Jagged Alliance 2 Edit

Official descriptionEdit

"Ivan, a former highly decorated Red Army Major, joined the organization over three years ago on a freelance assignment. Despite serious difficulties communicating in English, he took the mercenary world by storm, breaking all kill-rate records and tallying up the kind of stats that perhaps only he himself is capable of breaking. Ivan himself says it best, 'gun, all gun, like finger on hand.' In order to improve his relationship with commanders, Ivan has enrolled in an "English as a second language" course."
