BSAA Insignia South America



This is my "slightly" modified logo for the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance) South America Base as seen in the video game Resident Evil 5.

The other bases use the same basic insignia with the base location in the top tab and color changes to the overall insignia.

The Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, or BSAA for short, is an organization founded by the Global Pharmaceutical Consortium at the request of the U.S. Government. Officially backed by the United Nations, their main purpose is to combat and prevent bio-terrorism.
One of their duties is to track down B.O.W.s and other viral weaponry developed by Umbrella that is being illegally sold on the black market to various bio-terrorists.

The BSAA have advanced technology and a number of skilled personnel in their ranks. There are branches stationed around the world, including Africa, Europe, and America.

Members of the BSAA receive special training to combat BOWs and the infected, which sets them apart from the regular military. The BSAA headquarters are located in England.


The BSAA was founded by Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, as well as nine other members shortly after the fall of Umbrella to combat the high numbers of BOW being sold on the black market. Due to their successes and the high demand for anti- BOW assignments, the organization expands greatly in numbers, with headquarters stationed around the world.[1]
In 2005, shortly after the founding of the company, Chris and Jill, as well as Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat fought against bioterrorist group Veltro and their newly developed virus; T-Abyss.

In 2006, the BSAA discovered the location of former Umbrella CEO Ozwell Spencer's European hideout. With the intention of capturing Spencer, Chris and Jill were dispatched to the mansion later that year. However, the mission did not go as planned. Upon arrival, Chris and Jill encountered zombies and BOWs. They eventually found Spencer lying dead, murdered by Albert Wesker. After a one-sided battle, Jill tackled Wesker out the window to save Chris, and the two fell into the rocky chasm below.

After 3 months of searching the coast, no bodies were found and the two were declared dead. The BSAA erected a gravestone in the memory of Jill, adding her name to the list of operatives killed in the line of duty. Chris is shaken by the loss of his partner. She is in-fact alive and taken by Wesker so he can exact his revenge upon her. Her body is used as a testing ground for his latest endevour, Uroboros.

In 2008 Sheva Alomar joined the BSAA, and was assigned to the West African branch. She is taken under the wing of Josh Stone. The two become close friends.

In 2009, Chris and Sheva are dispatched to investigate a black market deal involving Ricardo Irving and stop a mysterious virus from spreading. Chris receives information implying that Jill may be alive and strays from the mission to find her. Eventually, Jill Valentine is found alive and freed from Wesker, whose plans are thwarted, and whom is subsequently eliminated. The Uroboros outbreak in Kijuju is stopped though loses to the organization are heavy; survivors include; Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Sheva Alomar and Josh Stone.

Weapons and Equipment

The standard weapons for BSAA operatives are the SIG 556 and the Beretta 92FS, though some have specific weapons individual to themselves; such as Jill Valentine, who exclusively uses a Px4 handgun. They use many other weapons including shotguns, sniper rifles and machine guns. A fallen BSAA soldier in the marshlands also had an S&W M29, and those hanging from Ndesu's waist band are carrying other pistols.


BSAA teams consist of two separate groups, the first being the Special Operations Unit (SOU), and the second being the Special Operations Agents (SOA).
The main purpose of the SOU is to infiltrate the base of suspected bio-terrorists, directly combat any BOWs or other threats, and capture the bio-terrorists.

The SOU teams are generally made up of twelve members, assigned in three four-man units. This allows for a large amount of flexibility, as a unit may be assigned to another team for a specific mission.

The SOAs are most often a single person, often assigned to investigate suspicious activities. They are the eyes and the ears of the BSAA, and are usually referred to as simply 'Agents'.

In some cases, an agent may be assigned a partner for a difficult mission, or as backup.

Members of the SOA are higher ranked and more skilled than SOU members, with Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine being prime examples. However, this may only be in terms of psychological state and situation handling aptitude. In combat skills and abilities, they may in some cases be matched by SOU members.
