When the Helghast invaded Vekta in August of 2357, Vekta ISA forces were caught unprepared. Warning of the invasion arrived too late to organize any kind of unified resistance and the Strategic Defense platforms were taken by the Helghast using deep cover agents within the ISA. Although most ISA forces were overwhelmed, the Rapid Reaction Force (RRF), which were small, highly trained units designed to be the first line of defense, were able to hold their own against the Helghast onslaught. Lightly armed and few in numbers compared to the invading forces, the RRF was able to fight off the Helghast until UCN reinforcements arrived to relieve them. Although the RRF succeeded in halting the Helghast advance, it suffered tremendous casualties and was no longer fit for combat and was disbanded.
Recognizing the effectiveness of the RRF, ISA High Command realized that it needed to create units like the RRF: Small, agile, highly trained and able to confront the enemy with little support. With the UCN fleet reinforcing, ISA forces were now able to go on the offensive, which meant that these units would not only have to hold off the enemy defensively: they would also have to take the fight to the enemy itself. This marks not only the beginning of the ISA Special Forces, but the beginning of SRX as well.
High Command would go on to create what were known as Strike Teams. Using what was left of the RRF and the best of the regular ISA forces; Command took these men and with the help of UCN advisors, gave them a crash course in advanced tactics, maneuvers and weaponry. Once finished, the strike teams were given the task of driving the Helghast from Southern Vekta and send them back home. Rico Velasquez led a strike team known as the Hellhounds.
One of these teams was Strike Team Phoenix, also known as the Kamikaze Soldiers due to their ferociousness in combat and willingness to take on the most dangerous situations without hesitation. Led by former RRF Captains GOD and Angel KS would become the most effective strike team in the ISA. They took the fight to the Helghast and never failed. As their accomplishments continued to grow, they decided to drop their official name and use their nickname instead. ISA Command approved and Strike Team Phoenix became Kamikaze Soldiers.
After months of heavy fighting, the Helghast were finally driven off Vekta in January of 2358 and the UCN fleet returned back to Earth. In March, the Vektan Council decided it needed to invade Helghan to make sure that the devastation that took place the previous months never happened again. Against UCN orders which stated that no further offensive actions were to be taken against the Helghast, the Vektan Council decides it needs to invade Helghan to remove the Helghast threat for good. The ISA starts to prepare for this massive undertaking and one of its first priorities are to expand the Strike Team concept to further enhance the fighting capabilities of its fighting forces. With recently promoted Colonel Jan Templar, it officially creates the all-new ISA Special Forces Command on April 16, 2358. To have experience within the ranks, ISASFC integrates all the Strike Teams it created a few months ago into the Special Forces. Officially, all Strike Teams make the switch. Unofficially, all but one team did. High Command had something else in mind for the Kamikaze Soldiers. This marks the beginning of SRX.
Realizing their potential, High Command decided that KS would be the ISA’s special operations unit during combat operations on Helghan. They would do what the Special Forces could not. KS, partnered with the Vektan Intelligence Service (VIS) and the ISA Shadow Marshal program, would begin its transformation from a simple Special Forces unit to a true special operations unit. All recruits came from the former Rapid Reaction Force, former Strike Team members, Vektan Intelligence Service operatives and Shadow Marshals and were admitted only after approval from both High Command and the Intelligence Service. After Special Forces training, KS underwent extensive training by the VIS and the Shadow Marshal program in advanced weapons handling, sabotage, infiltration, search and rescue, assassination, interrogation, kidnapping, reconnaissance, Search and Destroy, Search and Retrieve, demolition, combat medicine, engineering and technology, and covert action among others. All this was done in 5 short, but intense months. On August 17, KS was ready for combat. After preparations were complete and the ISA fleet was ready to go, KS made one last switch. Under the new leadership of “PsychoReaper”, KS decided to pay tribute to its beginnings as a strike team. They would take the fight to the Helghast not as Kamikaze Soldiers, but as the Soldiers of the Risen Phoenix, borrowing parts from its first and current names.
Two days before the ISA fleet took off; KS learned its mission objectives. Their primary mission was to capture or kill key members of the Helghast leadership except for Scolar Visari, who was to be taken alive at all costs Everyone else on their list, from Visari’s daughter to members of the Helghan senate could be eliminated. The goal was to remove these figures to weaken the government and to find the whereabouts of Red Dust, a nuclear weapon stolen from Rayhoven Base when it was taken by the Helghast. The fear was that the Helghast would use Red Dust against Vekta someday and that was unacceptable. Once locating the device, SRX was to secure the weapon and return it to ISA control. They were to also assist the ISA forces in the invasion in any way possible if conditions allowed it. With everything in place, the ISA began Operation Archangel with the launch of the invasion fleet on September 2358.
A year later, the fleet arrives at Helghan and the invasion begins. As ISA forces landed on Helghan and began combat operations, the Soldiers of the Risen Phoenix quietly and secretly left their cruiser and began their mission. After capturing or eliminating most of their targets, one captured Helghast general revealed that the ISA fleet was about to be attacked and revealed the location of Red Dust and its planned detonation. SRX warned the fleet and took off after the device. Unfortunately, it was too late. Scolar Visari, in an attempt to hold off the advancing ISA forces, detonated the device on his own capital city and the fleet was badly damaged, losing a number of cruisers. Failing to secure the device, SRX then attempted to capture Visari at his palace but was met by tough Helghast defenses. Once they arrived at the palace, they found out Visari was dead. Failing its mission, the entire fleet was ordered to retreat but failed when the remaining cruisers were either destroyed by advanced Helghast weaponry or retreated to outer space. After assessing the situation, the remaining SRX members separated from the main force and continued to fight, vowing to complete the rest of their mission. They put out a distress call and as they await their evacuation they continue to do what they do best: take the fight to the enemy and kill Helghast

ok looking for a clan - just dont understand your criteria;
when i first started playing i acted like it was a big killing game and had around a 2/1 k/d ratio. now lately been actually doing what i am suppose to do. and k/d is around 1 - but i am a much better team player who communicates.The role i been playing as of late is tactian. and unless your playing with a good squad - it is easy to get killed alot when your trying to take spawns back from the other team.
So if intrested in giving me a try out you can look at my stats on kz.com - and i have all charachters completly unlocked
