Depends if you want US Army or USMC since they have their own inventories:

US Army:

  • AH-6
  • AH-64
  • MH-6
  • UH-60
  • C-47

USMC:

  • UH-1Y
  • MH-60
  • AH-1Z
  • CH-53

Be aware that while the MH-60 and UH-60 are very similar they do have some differences most notably in the weapons available on the DAP variants

Kind of. It stands for "Direct Action Penetrator". It's a transport chopper with weapons strapped to it. If you see a Blackhawk or Seahawk with weapon pylons, it's a DAP

Valuable training. This is meat and gravy stuff, and every member of GOL needs to know how to do it. 

Im really pleased that more emphasis is being placed on mechanised actions. It brings a whole dimension into our gameplay. And it’s actually really simple once you get the hang of it. But as with most things it’s easy to learn but takes a long time to master.

Not much more to say regarding the mission.  

Taking airports in RL is famously tricky. It’s a huge tract of land to nail down, usually surrounded by a town or series of conurbations. It’s the same in Arma. 

My team was experienced and easy to lead. Fun was had.

Training:

Interesting to find these dull drills so readily received by a majority. Just as with CQB, it is apparent that we have a lot to do with regards to motorised and convoy ops - hat's why we'll revisit the basics quite heavily over the coming months.

If you have any further input, questions about specific aspects of motorised, please feel free to engage in discussion.

Over several consecutive weeks, we've seen a massive decline in attendance. We're down to 8-9 from 12-15 just a few weeks ago. Can anybody tell me what the reason for this is?

Mission:

@SoKkada

The mission was oversized. Considering our numbers and time we have to play these missions, there was a snowball's chance in hell we'd finish it. The battle for the air port terminal alone is enough for a full on Saturday Op.

Otherwise, I believe it was quite heavily Zeused. As a result, the enemy reacted well to our presence and kept reinforcing his positions. Constantly, we had to deal with exposed flanks. Enemy formations manoeuvered around us on numerous occasions, delaying our advance to the main objective buildings. I found this a very engaging experience that didn't leave much down time at all.

Supply lines were extremely precarious. Although a naval insert had been ordered, this proved to be an impossible task. Instead, I decided to insert, reinforce and supply the squad via the air. Thanks to @hoofed for doing that. This enabled us to manoeuver much more quickly and get some more fire support going on high value targets. From my perspective, this worked well and went a long way in supporting the ground effort, however I'm also aware that I could have gotten more use out of Angel had I focused on it more.

Teams were good. Got shit done, had fun.

Only 7/10 though for low attendance.

 

Sokkada and myself, as well as the TLs @Pilgrim and @unionjak need more feedback on the session. Thanks!

Re: attendance.

I’m guessing it’s the annual summer drop off....

On top of which, It only takes a few RL issues to see It slump.

Given those that HAVE attended, I wouldn’t say it’s down to training style..

We do need to tidy up the roster however. At some point.
