|«||In ArmA 3’s campaign players take on the role of corporal Ben Kerry, a soldier operating under a NATO peacekeeping operation in the Mediterranean. Five years after the bloody civil war in the Republic of Altis & Stratis came to an end, NATO forces have started to withdraw from the region — unknowingly creating the conditions for a Mediterranean flashpoint. Kerry’s unit, 'Task Force Aegis' — together with a clandestine group of UKSF operators — is soon caught up in a situation beyond their control, and trapped in a fight for their survival.||»|
