The Workers' and Peasants' Red Army, or Red Army for short, was the paramilitary force that fought for communist control of the Russian Empire. From its early beginnings in the Russian Civil War, the group evolved into the standard fighting force of the Soviet Union.
The red symbolizes the blood shed by workers who fought against capitalism. Under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin and his associates, they were able to defeat the White Movement, Russian Provisional Government, and other Allied forces and preserve the communist state.
The low point in the early ages of the Red Army was during their service in World War I against the Central Powers. Due to the poor economy and industry, many soldiers would go without rifles and used knives, pistols, axes, or even their own bare hands. Vladimir Lenin immediately withdrew troops and turned into a neutral nation.
However, during World War II the Soviet Union was again pitted against their rival, Germany. Now with a stabilized economy and training from stronger generals and commissars, the force evolved into an effective fighting force that helped bring the end to Nazi tyranny.
During the Cold War, the Red Army became a standing army, policing Soviet satellites. Once the Soviet Union fell in 1991, so did the Red Army which was replaced by Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

(Arise! All who will not consent to slavery! Let us craft our new Great Wall out of our very flesh and blood! The Chinese nation faces its direst hour, All are forced to put forth their final battle cry. Arise! Arise! Arise! Our million hearts beating as one, brave the enemy's fire, march on! Brave the enemy's fire, march on! March on! March on! On!)
An old Chinese Communist soldier is listening to a choir of Chinese boys and girls singing the national anthem of the newly founded, People's Republic of China over the radio. He recalls the days when comrade Mao placed his hand on his shoulder and told him the revolutionary will always live on during the Long March. A fellow Communist steps in and pours tea into his cup.
"Do you remember the days of the revolution?" asks the old Chinese-man with tears in his eyes.
"Yes, sir." recalls the middle-aged soldier. A bullet pierces through a window and destroys the radio. The two Communists spring to their feet and grab the nearest weapons, a Shanxi Type 17 and Chiang Kai-shek rifle.
"To arms!" shouts the old Communist. Five Red Army members charge toward the abandoned Chinese weapons factory. The leader makes a hand signal to tell two of his men to move toward the back of the building. A Chinese soldier fires his Chiang Kai-shek and kills a Red Army member. The Red Army leader fires his PPSh-41 and kills the Chinese soldier. The old Chinese soldier fires his Shanxi Type 17 at the approaching Russians. One is hit several times but lives. The Russian leader fires back with his PPSh-41 and wounds the old man. He stumbles back and calls for his men to reinforce him. Two CPC members pull the old man out of the crossfire while one fires his MP 18. Two of the Red Army soldiers are successful in entering the factory through the backdoor.
"Die scum!" shout the soldiers. Both fire their Nagant M1895s killing one of the Chinese soldiers. The old man fires his Shanxi Type 17 and takes out one of the Russians. He tells one of his comrades to look for the other Russian. The old man limps away into another room, sits down, and bandages his wound. He know he will die this day. He reloads his Shanxi and takes out his Butterfly Sword, waiting for death. Meanwhile, the Chinese Communist located the Red Army revolutionary and they engage in deep crossfire. A Red Army member breaks through a door behind the Chinese soldier. He fires his Mosin-Nagant and the bullet takes off a chunk of his head. A Chinese soldier hears the gunfire in the room and steps in with his MP 18 firing in full automatic. He takes out both Russians. The Red Army steps crashes through a a shaft and empties out his Nagant M1895 into the Chinese man. He is still alive. The Russian charges him with his Soviet Machete swinging. He decapitates the man. He walks out looking for his last victim.
"I am in here, Russian dog!" yells the dying, elderly man. He fires his Shanxi Type 17 through the wooden wall. He misses his shots and runs out of ammo. The Russian steps into the room to discover an old Chinese man sitting on a chair bleeding with an empty pistol in one hand and a Butterfly sword in the other.
"Leninism is superior!" he shouts.
WINNER: RED ARMY
The experts believed that the Red Army won due to a combination of better weaponry, as well as superior training.
Battle vs. US National Guard (by Omnicube1)Edit
No battle written
WINNER: US NATIONAL GUARD
This was a very close battle. Both sides had great rifles and near-equal training. What tipped this battle in the National Guard's favor was having better Snipers and Sidearms.
Battle vs. US Army (by Random man 16)Edit
Right after the victory of the Soviet Union over Nazi Germany in May of 1945, a Unit of Red Army soldiers are occupying a ruined city in Germany. Nearby, There is a small group of U.S. Army soldiers that are approaching the city from the west. The American soldiers are on a mission to take German wonder weapon secrets from a factory inside the city so the Soviets can't use it. There is a small squad of six Red Army soldiers guarding the factory. When the six American soldiers get close to the factory a Red Army soldier spots them, and yells "Злоумышленники!" (English:Intruders!) One of the American soldiers shoots him through the heart with an M1 Garand, and the Red army soldier's body falls to the ground. The Rest of fallen soldier's comrades hear his alert, and quickly arrive at the scene.

