History

After the Soviet Union collapsed, the military force of the newly-created Russian Federation was in a state of neglect. The Russian Armed Forces (RAF) was created, succeeding the dissolved Soviet Army as the main army of the Russian Federation. A branch of the RAF, the Russian Ground Forces (RGF) focuses on ground warfare. The RGF is highly trained and prepared and is tasked with the protection of state borders, the security of occupied territories, and distinction at land combat.

In-game equipment

The Russian Ground Forces uses a diversity of equipment ranging from the Soviet era to the present, which has been tried and tested and is available in great numbers. Optics are available but are not as advanced as their contemporaries in the US Army or fellow VDV. The faction wears EMR uniform with dark green face masks.

Russian vehicle lineup is expansive, covering most weapon configurations in different weight classes. The Russian mechanized formation with missile-carrying IFVs is especially potent. Most vehicles from Soviet times use stadiametric rangefinders due to their antiquity. Digital rangefinders can only be found on modernized vehicles, such as BMP-2M, T-72B3, and Tigr-M RWS.

Trivia

  • The Russian Ground Forces models are based off of the 'Little Green Men / Polite People' of the 2014 Crimean Crisis and subsequent annexation of Crimea into the Russian Federation. Because of this, the soldier models are equipped with TRACT-branded (Based on the real-life Osprey 'Track' goggles) goggles that the soldiers would have bought themselves as eye protection was not standard-issue.
