Welcome to European Tactical Realism


European Tactical Realism is a miltary realism unit based around Arma 3. We play using light infantry combat tactics utilising a range of current military equipment,tactics and communication procedures,always seeking to achieve a balance between gameplay and fun.We run a 24/7 Public Arma Server which is available to all players (not just members/recruits) which incorporates,Group designed missions using a combination of third party mods and our own Group developed mods and functions for a challenging and immersive experience.

In addition, Recruits and Members may participate Operations created by the Members within our community, these Operations run every Saturday at 7pm UK.
Our Members/Recruits come from a wide range of countries including the US,UK,Germany and the Netherlands amongst others.We recognise that Arma is a game and have a very flat and relaxed structure and also that people have other interests and affiliations and therefore do permit ‘dual clanning’.

At the heart of our Community is our dedicated Teamspeak server (see link below or go to this address - tacticalrealism.eu:9999) and whether you are an Arma novice or an experienced player please feel free to hop on and say hi or ask for any help that you might need with Arma or to play on our Public Server.

To connect to our public server we use ARMA 3 Sync, a tutorial on how to use it and how to get our public repository for the server can be found HERE
