Footage is from early mission where a british group (led by player) arrives to the allied airfield in Zargabad. With german, czech and UN forces, you are tasked first to defeat enemy assault to the trenches before counterattacking to hostile positions in order to capture back UN building and take down enemy AA threat. The mission continues with many more task offering around 1 hour, fully voice-acted dense playtime, where player dosent need to fight alone without constant friendly support from air and groud.

Hey, I could use some help...

I followed the instructions to install the SP version.
I started the game, went to SP, Scenarios, The Battle of Zagrabad.

Then, It gives me an error saying

"Mission " contains a bad link to a static object. Open it in the editor and save it again."

Then it lauches into a cutscene, but it is obvious that some models for characters and stuff are missing.

I have ArmA 2, and ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead. Can someone help me?

do you have the game patched to some of the latest versions (At least to 1.57, some of the earlier versions lack DLC lite content that are required if you dont own the official DLCs BAF and PMC)?

Also the combined operations are launced with arma2oa.exe. In the game menu->expansions, you should have all enabled (ArmA2, ArmA2 Operation Arrowhead, Expansion... +possible DLCs and beta). The mission includes some objects from ArmA2, mostly some small furniture and sandbag walls. The mission should work without those too, but the error messages are then shown.

How do I get it patched? My current version is 1.50.70996

I have both ArmA 2 and ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead enabled.

Nope, :)

note that this mission is played with BAF DLC units so the lite textures (supplied with patch for users that havent bought it) may look little ugly. My new campaign "Chasing Grim Reaper" is played as US instead and the DLC contents are in small role. You can find here, in case, you are interested:

You can find the latest official 1.59 patch here in Combined Operations modddb page. Its named "Operation Arrowhead patch", but it also update automatically the orginal ArmA2 and possible DLCs. So you only need to run that.


Its a quite big patch, but very usefull to have. The game have been upgraded much since release.
