We are a bunch of arma vets, who have experienced many different groups over the years of playing arma.
We wanted a small (around 20), tight knit group, strong on drills, SOP's and teamwork.
Hence we formed Special Forces Group (SFG).
We are like-minded players, who enjoy playing arma "well", who look to improve, both individually and collectively and all within an informal, good atmosphere and mature environment.
We are based upon British Special Forces, but are under no illusions of operating at, or being at the same level as a fully-fledged SF unit. However, within an arma 3 context, we do strive for high standards of drills, SOP’s, etc. and have a similar ethos, that an SF unit might employ.
We have an informal environment, no "yes sir/no sir", etc. While we have leaders, like most units, our ethos and training ensures, little to no "micro managing". Our members are mature, switched-on players, who take responsibility for their role in the team and in working on drills, skills, etc., in training.
We mainly deploy in 4 man sized teams, so every member of the patrol needs to contribute. Most members are crossed trained or have the skills to cover various roles (don't worry - this is an aspiration and a process).
We are a deliberately small unit (around 20): we have a good standard and a very good atmosphere and wish to maintain that. Therefore, space is limited within our unit. But when recruiting, we are very happy to take players, whether you’re relatively new to the game or a vet.
In summary: we employ military: tactics, drills, comms, etc., within a mature and good atmosphere. We have a strong emphasis on teamwork. Lone wolves, Rambo’s, non-team players, etc., have no room in our unit.
We have immersive and often challenging campaigns and missions. We also use VCOM, a smart and challenging AI (very different to vanilla ai).
It's not unusual for us to do a 'pre-op recce' or close target reconnaissance (CTR), a day or so before the mission to gather intel and formulate a plan. This is solely intel gathering and requires absolute stealth in approach (this is optional and for those that enjoy doing it).
We are an 18+ unit.
To ensure immersion and variety we use a number of mods such as: TFR, ACE, RHS, SPS weapons, various maps, etc., etc.
