Colonel Kovalsky is the commander of Operation Fairway in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.

Call of Pripyat Edit

Colonel Kovalsky is the leader of the STINGRAY group and one of STINGRAY 1's crew. After the helicopter crashed near the minefield in Yanov, his crew met a stalker named Guide who led them safely to Pripyat. He gives the player all of Pripyat's main quests as well as few optional quests. He seems to be a brave leader - despite the obvious failure of the operation he still pushes for Pripyat when the opportunity presents itself, and after taking over the Laundromat he regularly sends out patrols into the Monolith controlled city. In the final mission during the Pripyat Evacuation, he puts his life on the line and fights alongside his men with his Tunder S14.

Kovalsky is shown to value life more than his profession, as evidenced by the fact that he allows the stalkers Vano, Strider, Garry and Strelok (and possibly Zulu, had he not refused to stay with Major Degtyarev after he found out his affiliation to the military) to stay in the Laundromat along him and the rest of the stranded unit - eventually also letting Strelok be evacuated. One of his main concerns during all the quests he gives is the fate and safety of the men he sends out.

He survives the evacuationEdit

Kovalsky was questioned by the military high command about Operation Fairway's failure. After a number of investigations and with the top brass unable to make him the scapegoat of the failure, he was given an honorable discharge from the military.

He dies during the evacuationEdit

Kovalsky is killed during the evacuation. He is remembered only by a few faded photographs to remind Ukraine about the sacrifices he and his many men made to understand the zone.
