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.

We can play this mod inside A3 now - it's the replacement for i44 really as that seems to have died for A3...

Anyone else interested ? I'm going to pick it up

Our Recruits have been waiting a long time to attend their stage 1 basic training, and last night they all completed it. The turnout was fantastic, we hope that you all found the training beneficial.

Stage 2 of the basic training will be run soon so please make sure you all attend (keep an eye on the training section on the forums for updates on when it will be run).

Have all been Promoted to Lance Corporal. (LCpl.)


Thanks to all three of you for your valuable inputs to 3CB.

The overall Unit structure has also had a shuffle and a tidy-up in advance of what we know is our busiest time of the year.
