The 4th Infantry Brigade Military Simulation unit was a brand new unit to Arma 3, formed in November of 2015. We were formed by a number of veteran Arma Mil - Sim Players from a number of different units, bringing with us all the experience gained throughout our times with previous units, including 51st Scottish Brigade, The Rifles Gaming Unit and Prince of Wales Royal Regiment. In our first year, we became the largest British based Mil - Sim unit in the Arma 3 community where we remain to this date.

Mission Statement

At the 4th Infantry Brigade Military Simulation Unit, our aim is to bring a professional, yet fun experience to all our members, attempting to continually find the perfect balance between what is fun and what is real within the limitations of a gaming world. When a member of the 4th Infantry Brigade attends any event, be it an Official Operation Night or a Unofficial Co-operative Mission, they do so with the intention that there attendance is not only for their own enjoyment, but to enhance the experience of those around them. 


Although we are an Arma 3 Mil - Sim Unit, we share the same core values as the British Army. In the eyes of our members, these values should not just ring true in a Work, or in our case play environment, but in all walks of life. Below are the core values of the British Army.

"Soldiering has always demanded physical courage, to knowingly go into harms way on behalf of the nation. Physical courage is required to risk life, take life, show restraint, endure hardships and focus on the task; soldiers depend on each other for it. Equally important is moral courage, the strength and confidence to do what is right, even when it may be unpopular and to insist on maintaining the highest standards of behaviour and decency. This earns respect and fosters trust."

"Discipline is the primary antidote to fear and maintains operational effectiveness: it is supported by team loyalty, trust and professionalism. Discipline instils self-confidence and self-control. Good discipline means soldiers will do the right thing even under the most difficult of circumstances."

Respect for Others
"Respect for others, both those inside and outside of our organisation is not only a legal obligation, it is a fundamental principle of the freedom that our society enjoys. Teams that embrace diversity, and value each individual for their contribution and viewpoint are always stronger for it. We must treat everyone we encounter, as we would wish to be treated"

"Integrity means being truthful and honest, which develops trust amongst individuals and welds them into robust and effective teams.  Integrity is therefore critical to soldiering, as soldiers must have complete trust in one and other as their lives might ultimately depend on it. Trust in the Chain of Command is also key, and demands integrity from those in positions of authority."

"Loyalty binds all ranks of the Army together, creating cohesive teams that can achieve far more than the sum of their parts. The Nation, Army and Chain of Command rely on the continuing allegiance, commitment and support of all who serve. But, loyalty is not blind and must operate within the parameters of the other Values; it should not stop appropriate action to prevent transgressions by subordinates, peers or seniors."

Selfless Commitment
"Selfless commitment is a foundation of military service, soldiers must be prepared to serve where and when required and always give their best. The needs of the mission and the team come before personal interests. Ultimately, soldiers may be required to give their lives for their country, that is true selfless commitment."

Unit Composition

The 2nd Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment, or 2 YORKS as it is known, is a light mechanised infantry battalion and part of 4th Infantry Brigade and HQ North East, one of the Army's adaptable brigades.  It is equipped the FOXHOUND Protected Patrol Vehicle and a range of small arms and support weapons.  Foxhound is an agile and versatile vehicle perfectly fitting the battalion's new role. Within the 4th Infantry Brigade Arma 3 Unit, members of the 2nd Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment form the spearhead force during all of our Operations.

Alma Company

Alma Company is a Rifle Company consisting of a Company HQ, 2 Rifle Platoons, each with their own HQ Seciton in command of 3 Sections of virtual Infantry Soldiers. They are experts in dismounted close combat.  Our members are highly trained in both the light and light mechanised roles, to fight by foot or by vehicle and can, when required, work closely with helicopters.

Alma Company has a 3rd (Manoevre Support) Platoon that currently consists of the following Sections:

2x Fire Support Sections
Assault Pioneer Section

3 Platoon, as a Manoeuvre Support Platoon, is designed to be an organic supporting element to that of Alma Company, mirroring current British Military doctrine. The role of each Section is defined as below;

Fire Support Sections

The Fire Support Sections provide the Infantry Sections of our Companies an array of different weaponry to suppress and destroy enemy positions. There are many roles available within the Fire Support Sections such as:

Machine Gunner - utilising both L7A2 General Purpose Machine Guns and L1A1 50. Cal Machine Guns. Their primary role is to provide sustained suppressive fire in order to support the manoeuvring of the Company. 

Anti Tank Gunner - mainly utilising the Javelin Guided Weapons System which has a range out to around 2000 metres. The Javelin missile will penetrate the armour of most main battle tanks. They will also be able to provide Anti - Tank capabilities with the new Next Generation Light Anti - Tank Weapon (NLAW) with a maximum range of 1000 metres.

Mortar Gunner - equipped with the 60mm Mortar, the Mortar Gunner will bring indirect fires down on enemy positions upon the request of the Infantry Platoons. These may include HE, Smoke and Illumination fire missions." 

Assault Pioneer Section

The Assault Pioneers are trained Combat Engineers, proficient in demolitions, obstacle crossings by boat, bridge or mine clearance and are an incredibly important part of the Battalion. Without these troops, the rest of the Battalion are often unable to carry out the job that they are required to do.
Although unrealistic, during Counter Insurgency deployments, our Assault Pioneers also provide the 4th Infantry Brigade with Explosive Ordnance Disposal capabilites, replacing our previous detachment of 58 Field Engineers (EOD), 33 Engineer Regiment to ensure the most efficient use of resources and maximum enjoyment for all members. 

Alma Companys ORBAT currently caters for almost 100 members, they conduct Training and Operations on Saturdays, commencing at 19:30 hours, in addition to their own section trainings during the week.

Burma Company, upon its opening, will mirror Alma Company, however they will be conducting Training and Operations on Sundays, commencing at 19:30 hours, in addition to their own section trainings during the week.

Using the Advanced ACE Medical System, our Medics will deploy forward to the frontline to stabilise and retrieve casualties. Depending on the seriousness of the casualty, the Medics will stay with them whilst they are extracted via Helicopter and taken back to a Forward Operating Base where they can be fully stabilised and the relevant treatment given before enabling that person to brought back into the battle. 

Our Medics are highly dedicated, providing and excellent service in a largely non - combat role.

Members of 2 Signals Regiment provide Signallers to the Platoons of 2nd Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment to help manage the volume of radio traffic dealt with at that level in the Chain of Command. Signallers of the 2 Signals Regiment are the link-pin between all the assets that we utilise at the 4th Infantry Brigade, without whom Platoon HQ's would be overwhelmed with the amount of communications they would have to manage.

Like our Medics, our Signallers are another group of highly motivated and dedicated individuals who conduct themselves brilliantly in another non - combat role.
