The Rifles Gaming Community编辑

File:ArmA uk chinook.jpg

The Rifles Gaming Community is a British based tactical unit, using a mix of quality British, OPFOR hardware, locations and other misc addons. We employ a blend of gaming that borrows from real world tactics and what works in-game. Expect a lot of fire and maneuver, missiles, close air support and painstakingly crafted, realistic missions.

Many of the Rifles GC are ex-members of the revered 23rd Ground Division, and as such have continued the tradition of Joint Ops with other units. We are currently hosting JOs with the 19th Light Division and 3 Para and are open to suggestions from other units.

Gameplay Style编辑

We employ real world tactics with a distinct British edge. The gear is British, ranging from the SA80 to the GR7 Harrier. The tactics are real-world, with training in skills such as bounding overwatchand FIBUA used to devestating effect. And then there's air support, applied in as realistic a manner as possible, via our trained pilots and forward air controllers.

We like to keep a sensible Chiefs:Indians ratio within the Rifles. Therefore ranks are very much earned on merit and necessity, making those who hold them all the more respected.

The following is a list of roles and equipment available to all Riflemen that have proven their ability in training sessions:

  • Javelin
  • Forward Air Controller
  • Rotary-Wing Transport Pilot
  • Rotary-Wing CAS Pilot
  • Fixed-Wing CAS Pilot
  • Signaller
  • Engineer
  • Sniper/Spotter

Joining The Rifles编辑

To join the Rifles, simply submit an application on our forums. Remember, applicants must be aged 16 or over, have TeamSpeak 2 and have a good grasp of spoken English.

Recruit Training编辑

Before selection, all potential Recruits undergo Basic and Group training, learning and proving the skills required to function as a Rifleman. This is completed via the Life Fire Exercise, where the Recruit is evaluated by an NCO in combat. Many regard LFEs as some of the better missions, with everyone playing to the best of their ability. Once promoted to the rank of Rifleman (Rfn), newcomers are open for selection to the section commanders.

Campaigns / Joint Operations编辑

Joint Operations give units a great chance to work alongside each other to achieve common objectives. Aswell as boosting the manpower within the mission, it also allows for greater tactical scope such as: having entire units suppresing and flanking a position simultaneously; having "top-cover" as a seperate element available to all units; giving commanders the chance to orchestrate massive battles that don't consist only of their own men.
