My name is Dimitri ”Babadukov” Kalashnik, 30-year-old Senior Sergeant (Stárshiy serzhánt) who joined Chernarussian Defence Forces. After signing a contract with CDF, I first got assigned to 76th “Jarilo” Mechanized Battalion. Basic training was very interesting for me, as this was Mechanized Brigade my engineering skills became recognized by drill-instructor so I got recommended for a promotion. I was trying my best to fit in the army and after few years I was not recruit anymore, I got promoted to rank „Senior Sergeant“ and I become combat engineer... After promotion, I was transferred to 66th "Chernobog" Mechanized Battalion under the command of the commanding officer, First Sergeant Mihakil Horashov and got assigned to Sergeant Boris Kruskov to be a gunner in his tank.
Nothing interesting happened in the base for a long time, so we were bored. Somewhere around 21:00 our commander comes in and screams: „Pack your shit ladies, we leave on a mission at dawn“ Holy cow! My first combat mission, I was waiting for this for so long... I was very excited to finally shoot some real targets, not old destroyed tanks. For the whole night I was awake and I was thinking about what will happen next.
As we came to Chernarus with army trucks we realize that we will not use tanks, we had only humvees at our disposal but we had to wait for them to get delivered to us because they were sent in by the train to Chernarus... I was scared, to be honest, there is no 70 tons of steel to hide behind... But I was trying to hide my fear. My first few days there was hard, as I was an engineer, I and few other soldiers had to fortify our position, dig trenches, set guard post, and build an MG nest. During establishing a small safe HQ I met an extraordinary soldier named Arseny Aarsenyev, and we become a best "Brothers in Arms". After a short period our FOB was located several kilometers south of Gorka and our main mission was to regroup with other CDF forces. While setting up FOB we had to deal with zombies, even though we knew about them from our briefing, it was a strange thing to see. As FOB was set, we went to Gorka to meet with other CDF forces...
Gorka was a nice small town but it was a ghost town, after searching few houses we found an old man hiding in the basement and then scared old man explained to us that there is a virus that turns people to a zombie and that he has some supplies if we need. As we were fresh deployed we still had some supplies so we thanked old man and went forward to meet with CDF...
