Welcome To 3rd Battalion, The Rifles



We are recruiting for people across the board, from pilots, to infantry, to Gunner's, to Medics.

We run two operations each week, normally on a Tuesday and a Saturday evening at 20:00GMT.

Our full Operations or Exercise's each week which put into practice and test all of our training and teamwork. Normally we deploy as a full platoon with 1 Flight taking on roles in Transport, CASEVAC and CAS.

Our main focus is to replicate the British Armed Forces and the operations they complete. We are currently designing missions to replicate Operation Herrick. We use many modifications such as ACE, ACRE, JSRS, CBA, We also have our own mod pack combining smaller mods that you will receive once accepted into the recruit training phase.

If you enjoy a realistic, tactical and mature group that enjoys having fun while playing, then this is the place for you. We play seriously whilst keeping an enjoyable and friendly environment around us.

Background Info

We are a new unit and wish to recruit the very best of those looking to play realistically on ARMA 2 CO, So everything is still in development. But we will be fully up and running by 20th August! We will be beginning our Home Rotation on the 20th August, Our phase 1's will begin on the 15th to prepare you for your first Home Rotation with the unit.

We were a small group of guys that played seriously and now looking to expand and recruit more members with the same mind set. We do something very different to other unit's, We allow people to apply to become an Officer/JNCO, Just like the real British Armed Forces. The only thing that will be different is your training will be extended to cover the JNCO Course we have available.

We follow strict radio procedures and strict ROE, whilst on operations our main focus is to be as realistic as possible. Below I'm going to list a few of the roles we have available and what they entail, along with a short summary from a member of that section.


As an infantry soldier you will be part of the Rifles front-line team, and you're likely to get involved in everything from peacekeeping and disaster relief to full-scale war. Once you've undergone your training and received the rank of private. You can expect many roles and opportunity's to open up.

"Being on the ground is great, We get shot at, On the plus side we get to shoot back, we usually win! There's nothing better in ARMA then walking along not knowing if your safe or not. Because our communications are so great we really get the feeling on being deployed, Even though we are not." - Sgt Govaerts

1 Flight

If flying is your thing, 1 Flight might be for you. Once you are assigned to 1 Flight this will only be the beginning of your flying career in the unit.

Our Rotary training is challenging and our Pilots follow many procedures used in the real world as well. All of this gives both them and the Infantrymen they are transporting the peace of mind to know that they will make it to their Objectives safely.

Transport, CASEVAC, CAS, Medevac or ISTAR's; you will have the opportunity to carry out any and all of these roles whilst flying a host of aircraft used by the British Armed Forced. And while the Flight element's focus is Rotary, the Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 for that extra bit of oomph.

"I Head up the Flight element, and i love it. From inserting our guys in a Merlin or Chinook to providing cover and fire support in an Apache is great. Also you've got the best seat to the show, With a Birdseye view on the ground, It's like watching a movie sometimes." - Grp Capt Hampson

We have many more roles within the unit. So why not head over and check us out to see if we are what you're looking for.
