Strategy[edit]

As the RP-46 Degtyaryov Machine Gun can only be used when interacted with directly, and due to its static nature, players nowadays only ever pick Tachanka to BM their opponents.

Historically Tachanka did however have a strategical purpose, albeit primarily on console. Due do the recoil of the SMG-11 on console, Smoke players typically used the FMG-9, rather than the M590A1 shotgun. However, there was still a need to remodel the sites on defense, and so Tachanka's RP-46 Degtyaryov Machine Gun was used instead to allow Smoke to run the FMG-9.

Commonly picked sites include
  • Hereford Base
    • 1st Floor Kitchen and 1st Floor TV Room
    • Basement Briefing Room and Basement Armory
  • Consulate
    • 2nd Floor Meeting Room and 2nd Floor Consulate Office
  • Bank
    • 1st Floor Tellers' Office and 1st Floor Archives
  • Clubhouse
    • 1st Floor Bar and 1st Floor Stock Room

Lore[edit]

Background[edit]

Born into a Red Army family, Senaviev enlisted when he turned eighteen. After the Soviet Union pulled out of Afghanistan, Senaviev was transferred to the Spetsnaz shortly before the collapse of the Union.

Psychological Report[edit]

Calm in crises. Alex harbors a joyous, if acerbic outlook. He has a limited social filter, which has gotten him into trouble in the past.

Training[edit]

  • Soviet Army
  • Spetsnaz

Relevant Experience[edit]

  • Soviet War in Afghanistan
  • Chechnya
  • Georgia
  • Ukraine

Notes[edit]

A collector of Soviet-era weaponry, he prefers simple designs proven to be effective, over the modern experimental technology and warfare.
