The British Army was founded in 1660 and was critical in expanding the British Empire into the largest empire in the world by the late 19th Century. The modern British Army has a long tradition of being a professional fighting force focusing on expeditionary warfare.
~ In-game description

The British Army is a playable faction in Squad. This faction is the third conventional army featured in the game. It was added in the Alpha 11.0 update.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The British Army (or "British Armed Forces") was founded in 1660 after the monarchies of Great Britain and Ireland were restored. Throughout the centuries, the British Army helped expand the British Empire into the largest empire in the world and had participated in many notable wars such as the Napoleonic Wars and the World Wars. Today, the British Army uses modern equipment created in the British homeland as well as foreign equipment, mainly created by the United Kingdom's notable ally, the United States. The British Army focuses on expeditionary warfare but also operates as a Coalition power and United Nations peacekeeper.

Flag[edit | edit source]

The flag of the British Army shown in Squad is the Union Flag; consisting of a red cross (representing St. George and England and Wales) in the center which cuts up a blue and white saltire (representing St. Andrew and Scotland) into quarters with a cut-up red saltire (which represents St. Patrick and Ireland) within the white lines of the blue and white saltire.
