The DropBears were Australia's elite military force. Originally, they were the top 32 soldiers in Australia and the first to fight in any battle involving Australia or its Allies. They were founded on April 18, 2008 by members of the Australian Underground (like Zaney) during the Indonesian occupation of Australia.
The name originated from a creature that is native to Australia.

Born from Ashes
After the Indonesia-Australia War, many highly skilled Australian military personnel went into hiding around the world. With the Australian underground in place, this personnel met and then formed the DropBears.
The DropBears fought many battles and were recognised by their US counterparts, this battle was much needed as new recruits who hadn't fought in previous wars were raring to go.
Operation BlackLight was the first operation fully planned and thought out. The objective was to fight for Romania in World War I to gain experience. With activity low in the unit, this war was a much needed boost for morale. With the war paused, and resuming once V1 hits, the Leader of the Dropbears closed Operation BlackLight for reasons that have not been declassified.
