STORMAVIK is a member of the elite VDV, or Vozdushno-Desantnye Vojska (Soviet Airborne Forces). He's a tough fighter and a loyal soldier. As alliances and borders shift in frequent and contradictory ways, he regards COLONEL BREKHOV as a solid and consistent battlefield officer. He follows the core values of the colonel: justice, honor, and dedication to his fellow soldiers.
STORMAVIK has a complete commitment to duty and his unflinching courage makes him a valuable member of the OKTOBER GUARD team.
