Mods Roundup - July 2004
Lately news regarding the release of Ghost Recon 2 are flooding the forums at GhostRecon.net and as a consequence people should expect a period of relatively calm on the side of mods development. However, this is highly untrue. New big mods are in sight and here you can find details of those who have been advertised at the forum for some time now. Let's hope they will not be dropped after some time like many other good mods advertised in the past editions of Mods Roundup!

2) Assisting w/ insertion of conventional U.S. forces
3) Co-op mission w/ UK SBS to secure oil well
