This volume details the separatist battalions Somalia, Sparta and Vostok in the Donetsk region of the Donbass – the Russian-backed (and now invaded) region comprising Lughansk and Donetsk regions – collectively called The Donbass and re-styled the Lughansk Peoples Republic and the Donetsk Peoples Republic. This volume details the Somali, Vostok and Sparta battalions, as used in the 1st and 2nd battles of Donetsk Airport in 2014/2015, with new rules such as (in)famous commanders, building fires, trench fighting, krasnopol guided rounds, welding projects (dump-truck technical), and ECM and drone strikes.

Used in conjunction with any Ukraine Armed Forces title to re-create the battles along the line-of-contact or to re-create the battle for the Donetsk Airport or any scenarios of ones devising from 2014 right up to the present and the current invasion.
