They just keep coming. The NRC assault is relentless - we're struggling to gain a foothold in this fight.
~ Zeyad Khalil.

The Nile River Coalition (abbreviated as the NRC) is a antagonistic faction that appears in the 2015 science fiction video game, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and is mentioned in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The hostile faction is led by Ethiopia, and a is military union that seeks to control the flow of the Nile River, and fight against the Egyptian Army with the help of the Common Defense Pact.


The Nile River Coalition was founded in 2022 by South Sudan and Ethiopia, and initially served as a trading alliance between the two countries until Sudan joined two years later. Through the 2020s, the NRC increased tariffs on water trading due to the rise in global warning, and the NRC accepted Uganda and Kenya become nation members due the Kampala Agreement in 2030.

In the 2030s, the NRC developed plans to build a series of dams and water treatment plans along the Nile River that passed through its territory, with the idea drawing controversy and condemnation from the Egyptian government and the Winslow Accord. Egypt and the WA claimed that their plans to build dams was a breach of the Helsinki Rules, but the NRC wanted to gain more control over the Nile River's water supply.

In 2039, Kenya discovered substantial amounts of rare earth elements, particularly niobium and neodymium, and began trading with the Common Defense Pact. The CDP admitted Kenya into the faction, and the rest of the NRC's nation members followed suit by 2040, due to the fact that Kenya would overtake the United States in production of rare earth elements. The NRC's relationship with the CDP strengthened, and the CDP ensured that the NRC received funding and expertise it needed to build the dams.

The NRC's main nation members constructed their dams and water purification facilities, which caused water flow from the Nile River into Egypt to significantly dropped. Facing droughts and civil unrest, the Egyptian government declared war on the NRC with the intent of destroying the dams and water plants. The CDP supported the NRC, as the Winslow Accord supported the Egyptian Army during the war. Due to their alliance with the CDP, the NRC had the advantage during the war, with the Egyptian Army retreating from their territory. The NRC invaded Egypt, and captured Cairo, and continued to fight against the Egyptian Army.

Manhunt of Dylan Stone

After leaving Switzerland with the help of the 54 Immortals, Dylan Stone and his team leaked information regarding Egyptian Army's weak points to the NRC. The coalition used the information to attack the Egyptian Army's station, Rameses, allowing Stone and his team to capture Dr. Yousef Salim. The NRC forces were defeated by the Egyptian Army with the help of CIA agent Rachel Kane and WA operatives John Taylor and Jacob Hendricks, but the coalition succeeded in shutting off the Egyptian Army's D.E.A.D. systems.

The NRC battled the Egyptian Army when the latter attacked the Aquifers, as they helped Kane, Taylor and Hendricks in stopping Joseph Fierro. After learning that Sebastian Krueger is in Switzerland, Stone cut a deal with the NRC to escape, and was under their protection in the Lotus Towers. The NRC battled the Egyptian Army once again when they attacked Lotus Towers, and killed General Abasi Hakim to start a civilian uprising in Cairo. Despite the attack, the NRC managed to stop the uprising when capturing Egyptian Army lieutenant, Zeyad Khalil. Though they succeeded in stopping the uprising, the Winslow Accord succeeded in stopping Stone and his team, as Hendricks killed Stone when he battled Taylor.


The NRC later managed to capture Egyptian Minister Said, and brought him and Khalil to an airfield in Ethiopia. The NRC proceeded to torture Egyptian soldiers, but were interrupted when a WA team led by Hendricks attacked. The NRC attempted to stop Hendricks and his team in rescuing Said, but failed.
