X Squadron, Special Boat Service

Check out our social media & YouTube channel:





We are a MILSIM unit made up of players from around the world who like to play ArmA III tactically but also know how to have fun, and are currently looking to expand our membership with some quality people.

The unit is based off of the UKSF's Special Boat Service. We specialise in small boat operations, rapid air assault, and general SF tactics (HALO/HAHO, land warfare).

We have two detachments:

Ground - our boots on the ground. Ground currently contains Company HQ, an STA Patrol, 2 Troops, as well as SBS(R) - our reserve element.

Aviation - our eyes in the sky. We currently operate the Merlin and the Wildcat.

As for roles we have many available, including:


  • Patrol Leader
  • Weapon Specialist
  • Assault Engineer
  • Mission Specialist
  • Pathfinder
  • Pilot
  • Special Gunfire Observer
  • Troop Medic
  • Signaller


Now, let me list our minimum requirements:


  • Be at least 18 years old. (16/17 considered on a case-by-case basis)
  • Own a full, legal copy of ArmA III & the Apex expansion.
  • Own a working microphone and have Teamspeak 3 installed (or be able to install it). 
  • The ability to make at least 50% of the official operations on a four-weekly basis, currently held at 1900 GMT / 1400 EST on Sundays.
  • Do not belong to any other ArmA III group or tactical/realism/MILSIM unit at any point during your time with us. We do not tolerate people who dual-clan.


We meet every Sunday at 1400 EST / 1900 GMT / 2000 CET for an official operation, which are typically co-ops versus AI forces where we will deploy to complete some set objectives. However we encourage members to set up optional events throughout the week, and our members play a lot of other games as well as ArmA III.
Also please note our weekly Sunday ops are forced first person unless you are in a vehicle. We also do not use respawns during the Sunday events.

Another thing to note is we use the full ACE3 Advanced Medical System during our operations. We offer training on this during the mandatory Phase 1 + 2 training for new members.

Whilst we use a ranking system we do not use it to communicate, for example we do not call people by rank or “sir” both ingame and out of game. The ranks are merely to show how long a member has been with the group and their experience level, nothing more. They range from Rct to Maj for Ground (depending on role) and from O. Cdt. to Lt. for Aviation (depending on role).


We use a custom modpack for official events consisting of popular mods such as ACE3, Task Force Radio, CUP Units/Weapons/Vehicles/Terrains, as well as some in-house mods including custom ones. Like many groups we use a repository for the modpack (via Arma3Sync) so it's simple to keep them updated regardless of modding experience.


We offer access to a group Teamspeak server which is running 24/7, multiple ArmA III game servers, and a chance to become part of a community and enjoy both tactical ArmA gameplay and whatever people are playing.
