America's Army is a free package of games created by American Army specialists and Department of Defense experts to show young people (potential conscripts) the backstage of being a soldier and encourage them to join the ranks of the army. America's Army consists of two parts, Soldiers and Operations.
Operations is a tactical team action game created using an advanced three-dimensional Unreal graphics engine (first person view). It has been specially designed for multiplayer gameplay, where 32 people can play together at the same time, but it also has a special single player training mode consisting of 20 missions (it serves as an introduction to the actual multiplayer gameplay). This training mode will determine our individual predispositions and assimilate the skills typical for each trained soldier, such as parachute jumping or navigation in difficult terrain. After basic training we will become a regular infantry soldier and we can choose our role in the department, i.e. Team/Squad Leader, Grenadier, Automatic Rifleman. If we want to become a member of elite, special formations, i.e. sniper, parachute or Ranger, we have to undergo additional, specialized training - respectively Sniper School, Airborne School, Ranger School. Depending on what kind of training we have undergone, we take part in the right fight.
Just like in Half-Life: Counter-Strike, there are two teams facing each other, and the aim is to accomplish the mission objectives, such as VIP defense, hostage rebound, etc. The goal is to make the mission more effective. America's Army's undeniable advantage: Operations is a great realism and authenticity, a detailed reconstruction of each weapon used by American soldiers, their combat techniques, the way they communicate on the battlefield, etc.
