Rogue Coyote was one of the three major PFs operating in the Angola-Zaire border region in 1984, the other two being Zero Risk Security and Contract Forces of Africa. Of the three, Rogue Coyote was also the smallest. 

Background

Rogue Coyote started out as a group known as the Southern Rhodesia Volunteers. They deployed to fight guerrillas in the Malayan Emergency. Later, Rogue Coyote recruited most of the Rhodesian SAS (which had its origins with the British SAS, specifically the 22 SAS, C Squadron) after the country collapsed in 1979. Other members formerly served with the Selous Scouts and 32 Battalion, as well as the British SAS itself. They're the smallest of the groups operating in the Angola-Zaire border region, but their soldiers were some of the best.

History

Rogue Coyote were known to operate in the eastern regions of the area and were led by "The Major."[1] They were stationed in Munoko Ya Nioka StationNgumba Industrial ZoneKungenga Mine and Bampeve Plantation. It is also implied that Rogue Coyote was the PF that the Mbele Squad platoon leader joined after "selling out" his own unit.[2][3][4] A truck driver belonging to this PF was later reassigned to near the Ngumba Industrial Zone's entrance to do guard duty relating to the experiments going on there, with his predecessor being mentioned as having been killed due to breaching protocol by trying to save the experimented prisoners.

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller: We have a new assignment - eliminate the commander of Rogue Coyote, one of the PFs operating in Africa. The target is simply "the Major" to his men. That's his rank from his army days. Instead of your typical boots-on-the-ground work, he's more of a job broker and a recruiter. And apparently, he also runs a little espionage operation on the side... Which could explain why he's picked up a long list of enemies.

    Kazuhira Miller (tape): Rogue Coyote operates mainly out of Africa these days. Of the three PFs, they're the smallest. However, they scooped up most of the Rhodesian SAS after the country collapsed four years ago. Picture their organization as one big special forces unit. With Rhodesia a British colony, the Rhodesian SAS had its origins 22 SAS, C Squadron. They started out as a group known as the Southern Rhodesia Volunteers, but in '51 they were incorporated into 22 SAS as members of the British Commonwealth, and deployed to fight guerrillas in the Malayan Emergency. Even now, 22 SAS keeps the "C" squadron designation empty in recognition of their service. In a way, you could say the SAS almost makes up the core of Rogue Coyote. Later on, they were bolstered by other talent including former Selous Scouts and 32 Battalion. These guys are direct descendants of some of the best special forces in the world. They won't go down without a fight.

    Ocelot: They're mercenaries belonging to Rogue Coyote. Not so much a corporation as a mixed bag of hired guns working together under a single banner. They cut their teeth in the British and Rhodesian SAS, the Selous Scouts, 32 Battalion... So they've seen plenty of action. Don't take any chances with them.
