Citizens of Chernarus

There is also an ethnic Russian minority living mainly in the northern territories, where Russian is the second official language. People are also divided by their political alignments and sympathies.
Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star
Although the communist insurgency has its roots as an underground movement, it is now a conventional force with military structure and weapon platforms captured from the Chernarussian government or provided by international arms dealers. This has given ChDKZ enough power to start a coup against the government.
Russian Armed Forces

Nationalist guerillas of the National Party is an underground movement lacking sophisticated weapons, but their knowledge of the country, military expertise from civil war and underground network make them serious opponents to both communist guerillas and government forces.
Chernarussian Defence Forces

People of Takistan
Takistani society is still based mainly on the tribal structure, and all men in the countryside possess various small arms to hunt and defend their family and village against any threat. Many of the tribes are still loyal to the royal family despite the government's effort to undermine the royalist faction.
Takistani army is not just an armed force, it is a government by itself. Supreme regional commanders are also the political leaders since the coup d' état in 1992. The army is composed mainly of the conventional ground forces and swallows most income from the crude oil, natural gas and minerals trade.

Organized in several highly mobile task forces, American troops are ready to neutralize the Takistani force threatening the peace in the Green Sea region.
