    ARMA 3 DEVS arrested in Greece

    Although this is old, this is actually the first I've heard of it. Apparently the Greece officials believe they were spying on military bases in Greece while on a tourist trip. I hope this doesn't hamper the development of ARMA 3. More here:

    he shot his name into the application form from 1000 yards... while on a Segway... One handed with his USP in .45ACP... While doing pushups AND eating his sandwich...

    Back when i first heard this, my first thought was " What the hell does Greece have that is worth spying on? I cant imagine any other country wants to learn how to be so bankrupt"

    They might find out where the money REALLY goes...

    Seriously though:
    Bohemia says that employees Ivan Buchta and Martin Pexlar did not actually enter any Greek military bases, as some reports suggested, but simply took video of the international airport that included images of a far off military complex in the distance. The videos and pictures, Bohemia says, were taken from a public road that was accessible to visitors to Greece. "It's very likely that many tourists may have pictures similar to those taken by [Buchta and Pexlar] in their own family albums, without being aware that they put themselves or their families at risk," the company said in a statement.
    Greece and the Czech Republic are both NATO countries, so what's the beef? Not enough people to arrest in their own country?

    Oh, wait...... ARMA players are better soldiers and Greece is pissed about it.

    More money spent on entitlements than generated by the few people there that are willing to work. It's pretty simple.

    NATO or not, it's not America. You do not have the freedom to photograph or video wherever you want... and even in America, you can and will get hassled for no reason if you're using a camera in a public place.

    Edit: UPDATE- Czech president sends Greek president a letter over this matter.

    send letter to Greece: Hey, we work on video games and want to feature Greece's awesome Army in our next game.

    Greece: really? hell yeah, come on over!

    They just wanted the money to help out their economy.
