The game mostly takes place in the former Soviet Union, though the [[ChineseWithChopperSupport Chinese]] are present as hostiles. You start in Turkmenistan, where the [[RedScare Red Star Alliance]] stages an ambush of a routine guard duty rotation.

Added DiffLines:

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The Russian Premier actually fights you in the final mission. He's no tougher than a regular soldier, though he does use an [=LMG=]. It is somewhat noticeable since the earlier enemy V.I.P., the General, kills himself off-screen rather than face you himself.

Added DiffLines:

* NonFatalExplosions: In ''Graveyard'', the final objective is to plant an explosive charge on the fuel line, with the timer set to five seconds. In the cutscene, it destroys the missile and the attached tower and implies the player survived due to a successful mission.


Added DiffLines:

* StickyBomb: C4 can be thrown on tanks.

* BottomlessMagazines: Although applying realistic ammunition for infantry, some vehicles and emplacements have infinite ammo.



* HoldTheLine: The end of the last mission is literally you, in a square, with a handful of Coalition soldiers, against a massive Red Star force.

to:

* FriendlyFireproof: Standard use in the campaign - your allies don't flinch to your attacks.
* GangUpOnTheHuman: Enemies tend to target the player even when it's less efficient to do so. Examples include using bullets on a tank (which do no damage), rockets on infantry (easily dodged and ignoring the nearby tank), and attacking a drone you're controlling (stopping the instant you exit drone control.)
* HoldTheLine: There are two instances. The end of first is within ''Anvil'', where you hold out against enemies that try to reclaim the last objective for 10 minutes. The second is in the final mission is literally you, in a square, with where you and a handful of Coalition soldiers, against repel a massive Red Star force.force by killing them.


Added DiffLines:

* ItsUpToYou: In the single player campaign, only the player can capture objectives (even if your allies are standing right next to them). In addition, the player is the only one that can inflict significant damage.


Added DiffLines:

* SlapOnTheWristNuke: At most, the two nukes only hit off-map targets, and they're only called small nukes. While they still inflict radiation, it wears off after you defeat three tank waves.

* BagOfSpilling: Used to the point of frustration. Each mission comes in two halves, and everything you had before the loading screen is gone after it. However, you can die and respawn, [[ZigZaggingTrope with all your gear]].

* BagOfSpilling: Used to the point of frustration. Each mission comes in two halves, and everything you had before the loading screen is gone after it. However, you can die and respawn, [[ZigZaggingTrope with all it because weapons are provided on a per-map basis. The first noticeable case is the third mission ''Anvil'', where your gear]].sniper rifle and shotgun are swapped for a standard assault rifle and your minigun tank drone is removed.

Added DiffLines:

* OneBulletClips: Subverted - reloading a clip always works like it would in real life. Taking every opportunity to reload uses up much more ammo than it would in ordinary FPS games.
