The MEA is a military organisation formed out of the need to coordinate resources and defence policy between a number of aligned nations in the region. Their use of well-trained indigenous personnel and stockpiles of foreign armament means that they are well adapted to fighting against the most technologically advanced of opponents.

In-Game equipment[edit | edit source]

The MEA is a unique faction in the game because it predominantly combines Western/NATO gear (particularly small arms and infantry weapons) with Russian-made heavy weapons and vehicles. They are also the only faction in the game that predominantly uses battle rifles as their primary weapons, which fire full-power rifle rounds compared to the intermediate cartridges fired by other factions' assault rifles. This means that their standard-issue infantry weapons deal quite a bit of damage, but are mitigated by high recoil when fired full auto. Their vehicle fleet is mostly composed of Russian vehicles, most notably their trucks, main battle tanks, APCs, and IFVs.
