« Civil war in Bystrica is at its end. But it’s not the end of fear for the people. War criminals like Colonel Miyovic still terrorize the country with their militia looting and murdering civilians. Forces of the Czech Republic Army are sent to restore order.

After restoring some order in Takistan; Allied forces were able to send in a small number of provisional reconstruction teams. Unfortunately local insurgents are still planning operations to damage the reconstruction process. However Czech forces are operating in the area and that should help change the status quo.
Official Description

Taking place before, during, and after the events of the Operation Arrowhead and Operation Harvest Red campaigns, Silver Lion follows the story of Bohuslav Kouba, a Czech soldier deployed to both regions as part of a counterinsurgency operation.

The two new terrains - Bystrica and Bukovina, are based on real-world locations in the Czech Republic (which were also used as inspiration for the development of Chernarus as well). A "cut out" portion of the Takistan terrain has also been included with the DLC for use in the campaign.

While a few weapons and vehicles are reused from the Operation Arrowhead expansion pack, many more newer and unique ones are included as part of the DLC. Several new backpacks, both retextured and new, have been added specifically for use by Czech forces. In addition, a whole new set of Czech radio protocols (separate from the existing Chernarussian protocols) have been added for use by the new ACR faction.

NOTE: To install ACR, the DLC requires both the base version of ArmA 2 and Operation Arrowhead expansion pack either as the standalone or Combined Operations version with the latest Steam version updates applied (End-of-Life/EOL patch).

  • Army of the Czech Republic was the final DLC to be developed for ArmA 2.
  • Unlike the British Armed Forces and Private Military Company DLCs, ACR was not included as part of the Reinforcements bundle that was released shortly after both were available for purchase.
    • For owners of the Reinforcements bundle who lacked the ACR DLC but still wished to play missions (either singleplayer or online) which used content from the DLC, a separate patch could be downloaded for free from the official ArmA 2 website for multiplayer compatibility.
    • However, it was merely a "Lite" version that had reduced graphical fidelity and compressed audio, and does not provide access to the campaign itself.
  • Following the release of the latest Steam version patches (as part of the Community Configuration Project updates), ACR was fully integrated with Operation Arrowhead and no longer requires players to download the Lite patch separately. It is available to all owners of the expansion, but they must still purchase the DLC or the entire collection in order to "unlock" the assets' proper quality.
