About the Game
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon is an American series of military tactical shooter video games created by Red Storm Entertainment, the game development studio founded in part by American author Tom Clancy.
Ghost Recon has also been novelized by Grant Blackwood under the pseudonym David Michaels.
In the series, the player is in charge of a fictional, newly-conceived squad of United States Army Special Forces operators from Company D, 1st Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group (5th SFG) stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Except for the "1st Battalion, 5th SFG" designation, this unit is entirely fictional, as Special Forces Battalions currently only support three Companies (A, B and C). They are sometimes referred to as "the Ghosts". Their role is not unlike other real world special operations forces, in that their operations are kept highly classified.
In Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, you and your team conduct extensive missions on foot, but you'll occasionally have assistance from troops in tanks, helicopters and close air support. In many cases, you'll be working with international military forces and NATO to fight against rising dictators and rebel groups. Be prepared to scope out the defences of an enemy, blow up bridges to stop an advance, raid rebel bases, and rescue an American pilot who gets shot down deep in enemy territory.
The Ghosts are also the guinea pig squad for testing the Army's latest and greatest equipment and weaponry while under fire. You'll have access to the latest weapons such as an M-16 assault rifle with a grenade launcher mounted underneath. Or, you could be responsible for the M-136 Anti-Tank Rocket that you'll carry on your back. Firepower this intense would knock a normal soldier off his feet in a second. For you it's just another day, just another job.
Eastern Europe, 2008. War has broken out on the borders of Russia and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. That's when the call goes out for the Ghosts—an elite handful of specially trained Green Berets, armed with the latest technology and trained to use the deadliest weapons.
