Red Army flag

The unofficial flag of the Red Army

The Red Army (Russian: Рабоче-крестьянская красная армия  Raboche-Krest'yanskaya Krasnaya Armiya; English: Workers'-Peasants' Red Army) was the armed forces of the Soviet Union. The Red Army started out as a revolutionary militia during the Russian Civil War of 1918-1922. After its victory and the establishment of the Soviet Union, it grew to become the national army of the Soviet Union, and, by the 1930s, was one of the largest armies in history. During World War II, the Red Army fought on the front lines against German forces in the Eastern Front. Though poorly trained, the Red Army had an advantage with numbers and defeated about 80% of Wehrmacht and Waffen SS forces on the Eastern Front. In 1946, the Red Army was renamed the Soviet Army until 1991, where the Soviet Army was separated and reformed into armed forces of different sovereign states, such as the Russian Ground Forces.

The Red Army icon as it appears in Battlefield 1.

The Red Army is one of two Russian factions featured in the Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar expansion. They are opposed by the Tsarist-aligned White Army on maps set within the Russian interior.

Red Army soldiers used improvised uniforms and specific headgear - winter caps like the budenovka (worn by medic and support) and papakha (worn by assault and scout).

TriviaEdit

Battlefield 1Edit

  • The Red Army is the only faction in the entire game to not have a model for the Pilot kit because the two maps that they are featured in do not feature planes, making the kit impossible to access.
  • The Red Army reuses quotes from the Imperial Russian Army, which causes them to incorrectly refer to each other using Imperial Russian ranks.[1]
