The President of Russia orders General Boris to launch a nuclear warhead at Moscow, in an attempt to destroy the virus before it spreads throughout the whole country. General Boris rejects and burns the order, cuts communication, and plans to sabotage the warhead so that nobody can launch it. A group of Russian military forces launch an attack on Silo 22 in an attempt to forcefully launch the nuclear warhead. However, General Boris' sabotage causes the entire northern area of Russia to become irradiated.
Sometime later in the outbreak, Russia ends up joining the Coalition. Scouts let General Roman know of the irradiated area that spans over northern Russia.
- A missile launch facility, also known as a nuclear silo, is a vertical cylindrical structure constructed underground, for the storage and launching of missiles. The structures typically have the missile some distance below ground, protected by a large blast door on top. They are usually connected either physically or electronically, or both, to a missile launch control center.
