More About the Paramarine Task Force Milsim, an Arma 3 Unit.
The Paramarine Task Force Milsim Unit has consistently had a history of excellence as a leading Arma 3 Unit. Originating in October of 2016, the Task Force began due to popular request among a small group of friends, who came from a plethora of different Arma 3 Units. We chose to portray a portion of the United States Marine Corps that has been very much forgotten - the men of the 1st Marine Parachute Infantry Regiment who served with distinction in World War II. Though we play in the modern era, we simulate the values and mission environment that these men had worked in.
Throughout our own history, we have always made a point to be unique in the Arma 3 Milsim community. That is reflected in our structure, our missions, and our behavior. We have endeavoured to hold our focus on a mixed force structure consisting of core military assets, such as infantry, armor, and reconnaissance. We have stayed at a distance from the “Special Operations” designations, as we feel that to do so would reduce our operations to the interesting types of equipment we could use, rather than how we actually conduct our missions. In this, we have found our niche in perfecting simplicity, an area that is rarely touched in Arma 3.
The Task Force originated as a single Marine Parachute Infantry squad, and though there were many bumps along our path to success, the Task Force grew at a relatively consistent rate It was clear to us that we had struck the perfect mix of gameplay and community. Every member welcomed through our doors, upon passing their initial training, has been welcomed as a fully fledged member of our community, and as a part of our family.
In Quarter 1 of 2017, we completed our first infantry platoon, and started our second platoon, which was to consist of light armored vehicles. Shortly following this, we added our third platoon, which consisted of Force Reconnaissance, tasked with performing forward observation for the other assets. In Quarter 3 of 2017, it became apparent that Arma could not continue to handle the number of players we were gathering, and we created a second company. This company, Bravo Company, extended our outreach to more easily welcome those residing in Europe. It initially began as a single reconnaissance platoon, and quickly grew to two reconnaissance platoons, and an additional light armored reconnaissance platoon. At this time, Alpha Company’s light armored platoon initiated training to swap to the M1 Abrams, thus becoming an armor platoon. At this time, we currently maintain six platoons among two companies, alongside an incredible Marine Aircraft Group, which fields a further four squadrons. Each squadron specializes in particular aircraft systems in order to perform at an incredibly high level.
Alongside the Ground Combat Elements of the Paramarine Task Force, we have an outstanding Aviation Combat Element, Marine Aircraft Group 36. This element consists of trained Air Traffic Controllers, and four individual squadrons. Vikings Squadron supports the Task Force with F/A-18 support, focusing primarily on air superiority and close air support. Wolfpack Squadron supports the Task Force with UH-1Y and CH-53E, that focuses on transportation and air support. Raiders Squadron supports the Task Force with KC-130 variant support, as well as UAV support. This squadron is incredibly important, due to the necessity of these pilots to support parachute operations, equipment transport, aerial refueling, and intelligence. Lastly, we have the Gunfighter Squadron, which utilizes AH-1Z Vipers for air support, while also providing reconnaissance.
