After the War with Yuri, the Soviets have decided to make the conscript lighter to make them faster. They removed their heavy plating leaving only their uniforms with them. They were faster and more powerful then the Peacemaker, able to kill infantry in 2 shots with their ADK-47.
However, they had all flaws of regular infantry (Natasha etc.).
The Conscript is powerful against most infantry. They can't use Molotov Cocktails however. They are also cowardly enough to surrender instead of dying as seen in Red Wings.
Bronislav, the most powerful Conscript in the game.
