State of the Battalion
2017… what a roller coaster year. The Battalions first official year since being established in our current form. We have grown unbelievably in membership numbers in that time. We have expanded our Server footprint both into new games and in the games central to our group.
We saw the establishment of our Leadership Group (SNCOs and Officers) and continue to expand as deserving members prove themselves dedicated and level headed enough to take more central roles.
Our Donations targets have been achieved at every junction. There are several Rifles who continue to dig deep for the rest of us. I encourage everyone to put in whatever amount they can and help take some of the pressure off our regular donors. The success of our Donations stream has allowed us to go forward with confidence that this Battalion can continue to expand and service all our members with the servers that we have all come to love and enjoy.
We saw the start of our Monthly Meetings for both NCOs and Officers. Creating an official platform for your ideas or concerns and giving HQ the means to address any and all things relating to our group.
We saw the start of our Official You tube and Discord channels. Discord proving an invaluable resource for communication and community involvement.
I am so proud of our Group and how far we have come. I am honoured to be your Commanding Officer and fight alongside you all and am certain that 2018 shall bring many more successes for the [REDeye] 1st Rifles Battalion.
COL ANZAC Ace
Our Tuesday Ops always sees a decent turnout with budding Zeus’s running their own missions. The last month or so has seen several mission set in the Iron Front mod with a WW2 setting. Some excellent content and game play has been presented to the Battalion in these Ops.
We encourage all Rifles to get on and support your fellow Rifles both on the battlefield and with their development as Zeus’s. The outcome can only be positive for this Battalion with more content creators and involvement from our members.
The ‘Wednesday Weekly’ and ‘Thursday Thrashout’ Insurgency Ops
Report from WO1 Ramirez:
Fellow Rifles, it is my pleasure to report, the success our Battalion has had on the front lines. Week after week, we have battled through harrowing terrains, terrible odds, and freakishly good firefights. Throughout this month, we have seen how bold and courageous each and everyone of our comrades are. Testing out arsenal changes, new maps, and new physical limitations, that only improve the realism aspect of the game.
Our Wednesday and Thursday events have been a constant in this Battalion. And we asked our CO exactly what was the reason behind these missions. And I quote:
“INS is the base game of our Battalion. It is what has ultimately brought our Group together. Weekend Ops are for the more excitable, involved and technical. with a weekday setting I hoped to create a constant battleground, a friendly and welcoming place for our members to jump on for a quick game or a long one. Breaking up the week for everyone with the camaraderie that we have all come to enjoy. INS gives us that framework.” –
And that is exactly what these events have been for our many weekday warriors. As we have different schedules, those who cannot join us on the weekends, always have the mid week, to battle, and show the skills they have forged through lead and iron.
On the field, we have seen changes server side that has only improved the experience in the milsim environment we have been yearning to achieve. As HQ has been coming up with many ideas, it makes sense that the mid week battles would get these innovations as well. It is apparent, that squad structure is constantly checked, as our enemies are ever getting the advantage.
On the upside, a tactical advantage has been gained with the addition of the LMG suppression mechanics, wherein if applied correctly, can heavily influence a firefight. As squad movement can now be properly obtained when enemies are pinned down by a barrage of bullets.
Furthermore, the battalion has seen many new faces on the ops nights, and new leaders have emerged. And with the addition of a training server, we have seen a lot of improvement in our Battalions marksmanship. We can only assume that others will follow suit, as we implement more measures to improve our rifles ability to maintain battles.
To close, this year was a huge success for the [REDeye] 1st Rifles, and we can’t wait to see more.
Friday night Fights
With our custom theater changes reworking the game play we have seen a huge uptake in popularity for INS PvP Ops. Many Rifles have been heard exclaiming about how intense, scary or exciting the Ops are. The PUSH game mode has been reworked to give it a checkpoint type of feel. With each cap taking 2:30 min to complete if uninterrupted, it allows for the defending team to counterattack the objective if thrown off it. We have seen some incredible rounds coming down to the wire. Proving that the settings are close to final and the balance of time and tickets is spot on.
Given its popularity both in house and in the public domain HQ have decided to dedicate Server #3 to PvP. When not set as [FnF] the server is open to the public. We have included some very good Bots to help with party starting when 1 or more players join. We have seen and are sure to continue seeing the popularity of this game mode and server increase into next year.
ARMA 3 Campaign
Report from MAJ Jazza:
The New WW2 Arma 3 Campaign:
With the introduction of the new Arma 3 Tactical Operation server and the capability of the server to handle the vast number of mods required, a new Arma 3 Campaign has begun.
