time, the team was reorganized into three classes: Specialist, Assault, and Recon.


Selection[edit | edit source]

Ghosts GRAW.jpg

Only the most elite operators are invited to become Ghosts, having already proved themselves in combat during previous deployments. While all Ghosts serve with a strong sense of honor and duty, they understand their success will never be publicly acknowledged by politicians or broadcast on the evening news.

Phase - I involves selection of potential Ghosts. The candidates are selected from various branches of the U.S. military and some are from different nations as well. They go through a selection phases which involves a physical and mental test. Candidates who pass this test are then qualified for Phase - II.


Training[edit | edit source]

Ongoing training in weapons, tactics, and commands are held at their headquarters in Fort Bragg. Around 2013, they also had access to combat simulators (shown in the Battle Simulator in 2014).

Phase - II involves advanced combat training, language learning and gadget training. Candidates who successfully pass the second phase are commissioned as full fledged Ghosts and are then assigned to either a team on training, a team on standby or a team that is ready for deployment.

Moreover, training emphasizes on team coordination, technology usage, survival, stealth and direct combat with which involves 4 Ghosts as a 4 men+women fireteam against a huge group of hostiles.

Whatever there's a crisis and/or war that threatens the United States and its allies extremely deeply, the Ghosts are available for immediate deployment. Operating out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, they can be deployed anywhere in the world within an 18-hour window. When a helicopter insertion is not an option, the Ghosts are trained to enter hostile territory by other methods, include High Altitude-Low Opening (HALO) jumps and hijacking enemy/ally vehicles.

While the Ghosts are armed with a variety of lethal weapons (from the US military's standard-issue+not standard-issue ones to those not from the nation), they gain their greatest tactical advantage from their state-of-the-art communications and reconnaissance equipment. As eyes on the ground, it's up to them to observe and report while commanders and politicians mull over decisions with potentially dire repercussions. Yet mostly for the commanding officers than politicians.

Each member of the Ghost team is equipped with the latest high-tech weaponry and communications equipment. Many of their gear are designed to be durable, reliable, modular, lightweight and significantly reducing encumbrance. This allows each operator to move through a variety of environments at a speed of their own choosing. Nonetheless some pretty heavy gear and weapons are used by them as well when they are on different vehicles.

Each operator is trained in weaponry ranging from any standard-issue firearms to the latest high-tech prototypes. And when enemies are too close to them to use firearms or they don't want to attract too much attention, they would use different types of combat blades for self defense or stealthy attacks. Whether engaging hostile infantry, armored vehicles, aircraft, watercraft or drones, they are capable of neutralizing a variety of threats.

By utilizing a variety of intel-gathering devices and advanced optics, Ghosts don't have to physically see their enemies to engage them. By deploying Sensors or a UAV Drone, Ghost teams can keep tabs on enemy movements during firefights; enemies are displayed as silhouettes on the Ghosts' heads-up displays (HUD). Night Vision Goggles and metal-detecting optical devices allow the Ghosts to spot enemies through dense smoke, dark environments and even thick pieces of cover.

With the CROSS-COM system deployed by the Ghosts since early 2009 gives each team member the ability to stay in touch with one another and relay crucial intel and targeting information. All data is displayed on an eyepiece, allowing each operative keep their eyes on the action while staying informed. The CROSS-COM system can interface with a number of heavy weapons systems and drones, such as the Warhound drone in 2024.

While the Ghosts have the capability to neutralize any type of infantry and most types of vehicles, they must seek out heavier firepower when it comes to taking out heavily armored main battle tanks and helicopters. When close air support is available, the Ghosts can even take control of guided missiles fired by Allied aircraft.

Frequently outnumbered by hostile forces, Ghosts never rush into a dangerous situation without first observing and planning. If lethal action is necessary, the Ghosts can get the upper hand in most engagements by marking targets and initiating synchronized shots to simultaneously neutralize multiple targets. Best of all, using suppressors can help the Ghosts decrease firearm noises, which makes their shots (include sync shots) hard to be heard by enemies.

Many missions take the Ghosts to urban environments where they must rely on their Close Quarter Combat (CQC) training to safely navigate cramped alleys and streets while avoiding detection and collateral damage. Retrieval of VIPs often requires precise room-clearing techniques, where speed, expert marksmanship, element of surprise and violence of action are leveraged to overwhelm hostile forces. If some missions aren't in urban environments, they would use their previous combat experience, different camouflage pattern uniforms with camo kits and perfected hiding skills to decrease their silhouette from getting discovered by different enemies from all kinds of distances and angles. When Optical Camo are introduced since 2019, these allow the Ghosts to slip through any enemy defenses without firing a shot. Because they are often outnumbered and outgunned, the Ghosts are better off avoiding firefights. But Optical Camo has its limitations functioning only while the operative is moving slowly. During some missions, they also put on camo paint in shades of different colors on their exposed face to suit the environment of that said mission, with skin visible via 3 vertical lines on their mouths, making them look like scary skulls of ghosts. Which fits why their enemies and allies only see them once, then never see anything again.

