The Russian Army, officially the Russian Ground Forces (Russian: Сухопутные войска Российской Федерации, Suhopútnuiye voyská Rosseeyskoy Federácii) are the land forces of the Russian Federation. Active since 1992 after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian Ground Forces were formed from various parts of the Red Army. From 1992 onward, the Russian Ground Forces were withdrawn from Soviet bases in foreign regions to focus on "near abroad" affairs. They use sophisticated military tactics and perform with conventional warfare.

Battlefield 4Edit

The Russian Army is an available faction featured in Battlefield 4.

SingleplayerEdit

The Russian Army appears as a hostile force in Baku and Tashgar.

In Baku, the RGF is deployed to Baku, Azerbaijan to intercept Tombstone Squad from collecting intelligence from a defecting Russian military general regarding Russia's stance on Admiral Chang's coup d'état in China. Pursuing Tombstone squadron throughout Baku and when Tombstone was about to be extracted, in a last effort deployed an Mi-28 Havoc to intercept them, while destroying the extraction helicopter, they did not succeeded in stopping Tombstone's escape.

In Tashgar, it seems the Russian Ground Forces occupied the town and surrounding areas (including a damaged dam), forcing the Marines stationed there into the old town, when Tombstone arrived, the RGF had gained the upperhand throughout the town. Tombstone Squad managed to fight there way through light Russian armor and troops to get to Greenland. In exchange for a transport to Suez, Tombstone was to blow up a dam (which underneath it was multiple SAM sites). After fighting there way through the dam, tombstone blew up the dam. Thus neutralizing the SAM threat and were transported via a C-130 Cargo Plane.

Weapons UsedEdit

The uniforms they wear come in five varieties: one identical to the Support in multiplayer with the exception of their visor for the helmet is down (similar to the PLA in SP ) who always wield a PKP, another identical to the Chinese Engineer who wields either a PP2000 or Saiga-12, a third that is like the Chinese Assault skin without goggles or a facewrap and uses a plain green camo and wields an AK-12, a fourth one is identical to the RU Recon wielding the SV-98 and the fifth functions as an AT troop using the RU Engineer model from MP and uses an AK-12 for close range and a SMAW. However, despite making use of Chinese skins, their weapons are almost all Russian in make -- the AK-12, PP2000, PKP, SV-98 and Saiga 12 are their small arms. However, they do make use of some American weapons such as the SMAW

MultiplayerEdit

The Russian army is pitted against both the USMC and PLA. Due to the choice of factions on a map being up to the server operator, the RGF can appear on any map against any other faction, including the RGF itself, if the server owner wishes so.

PLA vs RGFEdit

Image Map
GOLMUD2 Golmud Railway: A map with a wide range of environs -- open, hilly lands to the south, intersected by the eponymous railway, with clusters of buildings offering mid and closer-range engagement at various points around the map.
Mp damage Lancang Dam: A vaguely U-shaped map, where most of the land concentrated around a road that runs through the map. It offers both naval and land engagements, with a variety of distances.
Mp thedish Rogue Transmission: A wide-open map centered around a large radio dish. It offers largely long-range engagements with a wide variety of vehicles, although there are clusters of buildings which can allow for combat at closer ranges.

USMC vs RGFEdit

Image Map
Mp abandoned Zavod 311: A map set in the forest, largely revolving around an old tank factory. It features limited vehicular combat, with relatively short sightlines compared to the other vehicle-centric maps.
Operation Locker 2 Operation Locker: A large, two-level map which is largely enclosed. Featuring only infantry combat, it is almost purely close-quarters, with only a few corridors inside and two pathways along the outer edge.
BF4 oman (SA) Gulf of Oman: A fairly built-up map focused in and around a construction site. Vehicles play a large role on this map, but with short sightlines there is just as much need for infantry.
BF4 firestorm (SA) Operation Firestorm: The fire flows in this wide, open desert petroleum facility. It is largely vehicle-based, with only a few clusters of buildings for shorter ranged infantry engagements.
BF4 metro (SA) Operation Metro: Years later, the fighting has come back to a very familiar subway and park. Close quarters has you scrambling in the subway and longish range combat in the park.
Caspian Border (SA) Caspian Border: A large, mostly-open map focusing on vehicular combat. There are very few buildings on this map, and trees can be uprooted, and as a result sightlines on this map can get very long.
BF4 opwhiteout (FS) Operation Whiteout: Oh, the weather outside is frightful, in this blizzard engulfed map. It will be a chilling vehicle warzone, with long range support from infantry; just remember that the blizzard will fade in and out as time goes on!
BF4 hangar21 (FS) Hangar 21: The precursor to a magnificent futuristic war machine, sits in its hangar, that was recently turned warzone. Traverse this long range map, in man cannons to help assist your vehicle brethren. Close quarters is huge in the similarly intense hangar. The night though, will make it difficult to see.
BF4 hammerhead (FS) Hammerhead: A snowed in submarine base becomes the home of some intense vehicle fighting, with as many as three attack choppers in the sky! Long range will be the primary style all around the map. Light snow flurries are expected!
BF4 giantsofkarelia (FS) Giants of Karelia: The giants are here. You will be fighting amongst the prototypes of futuristic walkers, in an underground bunker that act as close quarters central. Once you get outside though, vehicular and long range combat will be the way to live.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • In Battlefield: Bad Company & Bad Company 2, the Russian vehicles' HUD color is red.

Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit

  • Sometimes, in Bad Company, the soldiers can be heard shouting "Dimitri", a common Russian male name.
  • The Serdaristani soldiers use exactly the same uniforms, equipment, and phrases as the Russian Army.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

  • They are always the Defenders in Squad Rush for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Battlefield 3Edit

  • The first-person model for them in Battlefield 3 is the same as Dimitri's, regardless of class.
  • Both the Russian and USMC announcer will sometimes say "Lets maintain this and we can all go home soon" when they have control of all flags in Conquest, but with different voices.
  • The Russian Army in Battlefield 3 are always the Defenders in Rush and Squad Rush on all maps.

Battlefield 4Edit

  • In the singleplayer campaign, all RGF character models feature People's Republic of China flag patches, which is most-likely an error. Soldiers wielding the PP-2000 will use identical character model to that used by PLA forces wielding the JS2.
