3 Commando Brigade

Realism. Tactics. Fun.



We are a military realism unit based in Arma 3. We play Arma using British military tactics and equipment to try and simulate (to a degree) the modern British forces while maintaining an overall fun and enjoyable gameplay experience.

We like to use ranks within the unit to delegate responsibilities (as well as to show recognition of contributions to the community) and maintain a level of organisation that everyone enjoys. Don’t worry, you won’t have to fill out any report papers at the end of the day or give us 50 laps if you walk out of line. We think that Arma should be played and not taken to impractical levels (there’s no yes sir, no sir with us!).

Common sense rules are in place to ensure a fun and respectful place to enjoy gaming. Maturity, respect, and common-sense (and maybe even an odd bit of humour) are expected qualities from all recruits/members.

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.

Our talented texture artist Arka [3CB] has been hard at work once again, this time re-texturing the ArmA 3 AAF Mohawk as accurately as possible in the colours and markings of a real-life weathered RAF Merlin HC3 currently serving with British Armed Forces.

- Olive green
- Accurate markings and decals
- Some panels patched or repaired after damage
- Oil and grease stains, plus other weathering
- Rear ramp opens to allow firing from vehicle
- Sling loads a Land Rover (but not the Jackal which is too heavy)

Read more about it on the release thread over at the BI forums.

- fixed bone skeleton errors

- added sling-loading capability

Forum: ArmA 3


Just a quick reminder that we've been steadily working to create our own 3CB pack of Skins, weapons and Vehicles for us to use as a Unit.

We have a dedicated team of guys who are spending significant time researching, testing, coding and Texturing stuff to add more to our game.

See our excellent new skins as a great example


BUT there is so much more we could be doing !

So if you have any latent Art College skills, coding experience i.e. with Configs. Or Modelling or Texturing abilities please let us know here.

We're just scratching the surface of what we could do, but need more people and skillz to really open our options.

Apply Below, thanks

Lt. Serjames

Dec 7th

Primarily for the Americans, but take a moment on sunday to remember Dec 7th 1941, On that day, people were going about their normal business, when they were cowardly attacked. That was a day that not only shaped the lives of the men and women that experienced it, but it also shaped our Nations foreign policy into what it is today, by showing that in order to protect our Nation, we must project force. If you think about it, that was the start of our modern military policy.So take a moment to remember the brave men and women, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, Marines, Doctors and Nurses, that fought that day to survive.
