About This Game
Argana, 2036. Welcome to the sprawling landscapes and punishing heat of the fictional Sefrou-Ramal province. Conflicts between rival tribes are flaring up, government forces are losing control, and an AAN war correspondent has been kidnapped. Civil war looms once again.
Become a private military contractor and be deployed to the desert dunes of Argana. This new addition to Arma 3 takes you to a hot conflict zone, brings back Arma’s iconic ION PMC faction, and introduces new vehicle variants, weapons, clothing, gear, as well as singleplayer and multiplayer scenarios.
HOW TO LAUNCH

This PC game is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents are either products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously. The narrative is also completely fictional and does not represent or suggest any historical parallels. Any resemblance to actual events, locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
Located in the northeast of Argana, the mineral rich province of Sefrou-Ramal has been a hotspot of unrest for many years due to rival tribes, underfunded peacekeeping forces, and a foreign military presence. Characterized by flowing sand dunes and desert architecture, this 100km² terrain is composed of completely new assets, as well as upgraded structures and objects from Arma 2 and Arma 3, making it as beautiful as it is mesmerizing.
Western Sahara features the UNA peacekeepers, the Sefrawi Freedom and Independence Army, Tura tribe insurgents, desert NATO forces, and the return of private military contractors ION Services.
To accompany these new factions, a wide number of headgear, uniform, and combat fatigue variants, as well as new civilian clothes has been added, and will allow you to blend in perfectly with the hot and dusty environment.
8 New Rifles
Repel enemy forces with the powerful Israeli IMIL GALAT automatic rifle and its modernized South African licensed variants, the Velko R4 and R5. Need fire support? The SA-77 general-purpose machine gun will help you out. Alternatively, pick up the battle-tested Belgian SLR or the modern XMS bullpup rifle, or blow your way through enemy lines with the AA40 automatic combat shotgun while your teammates lob explosive payloads via the stand-alone GLX grenade launcher system.
12 New Vehicle Variants & 1 Static Turret
New and impressive variants of existing Arma 3 vehicles make their way into Western Sahara; The Marshall lineup has been expanded with a Command Vehicle, 60mm Mortar, and an Anti-Tank Guided Missiles setup. The classic Zamak rolls through the blistering terrain in a new flatbed, cargo, and anti-air variant. The Offroad vehicle comes equipped with desert and makeshift armor kits, and the Russian PO-30 Orca helicopter has been outfitted with modern, lightweight armor plates to protect against incoming small arms fire. Additionally, new variants of the MSE-3 Marid with a .50cal manned turret and the BTR-K Kamysh featuring a hunter-killer kit have been rolled out. Last but not least, don’t forget the exceptionally remastered Arma 2 asset, the ZU-23 anti-air gun.
Western Sahara features a selection of new gear that includes a gun drone with a modular weapon attachment system, a portable ballistic shield which can be easily deployed whenever necessary, and a variety of masks like dust goggles, a military-style headset, a ballistic mask, and more.
