Story
------------------------------------
Set during the events of Harvest Red, the player takes on the role of Peter Novak, a Private in the CDF. Akula Lopotev
has seized command of the Chernarussian Communist Party in a violent coup and renamed it to the Movement of the Chernarus
Red Star. He has declared war on the current Democratic government of Chernarus, and began a campaign of 'ethnic-cleansing' to
rule out his competition. At first the CDF could contain it, but the ChDKZ slowly grew until they were overwhelmed. The
President sent out a call for help, to which the United States sent the 27th MEU to Chernarus aboard the USS Khe Sanh.
