The Spetznas Alfa Red Berets is the Russian Deadly Alliance and one of the CIA T.A.S.K Force Paranormal Troopers as well the members of the Federation Front. They're the rival of their American counterpart team, Elite Force Lightstorm.
The Early Days
Zemy Dragunov, along with his comrades, Lev Stovinsky and Rafik Kruchevsky, (they are also known as the Gorynych Brothers), were conscripts who are arrested for their hooliganism and insubordination and they were sent to the gulag where all dangerous and useless prisoners held there.
Escape from the Gulag
After five years in the gulag prison with psychological torture and punishment beatings, the Gorynych Brothers deceived their plan to escape during the prison break with riots going on. They have managed to reach the surface, beating the guards down and blocking them from being captured.
But when they're near to the surface, they have gone into separate ways, Lev and Rafik went to together down to the sewer tunnel while Zemy took his path to his "freedom" and surrendered to army as he usher to come in quietly but the brothers will meet each other again when the time comes.
However, this was not it seemed to his plan; it was a test carried out by the government and he was used all along. After the hard explanation from the army, Zemy accepted the offer to become the member of Special Forces unit, the Spetznas Alfa Red Berets.
The Civil War
During his years of training at the secret base, the Civil War has been broken out since the government was in serious trouble when the corrupt political party was banned, rallied their supporters and declared a revolution against the government which means they declared war on the Loyalist government.
And this is where Captain Zemy Dragunov and his new and first partner, Captain Ivan "Grizzly" Nestiski, and his first team, consisted with Sergei Volken; Grigori "Spatz" Spectroski; Victor Esoxi; Igor Spatziki; Dimitri & Andrei Dvuglavyyorel; Mikhail & Nikolai Napalmski; Natasha "Fox" Mistanova; and Kristina Grisinova, under the supervision of Commander Vladimir Volgograd and Commander Alexei Novgorod. They carried out their missions of sabotage, assault raid, POW and hostage rescue, infiltration, black propaganda, and assassination as they are defeating and weakening the terrorist rebels, anywhere in their home country.
But on their next mission at night, they infiltrated the rebels' stronghold to find their secret plan until Captain Dragunov and Captain Nestiski discovered the conspiracy going on inside the stronghold: the rebel leader is meeting with the Warlord Commandos' leader, General Shruikan, and the secret rouge general with the connection to ex-Marshal General Rusalka that he met from the gulag. He and his team were used as pawns and been fooled so that the rebels can overthrow the Loyalist government and take over the government building with the help of Warlords while they planned to hijack the nuclear missiles and launch the attack on neighboring countries.
But when their teammates found the plan and discovered the horrific truth, they were compromised and captured but Captain Dragunov and his team fought back and managed to escape the stronghold. As they managed to escape through the forest, they have managed to contact their commanders as they too have compromised and betrayed by rouge military leader.
Abandoned, Disavowed and Reunion
Days after they have managed to escaped and regrouped with their commanders, they were hunted by rebel soldiers and soldiers loyal to the rouge general but they've kept evade from being captured, days and night without fighting.
But until that day, Captain Dragunov and Captain Nestiski were hunting for some food and searching for some supplies until they were followed by unknown agents. As the agents lost their track, they were ambushed by them and attempted to capture them and interrogate them but they fought them back in hand-to-hand combat fight. Then, when they stopped fighting, the agents revealed themselves, Isabella "Crystal" Romanova and Soyuz Krustovski, as agents from the Federation Front and they were sent to inform the news and brought Zemy's old friends and brothers-in-arms, Lev and Rafik. In his unexpected surprise, the Gorynych Brothers are united once again and they returned to their dug-in hideout.
At night of their reunion, Isabella explained to them about how they have compromised, the Federation Front learned that the rouge general has disavowed Captain Dragunov and his team in public while in reality they were framed and fooling the government then blackmailed the military officials. Adding to the information, she warned them that the rouge general sent the platoon of Anthro-Bat mercenaries dressed up as black clad special forces unit while the Federation Front described them as death squad and recruited criminal thugs. Now they must fight back instead of evading it.
At dawn, the team readied their trap to lure their enemy company into their ambush in the forest. And one by one, they took them out with sneak attack without alerting them from last to first of one half of the company, proximately 50 of them, and then they ambushed them when they were lured by the tracking device. As they took out the last platoon, they've captured their captain and one survivor, most likely a conscript, and interrogated them.
As they interrogated them, they've learned that the rouge general and the Warlords plan to stage a coup in the city of their new and rouge country if their demands did not met and they will use force with the iron fist. Then suddenly, they were attacked by air attack of enemy helicopter gunship with their reinforcements but they were quickly dodged rocket attacks and fought back. But when Captain Dragunov was hit by rocket attack and knocked unconscious, his dark memory comes back from the gulag where he was been tortured to unlock his psychic power which means he has an Aura but he doesn't know to do it until now. When he woke up, he used his Aura telekinesis to control the enemy gunship and crushed most of the enemy reinforcements.
After they finished the remaining forces of the enemy company, they set off to find and kill all the rebels and the Warlord Commandos in the war-torn city and foil their evil war plan once and for all.
Fighting the Warlords
At the war-torn city, the team must fight their way into the stadium at the northwest of the city but first they must take out those sentry squads and patrols as they split up in units and capture the communication site at the radio station so their commanders and the partisans can monitor the city as well inform the government.
While the team splits in units, the Gorynych Brothers must take out the Warlord Commandos squad unit, the Black Drago Liberation Forces, in separate route in Rambo style. Rafik took out heavy soldiers while Lev killed the enemy lieutenant and his unit in the combat knife fight and Captain Dragunov killed the young enemy scout then he has to fight the big leader of the squad, avenging his young scout's and lieutenant's death but Rafik came to rescue him just in time and wrestled him down then snapped his neck.
As they took out all patrol units and squads and regrouped at the city main square, they received a new mission: they must secure the governmental manciple building where there is a big chance to retrieve the counter-launch codes to destroy the missile before it reaches to the capital city. As they raced to the government building, they battled through into the interior building to the governmental main office building where the corrupt politician is preparing to commit suicide for his failed dream but Captain Dragunov and Captain Ivan stopped him and questioned him for the counter-launch codes but the codes is destroyed before they could get their hands on it. But there is alternative way to stop the missile attack although the codes is destroyed by destroying it with anti-air missile as they rushed to the stadium where the missile launcher is stationed there.
At the stadium, the team have met with heavy resistance outside of their base of operation but they pushed on and crushed the rebels' and the Warlord mercenaries' defense positions in a bloodbath. As they reached into the stadium's soccer field, they encountered the rebel leader and he have launched the missile but Rafik managed to take out the missile in the air. And with that missile is destroyed, they've started the gun battle in the soccer field, taking out all remaining rebel fighters in the stadium until the Loyalist troops arrived and liberated the city as well assisting the team for the request of the Federation Front. As soon as the surviving rebel fighters lay down their weapons and surrendered to the Loyalist government force with mercy, they have also captured the rebel leader for questioning about the connection between the rebels and the Warlords. And with that act of capturing the rebel leader, their names are cleared after they have arrested the rouge general for his act of treason and possible corruption and terrorisms.
The Civil War has ended and the team were paraded in the capital main square for victory celebration to their Heroes' Welcome.
Aftermath of the War
After the Civil War has ended with the tactical decisive victory of the government, Captain Dragunov and his team were rewarded with the Medal of Heroism to their country for stopping the Warlords and crushed the terrorist rebel force completely.
