"Welcome to the 141. Best handpicked group of warriors on the planet."
— General Shepherd to Private First Class Joseph Allen.

Task Force 141, colloquially referred to as "The One-Four-One," is a multinational special operations force composed of members of British, Australian, American, Canadian and possibly other foreign personnel, usually those with previous Special Ops experience. Its members serve as the principal protagonists of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, in which their main objective is to apprehend or eliminate Vladimir Makarov, a Russian Ultranationalist responsible for masterminding a Russian invasion of the United States. In 2016, its members participated in notable special operations in Kazakhstan, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, a Gulag and a submarine base in the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Georgian-Russian border, and Afghanistan.

Notably during August 16th, General Shepherd betrayed Task Force 141; subsequently all the remaining members of Task Force 141 were either eliminated or on the run at the conclusion of the crisis. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the survivors united with Russian Loyalists to continue with their main objective.

CompositionEdit

Task Force 141's operators are drawn from the special operations forces of Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. The specific units that contribute operators to Task Force 141 are unknown. However, it is likely that operatives are drawn from the various units that belong to USSOCOM, UKSF, CANSOFCOM and SOCOMD. This is supported by the fact that PFC Joseph Allen was recruited from the U.S Army Rangers and the fact that operatives with special abilities such as the CJIRU would be required for a unit like the 141 to operate to it's fullest.

During the events of Modern Warfare 2, the commanding officer of Task Force 141 appears to be Shepherd, a U.S. Army officer who spearheads the Task Force's operations. Additionally, British soldiers of the Special Air Service (and possibly Special Boat Service) such as Captain John "Soap" MacTavish, Lieutenant Simon "Ghost" Riley  and sergeant Gary "Roach"  Sanderson serve as operators during field missions. After his liberation from a gulag, Captain John Price of the Special Air Service also apparently serves as a field commander.

Task Force 141 has at least eighty-five known members, leading to speculation that it is a company-sized formation.

DisavowedEdit

Task Force 141 Disavowed

After the events of Modern Warfare 2, a rogue Lt. Gen. Shepherd was killed in action by Cpt. John "Soap" MacTavish and the Task Force 141 was disavowed. However, a few Task Force 141 operatives, such as Price & Soap continued to operate with support from current Baseplate operative and former colleague of Price, MacMillan. When the Task Force 141 reunited, they joined forces with Nikolai and his Russian Loyalists. Their primary objective remained to exterminate the highly notorious terrorist Vladimir Makarov, which in doing so, would clear their names.

Names ClearedEdit

After rescuing Russian President Boris Vorshevsky and his daughter Alena, Task Force 141 was re-instated (signified by the Disavowed status on the Task Force 141 emblem being removed) by NATO, and even Russia itself approve their actions for rescuing the president and they began to concentrate their efforts to hunt down Makarov once again, eventually locating him and killing him three months later in the United Arab Emirates.

Trivia Edit

  • While the British, Americans, and Australians have their flags in their colors and on their shoulder patches, the Canadians have their flag on their back in green.
    • There are no Canadian Task Force 141 models in multiplayer despite models being in the campaign.
  • Choosing an LMG in multiplayer will make the player spawn with an Australian flag, choosing an SMG or an Assault Rifle will make the player generate with a British or American flag, and choosing a Sniper Rifle will make the player spawn with an American flag, unless the player has unlocked the Ghillie Suit.
  • Task Force 141 (along with the Heartbeat Sensor) is jokingly referenced in a conversation between two characters in the 2010 video game Battlefield: Bad Company 2. After discovering the team has to go on a hunt for an HVT, Sarge says, "I should clear this with Braidwood," to which Sweetwater replies, "No! No, no, no! He'll just send some special ops douche-bags, with pussy-ass heartbeat monitors on their guns, instead of us!"
  • The full Task Force 141 theme tune is played during the mission "Contingency".
  • In Modern Warfare 3, some Delta Squad soldiers have the same name as many of the Task Force members.
  • By the end of Modern Warfare 3, Price and Nikolai are the last known remaining Task Force 141 members.
  • In Modern Warfare 3, the old and new Task Force 141 logo can be unlocked in Multiplayer.
  • The old Task Force 141 emblem is seen in Perk Care Packages from Survival Mode.
  • Task Force 141 is referenced in Far Cry 3. During the level "Fly South", Willis says that he must join Task Force 141 to go to Russia.[1]
