SAATO was formed with the purpose of carrying out severe, high-priority, and otherwise "black" operations across the galaxy. It is because of these usually volatile operations that no records are kept of their actions.
Alliance Wolverines are elite soldiers and credited by top Alliance brass as being the nest warriors in human history. Their diverse skill sets and incredible physical aptitudes are only increased by the advanced equipment that they have in their arsenal. The Alliance created the Wolverines with the purpose of carrying out critical tasks outside of their jurisdiction without other governments knowing about it. Some operations carried out by the Wolverines includes such things as assassination, sabotage, espionage, kidnapping, torture, false flag attacks, and even genocide.
Alliance Wolverines have access to a large arsenal of experimental weaponry under classified existence. The Systems Alliance developed weapons using geth technology which resulted in the creation of assault rifles with high-precision and high fire rates. All weapons used by Wolverines are capable of shredding through kinetic barriers and armor, leaving targets critically injured if not dead.
