Colonel Yuri Tankayev of the 35th Armored Spetsnaz couldn't have a more appropriate name. He is a gregarious man who places great faith in the ability of massed armor attacks. Unsurprisingly, he is a lifelong tanker who found a place in the 4th Guards "Kantemirovskaya" Tank Division, an elite armored division of the Russian Ground Forces. His entire military career has been spent with the 4th and his placement with the Spetsnaz took a large amount of convincing.
