About Zulu Alpha

Zulu-Alpha is a group formerly hosted by Arma.co.za, which was founded in 2010 and it's intention was to create a community hub for like-minded South African Arma 2 players. Our intention is to play Arma 2 using several realism mods, to simulate real world combat to a degree. Using the patrols as a basis, we've been actively creating and taking part in missions, both COOP, against the AI and against several international Arma groups.

Since 2010, the group has had a shared server hosted at a games server company. As of 2012 we're running our own server, customised and opitimised to our needs. We also have our own Teamspeak server, which is shared with the Les Grognards gaming community.

At present, the community is known as Zulu-Apha, which consists of dedicated players, who have committed themselves to an extensive selection and training program which encompasses everything from small unit tactics to JTAC procedures.

OP Deadlight – WARNORD

March 3, 2016 in WARNORD

Sign up and full WARNORD

Scheduled for Sunday the 6th of March 2016

Description:

1. SITUATION

Situation Time: 17:30 hrs

Lighting: Last light at 19:30 hrs

Weather: Unlimited Visibility, Partly Cloudy

After a successful 2-week campaign on Bystrica, Zulu-Alpha returns to Altis for some well deserved R&R. What could be more relaxing than motorized patrols on a recently liberated island paradise.

There have been been several months of peace on Altis after an attempted coup by FIA rebels wishing to make the island an independent state. This after severe political tensions in Greece due to the current refugee crisis in the EU.
We have received some unconfirmed civilian reports of small groups of FIA forces in the North-East of Altis. We have maintained and intensified patrols to try to confirm these reports but as of yet we have found nothing.

Dragon 2, 8-men strong, was dispatched to patrol the main road to the town of Oreokastro at 12h00 today.

Dragon Actual received last communication with Dragon 2 at 14h00, and they have since missed two check-in windows.

For now we are under the assumption that the heavy mountainous terrain is interfering with radio communications, and that Dragon 2 has undertaken some unsanctioned leisure time in the famous tavern in Oreokastro as they did on last week’s patrol.

Dragon 1 is to follow the original patrol route and recover Dragon 2 for debrief and PT.

We have a UH-60M on standby should the need arise, however HQ has requested we save fuel where possible due to budget cuts.
