Nikolai was a young 18 yr old Russian 'desantnik' when Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979. After ten years of fighting and witnessing the death of many of his comrades, he looked visibly older than he was.
The collapse of communism filled Nikolai's mind with uncertainty, but he decided to stick his guns with the VDV during the lean years, deploying to various autonomous republics that were breaking away. In 1994, Nikolai, now a NCO was again thick in action when Russia invaded Chechnya. Experiences gained from numerious street fightings honed him into a well-oiled mean fighting machine.
Finally in 2000, frustrated with poor co-ordination and support which cost the lives of many of his men, Nikolai decided to throw in the towel and leave his beloved VDV. Travelling around Moscow, Nikolai eventually found a job providing personal security to a rich oil businessman. This was his introduction to the world of PMCs.
Two years later with only a smattering of English, Nikolai flew to USA to join an American Private Security Company. In 2004, Nikolai was deployed back to Afghanistan to provide personal security to high-ranking civilian offcials. It seems events have come full circle for him....
Although civilian hiking boots are more popular, Nikolai has chosen to wear his trusted Russian Para jump boots. He wears a blue and white striped telnyashki and Afghan pakol and shemag to blend in. He is carrying a AK-74 SOPMOD, heavily modified by American accessories.
