Corporal Ryan Balletto is an Auto Rifleman in Fireteam Bravo. Just yesterday he shot five of those "half-baked insurgents" to pieces with his M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW). It is "perfect for suppressing enemy positions" and "has a little bit of a sting to it". He's "just here to follow orders"; he's going to do what he's told - "no back-talk, no drama this time." Balletto is part of the USMC fireteam unit, alongside other specialist members, such as the Scout, Rifleman and Grenadier, in tactical shooter Operation Flashpoint: Red River
You learn more about Cpl. Balletto in this second biography video from Codemasters; the first video
