Recommended Posts

101st Airborne Division, 2/506 WW2 MilSim

 

 

Introduction

 

We are a MilSim group that has been around for 5 years. We focus on giving our members an authentic experience in a WW2 environment, and at the same time giving our members a second home.

This is done by using the ArmA engine with the IFA3Lite and Faces of War mods as well as some custom made mods. we are based on but not limited to the 44-45 PIR (Parachute Infantry Regiment) Table of Organisation.

 

We are actively recruiting new members who we would consider to be high quality players and who would take pride in being involved in our community. Once you have been accepted into our training platoon, you will not just be another number; we will do our best to develop your skills and make you an elite trooper. Please do note that this is not a ‘casual’ or ‘semi-casual’ group, we’re here for the fun of immersion.

 

We are based off of EU times, however, we keep our times US friendly:

Fridays 22:00 BST

Saturdays 20:00 BST

 


Progression within the unit

Once you have completed your Basic Combat Training you will have the opportunity to choose an MOS (Military Occupational Speciality).

Our numbers are growing at a positive rate. The upcoming BCT graduation will put 6 new troopers to the test to earn their Screaming Eagle patch.

Last weekend we reached our highest number of attending members since our start in November. 15 men were training together in basic fieldcraft skills.

"This is one of the best trainings I have done" - A trainee in BCT Class #0005

 

Last month we played an 80s era TvT scenario against a British unit. 

Here is a video from the event!

 

Every month we do a special event in a different era. 
Next up in February is a Falklands War based scenario.

After the graduation of BCT Class #0006 and the end of Operation Piper we are entering a time of training to fix the flaws and train the new guys. 

 

With the next update of Unsung (expected release in May) we will have a new deployment. The plans have not been made and we do not know exactly where we are going yet, but a lot point towards Trung Si.

Due to the lack of interest for Vietnam shown by the community, we have decided to move back to our roots.

We have gone home to WW2 due to the popularity of the era, and the strong relations to other units in the era.

 

Here is a video from our last TvT against the 23. Panzergrenadier Division, together with the Citadel Regiment.

Our first operation (Overlord) was a success. It was a great learning experience in conducting airborne operations.

We will now exercise and do a practice operation to be in top shape for Market Garden in September.

Our BCT Class #0010 just graduated, and the unit is now redeploying to defend the important junction town, Bastogne.

 

1st Squad is now full, which means we will be looking for more NCOs, and eventually Officers. To find out more about how to obtain these positions, come visit our teamspeak or add us on steam!

D-Day is upon us.

We will begin our Normandy Campaign on June 15 to ensure the best experience for out members.

 

A constant flow of new applicants...

Has led to a great increase in attending personnel both on the official events as well as the unofficial events hosted by members during the week.

Three BCT classes (#0011, #0012, and #0013) have been evaluated recently with good results. The new Privates are integrated well into 1st Platoon!

 

 

Here is a TvT mission we played in April against the Red Devils and 2nd Battalion Essex Regiment.
