CRISIS UKRAINE 2014-Present RUSSIAN FORCES is the first book in the CRISIS UKRAINE trilogy. This volume covers the Russian Army volunteers* who are currently fighting in Ukraine. This book focuses primarily on the 9th Motor Rifle brigade, 18th Guards Motor Rifle Brigade and the 200th Motor Rifle Brigade as those are volunteer* units that have been positively identified as being on Ukrainian Soil. This book can be used for the Ukrainian Civil War of 2014, the Annexation (Invasion) of Crimea and the continued fighting in the Donbas-Luhansk region(s) of Ukraine.

Included in this volume are comprehensive rules for the modern electronic battlefield, including ground surveillance radars, drone cameras, armed drones, IR smoke, Krasnopol Ammunition, upgraded ATGM’s such as the Akaka and the Shturm as well as trench fighting, and upgraded armour for Russian tanks such as the Shotra/Arena package and Kontakt-5 ERA and composite armours!

This book introduces new Russian equipment such as the 2s19 MSTAS-s self-propelled artillery platform, the 2s7 Psion and the TOS-1 Burantino artillery systems; the (infamous) 9k37 BUK Anti-Aircraft Missile System, the Tunguska Self-Propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun and Missile System; the T-90a, the T-80u, the up-armoured T-72bv and the T-62e tanks as well as the BTR-80, BRM-1k, BMP-3 and the Gaz Tigr Armoured Personnel Carriers. Along with modern anti-tank rounds, artillery rounds (such as Rocket Assisted projectiles) and a new threat for the battlefield: DRONES!

Using this book you can field any modern Russian Army force –not just for the current crisis in Ukraine but for many other what-if scenarios such as World War III, Invasion of Poland and other nightmare scenarios of your devising!

After purchasing Crisis Ukraine - Russian Forces, I realize that the PDF is password protected, so I'm unable to print the document out (or any selected pages of it). Was this the intention of the author, and if so, then this should be noted for any other potential buyers to be able to consider and understand before they purchase.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
