Colonel Valentin Ershov of the 44th Assault Spetsnaz spent most of his life on a farm. He is an excellent marksman and is surprisingly soft-spoken for a member of the SGB. His style of command blends efficient attacks with a keen understanding of good defensive strategy. He was drafted into the Russian Army during the First Chechen War. He made his way into the ranks of the SGB quickly and has commanded SGB units throughout Eastern Europe.
