[UK/EU] 20th Armoured Infantry Brigade [MilSim]

Recommended Posts

Background
The 20th Armoured Infantry Brigade was founded in November of 2015 by friends without sufficient time or hardware enough to fully commit to a proper MilSim unit- but still want to play professionally as a part of a team.
 
 
Mission
Our current aim is to provide a professional unit that realistically recreates the role of British Armoured Infantry. In this role, the FV510 WARRIOR sees use within the section for the infantry to fight with and out of.
 
 We are also well versed in dismounted infantry tactics for varied operations, and for operations with other units where the use of Warrior wouldn't be necessary.
 
 Our overall goal is to provide a unit which uses realistic British SOP's as best as possible, whilst also having fun and banter.
 
 
Who We're Looking For
We are looking for people who are motivated to create a unique MilSim experience. Since we aim to recreate a realistic representation of the British Army, we'd love to find personnel with previous military experience, with experience using WARRIOR and Armoured Infantry, and those with leadership and management experience.

As it is, we currently have a fair amount of members who are current or former service members of the British, US, Danish, and Croatian Armed Forces, including members who have served within the actual 20th AIB itself. If you would like to advise or help out, please give us a shout, and we will do our best to accomodate you!

We're also looking for modders to help with the creation of realistic in-game variants of the FV510, FV103, FV107, and AS90. We are indeed willing to donate to those willing to help.

If you'd like to join a MilSim unit, but do not have the time for regular attendance, consider checking us out. We offer a reserves programme which accommodates your availability once you've completed your training.
 

Things to Note

 

  • Regular trainings are on Wednesdays and Operations are on Saturdays, both at 1900 UK time, unless we are doing special events or joint operations.

 

  • We are looking for people aged 16 and up, especially those with prior military or cadets experience

 

  • Please do not ask us to merge with your unit. We will not accept any offers.

 

  • We are open to joint operations provided you use ACRE2 and allow joint training to be conducted beforehand.

 

  • We do not have Sodexo Catering or friday afternoon weapons cleaning, and when you finish your CIC we give you a virtual daysack (which also works at night).

 

  • We are a Military Simulation unit. We do our best to implement tactics and SOP's that are in use within the British Army. As such, we have a strenuous training programme and qualifications to be earned, and we expect a certain level of maturity and discipline from our members. We do not, however, require members to address each other by rank or act a certain way outside of the game. This is, after all, a video game and lines have been drawn that we do our best not to cross.
 
Summary and Contact Info
We're a tight-knit MilSim unit focussed on British Armoured Infantry. Looking for those with military, cadets, or leadership experience. Training/Operations wednesdays/saturdays, 1930 UK. Realistic training and performance, without the real army bullshit. Custom in-house mods and a strong forces-based membership

New Website


We've opened up a website now, meaning we no longer rely on steam to communicate unit events. 


 


This can be found here.


 


Upcoming Campaign


Beginning 4 JUNE 2016, we will begin our first, albeit small, campaign starting on Reshmaan Province. This operation will see us providing the light infantry role for a COIN mission.


 


Pre-deployment training is currently underway led by our training team. 


 


General Updates


As we draw closer to our normal activation date, we've been preparing our server and modpack for what we'll be needing. We've nearly completed all training courses, and will be starting them mid-June. If all goes well, we wil begin Mid-July.


 


We've also been busy creating in-house mods to suit our various needs.


 


Thanks,

General Updates


With selective recruitment still underway, we welcome Gdsmn Saltmarsh and Muir into the unit, bringing with them valuable cadets and forces experience.

Rolling Thunder 22

We recently participated in the Rolling Thunder armoured PvP, bringing 2 tanks to BLUFOR. Even though the Russians annihilated our team, we excelled as a crew and troop! 

We participate in many community events, and will be back and ready for Rolling Thunder 23 this winter!

 

Joint Operations

We have recently begun training to prepare for a joint operation with the 51st Infantry Brigade. EX HIGHLAND SWORD will commence on the 11th July to assess our skills and cohesiveness before we deploy as a joint battle group.

 

FV510 Warrior

After a year of work and much frustration, we have finally released a version of our FV510 Warrior edit to the public. She's a beauty! 

 

We are charging ahead into the future, ready for whatever comes our way!

Joint Operations

Beginning later this week, we begin our first joint operation with the 161st Reconnaissance Regiment! Although we will be performing many roles with them, our main effort will be to provide an Armoured Infantry QRF using the FV510 Warrior IFV. Videos and media will soon follow! OP LIBERATION LYTHIUM I is a go!

 

Youtube Channel

We have now got a revamped YouTube channel thanks to one of our new members! Our first video is of an off-night Hearts and Minds game, an unofficial event played by members of the community!

70's Campaign

We are currently preparing for an operational rotation... 70's style. DPM, SLR, GPMG and berets... what's not to like? In the next few weeks we will begin a campaign on Tanoa!

 

Joint Operations

We have recently conducted low level joint operations with the 51st Infantry Brigade and the 12th Armoured Infantry Brigade, and a possible joint campaign with the First Fusiliers is on the horizon. Our main effort is to provide armour support using the FV510 Warrior and FV432/3 Bulldog.

2 Sections!

We have opened our 2nd Section under 1 Platoon, and are making accomodations for a third. This addition to the unit is allowing us to open...

 

Queen's Royal Hussars/Royal Wessex Yeomanru

Now that we have 2 infantry sections, preparations are being made to open up C Squadron, Queen's Royal Hussars, along with the RWxY as their reserves counterpart. This Troop will be operating the FV4034 Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank alongside 1 Platoon, as well as operating FV510 Warriors in the reconnaissance role.

 

Training on the CR2 is underway, using our own in-house modification of Burnes' CR2 TES, and is being spearheaded by actual serving members of the QRH.

 

Members looking to join the QRH will need to first serve 6 weeks minimum in the RIFLES platoon, as all available roles are currently taken!

 

Home Rotation

After 6 weeks of OP MARATHON I, the 20th AIB have returned to the Hebontes Military Training Facility in order to conduct Counter Insurgency training, before we deploy on operations to Zargabad.

 

Joint Operations

In the background, preparations are being made to conduct joint ops with the vPzBrig 21, our German Army counterparts, the 51st Infantry Brigade, and later the 1 RRF MilSim Unit.

ROLLING THUNDER #27

We recently parook in BDR Clan's Rolling Thunder #27, a massive armoured PvP. We provided 2 tanks towards REDFOR's 2 Platoon, and ended up with 13 confirmed kills of enemy tanks across the 3-tank platoon. It was a very intense battle and well fought by ourselves and our sister unit, the vPzBrig 21. 

Twitch Media:

First Kill

First Death

Second Kill/Second Death

Third Kill

Fourth/Fifth Kill

Sixth and Final Kill - ENDEX immediately after

 

And the final score:
