Who are we? 501st Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division & Supporting Assets.
Want to know more about the unit or interested in joining?
Not just Infantry!
When joining the 501st IR Realism Unit you will first go through the 'One Station Unit Training' after completing your ''Basic Recruit Training''. When you have passed the OSUT you have the option to either join the Infantry or apply for any of the open Billets such as Combat Medic, Pilot, Engineer, Marksman or our Mechanized section. You`ll also be able to join the Unit Staff to help out the unit in your own way.(if there are openings). Perhaps you`ll be our next Instructor!
When applying for a Pilot slot within the 82nd Aviation Regiment you will be following a seperate 'Training Program' where you will be trained to fly both combat and transport missions. This also applies for the 73rd Cavarly Regiment (Mechanized section).
New billets are regulary opened and closed, so make sure to also keep a lookout when you are a graduated member if something new or old opened up!
OSUT: One Station Unit Training
Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training combined in one.
A training schedule set up so everyone will be able to join our ARMA 3 unit as a trained soldier. Based on real tactics and theory from the U.S. Army and NATO, OSUT is made for both the experienced and in-experienced individuals with realism/milsim units in Arma 3. Completely new to Arma 3 and/or realism gaming? Our staff will spend their (extra) time to get you up to speed on our protocols and tactics so you can quickly join our ranks and experience true realism gaming!
