  1. Since our last update, we have successfully completed Op TEMPLAR and returned to Squadron training, where we ran another Selection course for new recruits, refreshed our Squadron SOPs and began training for our next deployment – Op BRIMSTONE – to take on ISIS forces in Al Rayak. This campaign will be a long term and persistent campaign with an ever evolving story line where the next mission depends on the outcome achieved on the previous Op's. We are still recruiting and continue to welcome motivated and active people to join our group, with Selection and Continuation training held regularly, and patrol skills and employments to suit most tastes. Interested? For more information CLICK HERE to visit our website. Or, for an informal chat, hop onto our Teamspeak channel during our game nights, Wednesday's and Sunday's.

  2. Update time! Since our last update (yes it's been a while) we have welcomed new members to the group and thrown ourselves into Squadron training, learning new skills and refreshing old ones, and we have now deployed on our latest campaign, Operation Templar on the Hindu Kush map. We have already deployed to the area in vehicles and are now laying up in a covert hide awaiting our first tasking. We will be conducting operations such as covert recce, dismounted close combat, hit and run raids using vehicles and many more. This will be a highly intense and persistent campaign and so far, it has gotten off to a great start. Recruitment and Selection Recruitment for the next selection course is open and dates will be posted in due course. We are still seeking motivated and active people to join the group. As stated in previous posts there are skills and positions to suit most tastes and we welcome applicants of all skill levels over the age of 18. pre-requisites: 18 years old or over Can read, write and speak English Own a legal copy of ArmA 3 Own a working mic/headset Have Teamspeak and ArmA3Sync installed or, if not, are willing to download them New-look website We are also in the process of re-building our website, giving it a fresh look and adding new content. Our forums, however, are fully functional, if a little empty on content due to the site re-build. ​For more information about recruitment, Selection, or joint operations with us, visit our website by CLICKING HERE
  3. It has been a busy time for the group since our last update. We have finished our deployment on Op Eagle Fury and are now re-acquainting ourselves with maritime special operations at our custom facility on Altis. In this time we have refreshed and continue to develop our knowledge of operating underwater, both with SDVs and without, Heli-casting, small boat operations and shore/beach infiltration and extraction. Our future plans are to continue to build upon these skils and others such as Maritime CT, use of raiding craft and much more... We have also carried out another Selection course and have welcomed some new members to the group. We have also streamlined and refined our Selection process, based on feedback received. The course now is shorter and more concise, with a lot of training being carried out "on the job" to allow new members to integrate with the rest of the group more quickly. We are also quite open to joint operations with other groups in the ArmA community. If you are interested in arranging a joint Op with us then please either PM myself or go to our website and get in touch there. Screen shots from our game nights: Foot patrol "somewhere in the middle east" Extracting HVT during a deliberate op Moving to LUP before first light Maritime training Extracting SDV using RAF Merlin Deploying from SDVs on seabed Selection: It's a lonely and often wet experience on the hills phase of Selection.

  4. It has been a busy time for the group since we last updated our old thread. We have completed an intense period of pre-deployment training and have now deployed to the middle east on an operational tour, Operation Eagle Fury. We have also recently re-vamped our recruitment and training program to better immerse new members in the UK Special Forces selection and training experience. The course itself is modular in design and designed to teach our SOPs in a challenging, yet fun, manner. Although we call our training course 'Selection', in keeping with the realistic approach to our group, we do not reject/kick out those who struggle during Selection. We merely offer optional extra training. Our group replicates, as much as game and mod limitations allow, the TTPs and operational tempo of 6 Troop, M Squadron of the Special Boat Service, which in real life is a part of the UK Special Forces Group. For the Americans in the community think of the SBS as a British DEVGRU and you're close. We carry out operations in a variety of environments, from maritime to land-based operations utilising a variety of insertion methods, from HALO/HAHO to aquatic and other methods, and we have a number of former and serving UK Armed Forces members in the group, as well as veterans from other countries. Although we have rank structure our approach is laid back and relaxed. Within reason. We do not address each other by rank and everyone is encouraged to share their opinion, however when the patrol commander/IC makes their decision then the discussion is over. Recruitment is open. We are seeking motivated and active people to join the group and we have numerous patrol skills to suit most tastes. We are also still seeking pilots. Pilot applicants will have the option to become either a normal patrol member in the group, only flying when we need air taskings, or, become a full time pilot within the group. Those who choose to fly full time with us must understand that, although we will ensure there is as much for them to do as possible, they may face long periods with little or no rotary wing taskings from the ground callsigns, therefore they must be fully conversant with UAVs and other ISTAR assets so they may support the teams deployed on-task. Our only rule for the flight section at this time is that pilot applicants have good experience at flying in ArmA 3. Overall group pre-requisites: 18 years old or over Can read, write and speak English Own a legal copy of ArmA 3 Own a working mic/headset Have Teamspeak installed Have ArmA3Sync installed Current patrol skills available: Signaller Marksman/Sniper Demolitions Forward Air Controller Medic Pilot slots open (various air frames): Heli pilot Heli co-pilot Currently our gaming nights are Sunday's and Wednesday's at approx 2000hrs GMT Interested? If this sounds like it could be for you and you have the motivation, commitment (real life permitting) and sense of humour (you'll need it) then visit our website: CLICK HERE for more info. For further enquiries PM Budgie on our own forum, or myself on this forum. Thanks for reading, Budgie I/C Recruitment and Selection
