    The BSAA are an anti-B.O.W organisation that is famous for being the next stop for series regulars, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, along their crusade to battling the many iterations of B.O.W's throughout the series. They have multiple branches across the world, and their series-renown essentially placed BSAA as the equivalent of the STARS unit for a new generation.

    The BSAA are first introduced in Umbrella Chronicles with Chris and Jill leading an assault against Umbrella, and succeeding in the process to finally down the nefarious corporation. For the most part at least; the only remaining founder, Ozwell E. Spencer, was still alive and free somewhere.

    Resident Evil 5 then carries the spotlight with BSAA agent Chris Redfield, and the newly introduced Sheva Alomar as they attempt to thwart an arms deal n the African city of Kijuju. Naturally it all goes sour, thanks to the ambush set up by Ricardo Irving - the aforementioned arms dealer they were sent to apprehend. One of BSAA's own benefactors, TriCell, is revealed to be a traitor and is in fact working with Albert Wesker - arch-nemesis of Chris Redfield, to create a new virus titled Uroborus. With the help of fellow BSAA agents, Jill Valentine and Josh Stone, they're able to squash both Wesker's and TriCell's plans. But not without a substantial amount of casualties for the BSAA as well.

    The Lost in Nightmares DLC pack would expand upon an earlier BSAA skirmish featuring Chris and Jill as they infiltrated the mansion of Ozwell E. Spencer. Unfortunately the duo also encounter Albert Wesker, who easily bests the two. Just as it looks like Wesker is about to kill Chris, Jill makes a noble sacrifice plummeting both her and Wesker out of a window.

    The Desperate Escape DLC pack focuses on the team-work of Josh Stone and Jill Valentine as they try to reach Chris and Sheva to give aid. Doug, a BSAA pilot, is also introduced but dies nearing the end just as he picks up Josh and Jill. With Josh taking up piloting duties, he'll manage to reach Chris and Sheva just in time to provide a pair of Rocket-Propelled Launchers, which they use to obliterate Albert Wesker, killing him once and for all.

    Resident Evil: Revelations acts as another pre-Resident Evil 5 BSAA operation and deals with the BSAA gaining its independence. Again featuring Chris and Jill, it also introduces additional BSAA agents, Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. However Jessica is eventually revealed to be a traitor and was a spy working for the Federal Bioterrorism Commission under Morgan Lansdale.

    Set 4 years after Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6 continues to follow Chris Redfield while working within the BSAA, alongside another new BSAA operative called Piers Nivans.

    Resident Evil Remake - Remastered Edition

    A HD port of the 2002 Resident Evil Remake released in 2015, the HD port includes both Chris and Jill's BSAA outfits from Resident Evil 5 (Specifically his Lost in Nightmares attire regarding Chris) as new unlockables. They were advertised as incentive for fans to engage in a viral marketing campaign called Contagion, where they were to ''spread the infection'' by attaching their email or social media application; doing so would increase the overall infection percentage.

    On September 26th of the year it was announced, 2014, the ''infection'' officially reached 100%, assuring that the new costumes were to appear in the HD Remastered port.
