~ In-game description

The Russian Ground Forces is a playable faction featured in Squad. This faction is the second conventional army featured in the game.

History[edit | edit source]

After the Soviet Union collapsed, the military force of the newly-created Russian Federation was in a state of neglect. The Russian Armed Forces (RAF) was created, succeeding the dissolved Soviet Army as the main army of the Russian Federation. A branch of the RAF, the Russian Ground Forces (RGF) focuses on ground warfare. The RGF is highly trained and prepared and is tasked with the protection of state borders, the security of occupied territories, and distinction at land combat.

Flag[edit | edit source]

The flag of the Russian Ground Forces shown in Squad is the Russian Tricolor; consisting of three equal horizontal fields with white on top, blue on the middle, and red on the bottom.

In-game equipment[edit | edit source]

The Russian Ground Forces uses a diversity of equipment ranging from the Soviet era to the present; tried and tested and available in great numbers. Optics are available, but are not as commonly seen as in the United States Army. Also, unlike the Western factions, the most of vehicles of the Russian Ground Forces lack digital rangefinders for their weapons. They instead have built-in analog rangefinders on their vehicle optics, similar to the ones found on the Russian Field Binoculars. The only vehicles in their arsenal that has a digital rangefinder are the T-72B3 main battle tank and Tigr-M RWS light attack vehicle. The lack of digital rangefinders is not a big issue however as the ranges of their vehicle weapons are easy to get used to.
