Spetsgruppa "V", often referred to as Vympel (pennant in Russian, originated from Dutch wimpel, and having the same meaning[1]), but also known as KGB Directorate "V" , Vega Group is a Russian Spetsnaz unit, mostly under the command of the FSB, but some teams under GRU.

Vympel is the sister unit of Spetsgruppa "A"(Alpha Group), a KGB/FSB unit, while some soldiers have stayed part of the GRU, specialized in counter-terrorism missions.

A Ghost squad consisting of Sage, Joker, Nomad, and Weaver were once assigned to Ukraine to extract an officer, but they were ambushed by the unit.

One operative is under Central Intelligence Agency protection in Maine, who still has nightmares after tangling with the Ghosts.
