Question for Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Okay. I am new to this question asking. I have beet MGS3: Snake Eater three times already, some of the plot is confusing, but my main question is as such, General Raikov (the general you must put in the locker and take his clothes to get to Sokolov) is G. Raikov Raiden from MGS2: Sons Of Liberty? Well in MGS2 raiden finds out he was part of some military ordinance. I know that the MGS 1 & 2 are set in the 21 century or such. But MGS3 Snake Eater ios set int he 1960's, meaning that Raikov could be Raiden before he did what he did with the colonel and with the Plant chapter in MGS2... The reason I'm asking is in MGS 2 raiden gets his nards grabed by the prez, and when Naked Snake dresses up as Raikov, (Raiden?) again he gets his nards grabbed. And when you go back to the facility you go to where you put raikov and there is a pic of raiden on the locker door (Inside.) .. Now is he Raiden or is that just dang Irnoic, played out by the designers just to weld the first three together?

The Plot Is Supposed To Be About Beginnings, Like "Naked Snake" Is Big Boss (The Genetic Father Of Solid & Liquid Snake) And Raidenavich Raikov Just LOOKS Like Raiden, This Was Used To So That Raiden Wouldn't Be Just Forgotten As A Character In My Opinion.

And, This Is 40 Years Before, And Raiden Looks About 20-25.

No, that is not Raiden. Yes, it does in fact look like Raiden. Could Major Raikov be a distant relative to Raiden? I do not know, but there is a possibility that he might be. Anyway, the main reason that Hideo Kojima decided to make him look like Raiden was so that people who did not like playing as Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2 could relieve some stress, and beat him up. I mean come on, didn't it feel good when you punched the guy, or shot him in the leg?

The military ordinance that Raiden was a part of was called the Force 21 trials, this was a few years before the Big shell incident in Metal Gear Solid 2. If Raiden was around in Metal Gear Solid 3, than in Metal Gear Solid 2, he would have been around 70 years old.

Hope this helps.
