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.

The Mannerheim Line

--- New on the Public Server ---
A mission from Evrik and Apollo

Location: Podagorsk, near the Finland - Russia border.
Date: 10th July 2016

With the revival of the post-Soviet Russian Federation, the former super-power is once again flexing its military muscle in a display of strength. It has expanded its sphere of influence over many of the breakaway countries that once formed the USSR.

Podagorsk is one such place. This narrow strip of land juts out into the Gulf of Finland just to the west of St. Petersburg.

Long contested with the Soviets, in the 1920's and 30's Finland built the Mannerheim Line, a narrow defensive zone across the Isthmus, comprised of bunkers, trenches and other field fortifications.

During WWII the Mannerheim Line held the Red Army at bay for several months, but eventually Podogorsk fell under Soviet control. Since then it has switched hands several times, but is now designated a de-militarised zone by the United Nations.

Reports of Russian troops crossing the border have been received in the West.


A British force under the NATO banner has set up an FOB on the southern airfield to confront this expeditionary force, supported by a US naval taskforce anchored off-shore to prevent further Russian reinforcements arriving by sea.

In recent days, this FOB has been heavily shelled by artillery, suggesting the Russians are moving ever further south.

Is it already too late to stop them crossing the Mannerheim Line once again?
