A Royal Army Corps of Sahrani (RACS) AH-1Z is on the hunt for its next prey in this screenshot by community legend Viper1Zero. We wouldn't want to see this helicopter crest a ridge with us it its sights!

Arma Community member Timo has recently been sharing some photos from their trip to the Greek island of Lemnos, the inspiration for Arma 3's Altis terrain. This one shows the real-world location for the in-game Kavala castle. How did we do with our re-creation of the area?

Members of 3rd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment are shown during the Battle of Mogadishu in this image by Bossukun. The vintage gear is an absolute vibe.

Over the holidays, the 101st Airborne Vietnam Milsim Unit conducted Operation Jingle Bells III. A C-119 carrying the Battalions Christmas mail was shot down over Doung Island, and Cobra Platoon was deployed to recover it.

The 6th Virtual Fighter Wing also conducted a holiday-themed operation in December. Their operation was a bit more outlandish, for they played as a series of Mall Santas sent to rescue Mariah Carey, and to seal her away for hibernation until the next Holiday season. Why Mall Santas, who would have to tolerate Christmas themed music all December long, would volunteer to save her is beyond us!

European Tactical Realism recently conducted their first operation of 2024 - a Second World War offering called Operation Flatbed that had players taking part as Easy Company, 506 PIR, 101st Airborne. You can follow ETR on X for more info on any upcoming operations.
