The 81st Armored Brigade was a U.S. Army National Guard brigade based in Washington, D.C.

Act of War: Direct ActionEdit

In Act of War: Direct Action, following the rescue of the U.S. Senators in the crisis on Capitol Hill, General Kelly reported that they had lost contact with the 81st a few hours ago. Suddenly, the 81st began opening fire on the U.S. Army base.

It is presumed that Consortium terrorists were responsible for the mass murder of the 81st, stealing their weapons, uniforms and hardware for use against the U.S. Army and Task Force Talon forces under the command of Major Jason Richter.
