Three years after the conflict in Chernarus depicted in the original Arma 2, a new conflict has matured in the Green Sea region, and US army-led coalition forces are being sent to Takistan to quickly restore peace and prevent further civilian casualties.
You will be able to test yourself in the roles of various US army soldiers: from a simple infantryman to a special forces soldier, pilot or tanker in the new part of the famous series of military simulators for PC from Bohemia Interactive.
Thanks to 10 years of experience and continuous work on the engine, Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead boasts the most realistic open-field battles in the world. It simulates the physics of the real world, the interaction of materials, the temperature of objects, complementing all this with the change of day and night in real time and dynamic wind, as well as various weather effects of the environment.
