UK/EU - X Platoon - Pathfinder Platoon
Newey posted a topic in ARMA 3 - SQUADS AND FANPAGESWe are Pathfinders of Pathfinder Platoon.. also known as X Platoon. Our main roles are Recce, Capture and Sabotage, as well as searching for the areas to bring in the airborne troops. We specialize in airborne insertion, in particular our preferred method of insertion being HALO and HAHO and with that we have our own custom made mods to do just that. This enables us to insert and operate well behind enemy lines covertly, as is life though, not everything goes to plan... We are a small close-nit group and welcome anyone who wants to enjoy their arma experience in a group where missions are fun and in a more relaxed environment. There are no 'sirs' or ranks.. The Pathfinders (as in real life) don't display or use ranks, we work on merit and are on first/nick-name basis. There are some serious elements and we communications professional and demand discipline to ensure that only important messages are sent/received. We do conduct training exercises just keep everyone 'singing off the same hymn sheet' so to speak, this includes practicing our jumps, fire discipline, vehicle gunning and driving, comms, tactics and much more. Our operations are usually comprised of small 2-6 man patrols where a typical mounted patrol comprises of 2 vehicles with 3 men on each. Our main vehicle is the WMIK Landrover or Jackal with mounted GMPGs and .50 Cal HMGs. We have a teamspeak channel, the address is.. 188.8.131.52:10033 Arma 3 Units Page We are recruiting and you to join you will need to: Be 17+ (exceptions can be made if you are deemed mature enough) Have Teamspeak Speak and understand English Willing to download our modpack (currently 6-8gb for what we need - we use the arma 3 launcher so no downloading 3rd party software etc and keeps it simple. Our Op and Training times are usually 2030 gmt (gmt+1 in the summer time) and weekends are the main Op nights. Because of what we do in missions, you will be required to undertake a short selection course. This is where you will learn the basics of what we do and to give you and us a picture of what each other is like for suitability and not to waste anyone's time. We don't do phases of selection, and make you wait weeks upon end to play. Arma is a game and as such is treated that way, whilst we play with as much immersion as possible, at the end of the day we wouldn't expect you to learn to read the stars and navigate.. We have GPS for that! Once we are happy, and you have shown us that you have the right attitude and will fit in well, you then be passed out as a Pathfinder. This could all take a couple of sessions or longer, it depends on you. Continuation training will follow and there you will learn our advanced SOPs and TTPs and practice the techniques we use. Feel free to come and have a chat with us on our teamspeak or PM on here if you are interested, to apply please visit the website here and go to the recruitment section.
