Shock trooper icon
The most menacing of all Russian infantry, the Shock Trooper can deal with any situation. They are characterized by their gas masks and heavy equipment, and will be fielded by General Aleksandr in 2.0.


The Shock Troopers are General Aleksandr's elite heavy troopers. These men undergo extreme training and suspected brainwashing in Siberia. In the process, they lose all respect for human life. They become war machines, living only to defend the motherland. They display fanatical devotion toward their general and carry out even the most dangerous or merciless order without hesitation. They would adopt any means necessary to ensure victory and as a unit they have several charges of war crimes against them.

They bear with them harsh training experience, and Russia's heaviest and most advanced equipment, including advanced body armor, enough to stop a tank from crushing them. This also includes their iconic heavy weapon, Valerya Aleeksev's 30mm Rocket Rifle, capable of unleashing a barrage of firepower upon their unfortunate foes. Their alternate weapon is a smaller version of the Tesla Coil, able to electrocute infantry, and disable any tanks that get in their way. During the failed Russian assault at the Battle of Ramsgate, the Shock Troopers carried out the assault by leading the charge, carelessly destroying military and civilian infrastructure alike.
