About Us

European Tactical Realism is a relaxed realism unit based around Arma 3.
We run Weekly Operations (Saturdays 7PM GMT) and host a 24/7 public server running over a dozen of custom-made missions.

A Realism Arma 3 Unit That's Relaxed

We are not a full-on milsim unit, we are pretty relaxed in our Operations

  • No - "Yes Sir, No Sir!"
  • No specialisations. Choose a different role each Operation - whether you want a command role, to be a pilot or just want to chill out and have fun as a grunt.
  • Good banter when shit isn't hitting the fan.

Ask us anything on our Channels!

Public Server

Hop on our 24/7 Public server and take our custom-made missions for a spin.
Best way to get yourself some backup is to organise with people on our teamspeak or discord server.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We play as a different force type/country each Operation. This means we get a diversity of equipment and assets.

    This will make each Operation a different experience.

    However Operations can use other mods as well if the creator wants to.
