880th Marine Battalion - Cold War Era - Soviet Infantry

Recommended Posts




The 880th Marine Battalion has an established record of excellence dating back since 2012 from the VDV-GRU in ArmA II and later in 2014 the 45th Detached Reconnaissance Regiment in ArmA III was founded. In 2015 however, in good spirit, we broke with the group to pursue our dreams elsewhere and started building the on 880th Marine Battalion.

The great majority of all personnel in the Battalion have stuck together throughout all this time and it is with these expertises, forged on both the battlefield and on an administrative level that we've started to really know what a good MilSim unit is and what our members want, and provide them with challenging environments.Combined we have more than 15000 hrs of experience in ArmA together and through the years of comradery and deployments and countless trainings hat we are proud to say that we are what we say we are a veteran group.

When we play, we do so on the basis of tried and tested in-house made missions which is composed on well researched Cold War conflicts and theatres of war which brings immersion and roleplay to the enviroment.


Our modset is comprised of several in-house mods and have a Warsaw Pact Side and a NATO side - both holding very high quality content.

Missions are centered around alternate historical turning points tailored to represent a historically plausable World War III scenario.


The Battalion functions by staying true to the founding principles of promoting good behaviour, activity and professionalism on the battlefield and at the same time we seek to expand into a big well oiled machine. In order to do so we are enforcing discipline - not by saying "sir yes sir" but by giving proper trainings that allow newcomers to following the instructions and guidelines set out for them in the agreed-to policies and also enforce the punitive measures set in place to reinforce them if one does not.
This unit was not build by one man, but by all of us working together towards the same goal: a culture of integrity, excellence, and dignity in everything we do.

The 880th is a multinational english speaking ArmA 3 Realism Unit. We are a Military Simulation unit based around the Soviet Armed Forces, specifically Military-Maritime Fleet of the Soviet Union (VMF).

Our campaigns are always supported by a extensive backdrop of realistic background stories which is studies on actual geopolitics. This backdrop creates immersion and a sense of your efforts coming together in a bigger picture and making an actual difference.

Morskaya Pekhota
The 880th Marine Battalion is as accurate as we could possibly get it in regards to equipment, vehicles and more. We do extensive research all the time to get more information on both equipment and Soviet TTP's.

We are centered around Central Europe, but we accept all nationalities, provided that their ping and attendance is in order.
