The Conscript is the basic infantry of Russia and the cheapest unit in Rise of the Reds.

The Russian Conscripts are Mother Russia's go-to for basic riflemen. They are weak individually but competent at taking on their adversaries in large numbers, using their AK-74 rifles to overpower the enemy. Their rudimentary training puts emphasis on teamwork and anti-infantry combat. They lack the advanced skills of other infantry units and get killed quite easily, netting them a reputation as "Russia's meat shield". However, don't discount them, as they can be powerful en masse.
