Turns out the American military isn't the only fighting force looking to those with gaming skillz to fill its ranks. South Korea's Air Force is looking to recruit a handful of pro gamers to help improve training programs. After boot camp, the gamers will be assigned to a special office where they'll help develop flight and battle sims. While in the military, they'll still be able to compete in online tournaments, but won't be allowed to play for money. However, given that Korea has mandatory military service for men over 20, these guys would have to gear up in green anyhow, and now they'll know upfront that any battlefield they land on will be strictly virtual.
