The United States Army (USA) represents the United States of America in ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead.

Overview

The United States Army is main driving force that invades Takistan to stop Colonel Aziz and the Takistan Army from invading neighboring countries. Its vehicles are painted in desert camouflage schemes and its soldiers are seen wearing the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) in Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP). Some SFOD-D special forces soldiers can be seen wearing the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) in Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern (OCP), commonly known as "Multicam". Much like in ArmA II, where the USMC is supported by the U.S. Navy, in Operation Arrowhead, the U.S. Army is supported by by the United States Air Force (USAF), who transports soldiers, vehicles and supplies to the frontline using its vast fleet of C-130J cargo planes.

Footnotes

  • The United States Army does not use the FN SCAR as its standard infantry rifle, nor does it usually utilize the M4A3, which, although is an American weapon, is used primarily by the militaries of the Czech Republic and New Zealand. Also, the United States Army does not use the MTVR truck, but rather uses the FMTV truck.
