ArmA 3 MilSim Group
As a community we have roots dating back to 2005 and the original Operation Flashpoint franchise, America's Army, ArmA: Armed Assault and ArmA 2. We were early adopters of Arma 3; our combined membership represents centuries of MilSim experience.
Sunday Night Ops
We conduct operations every Sunday at 8pm London time.
Our missions are created in-house and put an emphasis on realism, action and narrative.
We occasionally have optional mid-week missions that give members a chance to try out slightly different tactics.
The birthplace of the precursor to the ACE medical system, we use various mods from the community including ACE and ACRE2 during our operations to enhance the experience. We have a large number of our own unreleased mods and some of members are regular contributors to the ArmA modding community.
Our dedicated game and TeamSpeak servers are available 24 hours per day for our members to have a chat or play some games together. The use of our game servers for games other than ArmA is permitted for any interested members.
Based on the British Armed Forces
Our organisation, equipment and tactics are based as closely as possible on the British Armed Forces.
British Army Equipment
Clothing and bayonets to mortars and helicopters, we use mods that provide us with the equipment to represent the British Armed Forces. And are always looking for other mods to further that aim.
During our operations, the manner in which we communicate with each other over short and long-range radios is based on real-world radio procedure.
Ranks and Organisation
We use the same organisation and rank structure as the seen in the British Army. But without the need to address other members as sir.
How we intend to fight on the field and what we learn in training is based on the real thing. No parades or stagging on at the gate though, everything is mission focused.
When 16AA deploy on operations everyone has a part to play in achieving the mission objective. You will join as a rifleman, but with the right training you can quickly move into a more specialised role.

Once we receive your application while review and contact to your to arrange a quick chat over teamspeak.
Once accepted as a recruit you will be assigned to a section and go through our phase 1 training. During this time you can also attend Sunday Ops and get to know other members.
Once you have passed phase 1 we'll assess you on a Sunday Op. If we think meet the requirements you'll be promoted to private and become a permanent member of the unit.
Campaign Highlights - Operation Brigadine
It is February 2015. Escalation of the conflict in UKRAINE continues, placing the RUSSIAN FEDERATION on an ever increasing path towards outright confrontation with NATO and the European Union. The paper-thin mask of deniability over initial Russian intervention has slipped and western leaders are talking increasingly of implausible deniability when describing the actions of the Putin Regime.
"Great unit: excellent turn out for every operation and good bunch of lads."
"I wanted somewhere that I could learn the kind of things that are taught in the real Army, and be able to have as realistic a experience as is possible (while remaining fun) within a game. I was not disappointed. That was in 2012 and have remained here ever since..."
"16AA was a fantastic group for me to be a part of for 4 years, and I would easily have stayed longer if my circumstances had allowed. A great group of lads, and great missions every week. Even the training is enjoyable!"

"Being an NCO in the 16AA is the most fun you can have with your trousers on."
