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.

Had an awesome night. I was FAC for this one - great job by the pilots (despite some sling-loading bugs). Thanks for your logistics support and CAS ;)

Read the latest Sitrep #00114 from Bohemia Interactive, particularly the 'Intelligence' section.


Obviously well done to our modding team for the quality of work produced which is even catching the attention of the game developers, and to our media guru's for spreading the word on Youtube, Twitter (nice one Deejay!) and elsewhere, but also to all 3CB members for making this a thriving community that continues to go from strength to strength.

Thank-you BIS for including 3CB in your Sitrep and for continuing to develop this awesome game!

TFAR Update

Posted by: Serjames » Sun Jul 12, 2015 8:56 am

There was a TFAR Radio update at the end of June that DOESN'T seem to have been propagated properly by PW6.

It may be one of the causes of our dramatic server FPS.

PLEASE all take 5 minutes to Copy the Plugins from the @task_force_radio folder found where PW6 stores your mods...

p.s. use the 32bit DLL if you've not joined the 21st Century ;-)


And paste them into the TeamSpeak plugins folder...

Overwriting the existing DLL


Very important that Teamspeak is not running when you do this.

Once done Load up TS, go to "Settings", "Plugins" and hit "Reload All"

Please do this before you join the server again as a matter of urgency as it does seem there are conflicting versions of the DLL out there.
