  1. Armoured Reconnassiance! @mikephoenix has released his Scimitar Mk.II as apart of his AFUK pack, which has enabled us to conduct Armoured Reconnaissance! Check it out here: AFUK Vehicles OP PANTHER IV On 20 JUNE, we will continue our campaign alongside the virtuele Panzerbrigade 21, where we pull out the FV510 warriors and try to gain ground lost during the previous event. The Future Due to COVID and other circumstances, we will be taking a break from events after OP PANTHER IV. We will downsize and re-configure the units as well as close recruitment. Anyone interested in the unit is welcome to chill on our Discord. That's all for now!
  2. 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 Our communications assets can be found here: WEBSITE: 20th Armoured Infantry Brigade TWITTER: @20XMilSim TEAMSPEAK: ts.20thaib.org.uk STEAM PAGE: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/20thaibmilsim DISCORD LINK: https://discord.gg/uNzFHz9 Thanks for your time and consideration, Charlie1210 and the 20th AIB Team
  3. OP PANTHER We have recently participated in OP PANTHER, our codename for a series of operations hosted by the virtual 21st Panzer Brigade - alongside the 402nd Panzergrenadier Battalion, National Defense Force, and The Tactical Network. Our next event is on 9 May where we provide a British Armoured Infantry Platoon to the combined UK-DE company! Here are some pics from our latest events: Fire Team Commander's Course Over the last 6 weeks we conducted our first Fire Team Commander's Course of 2020. 6 Riflemen started the course; only 2 Riflemen made it through the end and earnt their promotion to Lance Corporal! Congrats to LCpls Hughes and Orange! We will soon be deploying to Tanoa on ops within the next few weeks. We are also conducting a healthy amount of Combined Arms Warfare training in preparation for the next mission on OP PANTHER! That's all for now folks!
  4. Happy New Year! 2020 brings us into another eventful timeline. We have recently welcomed many new members into the unit - most of whom have put in great effort and completed our CIC. We also bring forth a newly designed website! We have conducted a short platoon-level training rotation, and now we are continuing OP TRACTOR on Malden 2035. We are now 50% done with this operational tour! As we continue on, we are preparing to conduct joint operations with the 51st Infantry Brigade MilSim unit, as well as the virtuelle Panzerbrigade 21, providing our unique Armoured Infantry skills with the use of our own in-house warrior mod! We are also available to conduct joint operations with compatible MilSim units! Sign on with the Virtual Iron Fist today!

    to piggyback off this, would it be possible to 6) have a SF variant without the LDS? LDS is a 5.56 optic and isn't used on GPMG in any form anyhow. #POSIFAB

    BAF : L85A3 RIS

    The UGL being used with the A3 is the same system as used with the A2. It would purely be a slight cosmetic alteration from the A2 variant with the sight rail/colour/minor TMH changes.
  7. OP TROJAN We are now well underway with 4th Infantry Brigade's OP TROJAN, a UN deployment to the Ukraine. We are providing armoured support with our FV510 Warrior IFV's to their light infantry platoons and detachments. Join the Virtual Iron Fist today!
  8. 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: It was a GREAT night! The Future: We are now preparing to begin a Joint Operation where we will role as UN Protection Force in The Ukraine. More info to come...
  9. JOINT OPERATIONS We have been preparing for another joint operation - this time with the 539 Assault Squadron Realism unit. This operation will see us using the FV4034 Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank alongside their commando capabilities. Starting 10 MAY, this operation will continue throughout the month.

  10. OP FORAGER We are now preparing for OP FORAGER - a Joint Campaign between us and the 1st Queen Dragoon Guards! This campaign sees us conducting armoured assaults using our FV510 Warrior IFV's! Sign on now to join the virtual Iron Fist!

    Just as a bit of outside curiosity, is there something wrong with the non-airburst HE already provided for the M6?

    Or perhaps a XML proxy on the right arm blanking patch since 5 RIFLES isn't the only regiment in the 20th AIB. with the XML's at least units that use them can use their own patches and that will save Mike alot of work!
