WELCOME TO THE 3 COMMANDO BRIGADE WEBSITE
We are primarily a military realism unit based in Arma 2 & 3. We play Arma using British military tactics and equipment to try and simulate the modern British forces, and yet still manage to retain an overall fun and enjoyable gameplay experience. In order to delegate certain in-game responsibilities effectively we use a practical ranking system. See our Unit page for more information.
We often use mods/addons for ArmA including Advanced Combat Environment (ACE) and Advanced Combat Radio Environment (ACRE) to add to the player experience.
Mainly we are a UK-based unit. However, members have joined us from around the globe - Norway, Finland, USA, Germany and many more. Rest assured you'll fit in with the group, no matter your region.
Large-scale operations are run every weekend, and we also have a Arma 3 public server running 24/7 (on our powerful dedicated server). The 3 Commando Brigade's flourishing community is what drives and compels the unit to succeed.

As many of you may know, we've been experiencing alot of technical issues with our missions (whether it be due to mods, the mission itself, AI, or high player counts). [...]

To keep everyone in the loop and up to date with what's going on, I thought I'd make a post (as some people have requested) rounding up some of the recent changes.
Firstly - we've decided that the @3CB mod pack would not prove useful to use and would actually create more problems than it's worth. It's counter-intuitive to have to update a pack whenever a major update is released to a mod that fixes large issues (such as the recent weapon config changes in Arma 1.24). For now, we will be abandoning the idea of @3CB until all mods have settled.
However, we still want to keep the idea of absolute stability in our missions. Therefore, we will be deciding on a modset and keeping it static to keep our missions as stable as possible (i.e. not changing up our modest with each operation that we play). Mission makers are asked to stick to these modsets and refrain from using any extra mods. Another post will be made when this modset has been set (will be very soon). Operation Killwave (this Wednesday) will reflect these changes.
Public Mission Coordinator - Apollo has been suggesting this for a while. Currently we have no coordinator to tie together and manage public missions created by other members. For example, someone may be working on a mission to be used on the public, without realising that another member may already be working on a similar mission. With this, mission makers are requested to contact the Public Mission Coordinator before starting work on a mission. For now, I will be taking on this role.

Congratulations to Howl, recently promoted from Cpl to Sgt.
Sgt. Howl (or "Intergalactic Masterchief Commander Sergeant Flight Officer Howl Shepard" as he likes to be known) joined 3 Commando Brigade in it's very early days and has been active ever since. With a fine understanding of video editing, a talented artist, great field commander and all round good guy, Howl's contribution to 3CB, whether it be mission creation, operation's coordination, youtube channel management, or leading on the battlefield has been greatly appreciated and now further recognised with his promotion.
We are also welcoming six new Marine's to the team, promoted from the recruit ranks:
Congrats guys, keep up the good work!
