So I do have, for someone my age, a lot of military experience. I was in the Army Cadets for a few years reaching the rank Corporal 4 Star, I shot at the famous Bisley Competition placing 27th out of a few thousand. My dad was in the Royal Marines for 12+ years so my whole childhood was based around the military with my dad teaching me stuff and my uncle being in the Paras. I myself, are currently in the process of joining the Paras and set to complete my Assessment Center in June/ July once I'm as fit as I can be for the running tests. So I am VERY familiar with military jargon and will surprise a lot of people with what I know.

I have clocked roughly 9000 hours on Arma II and III together. I can safely say 5000 of these hours have been on ACE and TFAR. I have limited knowledge of Zeus and how it works but by no means an expert. The games I have played have all involved tactics and strategy, even playing Escape from Tarkov and now recently Metro Exodus, which is very challenging on its hardest difficulty.



The most memorable groups I have been apart of is UMP (very old unit) and 45 Commandos where the latter has recently disbanded due to an influx of people leaving the unit. I left UMP as a Lieutenant because I had a falling out with one of the Captains who paid for his rank and ended up leaving rather than causing drama; to my knowledge that unit has now since been disbanded for over 3 years. I was a fireteam leader in UMP and was a Pointman in 45C, in the middle of my section lead training. I have always gone for a leadership role, being on a small scale or large, I can lead under pressure and have the respect of the people I'm leading.

If I was to get into the unit, a leadership role is what I'll be going for.



As I stated above, my old unit 45C has disbanded and I was playing with Pte. Colthurst on KOTH and he mentioned his unit so I guess I was just interested in wanting to see what they were all about.

I want to carry on doing Milsim because it's fun, to me Arma is a dying game with Milsim and KOTH keeping it alive at the moment, and I think the unit looks very professional and worth investing my time into it. I also want to join a British unit, since a lot of the Units are American the time zones for operations are very difficult for me, so a unit with the same time zone as me if helpful.



AS mentioned above Pte Colthurst mentioned the unit to me whilst on KOTH, with my ingame name being "Hefty". Hopefully, he should recognise me.
