Alexsander Sukov was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia to a family that believed heavily in the Soviet reunification and his family was Russia bred through and through. Alexsander was a man of little words, but his actions spoke louder than words ever could. At a young age, he excelled at mathematics and the arts of military tactics, and thus was sent to a military school at a young age. After graduation from the academy, he joined the Russian Spetsnaz and assigned to a squad of men that were hand-picked for special gifted talents. He shortly adopted the knack for fixing and repairing Cold War era weaponry and was nicknamed Tachanka due to the Machine Gun he toted around with him during Special Combat Ops. After countless tours and the squad being moved into the special anti-terrorist division, he left his big gun behind and adopted a more subtle approach to warfare and started using his nation's pride and joy, the AK47-M. He would specialize in repairing the squad's weaponry and keeping counts on ammo and provisions. Alexsander, Timur Glazkov, and Maxim Basuda were pulled from their squad and assigned to a reconnaissance team sent to Chernarus to scout out the spread of an unknown viral infection and were last seen around the Vybor Military Compound.
