Product Release - Valve

British Armed Forces DLC (http://store.steampowered.com/app/33960/) has now been deployed on Steam providing a surge in support of the ongoing coalition deployment in Takistan.

Next in the line-up of military simulators, ARMA II: British Armed Forces (BAF) (http://store.steampowered.com/app/33960/) - a huge downloadable add-on for the recently released ARMA II: Operation Arrowhead (http://store.steampowered.com/app/33930/) - deploys today and delivers a new campaign, numerous single missions and a brand new faction and environment, expanding upon the already epic collection offered up by ARMA II's ''MilSim'' sandbox.

BAF provides an opportunity to explore the beautiful country of Takistan in even more depth, and offers the chance to hop across the border to Karzeghistan in the Shapur e-Dalanper region - a brand new area included as bonus content. A small, strategically important area, Shapur consists of pockets of densely developed settlements and industrial complexes within its regional boundaries, located just on the Karzeghi side of Takistanís volatile borderlands.

Unprecedented freedom of movement, action and tactics, together with hundreds of unique models and epic sandbox-style maps, create the most authentic military simulation game available in the world today: war without the training wheels - available as a download now!

A brand new faction - Private Military Company - reports in and enlarges the already enormous scope of ArmA.

One year after British and coalition armed forces successfully quelled the insurgent uprising in Takistan, the NATO Green Sea deployment is in the process of a strategic drawdown of its combat troops in the region. 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. (formerly Black Element), 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...
