Armed Forces[edit | edit source]
Military Branches[edit | edit source]
These are currently all of the operated military branches in the US. These are past and present branches.
|The United States Marine Corps (USMC) is a branch of the United States military responsible for providing force projection from the sea, using the mobility of the United States Navy to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces. They are part of the Department of the Navy. They appear in several Battlefield games.|
|The United States Army is the main branch in the United States military responsible for ground operations and occupations. They appear in several Battlefield games.|
|The United States Navy (USN) is a branch of the United States military responsible for naval operations and movements in coordination with the United States Army, Air Force and the Marine Corps. They also have a special operations force known as the Navy SEALs. They appear in several Battlefield games.|
|The United States Air Force (USAF) is a branch of the United States military responsible for aerial operations, transportation and support. Its aircraft appear in Battlefield games, but the Air Force itself is never mentioned and the players using them are always from another service.|
|The Military Assistance Command, Vietnam (MACV) was the United States' unified command structure for all its military forces in South Vietnam during the Vietnam Conflict. It had many components, such as the Studies and Observations Group and the 5th Special Forces. It has been disbanded since March 29, 1973, though many components are still in service today.|
Intelligence Organizations[edit | edit source]
Only one makes an appearance in the Battlefield series.
|The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is the US's main source of intelligence on other countries. They as well are known to use black operations to destabilize and interfere with foreign governments. Their main ways of conducting field operations are through the US Armed Forces and the Special Activities Division (SPECACT).|
Military Organizations[edit | edit source]
These are the military organizations that the US has been or is still apart of.
|The United States is a member state of NATO, which is featured as a faction in its own right in the singleplayer mode of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. The United States is therefore presumably involved indirectly in this faction.|
|The United States was a member state of the Allied Forces during the First and Second World War. While they are never seen as one specific faction, they are represented as each individual nation. Therefore, they are present in both World War Two era games, Battlefield 1, and Operation Aurora in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. In World War One, the US faced the Central Powers along with the other members of the Allies, which in 1917 included France, Britain, and Italy. In the Second World War, they were the primary faction of the Western Allies facing off with the Axis powers, with the US joining roughly two years after the war began in Europe.|
Law Enforcement[edit | edit source]
|United States has close to 18,000 federal and local police departments, with many departments owning firearms to prepare for violent confrontations. Many large departments also maintain SWAT units, who use specialized equipment and tactics to deal with high-risk situations. In Battlefield Hardline, the Law Enforcement faction is a nonspecific representation of the multitude of federal and regional police forces in United States.|
