Chernarus Defense Forces have a number of independent ground units:
47th Separate Air Assault Battalion
48th Separate Air Assault Battalion
49th Separate Air Assault Battalion
Each air assault battalion is organized as any CDF ground unit. Their training is identical to that delivered to any light brigade's 3rd battalion in that they are special operations capable, and are airmobile and parachute trained. The air assault battalions carry no fire support other than 82mm mortars. They must rely on air support for ground interdiction and for transport.
The 47th and 48th Air Assault battalions are temporarily attached to the Chernarus Coastal Operations Group strategic formation. They are on 24 hour deployment, which means they can be anywhere in Chernarus territories within 24 hours after a readiness check.
The 49th Air Assault Battalion is temporarily attached to Chernarus 1st Army Corps, for operations in 1st Corps area of responsibility, namely Chernarus, Utes, Moschniy, and Miroslavl.
Chernarus also has three independent Cossack staffed combat regiments:
15th Independent Cossack Mechanized Cavalry Regiment (Berezino)
19th Independent Cossack Mechanized Cavalry Regiment (Atamen Krogryzh)
27th Independent Cossack Mechanized Cavalry Regiment (Hetman Shavchenko)
These units have two motorized rifle battalions and one tank battalion each. They are Cossack staffed with Cossack officers and cadre. They have no organize fire support assets, so they must rely on assigned artillery or corps artillery for fire support.
