Lethal trade.
— ICA motto

The International Contract Agency (ICA), also simply known as the Agency, is a global organization of assassins and hitmen. The agency has been involved in operations around the world, including those paid for by elements in the UN, CIA, FBI, NSA, and MI5. While the Agency is officially neutral, they tend to avoid making enemies of powerful agencies such as those they have completed contracts for.

The Agency has a number of highly skilled assassins, such as Agent 47, the product of a human cloning and genetic engineering project, who is a master of stealth, disguise and staging accidents. They also have a number of more overt operations units, trained in military tactics and presumably consisting mostly of former military and intelligence personnel, including highly trained Praetorians. The Agency also includes an all-female group of assassins known as "The Saints", who typically disguise themselves as nuns, but are also trained in overt combat operations.

International Contract Agency: Darkred Darkred Darkred Darkred Darkred

Trident International Security: Blue Blue Blue Blue Blue

Streets of Hope, South Dakota'

"Spread out! Keep and eye out for tangos on the rooftops!", Crystel "Chris" Ario ordered as she led a squad of Trident International Security Mercenaries through the streets of Hope, South Dakota, a small town now in chaos, having been taken over by a paramilitary arm of the International Contract Agency.

Trident and the ICA were in hope for the same reason, the locate and capture a girl named Victoria, a genetically augmented human with enhanced strength, speed and combat abilities. The TIS Mercenaries were authorized to eliminate any enemies they encountered.

As he walked by a stall for the "Hope Food Festival" that was in town until the ICA showed up, a Trident Agent heard a beeping sound. Less than a second later, the proximity mine exploded, the blast killed the Trident merc nearest the device Blue, but their advanced body armor protected the others.

"Merde!", Crystel cursed in French, "It's an ambush!"

The four surviving mercenaries dove for cover as fire poured down from the second floor of a bar down the street, where the ICA agents were holed.

One of the Trident mercs, a man nicknamed "Torch" yelled "Cover me, I'm going to get a grenade in that building."

Chris and two other mercenaries fired their weapons, suppressing the agents in the bar, while "Torch" fired his M203 at the second floor of the bar. The 40mm grenade flew through a window and detonated, killing one of the ICA agents in the building Darkred.

"Dandori!", Chris Ario ordered, "On me, we're taking that bar!. Yoshida, Torch, cover us!"

Torch and Yoshida opened fire on the ICA mercs with their FAMAS assault rifles. One of the ICA agents was struck in the head with a lucky shot and killed Darkred. Chris and Gabriel Dandori advanced, stacking up by the entrance to the bar.

Chris and Gabe both drew a grenade from their belts, tossing them into bar, forcing the ICA agents to dive for cover, giving Yoshida and Torch a chance to advance and stack up with Chris and Dandori.

The four Trident Mercs burst in, only for George Yoshida to fall forward, struck in the chest three times with a burst from and ICA ARX-160 Blue.

He was quickly avenged, however, by Crystel, who fired her AC-556 at the ICA agent behind the bar, hitting him multiple times, the bullets kept going and shattered the bottles of liquor behind him Darkred.

"Room clear!", Chris yelled, "Up the stairs. Dandori, your on point."

Gabe raised his Steyr TMP and advanced up the stairs, and was immediately hit be several .45 ACP rounds. Much to the shock of the ICA agent who fired them, the rounds failed to pierce his advanced body armor. Gabe returned fire, the first round striking the agent's body armor, but the third hitting the head and killing him. Darkred

The final ICA agent raised his M4 carbine over an upturned pool table, preparing to take aim at the Trident squad. Unfortunately for him, it was too late. He was struck by fire from Dandori's TMP and Torch's FAMAS, killing him instantly. Darkred

"CLEAR!", Chris yelled, before activating the built in radio in the helmet of her armor.

"Command, this is Agent Ario", Chris said, "We have encountered greater resistance than expected. Renaurd and Yoshida are down, possibly KIA. Requesting retrieval team and reinforcements. LZ at central intersection in Hope, near a two-story brick structure housing a bar."

"We read you, Ario. Evac helicopters are en route. We have received word that the target is no longer in South Dakota, but rather was transported by helicopter to the private penthouse of Dexter Industries CEO Blake Dexter in Chicago."

WINNER: Trident International Security

Expert's Opinion[]

The experts believed Trident would secure a victory in this battle of the mercenaries because of their greater levels of combat experience, as well as their superior body armor, which covered the entire body and looked like it would stop at least pistol-caliber rounds. This, along with the built in optics gave Trident a great advantage.
