COLONEL BREKHOV (v1)
OKTOBER GUARD COMMANDO
Series: Fifteen (1998)
Colonel Brekhov was released as part of the fifteenth series (1998) in the Oktober Guard three pack with Lt. Gorky and Volga.
WEBMASTER'S NOTE: The packaging for the Oktober Guard three pack confusingly labeled Colonel Brekhov as being Lt. Gorky and vice versa. According to Hasbro sources and consultants who helped Hasbro with the project, the figure pictured above is Colonel Brekhov.
Colonel Brekhov came with a black AK-103, a black backpack (the antenna is removable), a black hat, a black knife, a black chaingun (with two removable barrels), a black belt of ammo (that connected to the chaingun and the backpack), and a black battle stand.
Grade: Colonel (equivalent)
Birthplace: Odessa, Ukraine, USSR
Primary Specialty: Command and Strategy
Secondary Specialty: Infantry
COLONEL BREKHOV is the distinguished command of the OKTOBER GUARD, the Soviet counterpart to the American G.I. Joe Team (although he maintains that the G.I Joe Team is the American counterpart of the Oktober Guard). Brekhov has spent his entire adult life in service to his country, but he's by no means a flunky of the Soviet hierarchy, spouting party lines at every opportunity. He genuinely cares about the welfare of the Soviet Union and its people, and he feels that the best way he can serve them is to be the best soldier and commander possible. He is a superb strategist and fearless in battle. His tactical mind is not above setting aside political differences to occasionally team the Oktober Guard with the G.I. Joe Team to overcome the far greater threat posed by COBRA.
FROM GENERAL HAWK'S FILES: "Brekhov is what some would call an 'old war-horse'. The military is his life and it's really all he knows. He's the quintessential Soviet soldier through and through, and has no great love for Americans. But he hates COBRA even more. I can respect an attitude like that."
No variations of Colonel Brekhov (v1) are known to exist.
Colonel Brekhov's entire mold was originally used to create Red Star (1991)
