The 16th Cavalry Regiment is a long-standing community that has built itself a strong tradition and sense of camaraderie through many games and platforms through its existance. Initially founded as a Napoleonic warfare unit for the Mount and Blade series, the community converted to an Arma 2 unit in late 2012 and early 2013. Since then we have carved ourselves storied traditions, as well as our own unique take on the Arma series; attempting to strike our balance between a structured "Milsim" unit and a lax community environment. We feel we accomplish this well.
During our Arma sessions, we do not tie ourselves down to a rigid, static fireteam/squad organization where members are assigned roles they must stick with for weeks on end; once an individual becomes a full member they are allowed to go whatever role they wish in any given mission given they can grab it first and can perform that role competently. Additionally, we do not tie ourselves down to a specific nation or branch of that nation, nor do we tie ourselves to any specific mission/operation type. Through all this we achieve a dynamic playstyle that keeps things fresh, interesting, and challenging.
Outside of Arma, we strongly encourage strong community ties in all sorts of various activities. We try to enjoy other games and platforms with each other in our down time, as well as cobble together events like Movie Nights from time to time. If there's one thing we want out of perspective members, it is the desire to become part of the greater community, and not just another blank face that we only see from time to time at Arma.
When it comes to Arma units, we know there are a lot out there, and we know that there are lots of complexities that go into your decision to choose a group. We thank you for your patience in looking into ours, and we hope that you enjoy your gaming experience no matter if you choose to join us or another group!
