The Russian Airborne Troops or VDV (from "Vozdushno-Desantnye Voiska", Russian: Воздушно-десантные войска = ВДВ; Air-Landing Forces) is an arm of service of the Russian Military. The VDV was formed in the 1930s prior to World War II. Because they deployed originally from AN-124's they are likely from the 61st Air Army which uses the AN-124 in the same way.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Russian paratroopers are the main enemy faced while playing as Pvt. Ramirez, and appear in all Ranger missions save "S.S.D.D." and "Team Player". The VDV first make their appearance in "Wolverines!", in which they parachute into suburban Virginia and across the East Coast in the first phase of the Russo-American War. The VDV continue to be the main enemy in "Exodus", "Of Their Own Accord", "Second Sun" and "Whiskey Hotel". They are easily recognizable by their red Urban Camouflage uniforms, and many also wear gas masks. The VDV also make an appearance in Special Ops, where they are the enemies in the missions Suspension, Body Count, Big Brother, Homeland Security, Wardriving, and Wreckage.
