I decided to try “Global Mobilization“, which is not new for anyone but whoever has not touched the game in the last 3-4 years (I miserably failed, tbh). Then I remembered I made a bunch of ArmA3 training videos in the past, about 5-6 years ago, whilst playing in a British group: “Volunteer Commando Battalion“, or VCB. This group aims to portray realistic missions usually played from the perspective of a British light infantry platoon, and features a good number of former and active military personnel. If you want to know more about them, I strongly recommend visiting the website linked above and have a look at CharlesZulu’s YouTube channel.
I made the following videos using Windows Move Maker; hence they are basic and lack any proper animation.
If you are into simulations, chances are that you have played one or more than one game developed by Bohemia Interactive; from the incredible Operation Flashpoint back in 2001, to the ArmA series. And, who knows, perhaps one day we will see a worthy title able to successfully mix the strengths of ArmA and DCS in a single game!
I decided to re-upload eight videos in total, covering various topics. Unfortunately, back then, I wasn’t given the permission to upload a neat exercise about Close Air Support control.
- Modern Urban Combat (MUC) part 1: Room and Compound clearance;
- Modern Urban Combat (MUC) part 2: Built-up areas;
- Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) part 2A: Fast-roping and Advanced CQB;
- Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) part 2B: Vehicle drills;
- Concept of “Deliberate Attack”;
- Jungle Drills;
- 60mm Mortar part I: Combat support;
- 60mm Mortar part II: Practical tests.
The last video is a bunch of tests I made to simplify the corrections for the mortar (or, at least, that was the initial objective).
Other videos, are lessons or extracts from presentations held in the virtual field.
