Insurgents are one of the Factions in Squad. This faction is the first generic insurgent faction to be featured in Squad. They are featured on Middle-Eastern style theaters against conventional factions.

History[edit | edit source]

Tired of constant invasions and occupations, these warriors have decided to take up arms and defend their homelands against the tyranny of outsiders. Having spent hundreds of years in conflict with outside nations and with little equipment or minimal funding, this highly trained group of fighters has become extremely skilled in the art of guerrilla warfare. The insurgency will continue until all foreigners have been driven from their homelands, just as they have done for centuries.

Flag[edit | edit source]

In the Insurgent flag, a yellow diagonal stripe line equally splits up the red and black backgrounds. A Kalashnikov rifle (probably an AK-74) is shown in full white in the canton.

In Game Equipment[edit | edit source]

Insurgent forces use predominantly eastern weapons. Unlike the Russian Army the Insurgents employ the usage of mostly older weapons, from the mid 1940's to 1980s, as they lack the logistics to access more modern military weaponry.
