This article is about Mosquito Stinger Force. You may be looking for Militaires Sans Frontières.

Mosquito Stinger Force was a Private Force created by former Militaires Sans Frontières member Mosquito as part of the plan to exact revenge against his former military commander Big Boss

History

Formed by Mosquito sometime after the destruction the original Mother Base. In 1984, the new MSF learned of Big Boss' return, and executed a brazen assault on the R&D Platform of Diamond Dogs' Mother Base in an act of revenge. MSF successfully took hostages on the platform and even set up a command post communication system. After securing the platform, MSF threatened to kill the hostages if Diamond Dogs attacked or otherwise retaliated.

Ultimately, Mosquito was overpowered on top of the R&D Platform's main building, and after being incapacitated, the rest of MSF's invading squad dropped their weapons and surrendered. The remnants of the PF attempted to rebuild the organization.

Sometime afterwards,[1] Diamond Dogs discovered Mosquito Stinger Force's FOB, took it over, and proceeded to end the PF for good.

Personnel

There were at least 276 members in the group,[2] 154 of which were for their Security Team, with 22 soldiers for each of the security teams on the various struts of their FOB, 10 on second deck, and 12 on the first deck. Overall, there were 27 A-rank soldiers, 43 B-rank soldiers, 58 C-rank soldiers, 48 D-rank soldiers, and 100 E-rank soldiers.[2]

Base Facilities

Mosquito Stinger Force had erected an offshore Forward Operating Base similar to Diamond Dogs', located at the Central Indian Ridge.[3] Each platform on MSF's FOB had two struts where resources and mounted weapons were stationed.[2] On the outer struts, ten soldiers were posted on patrol and the inner platforms housed twelve patrolling soldiers.

Resources

Mosquito Stinger Force had seven pre-processed resource shipping containers, one for fuel resources, one for biological material, one for common metals, two for minor metals, and two for precious metals.[2]

Overall, they had access to 1720 Fuel Resources, 1400 Biological Material, 1400 Common Metals, 1300 Minor Metals, and 150 Precious Metals,[2] with the specific FOB platforms carrying a varying amount of each:

Command:

  • Fuel Resources x1500 (one yellow)[2]
  • Biological Material x750 (one white)[2]
  • Common Metals x750 (one white)[2]

Uniform

Mosquito soldier

Two members of the assault team that attacked Mother Base in 1984.

Invading Forces

Stationed Forces

  • Fulton harness
  • Tiger Stripe combat fatigues (Mosquito Stinger Force patch on the right shoulder)

Equipment

The force sent to overtake Diamond Dogs' R&D Platform were equipped with standard AM-MRS-4 assault rifles. Many of the stationed forces had suppressed AM-MRS-4 assault rifles, with the occasional soldier wielding a ALM 48 machine gun. The security forces stationed on their FOB were equipped with grade 2 AM-MRS-4 assault rifles.[2]

Emplaced weaponry

Aside from any emplaced weapons hijacked by the Mosquito Strike Force members on the R&D Platform during their attack on Mother Base, the group also had access to 35 emplaced weapons on their FOB, five for each platform, all congregated on the first deck.[2] Emplaced weapons mainly included anti-aircraft guns and mortars.

The Mosquito Stinger Force's logo when undergoing the attack on Mother Base utilized the MSF logo, in reference to their commander's former ties to the organization and his desire for revenge against Big Boss for his perceived role in MSF's destruction. While on their FOB, it was instead a pointed shield-shaped patch, depicted as a jagged mosquito with red eyes and one clawed muscular arm, as well as the words "Mosquito" on top and "Stinger Force" at the bottom written in a curve, the former being in a larger font than the latter. Fittingly for an organization deliberately modeled after the Militaires Sans Frontieres, the initials spelled out the same as the aforementioned organization.

Behind the scenes

The Mosquito Stinger Force is a Private Force introduced in Mission 22 of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, though the PF is never officially named in the game's story. Its name and insignia were revealed during a worldwide FOB event entitled Mosquito's Legacy where players could infiltrate the private force's own FOB. The event was initially released between October 5 and October 20, but it was later reissued on November 10 in commemoration of the release of the Version 1.06 patch with some modifications (namely, there are seven platforms in this version). In the former, the player can win 6 A+ level staff for the relevant unit for each platform completed, as well as 1 S++ level staff member for the first and last platforms completed (2 S+ total), and any repeats only net the player with the standard 6, while the latter has the player gaining [S+ Staff] x2 for the first and last platforms infiltrated (four S+ staff total) as well as [A++ Staff] x3 for the corresponding unit for each platform completed in-between (as well as the standard reward for any repeats). Originally, the second version was to end on November 17, but it was extended a full week. The event was rereleased again on January 5, 2016 up to maintenance time on January 12, 2015, which included the following differences:

