Sergei Brolosk was already prepared. Mostly. This op was something he never considered one of his favorites. It required stealth and small arms. Sure, if needed, the old Russian could perform well under those circumstances, but he always preferred the "blowing things up" kinds of operations. Nevertheless, his equipment was ready. Packing a (capitalist made) M4 SOPMOD and a (capitalist made) M9 pistol, he was running with the most basic loadout he has ever seen in his life. Sure, American guns were pretty good. But they just didn't have flair. Basic was Sergei's word for it all. "I am ready," he confirmed to Slade, while comparing how much larger his hand was than the M9's grip.
