* YanksWithTanks: The main body of the Blufor faction in 3 is NATO. While The Uk also makes an appearance, most of its equipment and personnel is from the US Army. Taken to the literal extreme in the campaign, with Kerry being a member of the 1rst armored division, amusingly at one point he ask where the hell are the tanks that should be supporting them.

* ''ARMA: Armed Assault / [[MarketBasedTitle Combat Operations]] (2007)'': SpiritualSuccessor and de-facto sequel to ''Operation Flashpoint'', developed by BIS (the original developers of Operation Flashpoint), using an updated engine called Real Virtuality 2 ([=RV2=]). ArmA: Cold War Assault takes place on the fictional island of Sahrani, divided between two nations: the [[PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny Democratic Republic of Sahrani]] in the north, and an oil-rich (and US-backed) [[TheKingdom Kingdom of South Sahrani]]. The US forces have been training the South Sahrani military and are just starting to leave (in a trend of the series in which a predominantly US force prepares to leave a destabilized country only to get caught in the fighting; see [=ArmA III=]). You see where this is going. With most of the US military gone, the North invades the South and a few remaining US soldiers get caught in the middle of it, and they then aid the South in defeating the North.

* BottleEpisode: The Laws Of War campaign takes place exclusively inthe town of Oreokastro and it's countryside, showing anachronicly through playable flashbacks the different time periods from the cheerful pre-war peace time, to it's mine infested ruined post war present.

* DudeNotFunny: The Altis Armed Forces are not amused that Nato has them use [=CSAT=] targets in their firing drills. Adams claims it's all they have on hands, [[{{Troll}}though it's Sgt. Adams we're talking about here]]. Keep in mind that, at the time, [=CSAT=] and Nato are basically in a bidding war to secure an alliance with the [=AAF=]

* BeneathNotice: In a way. The protagonists of the apex campaign is running cyber warfare operations in the south china sea, and Nato is there in a politically motivated humanitarian mission. They're completely unaware of[[spoiler: the Viper unit. [=CSAT=] elite forces specializing in toppling goverment and destabilizing nations. They used the Eastwind device to cause the tsunami and they were funding the terrorist Syndikat until they stole the device for ransom, which Viper and [=CTRG=] now fight to recover.]] Interestingly, it is explicitly stated that [[spoiler: Viper]] doesn't give two shits about [=CTRG=] or Nato, or their operations in the area, and indeed, they only engage them when they stand in their way [[spoiler: of recovering the eastwind device.]]

* Dude Where's My Respect:
** Might be the complaint of the AAF in the game. They have to listen NATO forces slag them off and call them 'greenbacks', accuse them of being incompetent after they won the original civil war. Then they still get no respect after executing a surprise attack on NATO forces on Stratis (with the force deployment of AAF troops suggesting they were not necessarily getting ready to attack but got new orders all of a sudden - why else let Kerry and Adams through the checkpoint if they are going to start shooting five minutes later?). Then they have to fight a renewed insurgency on Altis, and later form the main resistance to the NATO invasion. In [[Laws of War]] it is explicitly stated that NATO expected the invasion to take only 24 hours but the AAF held them back for 72, and still they are denounced as incompetent, despite not breaking and running when facing the second most powerful military alliance on Earth, including the full brunt and anger of the US Military!
