Formed in 2003, VOLCBAT is modeled on 3 (Morton) Platoon, A Company, 1st Battalion The Volunteer Commandos, a British Army light infantry battalion attached to 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines.
Run by current and former UK Armed Forces members, we strike a balance of realism without the bollocks, using real world tactics and techniques adapted to the game and leaving out military formalities that don't enhance game play.
All our recruits attend a short training course to prepare them for operations, covering basic infantry skills such as target indication, formations and fire and manoeuvre. Advanced training is organised by our Armed Forces members to keep tactics up to date with the latest British military doctrine.
Every Wednesday and Sunday at 2000 UK Time
Our missions and campaigns are built in-house using our comprehensive mission framework. This creates a balance between challenging game play, immersive scenarios and fun.
Our mod collection is hosted on the Steam Workshop. A combination of community and custom mods provide a full suite of British weapons, equipment and vehicles whilst popular enhancements such as ACE and TFAR improve game play and quality of life.
