Welcome to the 506th.
« on: November 17, 2014, 05:00:37 AM »
The 506th IR Realism Unit was founded in late 2014 by former members of the 15th MEU Realism Unit. Many of our members are veterans and active duty military from around the world. The primary focus of the unit is light infantry combat in ArmA 3 utilizing real to life tactics, techniques, protocol, and communication. The core of the unit is based around task forces which are, in turn, based around light infantry platoons with a small amount of supporting assets.

At its core, a realism unit is essentially a role-playing unit. We strive to promote an immersive and professional environment for members to role-play in by providing a unique and structured military experience. When in-game, members are expected to act as if they are on a foreign battlefield or in a domestic training environment. For these reasons, the minimum age to join the 506th IR Realism Unit is 18 years old.

With that said, the goal of the unit is to always balance the realism with fun. If members are not enjoying the experience, then there is no point in the unit existing. When there comes a point at which a decision between the two has to be made, we always have to remember that this is a game and we are here for entertainment, and we may from time to time err on the side of fun.

If this is the type of environment you desire to play ArmA in, then click the "Join Up" link above, submit your application, and we'll see you on the battlefield!