The Ghosts are revered in the Special Operations community for their composure while under fire. These operators are often sent to extremely dangerous locations controlled by hostile forces intent on keeping their secrets from getting out. When all hell breaks loose, the Ghosts are more than capable of defending themselves and extracting successfully with intel critical in forming policy decisions and future military actions. Yet during some situations they would need support and vehicle extraction from different elements of the US military if they're going be overwhelmed by the enemy force.

Each Ghost team can function in unison under a variety of high-stress situations. Psychological profiles and other personal characteristics are taken into account when forming each team. But no amount of data can predict how each unit will perform under pressure. Compatibility is truly tested on the battlefield, where Ghosts form tight bonds with their teammates.

All in all these factors make them being flexible, well trained, well coordinated, extremely experience, deadly crafty, inhumanly stealthy, physically unseeable, very calm under almost any condition, excellent teamwork skills, etc. Without those factors, these most feared and second to none operators on planet Earth won't be called Ghosts for nothing.

Timeline[edit | edit source]

The missions the Ghosts take can range from anything, from Hostage Rescue to Convoy Escort. They also conducted Lone Wolf sabotage operations.


2002-2010[edit | edit source]

Mitchell around 2007.

The Ghosts were in active service as of August 2002. Several were present at then-Master Sergeant Scott Mitchell's Silver Star medal ceremony.


In 2007, Mitchell joined the Ghosts and led a team during the First Korean war.


Ghosts in Cuban Conflict 2010.

In 2008, the Ghosts were deployed to Georgia as part of peacekeeping operations in the Caucasus. They spearheaded the fight against the Ultranationalists in the 2008 Russian war.


In November 2009, Mitchell led a rescue mission in Waziristan. That year the Ghosts also led peacekeeping forces in the Eritrean war.


The following year, they went to Cuba and Colombia to safeguard elections and root out terrorism.



2011-2020[edit | edit source]

Ghosts during Kazakhstan conflict.

Their next major operation was the Second Korean War. Mitchell again led Alpha Team and hampered the North Korean war efforts. Their fight was documented on the Military Channel's show Modern Heroes after 2011. The episode included interviews with members of Alpha Team.


In 2012, the Ghosts conducted Operation War Wraith in China, along with eliminating Asad Rahil, the coup master in Kazakhstan.


Ghosts in Mexico 2014.

Mitchell also led Alpha Team during the Mexican upheavals, first stopping Ontiveros' coup and then stopping a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) attack during Juan de la Barrera's rebellion.


During this time, they were deployed to Afghanistan solely to eliminate the Taliban leader, Zahed. They encountered extreme difficulties and resistance from inside the US intelligence community.


In 2014, the Ghosts were the subject of a briefing for General Keyes about the future of warfare.


A Ghost Team in Operation Kingslayer.

In 2019, the U.S. government sends in a Ghost team consisting of Nomad (Ghost Lead), Weaver (Sniper), Holt (Recon) and Midas (Specialist) to Bolivia in response to the bombing of the U.S. Embassy in La Paz and the death of undercover DEA Agent Ricky Sandoval. It is in this country that the Mexican Santa Blanca drug cartel has taken control over the local government, turning the country into a lawless narcotic state. The main profits and income of the cartel are by illegal exporting of cocaine, whose production is high in Bolivia. The Ghosts' mission is to down the cartel at all costs before they become too powerful and to break the connection between the cartel and the government in order to remove the cause of destabilization to the country. Another unidentified Ghost operator was sent to uncover Santa Blanca Drug Cartel's secret smuggling boss El Invisible in Operation Narco Road.

Sri Lankan conflict[edit | edit source]

A Ghost Team in Sri Lankan conflict.

In 2020, The Ghost's Alpha Team meet with their government contact Ranjit Hisan, who leads Bravo Team. The Ghosts, acting on intelligence from a CIA contact, strike at the Activists, removing their leader Kumara Fazal. They soon find out that the contact was a double-agent for the Loyalists, and the Ghosts go behind enemy lines to make it seem like the other faction had betrayed the other. The rebels seize President Darsha, so the Ghosts rescue him. Eventually they hunt down the mastermind Sunil Ranga at his home and capture or kill him. They tell Hisan that they were never there and go on to their next assignment.



2021-2025[edit | edit source]

The future of the Ghosts.

In 2021, Mitchell and the Ghosts, along with the Air Force H.A.W.X. Squadron, fought against the Artemis Global Security invasion.


A Ghost team also conducted an amphibious operation in Norway in the near future after the Russians invaded the country. Bravo Team helped the Allies in Moscow and neutralized General Maxim Cherskiy.


The Ghosts during the hunt for a nuclear weapon.

