Three years after the conflict in Chernarus, portrayed in the original Arma 2, a new flashpoint explodes in the Green Sea Region. Coalition forces led by the US Army are deployed to Takistan to quickly restore peace and prevent further civilian casualties.

You will enlist into various roles within the US Army, from basic infantrymen, through special operatives, to pilots and tank crew in this new installment in the award winning line up of military simulators for PC from Bohemia Interactive.

Building on 10 years of experience and constant engine development, Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead boasts the most realistic combat environment in the world. It models real world ballistics & round deflection, thermal imaging, materials penetration, features a realtime day/night cycle and dynamic wind, weather and environmental effects.

do you need arma 2 and operation arrowhead to play british armed forces because I bought operation arrowhead and then i bought BAF. i downloaded operation arrowhead first and then downloaded BAF. operation arrowhead worked but when i tried to start BAF it just took me to the OA menu. I tried reinstalling but just did the same thing. If i dont need Arma 2 aswell, can someone please help me.

No i do not have Arma 2 but i do have the free version. sorry if i have written in bad English :(

I was thinking that, but it does not give me an option to play in the menus. But it does say i can buy it. which i am not intending to do as i already have bought it. I bought the addon off of desura.

I must admit I play DayZ a lot, but I bought Arma II, and OA, PMC and BAF way before the MOD ever came out, so you ***** who come on here and talk down the original game saying that the only reason Arma sells is because of DayZ need to bugger off.

Is this a DLC or an individual standalone game that doesnt require Arma 2? And is this the game that lets me use the Dayz mod?

This is a standalone game, and you need both ArmA 2 and this to play DayZ.

Oh, you people irritate me.

You people jumped on the train mid-way, and have now decided you're experts at a game you really know nothing about.
