The Soviet Union (Russian: Советский Союз, Sovetsky Soyuz), officially the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (Russian: Союз Советских Социалистических Республик, Soyuz Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh Respublik), was a socialist state that extended throughout Central Asia, the Caucasus, and Eastern Europe. It composed of 15 different members, with Russia as the administrative state. It existed from 1922 to 1991, when it was split up into several different republics, most notably Russia.
In Battlefield 1942, the Soviet Union is one of the Allied factions. The Red Army fights against the Wehrmacht in four historical battles on the Eastern Front, three of which (Kharkov, Stalingrad, and Kursk) fall within the Soviet Union's own borders.

While the nation of the Soviet Union (at the time of the Operation Red Tide set in 1919, the official name was the Russian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic) was not recognized until after World War I, the Russian Civil War that preceded it is depicted in the Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar expansion, along with the communist Red Army and the opposing White Army faction.