At the same time, a Ghost Lead worked with the H.A.W.X. Squadron during the rescue of David Crenshaw. Then, he worked with the Royal Navy when reclaiming Norway from the Russian ultra-nationalist military as part of a NATO operation, code-named Triton. He continued to work with the squadron during the subsequent retaking of Moscow and the manhunt for Aleksandr Treskayev in the Kremlin. A Ghost Team also intercepted a nuclear warhead while under the protection of the pilot HAWX2.

Ghosts in the Middle-East.

In 2022, the Ghosts were deployed in the Middle-East running counter-terrorism operations.

In 2023, the Ghosts, now known as the Group for Specialized Tactics, also conducted Operation Take Down Overlord in Russia, and a Ghost Lead led a team to Sokolov's base.


Members of Hunter Team.

In 2024, Predator Team led by Master Sergeant Jose Ramirez was killed by the remote detonation of a nuclear warhead after they stopped a convoy transporting it in Nicaragua. Then, Mitchell decided to launch an investigation into their deaths by having Hunter Team led by Captain Cedric Ferguson to follow possible leads. The team was deployed to Bolivia, Zambia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Georgian border and Russia during the time of the Raven's Rock coup and discovered that Raven's Rock was responsible for killing Predator Team, Hunter then tracked down their leaders and eliminated all of them in Russia.


Later on, members of Hunter Team also helped track down a rogue CIA agent. At one point, the Ghosts assisted a rebellion in Nicaragua against President Raphael Rivera.


Ghosts in Operation: Greenstone.

In 2025, the Ghosts conducted Operation Greenstone, as they are deployed for a reconnaissance mission at Skell Tech's new headquarters in Auroa after the U.S. government loses contact with the island and the company's CEO Jace Skell. Four teams of 32 Ghosts were taken out by drone swarms even before they could be deployed for the operation. Most of the Ghosts, other than Nomad, Holt, Midas, Fury, Vasily, Fixit and 2 male Ghosts were killed in action in an attack by the Wolves, a group of rogue military specialists and former Ghosts, led by former Ghost and Nomad's ex-brother-in-arms Walker.

After surviving the attack, the Ghosts find out that the Wolves have not only taken over the island's security and hired a private military contractor, Sentinel, to guard it, but they have also taken over the automated drone production facilities.


The Ghosts now not only have to complete the operation without support, but also at the same time, they have to survive and take down the Wolves. Nomad successfully managed to take out Walker who was hiding at his base of operations. Concurrently, the unit was deactivated by the Joint Chiefs of Staff following Walker and other Ghosts going rogue sometime after 2022. Later on, at the request of Mitchell, the unit was reintroduced as Group for Specialized Tactics.


Ghosts fighting the Phantoms.

20 years into the future, the Ghosts were caught in a conflict with ex-Ghosts and other military operatives known as the Phantoms. Their first encounter was during a theft of ATHENA Corp. Information in Taiwan. After capturing an operative, they are led into a trap in Pakistan, but win the skirmish. When following up on the intelligence, Yankee team was captured by Omega Company.



Alternate Future (World War III)[edit | edit source]

In an alternate future of 2020, The Ghosts continued their operations during World War III.


The Ghosts also fought in England and Dubai during the hunt for the “Snow Maiden.” Three teams were on the ground during the Russian invasion of Poland and they were saved by a Joint Strike Force gunship pilot. After the brainwashed Major Alice Dennison disappeared, General Mitchell deployed Ghost teams to look for her. Mitchell himself oversaw the assault on the Spetsnaz headquarters at Fort Levski.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ghosts are being considered not just the best Green Berets, but also the cream of the crop of the U.S. Special Operations Forces operators in the nation and the world. Yet, there is no evidence they are also specialized in Air Traffic Control like the Air Force Combat Control Team (CCTs; AKA Combat Controller) and are able to report weather conditions like the Air Force Special Reconnaissance (formerly Special Operations Weather Teams).
  • “Ghost: In traditional belief, a ghost is a manifestation of the dead. They remain in the physical realm to avenge, help, or punish the living.” — Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Prologue
  • The GST (2024s) has an extremely effective cyber operations team as proven by their ability to hack almost any electronic lock on the planet remotely.
  • From what Mitchell said about the deaths of Ramirez and his team, the GST has never lost four people simultaneously, which speaks a lot about the survival rate of each operator. However, with the events of Operation Greenstone, the survival rate might have changed dramatically.
  • The multiplayer classes in Future Soldier are Rifleman, Engineer, and Scout.
  • Andrew Ross, Nick Salvatore, Weaver and Fury are the only 4 personnel within Ghost Recon that were in another branch of the U.S. Armed Forces prior to the Army transition, with Ross, Weaver and Fury being part of the Navy SEALs (Weaver and Fury specifically hailing from DEVGRU) and Salvatore being part of the Marine Corps Force Recon prior to the Ghosts.
  • The Ghosts of Delta Company are entirely fictional, as SF battalions currently only support three companies (A, B and C).
