There are many people who do not know, in the Resident Evil plot, the Umbrella Corporation has special teams to perform secret missions in the dark for them.
Often when learning about the Resident Evil plot , people always pay attention to the main game or the main characters Chris, Jill, Leon or Claire because they are much more interesting. Another interesting plot line is the formation and development of the Umbrella Corporation, as well as its side events before the fall.
Umbrella started out as a pharmaceutical company, then turned into a bio-weapons manufacturer. Because of that stealth, in order to have enough financial resources and the military to carry out his illegal projects, Umbrella has organized two special armed groups to perform secret missions.
The first task force that Umbrella established was called the Umbrella Security Service (abbreviated USS), the USS was established in the 1970s and started operating in 1980, this is the episode Team up with mercenaries from around the world, tasked with protecting, recovering, assassinating, or covering up clues to what Umbrella feels dangerous. The first USS victory took place in 1988, when Dr. Oswell E. Spencer (one of Umbrella’s co-founders) ordered the killing of James Marcus to sample the original T-Virus he was studying (the You can read this case more clearly in the Resident Evil 0 plot .)
The reason Umbrella wants to have a private army is mainly because of the issue of secrecy, after they started developing military weapons from the T-Virus and for building many underground research facilities, high-rise leaders. Umbrella’s realizes there is a high chance that they will lose their data. In the Resident Evil plot, it is not clear, but in reality Umbrella has many competitors trying to steal their achievements (Albert Wesker was the earliest).
For this reason, Umbrella needs a force strong enough to protect itself, in order to prevent the issue of intellectual infringement, which is the reason for the birth of USS. Right from the first days, Umbrella had USS fighters train in secret at Rockfort Island military base, in addition to special combat skills, they also had to confront the BOWs themselves. ”To get used to it gradually. With this characteristic, although still considered a mercenary, USS is still relatively loyal to Umbrella, typically Hunk.
The USS also took part in the event at Mount Arklay when the train carrying Umbrella personnel to the old research station was attacked by leeches from Queen Leech, two USS teams were annihilated during the event. But the most significant achievement of USS is still the acquisition of G-Virus in Raccoon City disaster, this is also the place where they suffered the most damage when the whole team Alpha (except for Hunk) was given by monster G board the whole board.
The fate of the USS team ended in 1998 where they were trained as the Rockfort base, during a secret transport mission, the USS soldiers were caught in a major attack, stemming from spies. Umbrella’s opponent. With the exception of Hunk, who miraculously survived, the entire USS squad was destroyed or in gun fights, otherwise it was torn down by zombies, from then on until the collapse of Umbrella Corporation. What traces of USS anymore.
Umbrella’s second task force was formed later than the USS, in the Resident Evil storyline it was named Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (UBCS for short). Basically, UBCS is also a team of mercenaries gathered by Umbrella to perform secret missions, including rescuing employees trapped in a disaster, gathering or destroying important evidence. , protect weak personnel and monitor biological attacks, if necessary.
The difference between UBCS and USS lies in its sophistication and loyalty, unlike USS can be counted as “homegrown” when trained by Umbrella itself, UBCS is a combination of many mercenaries. nouns in advance, with more contract-like tasks. Another point is that the UBCS was born quite late in the early 1990s, when Umbrella began to develop stronger and more violent Hunters, so they needed a force not only elite but also risked enough to be able to supervise them.
The UBCS is intended to be a specialized force to improvise if a biological attack occurs, or more directly to those hot spots to deal with the problem, most of UBCS’s soldiers will be aware of. T-Virus and have the antidote to use directly on the battlefield always. At its peak, the UBCS carried out more than 100 tasks, large and small, divided into 5 units with a one-time army that could mobilize more than 120 people.
Because of the dangerous nature of the mission assigned in the Resident Evil plot, in addition to the title of mercenaries, many UBCS units are a combination of a bunch of thieves, robbers, wanted veterans, dangerous criminals no refuge. Umbrella keeps these madmen in order to put them in the most dangerous areas if needed, despite the possibility that they will fight them back if someone pays a higher price. Loyalty is a rather obscure concept for the UBCS, mainly because the nature of these soldiers was not good at first.
The biggest and most obvious mission of UBCS in the Resident Evil storyline is when they are sent to the Raccoon City disaster, this section is divided into two separate sections, in which a team will be responsible for rescuing Umbrella employees. stuck, while another team watched the Hunter Umbrella “by the way” dropped to experiment.
The fate of most UBCS soldiers in Raccoon is quite tragic, some died just after setting foot on the ground because the zombies were too crowded, the survivors were torn apart into many small groups. In the Resident Evil 3 plot, we can see 3 characters of UBCS, Carlos Oliveira, Mikhail Viktor and Nikolai Zinoviev, about 120 UBCS soldiers were mobilized to Raccoon, less than 10% of these survived. about.
UBCS is destroyed in the Resident Evil plot
After the disaster in Raccoon City, UBCS was almost wiped out because of the terrible damage. Another problem that Umbrella also noticed is that these bastards have no loyalty concept, only at Raccoon they witnessed at least 3 direct betrayal cases, when UBCS captains tried to get Virus samples to escape. separately (Nikolai Zinoviev is the most obvious example).
The mission at Raccoon was also the last mission performed by the UBCS, after which the team disintegrated quickly (mainly because the army was already dead), in addition to some UBCS soldiers like Carlos Oliveira also tries to fight Umbrella but is not mentioned in the Resident Evil plot. From the time of the Raccoon disaster until Umbrella’s disintegration, the USS and UBCS are no longer as powerful as they used to be, which is why Umbrella is gradually getting ahead of its competitors in the biological weapons market.
