UK/EU - X Platoon - Pathfinder Platoon

Recommended Posts

We are Pathfinders of Pathfinder Platoon.. also known as X Platoon.


Our main roles are Recce, Capture and Sabotage, as well as searching for the areas to bring in the airborne troops. We specialize in airborne insertion, in particular our preferred method of insertion being HALO and HAHO and with that we have our own custom made mods to do just that. This enables us to insert and operate well behind enemy lines covertly, as is life though, not everything goes to plan...


We are a small close-nit group and welcome anyone who wants to enjoy their arma experience in a group where missions are fun and in a more relaxed environment. There are no 'sirs' or ranks.. The Pathfinders (as in real life) don't display or use ranks, we work on merit and are on first/nick-name basis. There are some serious elements and we communications professional and demand discipline to ensure that only important messages are sent/received. We do conduct training exercises just keep everyone 'singing off the same hymn sheet' so to speak, this includes practicing our jumps, fire discipline, vehicle gunning and driving, comms, tactics and much more.


Our operations are usually comprised of small 2-6 man patrols where a typical mounted patrol comprises of 2 vehicles with 3 men on each. Our main vehicle is the WMIK Landrover or Jackal with mounted GMPGs and .50 Cal HMGs.


We have a teamspeak channel, the address is..


Arma 3 Units Page


We are recruiting and you to join you will need to:

  • Be 17+ (exceptions can be made if you are deemed mature enough)
  • Have Teamspeak
  • Speak and understand English
  • Willing to download our modpack (currently 6-8gb for what we need - we use the arma 3 launcher so no downloading 3rd party software etc and keeps it simple.


Our Op and Training times are usually 2030 gmt (gmt+1 in the summer time) and weekends are the main Op nights.


Because of what we do in missions, you will be required to undertake a short selection course. This is where you will learn the basics of what we do and to give you and us a picture of what each other is like for suitability and not to waste anyone's time. We don't do phases of selection, and make you wait weeks upon end to play. Arma is a game and as such is treated that way, whilst we play with as much immersion as possible, at the end of the day we wouldn't expect you to learn to read the stars and navigate.. We have GPS for that! Once we are happy, and you have shown us that you have the right attitude and will fit in well, you then be passed out as a Pathfinder.


This could all take a couple of sessions or longer, it depends on you.


Continuation training will follow and there you will learn our advanced SOPs and TTPs and practice the techniques we use.


Feel free to come and have a chat with us on our teamspeak or PM on here if you are interested, to apply please visit the website here and go to the recruitment section.

After a break we have come back and rebooted the group. 


Recruitment is open as we are looking to increase playing numbers and get a 3rd patrol going. We are also looking to speak with pilots (fixed and rotary wing) to fly CAS & Transport for us (the ai are a bit useless sometimes). 


People joining can expect a milsim experience without the B*******. As mentioned above we don't use ranks etc and everyone is able to contribute. We welcome anyone who can make missions and even mod/script. 


We have recently been honing our para jump skills and vehicular warfare using our favored Landrovers. 


Anyone interested, see above and follow the links.


Any questions, please feel free to PM me on here.

We have now joined forces with Joint Forces Command HQ website here where we will be conducting advanced recce missions and calling in the supports. 


Training is now run a little differently where you will apply to that group and after a short phase 1 of training you will get to choose your specific unit to join. 


Hopefully what is above and seeing us in game will encourage you to choose us as your home unit.
