Cpt. Furtez was part of the Stingray 2 crew during Operation Fairway. Given his rank, he was most likely the leader of the squad aboard Stingray 2, which crash landed in the Iron Forest, at Zaton. After the landing, the crew was attacked by a Poltergeist. Most probably hurt and shocked soldiers quickly fell victims to this powerful mutant. Besides him two other crewman's bodies are found near the derelict, Sgt Gazda and Snr Sgt Shveiko. The wreckage and bodies may and most probably will be guarded by just the same Poltergeist. Furtez does not have any significance to the story.
