Building on 10 years of constant engine development, ARMA II boasts the most realistic combat environment in the world. It models real world ballistics & round deflection, materials penetration, features a realtime day/night cycle and dynamic wind, weather and environmental effects. The simulation of a combat environment is so effective, the engine forms the basis for training simulators used by real armies the world over. Although ARMA II is set in the fictional ex-soviet state of 'Chernarus' the gameworld is actually a 225 square kilometer chunk of the real world! ARMA II's highly detailed landscape is a meticulous facsimile of real terrain, modeled using extensive geographical data. This recreated region is brought to life with spectacular environmental effects and populated with dynamic civilian settlements and wildlife. Wild animals roam the atmospheric forests while the people of Chernarus try to live out their lives among the war-torn streets. The 27th U.S. Marine Expeditionary Unit have been deployed to the former soviet country of Chernarus in this third installment in the series of award winning PC war simulators from Bohemia Interactive, creators of Operation Flashpoint*: Cold War Crisis and ARMA: Combat Operations. Force Reconnaissance Team “Razor” are among the first to fight. This elite five-man team are about to fall down the rabbit hole, trapped in a war not only for control of the country, but the hearts and minds of its people. With the might of the USMC offshore and the Russians anxiously watching from the north, the stakes couldn't be higher. The fate of Chernarus is balanced on a razor's edge...

Game footage fooled ITV

On Monday night ITV aired a documentary called "Exposure - Gaddafi and the IRA" many people watched this including some of the staff over at PC Gamer. At one point in the documentary some footage that was called “IRA film 1988” shown ground troops firing at a helicopter and bringing it down.

One of the chaps at PC Gamer noticed that this footage looked a lot like ARMA 2.. and he was right… the footage was in fact a youtube clip that some kid had filmed with his camera phone of him playing a computer game.

ITV has now said “This was an unfortunate case of human error for which we apologise”

A video had been uploaded to youtube comparing the documentary and the game but this has now been removed
