Danila (Russian: Данила) is Tom's gunsmith who is in charge of weapon manufacturing and managing the ammunition warehouse of Tom's gang.


After meeting with Tom on USS Mayflower, Sam is sent to the armory, where he meets Danila. Danila gives Sam a Universal Detector and explains its functionality. After that, he also issues him a Sammy, a Vladivostok-made rifle constructed to fire very effective incendiary rounds without jamming. Learning that Sam is a former Marine, Danila and another armory worker then prompt Sam to try out his new weapons at a shooting range present in the armory. If Sam manages to hit all the targets, they praise his skills and show respect, but if one or more targets are missed, they suggest Sam to try again.

Danila's fate (same as the rest of Tom's gang) presumably depends on which ending is achieved by the player, as Tom's base built around the submarine is either destroyed along with it, resulting in deaths of most if not all people present there at the time, or preserved.
