A general information of Sigma's Armed Forces sub factions.

Posted by on

In Red Counter-Strike, Yuri is no longer referred to the faction and leader at the same time. To avoid the discrepancy; the name Yuri is only referred to the leader and the side that that is composed of various sub faction or more precisely the armed forces that is dispersed into various military sub branches that Yuri command is called Sigma. To which "Yuri-Side" is now called Sigma's Armed Forces (SAF) or just Sigma for short. Sigma's sub-branches or sub-factions are the following:

Thanks :D

I do not intend to make larger images of the insignias since their will not use for them. I had just added rank names since I largely missed out on those.

Sigma’s Cobra Corps is sounds like a Yuri equivalent of the Cult of Pleasure from Total Warhammer 2 combined with Black Hand from Kane's Wrath

The Lunar Command is basically Iron Sky meets Galactic Empire from Star Wars (funny enough Udo Kier, Yuri's actor was in Iron Sky)

Experimental Combat Group 635 - Wolfenstein, get it?

Sigma’s Iron Vanguard - Basically the Wehrmacht from COH up to 11

Sigma's Field Army is GLA, duh.
