Hey guys,

As some of you may have noticed, management have been arranging over the course of a month now with a few other groups a Joint-Operation. You'll recognize two of the groups, Phalanx (German - Aperios) and Sicarius Elitist (American - 'MERT' Group). We'll also be joined by two additional groups (although I believe they've now merged into the former) FJK33 and 16. FschjK (Both German - Infantry).

Rik is designing the mission, which will be utilising some custom assets he's been developing for us and ze Germans. The mission itself is set in the Cold War, partly so the Germans can be Bundeswehr and ourselves as British Army of the Rhine with American MERT/Logistics supporting. It's also partly to reduce communication complexity. It works well that Rik was making this mission before considering using it for the Joint-Op.

We're expecting a sizeable turnout, ranging from a modest estimate of 50 members to the potential of 70. We'll be having a separate and streamlined repo for this operation, for the courtesy of the other groups. There will be no late additional attachments. The role-sheet will be as is.

We'll be deploying as a German Mechanised Platoon, British Mechanised Platoon, British Armoured Troop (with possibility of some German crews), American Heli Logistics (with some German crew) and Company Command (mixture of English/Germans).

The two dates you need to dash in your dairies with your fluffy pink pens are:
  • February the 18th ( We'll be doing the pre-op test a week early, before our OP on that day)
  • February the 25th (Actual mission night, starting at our usual time)

More finesse details will be announced closer to the operation, so please do not get worked up about the "ORBAT" or the equipment we'll be using yet. I know as I type this, some of you can't resist from asking regardless. Don't. There's no calling slots early either, as there's a few considerations we'll have to announce for certain slots. Again, that'll be closer to the OP. Also calling slots early is a douchey thing.

Before anyone asks: play style will be that of our normal operations; first person, no hud, one life etc. Y'know the drill.

The joint operation is coming up, with the  Pre-Op Test this Saturday before the normal Pre-Op Test. They won't overlap so you will be able to atttend both. We strongly encourage every member who wants to attend the operation to attend this test. The more people we can test with, the closer the situation will be to the one in the actual Operation and the less likely it will be that things go wrong when it matters.
You might already have spotted the appearance of the operation on the website calendar, and if you are already sure you're going to attend on the joint op then please do take the liberty of clicking attend so that we may get a slight indication of how many will be joining the Operation.
Something else very important is the joint operation repository that has been set up by Alkali, which has all the necessary mods we need but is as small as we could get. This repository has everything you need, including map, except for the optional pack. This means you will just have to tick this add-on group, if you wish the optionals and nothing else. If you have any issues please ask others for help on TeamSpeak or the relevant forum board. If you spot any possible issues with the repository please tell us, preferably via PM. Do not use this forum topic for tech support or reporting issues.

The auto config URL is:

Make sure you install and download everything this week before Saturday so that everyone can make sure they don't have any issues. Should you forget to install the repository and still try to join the operation your spot will be given away to someone who did install the repository. This ties in with the limited amount of spots we have.
I would also like to stress that this is a joint operation, and everybody is expected to treat the Germans/Austrians/Swiss and Americans that we will be playing with, with a healthy degree of respect and be patient even when things aren't going a 100% like we expected. I would also like for everyone to pick a role they're comfortable in to show that we are a capable group.
To invigorate your hype here is a small teaser picture of the new goodies we have, a pair of FV4201 Chieftains provide overwatch for a platoon of FV432's moving into a town during an assault:

In case the website butchers the autoconfig url for anyone else like it did for me then the url for the repo is:

http:// db.thewreckingcrew. eu/jointop/.a3s/autoconfig

Remove the space before eu and before db. hopefully that will let you guys see it without the forum software messing it up.

I'm the public server manager. I might forget to remove that from this signature when I inevitably go insane.

Thanks Hobbs, I've edited Saxons message so the link is no longer broken.

In order to ensure a good number of sign ups, will the role sheet go up earlier to accommodate/allow movement and flexibility?
