The Thugs are the lowest rank of the Russian Mafia, and can be found anywhere within the range of the Mafia headquarters, and even acoss the entire North Korean country. They usually carry Assault Rifles or the Type 85 Sub-Machine Gun, and are efficient killers. They are typically encountered out on the field, performing tasks such as defending locations, scouting the area with a Mafia Technical, or other simple duties. They wear black jackets and a dark orange shirt underneath and grey pants and are always seen with a balaclava. There are some missions for the Mafia where you will be accompanied by a small amount of thugs whose role is usually to drive a vehicle that the merc secures and drive it back to the HQ.
