Russian Spetsnaz [RHS]

In 1 collection by (4SFG) jarrad96
Special Operation Forces Factions [RHS Edition]
14 items
Special Forces Faction that adds Russian 'Spetsnaz' Forces, based on the Spetsnaz 'Vympel' unit from 2012-2015 and the Spetsnaz SSO from 2016-2017. It contains a range of ground and air forces, with vehicle supports.

Note this version is dependant on RHS Escalation. If you would prefer different dependancies there is a SMA/ NIA version also available. They are not compatible with each other and cannot be enabled at the same time.

Historical Info-

The term 'Spetsnaz' is a general catch-all that refers to all Soviet and Russian Special Forces groups. The faction is based on the Spetznaz SSO and the Spetznaz 'Vympel' units in particular.
'Vympel' Unit was formed under the command of the KGB, the Soviet intelligence forces, in 1981, and it operates internationally, outside Russia's borders. The Unit went on to fight in Afghanistan, Cuba, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Angola, Mozambique, Lebanon, as either direct combat units and a raiding force, intelligence gathering recon missions, or as military advisors in fighting against guerilla or insurgent movements.

The Faction-

Spetsnaz Vympel forces in the faction are equipped with SURPAT camo, with AK-74M's as the primary rifle, with Eotech's, Kobra's and other optics. The VSS, PKP, AKS-74U and RPG-26 serve in specialist roles within the faction.
Spetznaz SSO are equipped in Multicam uniforms, with more access to Zenitco AK-74's and AK103's compared to the Vympel units, with SVD's, PKP's and RPG-18's in specialist roles. The standard sidearm is the MP443 'Grach' but some Glock 17's and Makarov PM's are also used in small numbers.

They are based on photographs and helmet camera footage of Spetsnaz units from 2012 to early-2017. Unlike Western special forces groups this faction has a large amount of close range weapons largely with red dot sights and the VSS for silent elimination of guards and sentries, or assassinations.

Also includes a substantial amount of SSO Spetsnaz soldiers, based on photographs and helmet camer footage from Mid-2016 to March, 2017, from the fighting in the Palmyria Offensive, Syria. The SSO are much more suited to desert fighting than the Vympel forces, and have slighty more access to more advanced equipment due to being based on photos that are several years newer.

Specialist Elements-

The 'Vympel' unit have small teams of Recon Forces with supressed carbines, VKSS's and a Ghille suited sniper team. They also have a gunship-transported squad for heavily armed assaults into enemy bases or compounds. Spetznaz SSO also have a sniper team, but due to the high temprature and more urbanised fighting they are engaged in in Syria they are not wearing ghille suits, and have body armor similar to regular soldiers. Standard sniper rifle is the Orsis T-5000, bolt action 338. Lapua Magnum rifle.


A Hunter-Killer Mi-24 Hind Gunship team is available as heavy fire support, with 2 gunships operating in tandem to destroy ground targets. A T-80 BV and a BMP-3 (Up-armored kit) are also available as armored vehicles, with the GAZ (Tiger) being used as a lighter ground transport vehicle.

Static weapons like the KORD and AGS-30 grenade machineguns can be carried within the squads.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio and ALiVE support (faction name RUS ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system. Russian Spetsnaz are an OPFOR faction.
Discussion page and updates/ WIP logs will be posted here before they hit the Workshop.

The brown FSB AK in picture 3 is a private mod - I do not have it myself, and the person who made the weapon and took the picture for me has since quit modding Arma 3.

Hey could you fix the keys, one of the PBO is not fully signed please. Or if I could have permission to repack it to not give you any trouble.

Your work is wonderful. I don't know if I can trouble you to make another faction. If you are free and convenient, many of my friends and I are looking forward to changing the VDV faction's helmet in RHS Russian Army into VMF's helmet, keeping EMR camouflage and making them look more modern. Thank you. I'm looking forward to refueling.
