- "We need help! The Germans are advancing on our tank depot at the old tractor factory! Come with me!"
- — Kirelenko, after coming across Lt. Pavelovna
Private Mikael Kirelenko was a Russian soldier who fought in the Battle of Stalingrad during World War II. He is seen in Call of Duty: Finest Hour guiding Lieutenant Tanya Pavelovna and Private Aleksandr Sokolov through the sewers of Stalingrad.
October 3, 1942 Edit
Private Kirelenko was one of several Red Army soldiers defending an old tractor factory—which had been converted into a tank depot—but aggressive German assaults upon the position prompted Commissar Sergei Konstaninov to order Kirelenko to find and bring back reinforcements. Kirelenko made his way through a portion of the city until he came across Lieutenant Tanya Pavelovna, a respected sniper, and Private Aleksandr Sokolov, her personal Spotter. He was able to entice the both of them to return with him to the Factory.
However, the above-ground route back to the Factory had been cut off by the arrival of a Mark IV Panzer, and none of the three- or anyone in the nearby squad they watched get massacred- was suitably armed to eliminate the threat. So Kirelenko had no choice but to lead them down into the sewers.
Once they had gone underground, Kirelenko began to guide them through the labyrinth of tunnels and turns, encountering sporadic German resistance and several Soviet allies along the way.
Beyond that, no more is known of Private Kirelenko.
Kirelenko is strictly an NPC, who is unable to be killed up until the point where he is no longer useful to the plot. This threshold seems to vary- most times, it's up until the party passes through the shaft that separates the two halves of the sewers. But sometimes Kirelenko will die earlier than that, suggesting his usefulness actually ends once you've gone into the sewers.
Even if you somehow manage to keep Kirelenko alive through the entire Sewer maze, he will not come with you to the next mission.
