About USEC

The USEC website is a centerpiece of the group

USEC was opened on 1 April 2002 as a division of the now defunct Unity Virtual Aviation Community. USEC conducts simulated military operations in a role-playing environment for mature players. Member's achievements and stats are recorded and rewarded to give a complete virtual military career. USEC members conduct operations on the Arma 3 platform with an emphasis on realism and challenge. Our doctrine is inspired by real world tactics, but built from the ground up for our virtual platforms.

Force Groups

USEC currently operates four force groupings:

Each of these Force Groups is made up of a number of specific units and is commanded by a Force Commander. Currently a number of units offer Arma 3 as a gaming platform to simulate operations.

Supported Units

The following Units use Arma 3 as a gaming platform:

Life at USEC

Enlistment

To enlist at USEC applicants must first submit an application, and then complete the Basic Recruit Exam. This exam consists of 30 questions relating to the USEC Standing Orders. This ensures new applicants are familiar with the USEC environment before joining missions. Applicants are required to register at the USEC forums, where they can gain access to assistance they might need while completing the initial training. Applicants should also join USEC TeamSpeak to talk to our members. Our members are worldwide, so you can often find someone able to help you.

Once they have completed the Basic Recruit Exam, members are promoted to the rank of Recruit and await assignment to a unit. Upon approval of the recruit's application they will be assigned to the appropriate unit, and may be required to complete additional training in their chosen platform of operations.

Training

Training is overseen by the Directorate of Training. UX501 conducts infantry training on a weekly basis, while UX152 and UX411 conduct periodic recruitment drives from within USEC. Nobody can join UX411 or UX152 without having served as an infantryman first. This ensures all members understand the virtual battlespace.

Training is a mix of multi-choice examinations completed online through the website, and practical assessments held in game with an instructor. At the end of most training a ribbon is usually awarded.

Operations

Training operations are conducted every week on our dedicated server. Sessions are usually password protected to ensure only USEC personnel are able to participate. Every few months a Deployment is simulated, comprising a combined effort between most Force Groups to achieve overall strategic objectives. Most Deployments result in some degree of Land Forces being deployed. During deployments, personnel are able to earn a variety of ribbons and medals.

Land Force Group

The Land Force Group uses Arma 3 as its official gaming platform to simulate land operations. The Land Force Group represents the units within USEC that operate under Land Warfare Doctrine. Land forces include personnel, weapons platforms, vehicles, and support elements operating on land to accomplish assigned missions and tasks. USEC operates a number of units that simulate Land Forces either separately or as part of Joint operations.

The Land Force Group consists of 2 operational squadrons, the UX-501 "Royal Lancers", UX-505 "Ghouls".

UX501 received the AAV in January 2009

Air Force Group

The Air Force Group uses Arma 3 as its official gaming platforms to simulate operations. The Air Force Group represents the units within USEC that operate under Air Warfare Doctrine. Aerial warfare is the use of military aircraft and other flying machines in warfare, including military airlift of cargo to further the national interest. USEC operates a number of gaming platforms that simulate both combat and non-combat roles within Air Warfare.

The Air Force Group consists of a single operational squadron, UX152 "Little Angels".
