In the name of freedom, equality and brotherhood of nations of the Fatherland, we swear to fight for the freedom and independence of the Republic of Chernarus.
~ From the Oath of Enlistment of CDF[1]

The Chernarussian Defense Forces (CDF) are the combined military forces of the Republic of Chernarus. While clearly overwhelmed and brought down by the Zombie apocalypse, many things from the force remain intact and usable, all highly sought after by the Survivors that are in the country.

The Chernarussian Defense Forces should not be confused with the Soviet Red Army or rather Russian Army from which they inherited multiple traditions and equipment choices.

General[edit | edit source]

Before the outbreak[edit | edit source]

The Chernarussian Defense Forces (CDF) were formed on the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, to defend to the newly independent Republic. The army acquired nearly all Russian assets in the country, including all the accessible military bases.

In Autumn 2009, the CDF was involved a bloody civil war against the opposed communist separatists and the Russian Armed Forces. The newly formed communist force was known as the Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star, or Chedaki for short. After many months of civil war without resolution, the country sought help from NATO armies to strengthen their army, which is likely what lead to the presence of Western and UN equipment in the area. Lack of funds and continued fighting, left the army in low state of readiness, and many of its bases damaged, and largely abandoned before the Outbreak had even began.

Post-Outbreak[edit | edit source]

At some point after (or during) the Civil War, an infection rapidly spread through out Chernarus. The CDF made many attempts to contain and destroy the disease. They evacuated the cities of Chernarus, set up military camps, bombed cities, and set up roadblocks. But, even with these attempts, they were quickly overwhelmed by the infected. Their soldiers either fled to the forest or became zombies themselves, with most of their soldiers dead, by then the Chernarussian Defense Forces had to fall back or was completely destroyed. Now, many Weapons, Equipment and Vehicles remain throughout the landscape of Chernarus, mostly in a damaged, but often repairable state. Because of this, Military equipment is some of the most sought after loot in the game, frequently used by Survivors and Bandits alike.

Recruitment[edit | edit source]

The CDF was also recruiting from the local population in Chernarus and had recruitment ads in some cities.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Flag of the Chernarus Defense Force is likely inspired by the Flag of the city of Prague, given the identical style and almost identical colors
  • The military bases, camps, and airfields were built in the Cold War times by the Soviet Union
