Frustrated by the lack of anything worthy to fill the tactical boots of Ghost Recon in 2011, Lightspeed has been working away at a special project – Armed Assualt 2 : Island Thunder.

Harnessing the artificial inteeligence of ArmAII and using some custom scripts, Lightspeed has pulled together what he would like to think is a worthy Ghost Recon replacement, and the feedback is already very good.

He’s so confident that this ArmAII mod will impress Ghost Recon fans that he has even issued a challenge; play his reworking of the Island Thunder campaign, solo or co-op, and see if it meets your expectations.

Watch a trailer about this amazing project at YouTube, and if you are looking for fellow tactical fans to join in enjoying this mod, we recommend Legion of Spartans.
