Who are we? 501st Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division & Supporting Assets.
A European Time Zone (CET) Realism Unit based on the US Army Airborne. That`s unique on it's own!
When were we created? The 501st IR was created in June of 2017 by a group of men & woman with the goal to create a U.S. Army Realism unit with the same quality and feel of some of the great American units out there, but specifically in range for most European time zones.
When do we play? The 501st IR conducts operations every Wednesday and Sunday starting from 19:30 to 22:30 Central European Time. In addition to these two operation days we conduct all kinds of training exersises on Friday's starting from 19:30 to 22:00 (trainings are not mandatory, but highly recommended).
Our Mission makers create specific Campaigns and scenarios for our members to enjoy with an ever developing storyline including roleplayers and pre-made mission briefings (OPORDS).
Why should you join the 501st?: Our aim is and will always be to give each individual player the experience of having your own billet/function and team which you conduct operations, excersises and trainings with, which usually result in some fantastic experiences and friendship along the way.

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!
