    Just wanted to take a second to say, officially, "Hello, I'm the new SPARTAC Liaison." I will be taking over for Gidget who has had to step away due to makin' money in real life. There are three main reasons you may need to contact the SPARTAC Liason. FIRST- You are new to ARMA and have no clue what's going on. You don't know what to do in game, you don't know how a radio works, you don't know which end of the gun points at the bad guy. No problems... I, too, was a complete noob in the ARMA world not that long ago. I'm still no super expert (actually, I'm still pretty noobish I think)... but I can get your feet on the ground and help you figure out what's what. Or, maybe you just don't know what to do about SPARTAC itself. How do you get involved? How do you become a part of the family? What do you do now that you've come to the website? I can help you there, too. For in game help, the best thing to do is let me know you've got some questions (see below how to reach me) and set aside some time after one of the weekend operations. We'll get you sorted, no probs. SECOND- You have an issue within SPARTAC. Another member and you have beef? Got a problem with how things are going in SPARTAC? Come see me and we can work it out so everyone is happy. I'm "THAT" guy. Doesn't matter if your problem is with a new member, an old vet, or Farsight himself... I'm the guy you come to with issues. The reason you come to me is to keep the other officer's plates empty so they can make ARMA things happen. That's a full time job as it is and this allows them to stay focused on providing everyone an enjoyable experience in and out of game. Any complaints, compliments, or suggestions you want to make about SPARTAC as a whole can come to me and I'll be sure to get that info on to where it needs to go as well. THIRD- You are a big hockey fan and like to talk about it. I live in Oklahoma and NO ONE here likes hockey except my wife and I. GO PENS!!!! Sooooooo..... with all that said, how do you reach me if you need to? The best way is to send me a PM here in the website. I check the site several times a day usually. If it's a little more urgent, then a message via steam would reach me quickest. I'm going to probably interact with you via text in some way, just be prepared. My time on TS is usually pretty sparse during the week, but if a chat is required, we can certainly get one going. Now that we've got that out of the way, don't be afraid to drop me a line if you need to. sparkstable SPARTAC Liaison

    Some thoughts from last night: Good plan, if I say so myself, but like any good plan it didn't survive contact with the enemy. In hindsight we were less than 5 minutes off in setting up the mines at the entrance of the village, which would have made all the difference in the world. Had I been quicker in getting the overwatch position clearing organized, it likely would have went swimmingly. I kept expecting Arch's team to run out of ammo, but ultimately only Sawtes ran low. Maybe we should always bring at least some disposable AT capability, just in case. Thanks to Farsight for the speedball delivery. We could have rolled in a little heavier equipped, we just weren't used to that level of enemy activity. Excellent strafing run by Viking. As close and as effective as you could ever want. From my perspective everyone performed awesome. All in all we accomplished the mission. The people getting dropped and the overwhelming enemy force took from the fun somewhat.

    Excellent job everyone! @Wolf2 you did a great job leading Gold Team. Wanted to make sure you knew that. And the whole comms thing... it's just a matter of practice. Most people let go early. It just makes it really hard to know if you're done talking, if you got shot and died, or what. Hope you didn't think I was angry or anything. But you did a fantastic job tonight. @Stillwater You and Blue Team did an amazing job helping relieve pressure off of Gold Team when they started to take the brunt of the attack. The ambush on the patrol was wicked. @Joe Those mortars were spot on. All in all... probably one of the smoothest successful missions I've seen since joining. Great job!! And @Trauma it was a really good OP. Felt balanced and success never seemed for sure until you and Joe picked us up at the end. The map was loaded with contacts so there was always this worry that we were about to be over run but the mortar team did a great job of helping reduce some of that pressure. Thanks for the fun mission!

    I pointed out that we got discombobulated once we got to the overlook. We were taking fire from quite a ways away and it got us mixed up. Also pointed out that tanks, when used right, are awesome; otherwise they are metal coffins. I think most people get a false sense of security in them (myself included). Infantry support would have been good, I agree. The tight quarters in the radio tower was death for us. Too small for the two tanks to provide close support. A better turnout allowing us two tanks with ground support would have been sick. As for the ammo... Arma gonna Arma. Shout out to Gidget for trying to sort that for us.

    MISSION BRIEFING 4/22/2018 8pm CST (WE ARE WHEELS UP @ 8) 22/04/2018 BACKGROUND INFORMATION After repeated operational failures, we've been forced to take up a less than desirable contract. The government of Gunkizli has reputation for being corrupt and the army ineffectual, however, they pay cash in U.S. currency. The region is in the throws of an Islamist lead insurgency, with Boko Haram pledging allegiance to ISIS and the black flag of jihad. We're being brought in to take back the initiative and turn the tide of the conflict. The reputation of ineptitude preceding the Army, it's best to consider ourselves alone out here. That means full self sufficiency and establishing positive relations with the civilians in the area, who have been ill treated by both sides of this conflict. While in country do not go off base unless it is enforce. We are outnumbered and out gunned. Good hunting. SIT REP: After meeting steep enemy assault we are low on supplies, and dwindling numbers.

    OPERATION BLACK GOLD (Community Ops Mission) MISSION BRIEFING 20180404 8pm CST BACKGROUND INFORMATION Fellow Spartans, Welcome to Takistan. At 0230 Local, NATO ISAF forces began receiving reports that ISIS has captured an oilfield located in Lalezar. This oilfield helps to provide a decent living for the locals in the surrounding areas. Currently, NATO has their hands full chasing the Taliban throughout the Afghan-Pakistan border, so we have been "greenlighted" to handle this one. Also, if we get this done, the local government has offered to pay us for our troubles. We have been tasked with clearing out all ISIS forces within the Oil Refinery. Simple, right? Now, though they may not be technologically advance, they make up for this with their numbers. So, grab your kit and lets take the fight to them. Mission & Execution: Time: 0900 Objectives: · Primary - Secure the Oilfield from ISIS forces. Rules Of Engagement: Element Lead's Discretion Threat Level: RED Insertion: ELEMENT LEADS DISCRECTION Respawn: ZEUS DISCRETION Uniform: Terrain appropriate camouflage Equipment: TEAM LEAD'S DISCRETION Requirements: RTO per squad or fireteam (turnout dictates) .
