There are two factions at constant war. The well-equipped military soldiers versus the strength in numbers militia. Enemy soldiers each have their own unique strategy when attacking their targets. They respond accordingly and use specific tactics which can easily overwhelm the player. They are equipped with radio communication and can also call in for backup whether it's for more units or air support.
The standard foot soldier is the lowest ranking unit of the bunch. They are usually the first line of defense and are equipped with medium grade armor. Usually they carry around the AK-74u or the Mossberg 590
Whenever there is a need for containing hazardous materials, the scientist is key to figuring out constructive solutions. Although they have virtually no ballistic armor, which makes them easy targets, they usually are well equipped with the notorious PPSh-41
The squad leader is usually the head of the squad. They give out strategic orders and feed intel back to headquarters. They usually sport the AK-74u or SKS as well as a few hand grenades.
This unit specializes in areas with heavy radiation and nuclear waste. They are sent in to protect the Scientists while they continue to research the affected areas. You will see them equipped with the deadly AMX-50K
These combat veterans are well equipped, highly trained and are heavily armored. This is the only unit that wont die easily from head shots, so bring out the big guns! They carry the infamous AKM along with night vision, among other high-tech gear.
The expert marksman usually engages enemy targets from concealed positions or at distances. Snipers are equipped with high-precision rifles (like the SVT-40) and often relay information back to their squad leader. They usually maintain their position at higher ground.
The Recon Drone is one of the most agile units in the military arsenal. The four legged drone can quickly gallop across rough terrain and can be deployed in both urban and wooded areas. It is equipped with an automated turret that acquires and shoots targets. The turret rotates to all angles, and can even shoot at targets behind the drone. Not only is it equipped with night vision, it also has a spinning parabolic microphone the is able to analyze sounds from within a large radius. The bot is also equipped with radio antennas which can receive and transmit information to other units at great distances. Although this unit is fitted with light armor, it somewhat easy to take down. Once eliminated, you can salvage the debris for turret parts and other crafting items.
The Tank Drone is the deadliest weapon in the enemy arsenal. The three legged tank drone moves slowly across rough terrain and is typically limited to clear paths and roads. This drone can detect units within a 20 meter radius, and is also equipped with an advance laser weapon that destroys any target in its path. The tripod bot is not only heavily armored, but it also generates a force field that surrounds the unit, which temporarily renders it immune to any weapon. Once eliminated you can salvage the debris for laser turret parts and other crafting items.
The Drop Ship is the most important vehicle that the military use whenever they need to move troops across the region. Although unarmed, the Drop Ship can mobilize several squads as well as a Recon or Tank Drone if needed. Squad Leaders are the only units that can call in reinforcements, which typically show up either by foot, or in a Drop Ship. There are only a few areas that are clear enough, such as a farm field, in where the ship can land to deploy units from it's cargo bay. However, a Drop Ship can also hover over an area to drop off a Tank Drone along with other equipment.
The Mi-24 is the oldest functional helicopter in Kovroninsk. Although it has been decommissioned for decades, it was brought back into the arsenal before the last nuclear war due to a shortage of supplies and materials. This heavy gunship can fire a barrage of missiles onto several targets while rapidly maneuvering across large areas. The Mi-24 is rarely seen in combat, and is only flown to be used as a last resort. It can be taken down by using surface to air missile turrets found randomly in military facilities.
