Action was a German demo and cracking group, formed in 1989. Sex'n'Crime 1 (february 1989) reported, "THIS GROUP CONSISTS OF XADES SOCIETY AND SOME FROM LEVEL 99.", indicating they were a new group at the time.
The very early march 1989 release Ace 2088 listed Pyre Soundtec, Gadget, Spitfire, TWP and Macryf as members at that time. By the late april 1989 release of Hard'n'Heavy +2, LTN was listed as a new member. German Cyco (code gfx) was kicked around september, and DP/ex Aidon joined around the same time. TWP was kicked in december, and subsequently joined Nato.
German swapper Macryf was busted late january 1990 for post faking, and subsequently left the scene to avoid further trouble. German coder and cracker Jihad joined from Vision late january, after being pursuaded by Spitfire to join. German graphician and swapper Marcus joined from Alpha Flight around february, and changed his handle to Accu. Jihad left again around may, now after disagreements with the same Spitfire. Jihad built his own group, called Hitmen. Accu left in july, changed his handle to Public Enemy and joined Flash Inc. Cracker TMM joined around september.
The group was in importing and fixing partnership with NEI in january 1991. Xox changed his handle back to Airwolf and left for Paramount in january - which must be wrong, since Airwolf was definitely a member in june!?. At least in june, the group was in importing partnership with Empire. Pravda 9 (december 1991) reported that the group was now dead. German crackers Crisp and Hok disappeared from the scene, but reappeared in august 1993 as members of RSI!
