Community Update No.11

30MAR20 1815 hrs UTC+0


Hello all! We have had a lot of people join us recently and in light of the current epidemic then we anticipate a few more to come our way. I'd like to request that people keep any jokes around this subject to a minimum as there may be members with friends or family affected by this outbreak. 

The last community update was in January and since then we've finished our Ardennes operation, won two PvPs, and had three module IIIs - we've been pretty busy! Moving forward we have an Okinawa operation coming up that will last 4-5 weeks. The 4th and 5th of April will be dedicated to familiarisation with USMC equipment and also some new roles - not only new roles in terms of USMC organisation but also people will be able to switch around roles and try new roles during these events. I implore aspiring leaders to step up the challenge. During this time of Okinawa, we will continue our regular British Airborne events on the other days where there will be some normality with our sessions. 

I request that all new NCOs reach out to myself to organise careers advisor and JNCO training so we can get you up to speed.

We have officially filled all open roles within Red Devils apart from two roles within B Company HQ, one role within No.4 Platoon HQ, and two pilot slots - all these slots are available for applications. We are now opening No.4 Platoon, No.4 Section. This new section will require NCOs before people begin to get placed in so please get your applications in following the usual path through "Enlisted Careers" on the forums (http://reddevilsarma.org/forumdisplay.php?fid=67). If anyone has any questions about an application please get in contact.

The overall plan for expansion in the future is to build up to at least three and a half active and full sections before opening up No.5 Platoon. Two sections from No.4 Platoon will likely be moved straight over - in their completeness - to the new platoon. Both platoons will then run with two sections until further expansion in the future.

For the NCOs: let's aim to get sections to their peak performance in the coming months. Ensure personnel are relaying all callouts, are familiar with all formations, and are competent with section-level tactics. We're in really good shape right now and I want to raise the bar again.

Thank you all for making Red Devils what it is and let's continue to push our limits.

[Image: 1920px-UK_Military_Medal_ribbon.svg.png]

The following personnel have been awarded the MILITARY MEDAL:

Lance Corporal S. Cottitto

Quote:Throughout the months of January to February while fighting as a Paratrooper in the Battle of Bure during the Ardennes Campaign, Lance Corporal S. Cottitto performed excellently in his service to his section and the platoon. He demonstrated effective leadership in the face of overwhelming odds, including while his platoon’s position was threatened to be overrun by enemy forces and supplies were low.

On multiple occasions during the prolonged battle, Lance Corporal S. Cottitto took command of the section when his Section Commander was thought to have been killed or rendered unconscious. He immediately disregarded any doubt in his own ability to lead and rallied the remaining troops to keep on fighting. His initiative in continuing the fight despite losses to his men resulted in giving the section the inspiration to keep on fighting and finally rout the enemy from the town of Bure.

Although there is no specific event to single out his heroics demonstrated throughout this campaign, over the distance of this event Lance Corporal S. Cottitto has shown the true qualities of a Red Devils member. He has done this by showing love and respect for the men under his care and by demonstrating the spirit and courage necessary to lead them whenever the need arises.

His dedication through attendance, communication and combat goes above and beyond what is required for his role and through his trials and tribulations Lance Corporal S. Cottitto has proven to be one of the best soldiers in the platoon.


Well done to all.

Community Update No.10

14JAN20 0105 hrs UTC+0


On the 25th January 2020 we'll be embarking on the first mission in our operation string for the Ardennes Offensive. This will be a four-mission long string that will likely end with a fifth event as a PvP, however, this is still being organised. On top of this, we are also scheduling another PvP with the 23rd Panzer Division, likely to occur late February time - the scenario for this is to be chosen during a meeting this weekend. After our operation string finishes, we'll be covering some basic training points, ensuring we're on top of our game as we move forward; we'll also be covering some PvP themed training sessions.

A few roles are opening within Company HQ: runner and wireless operator. Job descriptions for both of the roles can be found in the usual place in the Enlisted Careers category on the forums. The Company Runner job is a special one where at certain times they will be mounted on a Welbike. In addition to these new roles, I'd like to take the time to advertise the medic roles available and if anyone would like to become a medic (recruits included) they should get their application in.

If anyone has any ideas for the group then please make sure you let us know, either through a poll in the Questionnaires and Polls category on the forums or in the #member-ideas channel on Discord. We're always looking to improve and to have new ideas come our way - though be warned that people may not agree with you!

I'd like to give my gratitude to everyone who has been posting media in our #arma-unit-media channel on Discord. Media like this showcases the group and the environment that we play in (even showing some of the bugs that we encounter on the way) and can really help our goal of recruitment of new members. Speaking of new members, we have a lot of new recruits who have recently joined us and many are on track to complete their module III assessment on Saturday - I wish good luck to you all. Current members should prepare to have fresh faces coming into their sections soon and you should try and help these new members integrate as successfully as possible. They are being thrown straight into the deep end in the Ardennes and some may require your assistance. 

Amendment 1: We have recently updated our fire rates and information on fire control orders. These changes can be found in Module I on pages 20 and 21. The changes to fire rates can be found below:

[Image: 1cb00549fa2f009fbc1d80bef4551b8e.png]

Amendment 2: Coming on Sunday.
After the ceremony on Sunday, there will be an amendment to the end of this update.

Ready for Anything.
