ARMA 2 has found a new home on Desura! Along with it's expansions and mod support in the near future there is no reason not to dive into the worlds best military simulator!


A hardcore military simulator that allows the player to carry out the many different roles of a soldier in combat zones. Its campaign takes place in the 225 square-kilometre fictional ex-soviet state of Chernarus where a bloody conflict is taking place.


ARMA 2: British Armed Forces

Two months after the Allied military victory in Takistan, the new government is restoring the war-torn country. NATO forces assisting in this effort face the threat of insurgency, waged by the remnants of the defeated Takistani army in the mountaineous regions of Takistan. Company team of British paratroopers patrolling the treacherous mountains in Zargabad's vicinity is ordered to battle the amassing guerilla warriors.

ARMA 2: Private Military Company

Private military contractors shoulder the burden of the increased workload, with competition rising between the multinational organisations for lucrative security contracts. Private Military Company, ION, Inc. successfully bid for a contract - codenamed Black Gauntlet - to provide security for a UN investigation team as they seek to piece together information regarding Takistan's abandoned nuclear weapons programme.

This may be a dumb question, but I'm new to desura and digital distribution. I have a copy of arma 2 bought in a store. So if I buy OA on desura, is there anyway that I will be able to run the 2 together as Combined Operations?

@JarryHead You have to use RegEdit(You can find how to combine those two into Combined ops by searching at BIS Forum) You can't play as Combined because you bought it seperately.So here the link :)