The premise behind the campaign is to provide an interactive operation that will run over a couple of months which will follow, at a high level, the battles and movements of Britain, America and Russia (and potential more countries) throughout WW2. The idea behind the campaign came from none-other than WO2 Natalia and was developed and revised by a number of members of the Battalion.
How it works:
HQ will be given a number of potential battles to be held based on timelines and previous battles and positions of enemy troops and allied troops. Once HQ has made a decision on where our REDeye battalion will be deployed a full write-up will be provided to all members about the battle and any intel along with it. IT IS REQUIRED that you read this before the operation start. The battle will play out as any normal operation.
Victories will result in the battalion moving towards our next objective on the map and onto new battles. Losses incurred in a battle will result in the battalion falling back to a friendly held territory. Different maps will have different amounts over victories required to push forward and to be pushed back. Larger maps will also go on for longer amounts of time and smaller maps for smaller amounts of time.
It is imperative that all members know that, like WW2, resources are scarce. This means that all resources (fuel, cars, tanks, ammo) will carry over from one operation to the next. If you run out of ammo in an operation you will spawn with no ammo in the next.
This is a completely dynamic operation and the first of its kind that the Battalion as endeavoured on. Ensure to join these operations when you can so we can fill out the server and push these operations to their limits!
If you have any questions regarding these operations please reach out to WO2 Natalia La’Faux (Lead on the project) or MAJ Jazza.
Arsenal theater changes
Report from MAJ Flyer:
After a good two months of testing custom theater settings in the Coop servers most major issues that needed fixing have been fixed, at least the ones that don’t require re-modelling or re-animating. The most recent changes of porting over some of the movement and suppression settings from the PVP servers to Coop have been reduced or removed in some cases, mainly as while there are some that loved the added difficulty there also some that found the changes too jarring. So, as we aim to keep everybody in the community happy on our servers, changes have been made to hopefully find a nice middle ground that everyone can enjoy.
Main changes to movement are:
– You can sprint continuously, however speed reduces over time and long sprints will incur reduced accuracy briefly on stopping. So short sprints are still recommended
– Faster stamina regain
– Fall damage is back more forgiving
-Suppression changes are:
– Reduced amount of sway effect when suppressed
– Reduced time of suppression effect to fade
– Slightly higher resistance to suppression
Thanks to everybody who has been on the servers testing out the changes and especially those that have provided useful feedback and suggestions over the last few months.
For a ‘new to the changes’ perspective we have a report from WO2 Sheepies:
Over the past month, the roles and arsenal in Co-op has gotten a major overhaul in REDi servers.
The roles has been changed from vanilla, where everyone was under one squad before to now where there are two squads with different priorities. The point team and overwatch team. This change in roles allows REDi member to go through a much more military-like experience in insurgency, allowing for communication between squad leads to be critical in the success of the mission, and most importantly a clear picture of who is the commander of their respective squads.
The arsenal has been changed from vanilla, where the roles before had at most 3 unique weapons. With the change of the role/squad system, it has lead to a change in weaponry as well, with specialist roles coming into place, this has resulted in additional unique weapons added. This allows for a more diverse gameplay that also integrates realism as with the great variety of maps we have, requires compatible weapons of different characteristics, thus the arsenal is a necessity with the addition of custom maps in the map rotation.
Introducing our Insurgency Training Server
Report from LT Pol Tuurd:
As you are all probably aware we have been running a training server aimed at getting all basic skills improved IE rifle unaided and handgun, no RPG’s no mollies. This gives us a chance to hone basic skills without the constant threat of random death, we focus on movement and small squad tactics breach call’s etc.
Please feel free to book a spot if you can, depending on numbers we can run one or two a week.
ROE in training server
NO MG’s: NO SHOTGUNS: NO SNIPERS RIFLES: NO Magnified scopes (iron sights pref )
Grenade 1 per soldier for room clearing only (except last man standing)
Flash 1 per soldier for room clearing only (except last man standing)
Bring you best squad tactics, get a squad together and practice your movement
No automatic weapons (single fire only)
Pistol is compulsory (or you will be switching to knife when told)
Move as a squad when and how you are told, server side settings are the same as other servers (short burst for running, drop damage etc)
Most of all listen to what is being said, if not you will be removed from server (there are no Rambo’s in the training server, it’s teamwork)
In COOP maps 1 man down switch to pistols
In CONQUER maps no switch to pistols. We identify caches only, we use the points to bring back team mates, once captured evacuate point to allow bots to retake, last 10-15 mins we blow caches and capture points. Turns out to be nearly an hour of fighting and killing.
Once completed the training officer will let command know and you will have the letter ‘T’ attached to your Battalion Rifles ID number.

