The Tropas, officially the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, are the armed forces of Cuba featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops, serving under Fidel Castro. Their only appearance in campaign is in "Operation 40", and in multiplayer, the Tropas are featured as a playable faction.

In Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the Tropas make a return only in the campaign mission "Pyrrhic Victory", where they assist the MPLA fight against UNITA and South Africa.

The Tropas also appear as a multiplayer faction in Call of Duty: Online.

The Tropas appear once more in the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's mission End of the Line.

  • The term "Tropas" literally means troops in Spanish and Portuguese.
  • Although the AK-47 is part of the Tropas' insignia in Call of Duty: Black Ops, it is not used by them in that game's campaign; it is, however, used during their appearance in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II campaign. 
  • Oddly, the multiplayer model for the Flak Jacket perk has a hammer and sickle patch on its shoulder.
  • The Hardline model of the Tropas is seen with gloves in first person view, but in third person/Create-a-Class he is bare-handed.
  • One of their quotes, "¡Lanzando granada pegada!" actually translates into "Tossing stuck grenade". A more accurate translation would be "¡Lanzando granada pegajosa!" ("Tossing sticky grenade!").
  • When the Tropas use the Claymore in-game you can hear "Plantando dinamita", but the word "Dinamita" means dynamite as there is no special word in Spanish meaning "Claymore", it should be "Plantando Claymore".
  • In the Wii version, the Tropas' spawn theme sounds different than in other versions.
  • In the campaign mission "Operation 40", Tropas soldiers hold the Skorpion like a handgun.
  • Tropas appear in Black Ops for the DS under the name Cuban Soldiers. However, the Tropas patch can still be seen on some.
  • In Call of Duty Online, the Tropas multiplayer spawn theme is the same as the Delta Force spawn theme from Modern Warfare 3. But their Chinese name are translated to "Shadow Company ".
