The Bratva, or the Brotherhood, arrived in the '80s as scouts for the Brighton Beach Mafia. They are better organized than their LA counterparts and hide within the Jewish population. San Francisco is one of the centers of money laundering operations via Russia/United States, and they run brothels and control one of the major cab companies, given SF has only four investigators with the City Transit Agency.
- Level 1: One gunman armed with handgun and one gunman armed with submachine gun.
- Level 2: One armored gunman armed with assault rifle and one enforcer armed with an ASTGH12 shotgun.
- Level 3: Two enforcers with U-100 light machine guns.
- The Bratva sport black and white colors in a similar style to the German company Adidas. Adidas manufactured sportswear for the Soviet Olympics team during the 1980 Moscow Olympics. Adidas clothing has since become extremely popular in Russia.