We can all be assured of many victories to come with Members of the WO2s caliber at the helm.
Warrant Officer class two Spinikar.
I quote CAPT Pawnda, “RFP: SGT Spinikar is a Rifle that can be depended upon. He utilises effective and to-the-point comms and never has a word out of place. He follows orders to the tee and above all takes care of the squad members around him; this promotion is well deserved. He is an excellent example of what a reliable Rifle should be, especially during Arma 3 Operations.”

Warrant Officer class two Derryl.
The WO2 has proven his ability and commitment time and again. He is a solid tactician and leader who shows urgency and a clear head when approaching any situation. His mature approach is exactly what we are looking for in the leadership group of our Battalion.
I quote an anonymous NCO “The SGT has shown me that he is able to capably lead his team with distinction. That is one of the key critereas into becomming a SGT. On the 13SN server while I was under a different name, I overheard the SGT being “shit-talked” because he was “military tryhard” using the REDi name. Now the most obvious route one would take would to be defending one’s pride. What I was most impressed on was that he instead of defending his pride, he defended [REDi]1R instead. This is what impressed me the most in my career in REDi, and I whole-heartedly believe that this should not go unreported.”
Well done WO2.
Warrant Officer second class Slatery.
I quote LT Acki, “RFP SGT Slatery. This SGT spends countless hours in the ARMA world ever ready to offer a helping hand whenever needed. His broad knowledge of ARMA and the MODS we use are exceptional and are a credit to the dedication this rifle has for our battalion and community. These traits along with his well known tactical presence and medical skills certainly make him a fine candidate for WO2.”
CAPT GentileGinger, “RFP for SGT Slatery according to my notes over the last several months he has consistently and constantly been behind the scenes and at the helm of our ARMA battlespace, with a light-hearted and cheerful approach in his squad dynamic and latent potential for leadership evidenced by fluent and tactical use of comms and awareness SGT Slatery has shown he’s ready to strap on a new set of tags and join the team of senior NCO’s. An excellent and obvious addition SGT Slatery has the full confidence of this CAPT, both in his abilities on and off the field, and in his personal qualities in the social dynamic of [REDeye] and our eventts.”
WO2 Spinikar, “RFP: SGT Slatery has proven to be consistently reliable in the Arma 3 space and has earned my respect. His ability to lead has been proven, and I always find having the SGT in my squad makes my job easier as he takes his orders, organises the squad and gets it done.”
WO1 Ramirez, “RFP SGT SLatery to WO2: citation: The SGT embodies all that [REDeye] stands for. He’s ever present, ever the teacher, the student and the IT help for all Rifles coming into the arms 3 battle space. The SGT has, in all this time, been dedicated to the Battalion and has shown tactical brilliance that we only see in the best of the best.

