The 17th Marine Expeditionary Unit (SOC) is a ArmA 3 tactical realism unit based on a Marine Corps Marine Expeditionary Force (Special Operations Capable). We are a active, disciplined, and professional group that strives to excel in stressful and challenging environments. As a Realism unit we strive to maintain a high level of immersion during operations and training not only in our attitude but also with the vast array of maps, mods, and game modes.
New Recruits go through an Assessment and Selection (A&S) process making sure they can complete the tasks asked of them. After A&S a Recruit will then go to the School of Infantry(SOI). At SOI recruits will learn the basics of Patrolling, Tactical Combat Casulty Care, Navagation, etc. Once SOI is complete a new member will be able to attend Unit Operations but will still have to complete ITC before earning a slot on the team. Individual Training Course (ITC) teaches advanced techniques such as Diving, Static line and steerable parachute (HALO,LALO,HAHO) jumps, Driving, and Unconventional Warefare. If the new member has selected a specialty role within the unit such as Speical Amphibious Reconnissance Corpsman (S.A.R.C) the will begin training in that role once they complete ITC and they have experience within the team, unless the selected billet is unavailable.
We currently have Marine Raider Team 8234 as our main element and a Air Combat Element (HMH-466 Wolfpack, HMLA-369 Gunfighters, and VMFA-323 Death Rattlers). We train every Friday at 8 P.M. Central, and have operations every Saturday at 8 P.M Central. Currently we are only recruiting people that are 18+ years of age. If you are interested in applying join us on our teamspeak at 17thmeu.teamspeak3.com, or at our website. If you want an active, mature, professional, and disciplined unit then the 17th Marine Expeditionary Unit (SOC) is the right unit for you!
