A Spetsnaz commander was deployed into Northern Kabul in Afghanistan during the 1980s, as part of the Soviet's Scorched Earth Operation.

Biography

The Spetsnaz detachment commander took control of Shago Village with a Spetsnaz GRU recon detail,[1] as part of his secret involvement in the Scorched Earth Operation. Because he posed a huge threat to the Mujahideen forces in Afghanistan, the West hired Diamond Dogs to eliminate him.[2] Despite his rank, he was disguised as a common soldier though he still wore a red beret.[3] The Diamond Dogs subcommander Kazuhira Miller was hesitant to kill him, since he believed the commander's skills would prove very useful to Diamond Dogs, but nonetheless complied and allowed Venom Snake to choose his method of eliminating him, barring those relating to putting him to sleep or knocking him unconscious and leaving it at that.[4][5] Venom Snake eventually located the commander's position. After bypassing the security detail and getting into his office, he proceeded to neutralize him.

He was also assumed to have been responsible for the extermination of the Hamid fighters at Da Smasei Laman, although it was later revealed that the XOF's Parasite Unit was actually responsible for the attack.

Personality

Although the commander obeyed every order without question, he refused to kill civilians under any circumstances, giving the pragmatic reason of killing civilians would actually worsen the conflict needlessly. He even stated if a superior ordered him to kill a civilian, he would kill his superior instead.[6]

Behind the scenes

The Spetsnaz commander is a key character in Episode 3 of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, "A Hero's Way." In it, the player has to eliminate him either by killing him, Fultoning him, or placing him onboard a chopper. If the player proceedes to recruit him instead, Miller will note that he'll tell their client that the commander has been sent to "a place outside of heaven," indirectly alluding to Outer Heaven.[7] He first appeared in the E3 2015 gameplay demo for the game.

If Venom Snake interrogates the commander, he'll deny any involvement with the extermination of the Hamid fighters, implying that the XOF's Parasite Unit was actually responsible for the attack and that the Killer Bee missile launcher was hidden there. He also swears that he and his forces never actually killed any of the villagers during his Scorched Earth Operations when accused of it.[8]

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller (radio): You have arrived at the objective. Your target should be somewhere in that outpost. And don't forget, he has a Spetsnaz recon detail with him. Keep your guard up.

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller : Farming villages in southern Wakhan have been subjected to a strategic bombing campaign the past several weeks. The damage is spreading. It's part of the Soviet's scorched earth operation aimed at wiping out the guerrillas. The target this time is the commander of a Spetsnaz detachment. He's been key to the operation's success. People say this guy's responsible for annihilating the Mujahideen at Da Smasei Laman - the Hamid fighters - overnight. He's a tough, experienced commander. Don't underestimate him. The order from my client in the West is to shoot on sight - they want him out of the picture for good. Sorry, Boss. This one's purely business. Wet work - a hit on a commanding officer of the Soviet military. Nothing personal. We're only doing this because it gets us one step closer to our goal.

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller (radio): The target is camped out down in that village, dressed as an ordinary soldier.

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller (radio): Your target is a Spetsnaz detachment commander. Your orders are to take him out. With skills like his, it would be a shame to waste him, but I'll leave the method up to you. Boss, make your way over to Da Shago Kallai and eliminate the target.

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller (radio): Boss, I gotta say, it would be a waste to kill him. But putting him to sleep doesn't count as eliminating him, neither does knocking him out.

    Spetsnaz commander: Word is that the Hamid fighters at Da Smasei Laman have been annihilated. It seems there were civilians among them, too. There are rumors within our forces that it was our handiwork. These rumors are utterly false. My comrades. The orders we receive are absolute. We stay true to the mission. If they tell us "Burn the village," we burn it. To crush the dushman, for the Motherland. But remember this: Never does that include murdering civilians. If we drag them into this, their resentment will only worsen this conflict. If a superior told me to kill a civilian... I would kill him instead. For that I am prepared. And I hope you all are, too. If you agree with me, make yourself known.

    Spetsnaz commander: "We burned a bunch of villages... but I swear we didn't kill the villagers". "Da Smasei Laman...? I had nothing to do with it!". "This area is controlled by... an unknown group...". "There's something hidden...".