I quote 2LT Acki, “RFP CPL Choonga. I find CPL Choonga’s approach to leadership to be consistently cool, calm and collected and his orders are direct and to the point, keeping his squad confident of victory at all times. CPL Choonga shares his knowledge and wisdom amongst his fellow rifles where ever possible and encourages his team along the way. I expect CPL Choonga to go far in the Battalion and promotion to SGT will just be the next step of many more to come.”
HQ have been very impressed with the SGTs approach to the Battle and his Rifles. He shows all the qualities required of a SGT and is an excellent NCO in our Battalion. Continue to guide the Rifles around you SGT and be sure you are learning all you can from the Officers around you.

The CPLs work has been outstanding in assisting new RECs to join and to understand our SOPs. The CPL has proven to me time and time again of his ability to lead by his actions and example, direct and mentor those around him and is ready to take on even greater challenges and responsibilities.”
2LT Acki, “RFP CPL Pentagon. The CPL has shown me time and again he excellent leadership and communications skills during the many hours he puts in on the Insurgency servers. He shows great patience with new rifles and has all the qualities I would expect from a SGT. He actively recruits and contributes where he can both in and out of game. I can see great things from CPL Pentagon moving forward in the Battalion.”
Nothing more to say. Well done SGT.
I quote 2LT Cold, “RFP CPL Fellowrefugee to SGT. The Rifle is a long serving CPL that has indeed impressed many leadership group members. He has an excellent grasp on the ROE and SOP, using it with efficiency and displaying great comms while doing so. The Rifle not only leads with excellence but keeps an eye on lower ranked Rifles and moulds them into the Rifles the Battalion is looking for. Fellowrefugee far exceeds all expectations of the CPLs role, becoming a SGT should be a better fit. Excellent work.”
HQ could not agree more. The SGT has proven to all in the Battalion his commitment and dedication to this group. The step up to SGT brings with it increased responsibilty for the Rifles around you. We are sure that SGT FellowRefugee will be an excellent SGT for us all.

I quote WO2 Sheepies-The Sacred, “RFP: LCPL XTrollier . The LCPL has shown me on the map INS_Resistance that he is an excellent defense co-ordinator, able to strategical place overwatch team into effective positions as well as aiding the duty NCO SGT Deryll in command. He has shown respect to the rank and the best of all is that he knows how to joke around when appropirate. This attitude is one of the key in growing our gaming community alowing people who play alongside him enjoy themselves as well as adhering to our values.”
I quote WO2 Spinikar, “RFP: LCPL Breadboard to CPL. Joining the [REDeye] ARMA Server this evening, I found LCPL Breadboard directing a reasonable size group of public players in REDi doctrine and ROE. I was impressed with the LCPL Leadership and Mentorship, helping REC’s and PTE’s alike to improve. He was able to lead both on the small and large scale. After a quick Boot Camp run down, LCPL Breadboard then took his new RECs into battle leading them with distinction and valor. LCPL Breadboard has exceeded all expectations of his Rank, and has shown that he will make an excellent CPL. As a CPL, continue to keep moulding those around. Well done.”
I quote 2LT Itzjake, “RFP for LCPL Blak-Dragon. The LCPL is a Rifle to be reckoned with and if used correctly, is an invaluable asset to any squad.

The LCPL embodies our ROE’s and is able to lead and communicate with ease on the battlefield. The LCPL will be a welcome addition to our talented NCO’s.”
WO1 Ramirez, “RFP LCPL Black-Dragon. Has been on point in the last few weeks with his leadership.

I quote CAPT GentilGinger, “RFP LCPL CoolCabbage. The LCPL showed excellent leadership tonight and is a Rifle that isn’t afraid to push himself. He stand beside his teammates in every circumstance, a worthy addition to the rank of CPL.”
The CPL shows an excellent understanding of the Battalion and our ROE. The step up to CPL brings with it a heavier focus on mentoring the Rilfes around you. We can all be assured that CPL CoolCabbage is up for the challenge.
I quote SGT KUDDLES, “RFP LCPL GooglePlus. I have watched the LCPL lead in ministry he has shown amazing coms and leadership taking care of every Rifle and making sure our rule no man left behind is enforced 100% of the time, he is more than deserving of the CPL title.”
