good guide, like it

Service pistol for higher ranking officer and special units would probably be the CR75 over the Makarov right?

Yeah. It's locally made so it would probably take precedent.

This is gorgeous. Referencing this if I ever make another CDF character. 

Thanks for taking the time to write this out.

Okay it's updated. I might give a couple more things to Greener to change and add in the future but that's it for now. All the credit goes to him for slaving over this. Many thanks to all the contributors that made it possible. 

More Lore on the CDF and CAF will be made available in the future through the revised Book of Chernarus once that's added to the Wiki.

You forgot the part of the timeline where 'Kamenici takes over the SZ region' 😛

Great guide and read, definitely need this IC since there's so many "old CDF" russians hangin' round.

God is a Chernarussian.

This is really good, thanks for the mention.

@Major were there any noteworthy Soviet-era Chernarussian units? If so, it'd be interesting to hear about them.

Especially renowned was the airborne unit that was based at NWAF. According to Bohemia's own Lore it went back to WW2.

Aside from that there were intercepter Mig-23ML squadrons stationed in Miroslavl and Primorsk to counter NATO in Turkey.

88th ‘Duch’ CBRN Company - Apart of the 93rd Bridage South Zagoria was stationed at Tisy military base prior to the outbreak and unconfirmed sources suggest they were also present at Kamensk military base prior to the outbreak. More recently they have been involved in the collection of nuclear fuel rods that appeared in South Zagoria near Novaya Petrovka. They specialize in handling NBC materials and deploy into contaminated areas.

Could I possibly make a character based around this company? 🤔

Why not? My own character used to serve in it pre-infection for limited time. But I get what you might possibly aim for with the question. As far as I know you only really should check out potential issues beforehand or "ask" for it if you intend to have special character backgrounds including certain international or national special forces (COBR or comparable) or if you want to have special individual backgrounds like "I was researcher at Ground Zero when it happened". I am obviously not part of the lore master team but since I am close-ish or was close-ish many times and saw some cases where decisions were made or things were discussed, I lean out of the window here and claim that I should be summarizing this well, but any member of said team should correct me if I mentioned something wrong or forgot something there.

 

But in this particular case, I see no issue with this particular unit since it wasn't Kamensk only, meaning you could portray a (former?) soldier from that unit who was not involved with that thing at all, which is what I do background-wise, too. As most military forces have NBC or CBRN components it doesn't seem like something notably special here.

 

On another note: Are you just looking for a personal character background or could you imagine playing in some sort of CDF (player) group? If you do not want to completely rule out the latter, there could be demand for this. I know at least one other person who is very interested in this, but has no ability or incentive to do it alone - understandably so. I might throw in my weight meaning we'd be three already and that's just counting us. Anyone interested in this can send me a PM.

 

Also fun fact: I made the shitty logo for the 88th ‘Duch’ CBRN Company 🤨

 

 

Guide / CDF equipment lore suggestion:

I suggest to consider the SSh-68 Combat Helmet to be phased out, if not completely then partially. Frankly most sources or indicators I can think of, including CDF mods for Arma 3 and the time at hand (modernization programs before and / or after infection), indicate to me they'd use a different, either more western or more modern looking helmet. So long story short, we should add more western or modern looking combat helmets or maybe tactical helmets (for particular CDF units) to the gear page if able to.

I also must say I just dislike the thing in-game, and wouldn't want to run around with it 😛

Playing a character who is ex-CDF, this is really useful lore! Thanks for sharing.

@Combine I'm keeping it as it until a model like the one in arma 2 is about and of good quality. A decent ttsko texture, not something that looks flat as hell. 

@TheMrGasMask Sure go for it

@Combine

While I am in favor of using the PASGT over the SSH68, sadly without some sort of fabric cover it looks like an eye-sore.

Maybe that's just me though...

@Greener161

Also to note, the ballistic helmet (PASGT) that is in the game is the same as the one the CDF is meant to use, but like stated above, please do not even consider it before we get a damn helmet cover.

Just spoke to Greener about this too, he kind of brought up the fabric issue, too. The mod screenshots look fine to me and indicate fabric, but here's the issue: Obviously different model and game, of sorts.

 

No clue how our helmet would look with TTSKO and whatnot, if it looks like crap, then...well... (TTSKO retexture could still be better than nothing for the other helmets).
