« I weep for my countrymen. There can be no question. CSAT have engineered chaos and destruction on a massive scale. By supplying dangerous criminals with military weapons, they have sought to murder the people of the Horizon Islands. They are illegitimate. Their time has come to an end!

Benjamin Hope is a minor character in ArmA 3's Apex Protocol campaign.


Former president of the Horizon Islands government, Hope once represented the people of the island nation on the world stage.

Following the tsunami that devastated large parts of the Tanoa province, Hope visited the island in an attempt to reassure its citizens of stability eventually returning to the region.

Post-Apex Protocol

After CSAT's so-called "Apex Protocol" plans were revealed to the world, Hope issues a publicised speech in Georgetown, Tanoa.

He denounces the organisation after revelations that CSAT were supporting the Syndikat insurgent group with financial and military aid.

Local news radio reporting on the latest malaria outbreak

Three years later, Hope is now retired and no longer serves as president. He has nonetheless maintained a political presence by speaking out against the government's latest decision to cave into CSAT "requests".

Speaking at a fundraising event for Nouveaux Horizons (a pro-CSAT political party), he condemned both foreign intervention and militant groups affiliated with the L'Ensemble movement for attempting to exploit the nation's malaria crisis.

Personality and Appearance

A dark-skinned Tanoan, Hope has a short head of black hair with a lightly shaved moustache.

He prefers to wear a simple white-coloured, short-sleeved polo with black pants, and is always seen with a silver watch on his right wrist.


  • Hope is referred to as both "Jonathon" and "Benjamin" in several cutscenes and in-game materials.
