Chernarus / Chernarus Summer

North-Eastern Chernarus is a hilly area with rocky coastlines; the biggest hilltops reach over 700 m above sea level, covered by temperate forests. The environment is still relatively untouched from logging and mining. The biggest cities and industry are concentrated on the southern coast. There are mostly smaller villages inland, situated in deep valleys, hidden in forested ridges or on elevated plateaus with lush meadows.


Utes is a small island off the coast of Chernarus providing a key beachhead for USMC forces as they get ready to deploy in land. USS Khe Sahn is deployed off the coast of Utes in support of the main force. Utes is made up of a number of small villages, beaches and reasonably flat landscape.

Takistan / Takistan Mountains

The central Takistan is mountainous and undeveloped, with only larger settlement being the regional capital city of Zargabad located in the northern part of province. Majority of the settlements is concentrated in the irrigated "green zones" in the valleys.


The city of Zagarbad is the heart of the Central Takistan province. It is located in the center of large north-south running valley surrounded by the mountains from all sides. The city center is filled with large urban buildings, markets and offices, while the suburb quarters comprise of the simple adobe houses and farmsteads.


Shapur is a small, strategically important area with pockets of densely developed settlements and industrial complexes within its regional boundaries. Shapur features an industrial complex in living desert with a small airfield, located on the Karzeghistan side of disputed border with Takistan.


Along the disputed border of Takistan lay a number of strategic oil fields, under the protection of the British Armed Forces. The oil fields attract Takistani insurgents and militia looking to take advantage of oil output to fund their acquisition of weapons and vehicles or to bribe the local Takistani Army.

Proving Grounds

The Proving Grounds are situated in the western province of Takistan, with Nasdara providing the closest densely habited settlement. Stretching out towards Ardistan, the terrain is radically different from the dry desert conditions to the east and south, with denser clusters of vegetation in the more temperate region.


Bystrica is a steep mountainous and densely wooded area with a river separating the difficult terrain with two sprawling towns and several small villages. Bystrica has a striking resemblence to the coast of Chernarus and indeed is located near its southern coast.


Bukovina is a small area within Chernarus with an airfield, a small village and a larger compound. It is a densely wooded area surrounded by rolling hills and a flat expanse where the airfield dominates.

Sahrani / United Sahrani

The Democratic Republic of Sahrani, or simply North Sahrani, was a communist nation and one of two nations on the island of Sahrani, it began the Sahrani war but was absorbed into the Kingdom of South Sahrani and became United Sahrani after the wars end when it was defeated.


Rahmadi, or "Isla de la Caja", is an island located off the southwest coast of Sahrani. The island was for a short time an interest to local US forces in attempting to deal with the insurgency situation on Sahrani. In recent years the island has been used by the South Sahrani Military as a training facility. Rahmadi consists of an airstrip, a MOUT village and a small dock.


Porto is territory of the Kingdom of Sahrani, and it's not far from South-Sahranese coast. During the conflict between the Kingdom of South Sahrani and the Democratic Republic of Sahrani, described in the ArmA campaign, a small SLA force conquered the island and were later vanquished by the joint RACS/US raid. In the past, Porto was an important harbour with a strong minority of Arabian merchants, but its modern history just smells of dead fish, smuggled booze and boredom.
