RU-20 Bodyguards
The Ru-20 Bodyguard is an infantry soldier in the Russian Ground Forces and the elite formation Spetsnaz Guard Brigades, and are referred to as drones due to their duties.

OverviewEdit

Instead of deploying sentry drones, the SGB uses Ru-20 "Bodyguard" Platoons for menial guard duties. Bodyguard units are not as well armed as their Spetsnaz counterparts, but do receive slightly more training than a typical Russian army soldier. They are in the same formation as riflemen meaning there are 20 of them rather than 4 average drones you get with other command units. Along with that they can also get put behind cover meaning ever farther rage, attack power, and defend power than a combat drone. You can also see them as sentries meaning they might need a lift from some Cockroach APC's. Their main weakness, as with force recon infantry, is their lack of shielding, in which they are easy prey for anyone brave enough to fight.

Behind the ScenesEdit

It is unclear what RU-20 stands for. For all puposes, these are conventionally-equipped human soldiers. The concept art above indicates they use AK-74s (curiously missing their characteristic muzzle devices), while wearing little body armor. Their helmets may or may not be modern kevlar ballistic helmets, but certainly lag behind special-forces grade hardware. They do not seem to wear armored vests, although they could, like Spetsnaz, wear them under their field fatigues.
