Boris has arrived!
- Boris heading to the front

Boris Bikov is the hero of the Russian Federation.

Lore

A renowned hero within the Russian armed forces, Boris' stealth training makes him invisible unless he attacks an enemy or is spotted by an enemy detector unit. Before entering the battlefield, he is allowed to choose between two weapon packs from the Barracks. Only one kit can be selected for Boris, and once selected, Boris will only be able to use the selected kit. As standard, Boris is also equipped with a laser designator to call in air strikes to soften hardened positions. Boris can designate a target for 2-3 MiG bombers to fly in and bomb the target area with 4-6 high explosive incendiary bombs. However, during the designation phase, Boris is unstealthed and is vulnerable to attack.

Loadout

The player must choose either the Machine Gun Loadout or the RPG Launcher Loadout before training Boris. The decision is permanent for the rest of the battle, so the selection must be considered wisely.
