Information about Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon is a series of military tactical shooter games created by Red Storm Entertainment, the game development studio founded in part by American author Tom Clancy.

Ghost Recon has also been novelized by Grant Blackwood under the pseudonym David Michaels.

In the series, the player is in charge of a fictional, newly-conceived squad of United States Army Special Forces operators from Company D, 1st Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group (5th SFG) stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Except for the "5th SFG" designation, this unit is entirely fictional. They are sometimes referred to as "the Ghosts". Their role is not unlike other real world special operations forces, in that their operations are kept highly classified.

Ghost Recon

Ghost Recon begins in Apr. 2008 (10 years ago), with civil unrest in Russia. Ultra-nationalists have seized power in Russia, with plans to rebuild the Soviet Union. Their first step is clandestine support of rebel factions in Georgia and the Baltic States. This is where the Ghosts come in - to silence the invasion. Armed with some of the most advanced weaponry in the world, the soldiers of the Ghost Recon force are covertly inserted into the area of operations and given specific missions to curtail the rebel actions and overthrow their benefactors.

Ghost Recon: Desert Siege

In the year 2009 (9 years ago), old hostilities between Eritrea and Ethiopia have resurfaced. Colonel Tesfaye Wolde of the Ethiopian military had participated in illegal arms trades with the same Russian ultra-nationalists who launched the coup the previous year (see above). Sparing no time at all, and with a newly refurbished arsenal, Col. Wolde seized the opportunity to reclaim Eritrea (which won independence in 1993 (25 years ago)). The situation garnered international interest when the conflict threatened the shipping lanes in the Red Sea. In response to a plea from the Eritrean government for international support, the Ghosts have been mobilized to stop Col. Wolde from advancing any further.

Ghost Recon: Island Thunder

In 2010 (8 years ago), Cuba is free, or at least it is supposed to be. Since Fidel Castro's death in 2006 (12 years ago), the island of Cuba is wary of the communist rule it had been under for nearly 50 years. It is time for the first free and open elections since Carlos Prio Socarras, who was overthrown by Fulgencio Batista in the early 1950 (68 years ago). The FDP (El Frente Democratico del Pueblo or People's Democratic Front) has fronted a man named Priego as their candidate. The FDP are an outspoken anti-American political faction that wishes to return the Cuban working class to power and end capitalist inequalities, or so they claim. Although the FDP publicly denies utilizing violence as a means of coercion, the reality is quite the contrary, as the Ghosts quickly discover the FDP violently attacking election stations. In reality the FDP are a puppet organization run by Colombian drug cartels who wish to take over Cuba to use as a vast drug depot. Its up to the Ghosts to make sure the elections occur and protect the Cuban civilians from the cartel's puppets.

Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm

Taking place just after Island Thunder in Bogotá, Colombia, the drug cartel that had aided and financed the FDP in their efforts in Cuba has initiated a number of terrorist attacks against the Colombian government who have allied themselves with the U.S.A. After Colombia's call for help following an attack on a U.S. Embassy, America responds by deploying the Ghosts to restore order and put the cartel out of business.

Ghost Recon 2

Ghost Recon 2 is set in the Korean Peninsula in the year 2007 (11 years ago). The settings of the PS2 and GameCube versions (both of which are labeled 2007 (11 years ago): First Contact) are linked with Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, particularly the sinking of the fictional intelligence-gathering vessel Clarence E. Walsh. They depict a new Korean War brought about by a renegade Korean People's Army general, Jung Chong-sun, who launches a coup against the North Korean government. The Xbox version is the direct sequel of the two games, in which Jung plots revenge against NATO and South Korea. Ghost Recon 2 also marks the debut of the series' main character, Capt. Scott Mitchell.

Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike

Kazakhstan has fallen into chaos. The Kazakh president and Security Council were assassinated in an explosion set by notorious Pakistani warlord and arms dealer Asad Rahil. With the President dead, the Kazakh military fractured into factions vying for political control of the country. Rahil quickly moved in and consolidated power using his corrupt contacts in the Kazakh military. A large group of soldiers loyal to the government has been working closely with U.N. ground forces to stabilize the region. The Ghosts have been sent in to capture Rahil and neutralize his military presence. They are working closely with a contact in the Kazakh military named Grigoriy Koslov. Together, the Ghosts and Koslov shadow the U.N. forces' assaults against Rahil’s troops and track him from the southern mountain ranges to the wastes of the arid badlands.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter

Often identified by the acronym GRAW, the game takes place over the course of 72 hours in 2014 (4 years ago), beginning in Mexico City. The plot revolves around Mitchell's efforts to rescue US President Ballantine from Mexican rebels, destroy a secret communications device that they captured, and prevent a launch of the United States' nuclear arsenal. The game is mostly known for its new combat mechanics, new weapons, and next-generation graphics.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2

The game is set south of the United States border in 2014 (4 years ago), a day after the events of Advanced Warfighter, and deals with the conflict between a Mexican rebel group, Mexican loyalists, and the U.S. Army for a time span of 72 hours. A wide array of location types are included, featuring mountains, small towns, urban environments, and a large hydro-electric dam just north of the U.S.-Mexico border. This game, as well as Rainbow Six: Vegas, has been noted for rectifying squad artificial intelligence problems that the series has been afflicted with.

Ghost Recon 4

Ubisoft announced on Jan. 22, 2009 (9 years ago) that they are currently working on a new installment in the Ghost Recon series. It will be released in the 2009-2010 fiscal year (March 2009-February 2010 (8 years ago)).

Ghost Recon Novel

The novel by David Michaels follows Captain Scott Mitchell and the Ghost Recon team on a mission in China. Their task is to search for the Spring Tiger Group - a band of rogue Chinese military officers - and put an end to its attempt at seizing control of Taiwan and sparking a massive armed conflict in the Pacific Ocean.


Though well-received by game reviewers, the games are criticized for poor squad Artificial Intelligence.
