|Branch||Ziridava Security Intelligence Agency|

The SAD/SOG (Special Activities Division/Special Operations Group), also known as Unit 5505, is a division of the Ziridava Security & Intelligence Agency responsible for covert operations and paramilitary operations. The unit is a department within the ZSIA responsible for operations that include high-threat clandestine or covert operations with which the Ziridavan government cannot be overtly associated with. As such, unit members, called Paramilitary Operations Officers and Specialized Skills Officers, do not typically carry any objects or clothing, e.g., military uniforms, that would associate them with the government.
If they are compromised during a mission, the government may deny all knowledge. SOG is considered the most secretive force in the Ziridavan intelligence and military community, with almost all info about the agency being classified. The group often selects current and former service members from existing Ziridavan special operations forces, such as the 73rd Maritime Special Operations Center and Special Operations Forces Command.
Selection and training
The SAD/SOG is equipped with a variety of equipment, consisting of weapons both purchased, captured, and potentially even smuggled. The force is believed to not use any Ziridavan-produced weapons, instead opting to use ones that can be easily found in the area of operations, in order to blend in with any local forces.
