Special Forces Faction that adds Russian 'Spetznaz' Forces, based on the Spetznaz 'Vympel' unit from 2012-2016. It contains a range of ground and air forces, with vehicle supports.
The term 'Spetznaz' is a general catch-all that refers to all Soviet and Russian Special Forces groups. The faction is based on the Spetznaz GRU and the Spetznaz 'Vympel' units in particular.
'Vympel' Unit was formed under the command of the KGB, the Soviet intelligence forces, in 1981, and it operates internationally, outside Russia's borders. The Unit went on to fight in Afghanistan, Cuba, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Angola, Mozambique, Lebanon, as either direct combat units and a raiding force, intelligence gathering recon missions, or as military advisors in fighting against guerilla or insurgent movements.
Spetznaz forces in the faction are equipped with SURPAT camo, with AK-74M's as the primary rifle, with Eotech's, Kobra's and other optics. The VKSS, Magpulised SVD (Cyrus), AKMSU and the AK-12 serve in specialist roles within the faction. They are based on photographs and helmet camera footage of SURPAT wearing Spetznaz units from 2012 to mid-2016. Unlike Western special forces groups this faction has a large amount of close range subsonic weapons like the AKMSU and VKSS weapons for silent elimation of guards and sentries, or assassinations.
The Spetznaz 'Vympel' unit have small teams of Recon Forces with supressed carbines, VKSS's and a Ghille suited sniper team. They also have a gunship-transported squad for heavily armed assaults into enemy bases or compounds.
A Hunter-Killer Mi-48 Gunship team is available as heavy fire support, with 2 gunships operating in tandem to destroy ground targets. A T-72 BM heavily upgraded T-72 tank in Russian camo is also available, and static weapons like the KORD and AGS-30 grenade machineguns can be carried within the squads.
Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio and ALiVE support (faction name RUS ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system. Russian Spetznaz is an INDEP faction.
