Who are we?

Mission Statement

To provide a fun, realistic and authentic Australian Arma 3 MILSIM experience whilst building a fair, persistent and active community of mature gamers.

Our Vision

SOCOMD, as an Australian Arma 3 MILSIM group, aims to provide members with the most authentic Australian MILSIM experience by emulating the organisational structure, training methods and planning procedures utilised by actual military forces. Every member will be proficiently trained, according to their rank, to follow standard operating procedures that are realistic, adjusted for Arma 3 and have been reviewed by former military personnel.

Who are We?

Special Operations Command (SOCOMD) is an Australian based Arma 3 MILSIM unit that is structured around the Platoon level 2nd Commando (2CDO) Regiment of the Australian Defence Force. SOCOMD specialises largely in CO-OP Arma 3 gameplay; utilising equipment, strategies and tactics based on those employed by the Australian Military.

We don't enforce strict MILSIM rules like addressing members by rank or by saluting Officers. We do however, pride ourselves on maintaining a fun, immersive and authentic Arma 3 combat experience - yes, this means that good old fashioned Aussie banter is welcome, but when the bullets start flying, it's time to get our A-Game on.

With SOCOMD's original founder being a former member of the RAAF's Airfield Defence Guards (ADG's), and other members having either served previously or are currently serving in the Australian Defence Force, this is the unit for you if you want an immersive and authentic Australian Arma 3 MILSIM digital combat experience.

When do we play?

Here's a breakdown of our week:

Friday Night - Campaign Mission/Official Operation

  • On Friday nights we have a Campaign Mission.
  • Begins 8:00pm (AEST). Be on teamspeak 15 miutes before start.
  • Concludes with a debrief.

Wednesday/Thursday Night - Training Night

  • Beginning 7:00 PM (AEST).
  • Concluding when training is complete.

Any day - Server Maintenance/Other Games/Mini-ops

  • Usually no activities, it is reserved for server and mod maintenance.
  • Depending on the availability of SOCOMD's Officers, training or operations can be held on request.
  • We encourage members to run their own mini-ops and these are the days they tend to run them, mini-ops are a great way to get to know people and test out your skills.

What if I can't make the scheduled training or mission times?

If you have the time, come and hang-out with us on TeamSpeak, there is usually always something entertaining going on. We have multiple games that the community plays, you most likely will find a gaming buddy. If there's something in particular you would like to do in Arma 3, simply find someone with the rank of SGT or above, or any of HQ Operations Groups, or a member of SOCOMD's Training Staff, and ask them to organise something, such as training or a mini-op.

If a trainer is willing, and you can't make the usual training nights, you can organise training on an off-night. Please be mindful that the trainers time is valuable, and this would work best if there was more than one person who needed training.
