Notes

  • Although they share a similar same and use a heavily modified Real Virtuality engine (also used by the ArmA series), the Czech-based BIS company should not be confused with Bohemia Interactive Simulations (also shortened as BIS or BISim) which is an entirely separate company responsible for the creation of the Virtual Battlespace (or VBS for short) series of simulators for government use.