  • The overall extractable materials on the FOB have been changed to the following:
    • 12000x Fuel Resources
    • 10500x Biological Material
    • 10500x Common Metals
    • 10000x Minor Metals
    • 2250x Precious Metals
  • Owing to the change of overall material total listed above, the platforms have the following amount of extractable raw resources:
    • Base Development Platform:
      • 4 Fuel Resource containers (12000x Fuel Resources; specifically three yellow containers and one red container)
      • 3 Biological Material containers (10500x Biological Material; specifically two yellow containers and one red container)
      • 3 Common Metal containers (10500x Common Metals; specifically two yellow containers and one red container)
      • 5 Minor Metal containers (10000x Minor Metals; specifically two yellow containers, two red containers, and one white container)
      • 7 Precious Metal containers (2250x Precious Metals; specifically one white container, two yellow containers, and four red containers)
    • All other Platforms [Command, Combat, R&D, Support, Intel, Medical]
      • 2 Fuel Resource containers (8250x Fuel Resources; specifically one white container and one red container)
      • 2 Biological Material containers (2250x Biological Materials; specifically one white container and one yellow container)

  • Owing to the implementation of Event Points starting with the FOB Event Mission Freedom from Oppression, there are now mission tasks to complete that award varying EPs, which include the following:
    • Neutralized 1 security guards with sniper rifles (150 Event Points)
    • Defeated security guards via headshot at a range of [60]m or more (300 Event Points)
    • Neutralized 3 security guards with handguns (540 Event Points)

    • Infiltration Successful (1300 Event Points)
    • Infiltration Successful: Within 300 seconds (1800 Event Points)
    • Infiltration Successful: No kills, no alerts (2000 Event Points)
  • Also owing to the implementation of Event Points, the standard rewards for completing an FOB have been modified to include issuing Event Points, with 1000 being issued for completing a platform on the first try, and 100 for each successive completion per platform.
  • As a result of Event Points' implementation, the player can now obtain various rewards for a set price, which include the following:
    • [S++ Staff] (can be received up to 1 times by exchanging Event Points)
      • 4 [S++ Staff] for Combat Unit (88650)

  • The overall total of the GMP, materials, and personnel rewarded for completing an FOB was altered.
  • The FOB is now located in the North Pacific Ocean rather than the Central Indian Ridge.

It was later rereleased on March 8-14. Overall, it was the same, with the difference being that the mission tasks are now the following:

  • Defeated security guard by 60 m or more (300 Event Points)
  • Neutralized 3 security guards with sniper rifle (540 Event Points)
  • Neutralized 8 security guards (1010 Event Points)
  • Infiltration successful (1300 Event Points)
  • Infiltration successful dressed in combat fatigue (1500 Event Points)
  • Infiltration successful within 300 sec (1800 Event Points)
  • Infiltration successful no kills no alerts (2000 Event Points)

In addition, the prizes were also different, with it being composed of Base Color 001, as well as Weapons Colors 002, 009, and 022, as well as the Tselinoyarsk uniform and the Quiet emblem. Also, the amount of staff for S++ and S+ ranks have changed, and in the case of the latter, the price had dropped.

It was released again on April 5-22. It was the same overall as the first event, with the following differences:

  • There is no emblem released for the event at all.
  • The nameplate this time around was for Miller instead of D-Horse.
  • The Mirazh-71 grenade launcher blueprint was released mid-way through the event.
"A former comrade, Mosquito, once plotted to take over Mother Base in his mad pursuit to exact revenge on Big Boss. The stronghold of the PF he commanded has been located. There, remnants of Mosquito's PF are attempting to rebuild the organization. Make sure this does not happen. Infiltrate the enemy platform, and make it to the core."
―Mosquito's Legacy mission briefing in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Originally, the Mosquito Stinger Force's FOB, alongside No Alert's FOB and the three FOBs belonging to Kill Count, were designated as being in the Central Indian Ridge. Eventually, Mosquito Stinger Force's FOB was listed as being on the North Pacific Ocean.

Mosquito Stinger Force's initials being MSF is a clear reference to the fact that Mosquito was a former Militaires Sans Frontières soldier.

The exact size of their forces depends on the current size of the R&D Platform by the time the player takes the mission. Eight for each platform, plus Mosquito himself. Similarly, how many hostages they take also depends on the R&D Platform's current size. If the player has a Level 1 R&D Platform, they will only have one hostage. If the player has a Level 2 R&D Platform, it will have two hostages, all on the First Deck in the pit. If the player has a Level 3 R&D Platform or a full-level R&D Platform, they will have six hostages; three on Deck 3 near some shipping containers, and three on Deck 1 in the same area.

Due to a reuse of assets, the assault team that attacks Mother Base in "Mission 22 - Retake the Platform" use the same dirtied Militaires Sans Frontier Soldier model that is used by the Wandering Mother Base Soldiers. In the FOB Event, they use the same models and equipment as any Grade 2 Medium Range Player-made FOB guard.

Despite being an entirely separate Private Force to Diamond Dogs, the MSF soldiers stationed on the PF's FOB have Diamond Dogs unit patches on their left shoulders. This is true of player-made FOBs and as such is considered a non-canon detail.

Notes and references

  1. ^ When the Event FOBs were first released, Event FOBs, and by extension, Mosquito's Legacy, required that the player beat Mission 31: Sahelanthropus, implying that it took place after Skull Face's demise in Afghanistan. After the May 10 update, it was moved to simply requiring the player beating Mission 22: Retake the Platform.
