Ivan went on to continue legacy of his grandfather Oleg Gromov, navy admiral praised and loved by many in his town.
Oleg enlisted Igor in the local military school and by age of 23 he graduated studies with almost perfect scores. He didn't want to live off his grandfathers name and went to ground troops instead of navy.

The girl was stunningly beautiful, Ivan fell in love from a first sight. After some flirting and chit-chat he got her address and phone number, promising to take her out to the most expensive restaurant in the city. Upon receiving the long awaited promotion to Sergeant Ivan got an red envelope stating "TOP SECRET" "FOR IVAN GROMOV EYES ONLY".
One of most happiest days of Ivans life was darkened by new orders from high command. The letter stated that Ivan to be commissioned to the nearest airbase Kakashkino within 12 hours after opening the envelope. Mission description was brief "contaminate outbreak "
Quickly assembling his belongings and postponing date with Natasha(girl that he met earlier) Ivan arrived to Kakashkino just in time for debrief.
Ivan was part of the first group to be sent to Chernarus . Upon arrival Ivans helicopter was shoot down by unknown hostiles. Somehow Ivan managed to survive the crash, be it a good luck or his will to survive and see face of Natasha again. He continues into Chernarus in hope to meet up with some of his comrades and finding out what the hell is happening here.
