The unit, has been sent by the US government, true to Chernarus, formerly a member of the Soviet Republic, who is a new country has gone through some major political turmoil that has led to the possibility of civil war. First of all you go with a ground reconnaissance force known as Team "Razor" to get the lie of the land. Although only numbering five, the Razor team is as experienced as they are well-equipped, meaning that your team manages to come back intact but bearing information that is not promising. This means that that US involvement is inevitable. The game continues with the US deploying its forces the region with you at the helm and with all of the latest and most powerful technology they have the disposal.
In the second part of the series, included in the game which goes under the title of, Operation Arrowhead, you are required to return with your troops to Chernarus, where once again the political situation has began to hot up.

Once again your considerable skills as a commander in the field will stand you in good stead as you use all your powers to prevent civilian casualties and collateral damage.
