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 Russian Armed Forces, or with the Soviet Red Army which is the predecessor of the CDF, they inherited multiple traditions and equipment choices just as the Soviet Army, as many of the bases where built during the Soviet times.

Before the outbreak[edit | edit source]
The Chernarussian Defense Forces (CDF) were formed right after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, to defend to the newly independent Republic. The army acquired nearly all Soviet assets in the country, including all the accessible military bases and weapon stockpiles.
In Autumn 2009, the CDF was involved a bloody civil war against the opposed communist separatists and a close call shootout with 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 fight alongside as the Chedaki claimed most of South Zagoria, which is what lead to the presence of Western and UN equipment in the area. Lack of readiness and continued fighting, left the army with no control of the expanding communist forces forcing them to retreat.
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.

Here are all the currently known Military installations in South Zagoria:
- Military Base at Bashnya

Equipment[edit | edit source]
The Chernarus Defense forces have a wide variety of equipment in their bases and camps, although it is unknown exactly how much of it was used by them.

Gorka E Uniform[edit | edit source]
Tanker Uniform[edit | edit source]

Soviet Uniform[edit | edit source]
Traditional Soviet Red Army uniforms and hats are apart of the culture in Chernarus, often worn during May 9th or often known as "Victory Day" to commemorate the victory of World War 2 by the Soviet Union. It is celebrated in former Soviet countries like Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, etc.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
