Aleksei Vasilii Guba was a rogue Soviet general and the main antagonist in the Operation Flashpoint series. His statue is located across multiple locations in the small province of South Zagoria in Chernarus.

Background[ | ]

Excerpt from the official Bohemia Interactive Community Wiki: "The little background information there is on Guba reveals that he spent five years as a Commandant in one of Stalin’s Siberian gulags, where he earned the nickname 'The Dentist'. The origin of this nickname is still unknown. Under Brezhnev he moved to the KGB and we lost track of him. Rumor has it he was running a special interrogation unit in Moscow.

Three years later after his defeat on Nogova, in the uncertainty that spread after Mikhail Gorbachev came to power in the Soviet Union in 1985, Guba took it upon himself to promote the 'old ideals' which he still firmly held to. With the well-equipped Third Army at his command he struck out from his base on Kolgujev and invaded Everon. The NATO forces based on nearby Malden were taken by surprise but, under the leadership of Colonel Blake eventually triumphed, and Major James Gastovski captured Guba as he tried to escape."[1]
