ranger_24 posted a topic in ARMA 3 - SQUADS AND FANPAGESWebsite: https://armadocs.purplesmoke.info/home Email: firstname.lastname@example.org DA 995 Discord: https://discord.gg/weWrB9k DA 992 Discord: https://discord.gg/jP2nX3G Introduction Detachment 995 or DA 995, a.k.a. "Specter", is a European-based ARMA 3 MilSim (military simulation) unit that operates under the Dropping Purple Smoke (DPSO) banner, a North American-based community originally established in 2013 through the game PlanetSide 2, but later on has grown its roots into ARMA 3 as well. We are the European/Middle Eastern counterpart of Detachment 992 (DA 992, a.k.a. "Phantom") which is based in the United States. After merging with DPSO and officially re-organized on June 23rd, 2020, DA 995 is the direct successor of the former international unit Task Force Wolfpack (TFWP), which itself was originally established back in September 2017. As a unit, DA 995 continues to operate on the roots of TFWP, mainly using the same schedules and time zones for the comfort of both European and Middle Eastern players - while the combat doctrine and training systems have been changed to the basis of DPSO. Technical Information Establishment Date: June 23rd, 2020 (retroactive since September 2017) Primary language: English Recruitment Status: Open DA 995 Population: 8 General DPSO Population: 24 Addons: Full list is available through our Discord server, but mainly include the DPSO custom mod/ACE/RHS/3CB Factions/ALIVE/A3U (the modpack is planned to change soon) How We Operate The gameplay style of DPSO is loosely based on ARMA 3's 2035 lore, with the aim to have operations that semi-reflect what special operations units would conduct in futuristic environments, such as covert infiltration/exfiltration, deep reconnaissance missions, HVT elimination/extraction, hostage rescue, EOD operations, HALO/HAHO and water insertions, electronic warfare, and finally sabotage missions. DPSO will rely heavily on technology, individual skills, and team work. These will not be simple missions and will test the detachments abilities with every individual operation. While the goal is to have a gameplay experience that is done at a high tactical and technical skill levels, we are a serious unit looking for quality members to take part in our missions and events. We are willing to work with anyone who has the right attitude and mindset. Also important to know is that each detachment of DPSO functions separately and will have their own operations (as per schedules and time zines). Training will be standard across all detachments, just held on different schedules, while Zeus players and pilots are a shared resource. The following list represent several major factors about DPSO and 995 as a whole: Mature group with former and present military servicemen. Using ARMA-style ranking system, but doesn't apply military discipline! Playing with 1st person only for infantry and 3rd person for vehicles. Using ACE3 and KAT advanced medical systems. Using TFAR (beta) radios as our communication system. Many opportunities to advance within the unit, from weapons specialist to training instructor and even leadership roles (aviation roles are a work in progress). Using in-house custom mod that include custom textures and patches, mission making functions, and few extra for a better gameplay experience. Dedicated servers for training, ALIVE, and joint ops. Official Events DA 995 specifically conducts three major events using the Zulu time zone (UTC+0) clock as basis; on Fridays, Sundays, and Saturdays respectively, as follows: Fridays - Training | 17:00 - 19:00 (5:00-7:00 p.m.) Saturdays - Operation | 15:00 - 18:00 (3:00-6:00 p.m.) Sundays - Training | 16:00 - 18:00 (4:00-6:00 p.m.) The reason we have two training events is to allow comfort for both European and Middle Eastern players to participate whenever they can, based on time zones and local customs or religion. Those who cannot train on Fridays, can do so on Sundays and vise versa, but there are no restrictions to participate on both events. Group Structure DPSO is portraying the fictional and elite special operations force Combat Technology Research Group (CTRG) - under the direct command of NATO - which is an important part of ARMA 3's storyline and one of the main factions. CTRG is a multi-national unit that conducts clandestine, black operations throughout the globe and broken into sub-groups, where DPSO acts as Group 99. Within the group there are several Detachments, numbered from 0 through 9: 0 = Headquarters and Support Detachments (DS) 1 through 8 = Direct Action Detachments (DA); currently active Detachments: 991 "Ghost", the HQ Detachment led by the group leader. 992 "Phantom", the NA-based Detachment. 995 "Specter", the newly established EU-based Detachment. 9 = Flight Support Detachment (currently not active) The group uses the typical ARMA ranks structure, with the group leader and detachment leaders are majors, detachment assistants are captains, and support officers are lieutenants, leaving the rest ranked from privates to sergeants - all are applied to different occupations that are ranged from weapons specialists to medics or engineers, and from basic team leaders to training instructors or even mission makers. What You Should Expect As a MilSim unit, we offer all the seriousness and methodical gameplay, but also provide fun and humor when the time allows. We are a group of players first and foremost – no need to salute or ask for permission to speak or answer with “yes, sir”, “no, sir” (or ma’am), no need to perform routine physical training, yet showing mutual respect to each other and cooperate when it is necessary. We strive to balance on the line that parts professionalism, realism and friendship, and expect from our members to be serious when the time calls for it and let loose with the jokes when it feels right. The members are our most valuable resource. Assuming a player is active, he will not stay in place for long, and those who will positively stand out will be promoted and will be allowed into exclusive occupations and act in more advanced roles.
