The year is 2011, and civil war has broken out in Russia between the Russian government and Russian ultranationalists under the command of Imran Zakhaev who seek to restore Russia back to its former Soviet-style leadership. A revolution has toppled a regime in an unnamed Arabic country which has ties to the Russian ultranationalists, with Khaled al-Asad coming to power. These two simultaneous events are causing fear that al-Asad and Zakhaev might form an alliance and use nuclear weapons against the West. In response to these concerns, the United States and the United Kingdom conduct joint operations to put down both uprisings, without putting their own nations' security at risk. Will they succeed?

Throughout the game, many Russian loyalist soldiers are wearing ushankas (Russian fur hats) with the hammer and sickle emblem on it. This was the coat of arms of the USSR. However, since the collapse of the USSR in 1991 the hammer and sickle is no longer the coat of arms for Russia. Instead, the Russian loyalists should be wearing ushankas with the double-headed eagle, which is now the coat of arms of Russia. See more