The U.S. Army Soldier raises his KA-BAR up and yells in victory. This battle will be one of the incidents that fuel cold war aggression between the United States and the Soviet Union.
Winner: U.S. Army
The experts believe when it comes to two warriors from similar eras, the winning factors are miniscule, but they matter. The semi-auto M1 gave the U.S. Army that slight tip in an otherwise closely matched battle where SMG's and grenades are closely matched. Up-close the Army had a clear advantage with a superior pistol and knife, and while the Russians are determined and very good marksmen, they simply aren't bringing the stopping power (.45 ACP did superbly well in an urban enviornment like the ones the Russians where used to fighting in), rate of fire or logistical powers to win them the day - sure their weapons may be reliable, but if they're undersupplied they're gonna be in trouble if they don't have enough bullets to shoot. The U.S. Army didn't have that issue, and along with the M1 Garand and Thompson combined to make one powerful punch, this is what gave them the victory.

Battle vs. Chinese People's Volunteer Army (by Battlefan237)Edit
Five Red Army soldiers got lost in a remote forest located in far east . The forest, however , was the base camp of a group of PVA soldiers. One PVA soldier who had been assigned to keep guard of the site so that he could inform the rest when any possible threats emerged. The soldier, who had just noticed the Red Army group, quickly kept the outlook of the Russians in mind and rushed back to the camp . ‘班长，附近来了一队可疑的人。【Captain, a group of suspicious men has just came into the woods.】’ The head PVA ordered every PVA to stay ready for a possible threat, he himself took out a binocular that were taken from a US scout , and scanned through the woods. Meanwhile, the head Russian gazed at the footstep left on the mud by the PVA scout, and decided to follow them. That's not very long before they encountered with two PVA soldiers, one armed with an rifle, the other one was on SG 43 machine gun, at the backside of the PVA camp. One Chinese immediately grabbed up his Mosin-Nagant and pointed it at the Russians. 'О нет, мы сталкиваемся с некоторыми враждебными партизанами！【Oh no, they are hostile!】' A red army soldier took out his pistol, but he wasn't quickly enough for the Chinese machine gunner who reacted quickly and opened fire with his SG43 and sprayed down the pistol man. Other Russians sheltered themselves behind stones and large rocks. One sprayed his PPSH41 at the Mosin-Nagant PVA soldier and killed him instantly. The Chinese captain heard the noise and quickly rushed into the camp and led two Chinese soldiers to assist the machine gunner. The Russian head was an experienced warrior who had fought in many battles-- this gave him the ability to remain calm and carefully observed the whole battlefield by using a pocket mirror to reflect. In this way, he caught the clear location of the machine gun. He lit and a Molotov Cocktail, quickly threw it onto the hill. The cocktail which precisely landed behind the gun caused the Chinese man to burn. With fire flaming all over his body, the gunner screamed and jumped up as soon as the head Russian aimed his Mosin-Nagant at him and shot his chest. 'Да здравствует ленинская!【Long live Lenin!】' yelled the head Russian. He led his fellowmen into the camp. The Chinese captain had just witnessed the death of the gunner, being furious, he asked his men to hide behind one camp and prepare to launch a sudden attack against the Russians. Two Russians were busy dealing with their own 1910 type machine gun and installing it in the center of a small square , so the head decided to enquire into the camp with the PPSH41 man. The PPSH41 man took a glance at the tent, signaling the head that nothing was wrong. Then, a Chinese armed with a PPS-43 emerged from the back and yelled ‘去死吧!【Die！】’ The poor Russian had no chance to fire back, only to be shot down. The head Russian tried to defend himself by grabbing up his mosin, but that couldn't match with the Chinese when the PVA captain revealed the sniper function of the same type of rifle. He shot the Red Army leader in right in the head from the other side of the tent, causing the Russian to fall down. The Chinese marched back to reoccupy the camp. When they arrived at the square , the machine gun had just been put up. The Russians opened fire with the M1910 . The Chinese captain quickly dodged by bending behind a rock. One of his fellow men received ten shots and got slaughtered under the massive bullets rain. The other one threw out a M-24 and bombed the machine gun apart alongside the gunner. The captain and his last man quickly dashed towards the last Russian who'd been reloading his rifle. Realizing that he's at a bad position, he ran away into the woods. The two Chinese pursued chasing. The Russian found a perfect place and aimed his Mosin at the m24 Chinese who forgot to take caution. The bullet whipped across the air and hit the PVA soldier in the chest. He gasped and kneeled down, coughing out blood. The Russian the reloaded the gun, but was shocked on the fact that the Chinese captain was missing. He became anxious. He scanned the woods by using eyes in haste, hoping to find the captain. What he didn't know was that the Chinese captain had already snuck behind him while all his attention were focused on the m24 PVA man. ‘看这儿，洋鬼子。【Look here, foreign scum.】’ The captain yelled and shot the Russian in the back with his tt-30 pistol. Witnessing the Russian falling down the rockhill, the PVA captain smiled and shouted ‘胜利了！【Victory!】’ loudly.
Winner：Chinese People's Volunteer Army
Though the Red Army were more experienced warriors, not only did their weapons pulled them back in this battle, but their lack of fighting against guerillas gave the Chinese PVA credits to launch unexpected attacks. Also, the Chinese had faced tougher enemies than them. So that resulted in the victory of Chinese warriors.
