  1. Background Information Operation Husky was one of the first stepping stones in the beginning of the final conflict in World War II: the first jump into Europe. The British and the American task force dropped and navally invaded jointly in 1943 to capture the island for a further step into the soft underbelly of Europe: Italy. The 82nd Airborne Division, the unit we will be portraying: dropped behind enemy lines and disabled coastal forts and guns that would have hampered the landing, and assisted in capturing multiple strategic locations such as the towns and supply chains a long the coast. Additional Mods You will NOT need any additional mods for this event. Additional Information Please contact your Squad Leader about the equipment, submachine gunners will carry the M1928 Thompson and mainly utilize the M1 Garand for Rifleman: but for the most part, 1942AB gear will be utilized.

  3. This seems like a pretty neat idea. You should put name tapes over their heads so people can pick themselves out!

  5. Quarter One - March, 2020 Corporal Thomas Miller Corporal Thomas Miller joined the 101st Airborne Division Realism Unit on August 2nd, 2020 where he was first assigned as a Rifleman in First Squad, First Platoon, How Company quickly upon graduation of his Initial Training Courses. Since then, Corporal Thomas Miller has accelerated his growth in Staff Shops and in Combat Positions by taking up vital parts of the unit: such as Imagery, Uniforms and Infantry Leadership. Throughout his time here he has shown a very strong passion for the community through vigor and dedication to his craft. He shows these while leading a team to setting the example in S-4 Staff. Having earned himself multiple Army Commendation Medal with Valor in combat, having graduated skilled schools in Leadership: as well as assisting in training for his Staff Shop, and improving the quality of our propaganda tenfold. In view of these qualities, his demonstrated leadership potential, and dedicated service, Corporal Thomas Miller has been award the Soldiers Medal and selected as this Soldier of the Quarter. Why did you join the 101st Airborne Division? Due to the excess amount of time I had to spare, and a friend of mine: James Randazzo was in the unit. Any favorite/funny/memorable moment throughout our whole time in the unit? The time when the unit was still growing to what it is today. I was situated on a Church Tower with a German Sniper Rifle, BAR, Garand and an MG. I switched between guns to take out targets from different ranges; my whole squad was dead and was en-route after a re-spawn and I managed to hold it for seven straight minutes. Under heavy suppression, I managed to live and survive the operation without injury. My actions on that day kept us from losing our objective which would have caused a major issue in the mission. Any advice to give to your fellow Paratroopers? Never get too comfortable with something in life. Always be on the move and explore new things. What value is the most important to you and why? Respect, even if your men no longer respect you. No matter how hard you hide that fact from yourself you are no longer a leader. What motivates you? Just knowing what I do my part to bring entertainment and enjoyment to our unit members. Any valuable lessons you have learned while being in the unit? Sometimes you need to pick and choose what you are going to fight. Not everything is worth fighting for. Sometimes you need to take a step back and re-assess yourself and accept failure.
  6. Background Information Operation Torch was the first airborne and naval invasion conducted by the United States of America with the United Kingdom in a joint effort to retake French North Africa, and spearhead Libya. French Forces of the colonies have aligned themselves with Vichy France, a shattered French government being the puppet of the German Reich. General Dwight D. Eisenhower organized three amphibious task forces and one airlanding force to land in French Morroco and French Algiers. The unit we will be playing as, the 82nd Airborne, 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment was tasked to land in Oran and capture two strategic airstrips. Additional Mods You will need the Anizay map for this event, and the regular modpack.

Due to the late-war nature of the drop, M1919A6s and M1A1 Bazookas will be in abundance.
