The 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, also known as Delta Force, Delta or Delta Team, is the U.S. Army's elite counter-terrorism/special operations unit. Delta Force appears in Modern Warfare 2: Ghost, Find Makarov: Operation Kingfish, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the player assumes the role of Derek "Frost" Westbrook, a Delta operator, while fighting through the streets of New York, France, and Germany. They are also one of the multiplayer factions with Overlord being their announcer. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019), Alex was a former member before joining the CIA.
