KAMINO - The 501st Legion 1st Regiment, 3rd Battalion “Hailstorm”, ARC Detachment “Onyx” has recently selected the ten new candidates to be apart of the ARC Candidate Program. The ten new candidates are: CT Noviix, CT Fancy, CT Daku, CT Nomad (formely CP), CT Cato, CT Casidy (formely CX-X), CT Delta (formely CX-X), CM Zest, CM Falco, and CT Mungus (formerly CS).  All candidates came from different backgrounds within the unit and have shown examplemary experiences during their time within the 501st Legion. We spoke to CC Ullr, commander of the 501st special forces ARC Detachment “Onyx”, and asked what he looks for when troops are interested in ARC, Lieutenant Ullr responded confidently, “What we look for is the drive and willingness to push yourself to solve problems they do not realize. Being willing to make sacrifices to the needs of your team as a whole and in doing so to help others while still accomplishing their objective. By doing this they are living up to the name of ARC and at the same time not being afraid to be tried by fire.”

We finally asked the lieutenant what he sees in the near future for ARC. He exuberantly responded, “A bright one for sure, we see a team that assists in a variety of different ways where they can overcome serious and challenging environments. In regards to how ARC solves those problems, we are looking forward to adding on to their experience. For example, if you claim to be good with one thing, you may not be as good with it as much as you think are, and so we are pushing individuals to be well rounded with their skills and anticipate all the obstacles that comes in their way.”

Currently, Onyx has eleven ARC troopers (the commander included and two in reserves) and seeks to do another Basic Selection in the near future.

501st Legion One Year Anniversary Reformations

Saturday May 19th, 2018

ANNIVERSARY - Today marks the one year anniversary for the inception of the 501st Legion Starism Unit. Major reformations have taken place within the past year that has fundamentally changed the unit. Currently, the 501st Legion stands as the most popular unit in all starisms within Arma 3 alone with a rough estimate of over 2,300 members, according to the Arma 3 Starism page. The 501st unit alone has broken several astonishing records in not only longevity, but in maintenance of the thousands of clone troopers under an extremely efficient command structure. The unit started a year ago as one platoon (roughly 30 troops) to evolve to battalion status (roughly more than 350 troops). We sought more information and interviewed the new Battalion Commander, Major Jay, about the one year anniversary and how the unit has progressed, Starting from the beginning as one platoon with one and a half squads with when we officially started, we have grown to up to roughly battalion level and we achieved almost what any unit could of achieved.” During our interview we asked Major Jay about the size of the unit within Arma 3, he responded excitedly “We have a somewhat well rounded community, we are the single largest unit in Arma 3 alone, apart from Star Wars Sims alone.” We also asked about where he envisions the unit going in the next year, he replied “Our battalion movement will good, we should have the next company (Blizzard) up to a 80-90% capacity to see how well they are doing. Apart from that in the meantime, we can expand outside of Arma with new avenues to become a massive conglomerate that is headed by this unit’s leadership. We being able to branch out and establish our own dominion and really start conquering the community with other games is a great long term goal.”

BATTALION CREATION - On Wednesday May 16th, a leadership lead by the Avalanche HQ was held at 1500 PM EST. After the meeting it was announced that the 501st Legion would be expanding to a battalion level, with BC Jay (formerly CC Jay) CC Bondoer, and CC Cruise elevating to battalion command. Captain Jay was promoted to major with his primary billet now at battalion commander and Lieutenant Bondoer was promoted to captain with his primary billet now at battalion executive officer and finally Lieutenant Cruise’s primary billet is now battalion shop commander. One of first great decisions made by battalion command was the selection of leadership in Avalanche HQ, CC Klein was elevated to the company commander position and CP Jan (after applying for the position) was made Avalanche Company Adjutant on Sunday May 13th. In the platoon section of Avalanche HQ, CC Sparrow (formerly CS-M Sparrow) was promoted to second lieutenant and was elevated to 1st platoon commander (which was formerly held by CC Klein).

BLIZZARD COMPANY - During the leadership meeting on May 16th, Blizzard Company was announced with its leadership already set at an excellent start. CC Angel and CC Whiskers (formerly CS-M Whiskers) were both elevated from Acklay platoon leadership to Blizzard Company HQ leadership. Blizzard has three platoons under its command, with Acklay acting as a 3rd platoon but still referred as "Acklay 1." Though the former Acklay leadership was elevated, they left it in good hands with CC Lava (formerly Sr. CS Lava) to take the reins as platoon commander, CT Walrusking as platoon RT, CM Navo appointed to platoon medic, and with the expansion of a 4th squad in Acklay. Hopes run very high with Blizzard Company as the battalion command shows exuberant confidence in Blizzard’s newfounded leadership, including Blizzard HQ decisions to appoint CP Earthknite as company RT and CM-P Calo as company medic. This solid foundation of leadership is assured to help Blizzard HQ expand with ease within the near future. Great decisions were immediately made to help Blizzard 1 with the appointment of CM Shoe as platoon medic and CT Fry as platoon RT.

DEDICATIONS: The News Team wishes everyone a Happy 1 Year to the 501st Legion and a personal thank you directly from BC Jay: “I want to thank the leadership and the community as a whole for helping us grow and we look forward to our unit growing even more in the future.”

Operation Proving Force Phase 2

Operation Proving Force Continues.

D383860

Operation Proving Force Phase 2  will commence Thursday 4/26/2018 at 2000EST (8 PM EST)

Operation Proving Force Continues once again this time moving to phase 2. Without spoiling the operation how Operation proving force has worked in the past is that it has made our Troopers value their life more, during operations,  this is due to there being a two life limit and once a person dies the Chain of command is followed and they cannot lead again until everyone else has died. Operation Proving Force is meant to be a four-phase operation, however, there has not been a 2nd phase until now, so we set off to find out whats been going on behind the scenes.

 

First, we sat down with the newly promoted CC Machete and asked how Machete got to idea to do an op such as Operation Proving Force, and this was his answer. When CC Machete was in the 15 MEU Machete had ops that were dynamic and Immersive these operations affected each other, setbacks and set forwards, (such as how much time it took for them to complete it and, how many casualties they have etc)  Machete has not seen any operation come close to what they did so he wanted to bring it here because it was Immersive and fun. Machete plans to make Operation Proving Force a four Phase operation.

 

We asked CC Machete how phase 1 went this was his reply.

During phase 1 they Had problems with people coming in and out 

People didn’t understand the rules. 

Crashed and killed 14 Troopers at the end of the op however overall he said it went alright and that he hopes to improve on this in the future phases.

 

CC Machete Gave us some idea of what he wants to focus on with Phase 2 and that is focusing on the rules and,  just a general idea of what outcome he excepts. Phase 2 is going to be a very very simple operation as to allow Machete to get the whole immersive aspect in there and really focus on getting the fun in the but also making sure that the rules are being followed. CC Machete Excepts Phase 2 to go well and shouldn't be too difficult for the Troopers attending.

 

While interviewing Machete we learnt a bit about what Machete is really trying to grasp within this op and, after hearing about it we got really excited so we thought you should all know. So some of the main aspects of this type of operation are the fact that if your squad leader dies the 2IC has to set up and it goes all the way through the chain of command before the squad leader gets it back, now this will shake up the op a bit but we believe it will be a fun great way to learn and get used to using Chain Of Command within the field more which is something that although is used, by the time the 2IC has taken charge, the Squad Leader is already back in the field, thanks to the fast flying of the aviation team. This will also be a  new way for people to prove themselves as a leader and show their potential to their Squad Leaders, Obviously, as we all know, this does not happen in all operations, however, will happen within operation Proving Force.
