Arma dev's new company car is cooler than yours

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

Czechoslovakia-based independent developer Bohemia Interactive, makers of the Arma series, Take On Mars, and DayZ made a new acquisition recently — a decommissioned T-72 main battle tank.

"Given the strong passion for all things military," reads a press release issued this morning, "the tank's arrival felt like a fantasy come to life for many of Bohemia Interactive's employees, who welcomed the studio's armored love child with open arms. Naturally, excitement levels went through the roof when they were given the opportunity to go for a ride in the tank.

"A massive tanks goes out to everyone who has supported the studio and its games throughout the past 16 years. Your enthusiasm and support have been astonishing."

Earlier this week BI announced the 2016 roadmap for the most recent iteration of their infantry simulation platform, Arma 3. Notably the new Tanoa terrain, a fictitious 100 square kilometer South Pacific island, is slated for the second quarter.
