The Russian Ground Forces are the land forces of the Russian Federation, formed from parts of the collapsing Soviet Army in 1992. The formation of these forces posed economic challenges after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and required reforms to professionalize the force during the transition. While the Russian Ground Forces in their present form are only about twenty years old, Russian officers trace their antecedents' history through the Imperial Russian era back to the time of Kievan Rus'. Since 1992, the Ground Forces have withdrawn many thousands of troops from former Soviet garrisons abroad, while remaining extensively committed to the Chechen Wars, peacekeeping, and other operations in the Soviet successor states (what is known in Russia as the "near abroad"). The most recent clash was the 2008 South Ossetia war with Georgian forces. They currently have 360,000 active personnel including the Russian Airbourne Troops. The branches of services include motorized rifles, tanks, artillery and rocket forces, troop air defense special corp, military units and logistical establishments.

"Это смотрит, враг обнаружил нас. Находитесь на тревоге." says the Russian Commander.
"Резервуар! Резервуар! Представьте резервуар!" yells the Commander. Soon, a T-90 tank starts crawling toward the Rangers, firing it weapons.

The Ranger raises his fist in the air and yells "Rangers lead the way!".
Winner: US Army Rangers
Neither group was immensely far ahead of the other in terms of weaponry. What really decided this match was that this was a special forces group vs standard infantry. The US Army Rangers had far better training, and took this match.

US National Guard – Russian Ground Forces
In a war ravaged suburb neighbourhood in America, inside the house, a US National Guard Captain, a sniper and 10 riflemen relax and settle in as a rifleman with a radio attempts to contact command and the Captain and others plot their next move on a map placed on the house’s kitchen table, the sniper watches the road in a window upstairs.
Down the road at the start of the neighbourhood, a Russian Ground Forces Team leader, his marksman and 10 rifleman walk down the road alert for contact as they attempt to return to their F.O.B, the American sniper spots the group and whispers to a rifleman, “Contact, Contact, 10 plus foot mobiles, tell the Captain”, the rifleman walks down the stairs quickly and into the kitchen and interrupts the Captain’s work. “Sir, snipers spotted 10 plus foot mobiles, looks like Russians”, “The Captain looks up, “Everyone to arms, find windows and holes and wait for my call”, All the riflemen grab their M4A1’s and M16A4’s and move to select holes and windows throughout the house, the Captain and 2 riflemen move the kitchen window at the front of the house , 2 move to the front living room window, 2 move to upstairs windows in a bedroom and 4 Rifleman move to the front door of the house and stand by to storm out and engage the enemy.

You two and you four at the front door, with me!” the group of 6 exit the house and move toward the Russian’s house, they pass the empty house separating the two occupied buildings in a line and enter the front garden of the Russian’s house, however, as they do, 3 Russians in the front living room spot them approaching the house and move to the window and open fire, they hit the American behind the Captain 11-11 and the 5 remaining Americans return fire, hitting a Russian rifleman 11-10, “Get to cover!”, the Captain shouts, the Americans run toward the front of the house and take cover against the building so the Russians cannot hit them, an American pulls out a M67 grenade and throws it through the window, it explodes muffling the screams of the 2 Russians 11-9, alerted by this, the Russian team leader orders 4 to go and look outside the front door, as 1 Russian opens the front door, he sees an American looking through the window from outside and fires hitting him in the back 10-9, the other American turns to this and return fire hitting the Russian at the front door 10-8, now aware that there that the sniper was correct, the Captains radios all the remaining riflemen in the house, “Go out the back door of the house and storm the Russian house from their yard”, the 5 riflemen leave the house through the back door and one by one climb over the back yard fence before approaching the Russian house.

As the yard shootout continues, the Russian team leader abandons his map work to get out of the area and joins his riflemen, as he does, an American rifleman leans out and fires through a hole in the fence, he fires several shots of his M4A1 and they successfully hit a Russian rifleman whom falls back overwhelmed by the bullets 5-3, in retaliation to this a Russian rifleman pulls out a RGO Hand Grenade and throws over the fence, it lands behind one of the American riflemen behind cover and explodes killing him 4-3, knocking the other two Americans back and blasting a hole in the fence where he stood, the Russian team leader and his riflemen walk through the hole and into the yard of the empty house where the two remaining American lay stunned, as the team leader draws his MP-443 to execute the Americans, one of his riflemen is hit in the head 4-2 by a sniper round from the American sniper, he re-bolts his rifle and slips back and puts the barrel through a hole in the fence and lines up the Team Leader’s head, however the Team Leader begins spray wildly at the fence with his pistol and the other rifleman joins him in this, the sniper attempts to take cover but he is hit in the shoulder then head 3-2, the team leader turns back and shoots the first American rifleman in the head 2-2 then the other 1-2, his MP-443 slide locks back and as the Team Leader gets out his next magazine to reload his pistol suddenly a stunned and wounded American Captain appears through the fence, he fires his M9 wildly hitting the Russian Rifleman in the back 1-1, he aims his M9 at the Team Leader but he sprints at the Captain and punches him in the face making the Captain drop his M9, the Captain retaliates by grabbing the Team Leaders other arm as he attempts to swing again, he pulls the Team Leader arm toward him and swings at the Team Leader in the process, chipping him in the jaw and knocking him to floor, the team leader attempts to reach for the M9 on the floor but the Captain picks it up and fires the pistol, hitting the Russian team leader in the head, 1-0 the American Captain staggers back, shocked by the events that have just happened and begins to mourn for the loss of his comrades and friends.
US National Guard are the winner, they have been outvoted my the Russian Ground Troops due to their better weaponary and the crucial fact that the Russians are attacking them on their homeland where they most likely trained, this was a close match and hand grenades at the right times played a crucial moment with both sides but in the end, the US National Guard took this by a thin chance.
