Campaign Background

The year is 1995. After the Soviets were driven out in 1982 a UN peacekeeping mission was set up in Nogova, Finland and NATO participated in it. The NFOR forces are still at Nogova, things have been pretty calm lately but there are rumors that the communist partisans led by Radom Tosev are making a comeback to Nogova, there are also unconfirmed rumors that they are being supported by Russian Federation army hardliners led by his somewhat distant relative Vladimir Tosev. The Russian economy has not shown signs of improvement despite the fall of communism almost 5 years ago, large military cutbacks have increased the support of subversive elements in the Russian army and the situtation is starting to become even worse...
