About Arma 2: Private Military Company 

They aren't Tier 1; this isn't special ops. They are contractors; this is Private Military Company.

Private Military Company is an expansion for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and offers strong story driven single player campaign and new faction - Private Military Company with its exotic weapons and vehicles. One year after the British and coalition armed forces successfully quelled the insurgent uprising in Takistan, 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…

About Arma 2: British Armed Forces

A2BAF is an expansion for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead. Its campaign takes place less than two months after Operation Arrowhead successfully routed the Takistani military regime, where NATO coalition forces face a large-scale outbreak of guerilla insurgency. A mechanized force of British troops are about to deploy and embark upon a large-scale counter-insurgency campaign, which will define the future of the coalition presence in Takistan: Operation "Crimson Lance".

About Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead

Three years after the conflict in Chernarus, portrayed in the original Arma 2, a new flashpoint explodes in the Green Sea region and coalition forces led by the US Army are sent to Takistan to quickly restore peace and prevent further civilian casualties in this standalone expansion pack to the best military simulator of 2009– Arma 2.

Building upon the success of Bohemia Interactive's critically acclaimed Arma 2 (Most PC Game of 2009), Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead offers a brand new gameplay experience with a range of new content, features, and engine development.

Expanding the scope of the 'Armaversum', this flashpoint shifts the focus to a new theatre of war.
