The Russian Airborne Troops (also known as Spetsnaz in multiplayer) are an elite unit serving under the fictional Ultranationalist Russian government in the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, they are active in the year 2016.

As an elite army branch, they are well equipped. However, they are strangely designed with many odd pieces of equipment. Firstly, they are depicted with a Ukrainian helmet (Kaska 2M Helmet) instead of Russian one (this is possibly due to developer's mistake or intentionall design choice). They wear obsolete equipment such as GP-5 gas masks. The most interesting item in their design is the fictional red/black/gray/white camouflaged uniforms. The camouflage itself is named "Urban Camouflage", and while it is fictional it seems to be based on the VSR 3-TsV camouflage used by the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, the only differences between the two is that the urban camo has red instead of orange, and has additional white color apparently based on the commercial "red" M81 camo. The most appropriate and authentic piece of equipment in this design is the brown Gorka-R uniform worn by some of the models.

The following is a list of the equipment used by the Russian Airborne Troops in game (the gear varies between the different character models):
