Before the outbreak[edit | edit source]
The Russian Army had a strong presence in Chernarus during the Civil war in 2009, but after the Outbreak happened shortly after most of the Russian Army backed off and left some weapons and vehicles. Just up north of South Zagoria next to the town of Krasnoe a convoy of most likely Russian vehicles lay dead in their tracks from an unknown cause.
In Autumn 2009, the Russian's were involved in the bloody civil war against various warring factions and supported the Communist rebel group known as the ChDKZ or Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star because the Russian Government was fooled into believing the faction known as National Party did the Red Square bombing that killed dozens of Russians and thus sided with the ChDKZ. The things that led to the outbreak in the Green Sea are unknown, but the time of when the Outbreak happened is definitely sometime just after 2009 when the Civil war was just resolving and ChDKZ and Russian forces were just leaving.
Post-Outbreak[edit | edit source]
At some point after (or during) the Civil War, an infection had spread through out Chernarus. The Russian Armed Forces fought against the zombies hordes, however, many weapons, equipment and vehicles remain throughout the landscape of Chernarus, mostly damaged, but often in a repairable state. Because of this, Russian military equipment is some of the most sought after loot in the game, frequently used by survivors and bandits alike.
Facilities[edit | edit source]
There are currently unknown Russian Military bases at this time other than some of the CDF military base's such as Tisy Military Base being right next to the Russian Federation.
