“KILLING ZONE DEPLOYED”

- TACHANKA

 

Please keep in mind that operators are a work in progress, and information is still subject to change by launch.

 


PROFILE


Alexsandr Senaviev is an iconoclast who came of age in a pre-glasnost red army family and has retained an interest in soviet machinery and weaponry. During operations, he deploys a signature vintage mounted machine gun that he has restored and maintained with loving care.

GAMEPLAY


Tachanka is a good choice if you want to block access to an area like a corridor or doorway: place the mounted LMG to face towards the direction you expect the enemies and you now have a strong line of fire against them. Be careful though: you are limited in your movements while manning the mounted LMG so don't get surprised from the rear.

 

 

Once deployed, anyone can use the LMG, so be sure to communicate the location where you place it to your teammates! Also, it's a good idea to coordinate with a teammate to place a deployable shield in front of it, providing extra cover for the operator manning the mounted LMG. Use the barbed wires in your loadout and place them in the line of fire: if an enemy gets caught in them, he'll be easier to pin down! Remember, that anyone can use the LMG once it has been deployed, including hostile operators.

UNIQUE GADGET


 

A collector of antique weapons, Senaviev prefers to use original parts rather than modern variants from Somalia, Libya and Syria, to maintain his RP-46. He utilizes the international collector’s market for replacements or will mill his own components when parts cannot be located or are not cost effective to acquire.
